Samsung simplifies Smart Cameras

 

Samsung says its ‘One Click, Simplify’ concept “enables connected devices to seamlessly connect” for image sharing, “revolutionizing the connected camera experience.” The AutoShare on its new cameras sends full-resolution images to a paired smartphone as they are shot.
The Smart Camera app also provides remote viewfinder and mobile link functions.

There are two new long-zoom models:
• The WB250F combines an 18x zoom with a 14-megapixel sensor and 3-inch touchscreen. It has a full manual mode, and is $250.
• The WB800F has a 21x zoom, 16-megapixel sensor, and a touchscreen for $300.
Also: The DV150F adds a 2.7-inch LCD on its front for “DualView” self-portrait taking. It has a 5x zoom, and is $150.
The WB30F is a ‘mini model,’ the company says, with a 10x zoom in 17mm-thick body, for $180.
