Samsung Announces New Smart Camera Range at CES 2013
Samsung has expanded its range of smart compact cameras with new hardware announcements at CES 2013.
The manufacturer unveiled a host of devices equipped with Smart Camera 2.0 technology, which offers a range of shoot, share and editing options.
Samsung’s new smart snappers have been built with smartphone users in mind. The AutoShare feature enables images to be automatically sent to a handset over WiFi immediately after they have been captured.
Moreover, a dedicated app for iOS and Android turns handsets into a remote viewfinder for the camera.
The WB250F spearheads the new compact range, featuring an 18x optical zoom, 24mm lens and 14.2 million pixel CMOS sensor. The WB200F will also be available as a CCD sensor-packing alternative.
Samsung’s WB800F is a mid-range offering, sporting a 21x optical zoom, a 16.3 million pixel CMOS sensor and touch-screen functionality.
Samsung’s DV151F is a WiFi-enabled snapper with a 1.48-inch front LCD screen ideal for capturing self portraits, and a range of in-camera effects such as the Beauty Palette feature and Smart Filter 3.0.
The Samsung ST150 rounds off the new line of smart compacts, coming with an f/2.5 lens, 5x optical zoom, 25mm wide angle lens and a 16.2 million-pixel CCD sensor, as well as WiFi connectivity.
Pricing and availability for the new camera is yet to be announced.
