Samsung Announces New Smart Cameras At C.E.S - Samsung has announced six new smart cameras at C.E.S 2013.
Samsung has evolved its innovative Wi-Fi technology to enhance its acclaimed Smart Camera, originally announced at CES 2012, by creating Smart Camera 2.0. New functionalities and upgrades allow users to shoot and share their cherished photography instantly, revolutionising the connective camera experience and allowing consumers to be in complete control across the breadth of the Smart Camera portfolio. The ‘One Click, Simplify’ concept enables connected devices to seamlessly connect so images can be shared flawlessly in one motion through the striking interface. Designed with smartphone users in mind, this interface combines touch-type and big screen functionality, creating faster editing and uploading to other devices and social media sites.
The unique Samsung Smart Camera App. builds on Samsung’s commitment to a connected world and the consumer’s love of applications for an effortless technology experience. This new feature enables smart phone users to download the application (available on both Android and iOS operating platforms) and connect with the pre-installed Smart Camera capabilities via a Wi-Fi connection to manipulate, share and back-up images shot across the range of connected Samsung cameras available. Combining three different intelligent elements in one touch, the Smart Camera App. integrates the upgraded capabilities of Remote Viewfinder and Mobile Link as well as the new AutoShare tool putting users in control from beginning to end of the connected photographer’s journey.
The new flagship camera in the WB long-zoom series makes it easy for users to achieve excellent quality pictures from a camera that is stylish and classic in design. The WB250F (and WB200F) boasts outstanding optical performance to make capturing great photos easy, with 18x optical zoom, a 14.2 Megapixel BSI CMOS (WB250F) or CCD (WB200F) sensor and 24mm lens.

For photographers that want to make the most of this, a full manual mode option gives complete control over the camera’s settings.
To make brilliant photography easy, the new WB cameras also incorporate features such as Best Face, which automatically selects the best facial expressions from a burst shot to create group photos where everyone looks their best, as well as SMART Mode and Motion Photo features, allowing users to achieve pro-standard quality and creativity under any condition. With the addition of Wi-Fi capabilities, users can share high-quality photos quickly and easily.
