Samsung has announced the new Samsung WB2200F with a 60x optical zoom lens, and a dual grip design that makes the camera look more like a full-frame professional Digital SLR rather than an ultra zoom bridge camera. The camera features fullHD video recording, built in Wi-Fi and NFC for instant sharing, manual shooting, and the 60x optical zoom covers the equivalent of 20 - 1200mm in 35mm terms. To help keep shots steady, apart from the large grip, the camera also has optical image stabilisation, as well as an electronic viewfinder on the rear. Price and release date is not yet known.

– Photographers with an eye for detail can now get even closer to the action with the Samsung WB2200F, a Super Bridge Long Zoom camera featuring an incredible 60x Optical Zoom. This premium model is intuitively designed and offers a powerful optical performance ideal for photographers who value high quality imagery, while the long life battery allows users to indulge their passion for longer periods of time than ever before.
Tag & Go : Simply Tap to Share Memories
Boasting the latest Smart Connectivity features, the WB2200F is equipped with NFC and Wi-Ficapabilities so that photographers can share their creations easily and quickly. The brand new ‘Tag & Go’ feature even goes one step further, seamlessly connecting the WB2200F with smartphones through simply touching the two devices together, no configuration required. This then enables a host of clever features designed to improve both usability and functionality. Photo Beam sends photos being viewed on the camera straight to smartphones, while AutoShare saves images straight to smartphone in real time, removing the burden of manually backing up pictures. With Remote Viewfinder photographers can use their smartphone to control the WB2200F, a great solution for setting up group or individual shots, while Mobile Link allows the transfer of selected images to smartphones to help organize the viewing experience.
Featuring a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, the WB2200F produces images alive with color and rich in detail so that the resulting pictures are just as real as the scenes themselves. The outstanding 60x Optical Zoom allows photographers to capture more intimate shots and get closer to their subject, ensuring that images taken from afar retain impressive detail and accuracy. With the option to operate the zoom at double speed, or to go directly from zero to 60x zoom, the range of flexible shooting options provide greater image control to help secure the desired shots. With a 20mm Ultra Wide angle users can pack even more into the frame to create vibrant images which don't miss a thing. 1080/30p Full HD Movie recording delivers high quality video, which can be enjoyed in in brilliant detail on the 75.0mm (3.0-inch) hVGA LCD screen that also displays the device’s EVF.
With a dual-grip, portable and sleek black casing and solid professional appearance, the WB2200F is comfortable and easy to hold. Its Electronic Viewfinder makes photographer’s jobs easier and more pleasurable, and the device’s i-Function control is another advanced element of its offering that facilitates full manual control accessed through the touch of a button. Amateur and expert photographers alike can benefit from Smart Mode, a range of automatic modes which offer the ideal settings for any shooting scenario. Whether it is capturing the beauty of a setting sun with 'Sunset' mode or the excitement of a fast paced sporting event with 'Action Freeze' mode, Smart Mode does the work so that users can simply concentrate on enjoying the photography experience.
