The new range is designed to make it easy to share and store images – wherever you are in the world. The Auto Backup function means cables are no longer needed to backup the images you've taken and the built-in Wi-Fi feature means you just need to find a café with free Wi-Fi and you'll be sharing and storing you images before you've got back home. If you don't want a camera with Wi-Fi built in, there will be versions of the WB150 and ST200 cameras without it. The WB850F also supports GPS, Live Landmark, MapView and has a digital compass.

If you want to take more control over how your camera shoots images the WB850F and WB150F feature full manual controls as wells as Smart Auto, available on all new models, which identifies and automatically selects the most appropriate of its scene modes to use. All three cameras feature Live Panorama, making it easier to capture wide, panoramic shots and features such as 'Magic Frames' and 'Fun Backgrounds' are also available in-camera.

As with most cameras that are released now the new Samsung range offers video recording options with the WB850F capturing detail in 1080/30p Full HD and 1080/50i while the WB150F and ST200F capture video at 720/25p HD. You can also add motion to one part of a still image with Motion Photo.
