Samsung SH100 review - Features

The Samsung SH100 is a compact camera towards the budget end of the market, but fills itself out with some key features - it has Wi-Fi connectivity as well as a 3in, 230k-dot LCD screen with touch-sensitivity for (literal) hands-on control.

As Samsung puts its oar into the Smartphone world with the well-received Galaxy series, the SH100 ties in some clever communicative features. Aimed squarely at Android phone users, the SH100's Remote Viewfinder feature enables your Android phone to act as an additional screen away from the camera as well as control the zoom and even snap a picture remotely.

Ensuring up to date features are at the forefront of the SH100's feature list, the camera also offers Wi-Fi technology. The camera is set up to make it easy to email or upload directly to Facebook, Picasa, YouTube or Samsung.com's own site. DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) and PC Auto Backup mean quick sharing to other home devices, such as an HD TV, are also possible. Of course a network connection is required, though the number of remote connection points around towns and cities these days means connectivity on the go isn't out of the question either.

Stills are catered for with a 14.6MP sensor capable of capturing ISO 80-3200 sensitivity, plus a 720p HD movie mode covers the moving image base. The 5x optical zoom lens ranges from a wideangle 26mm through to a mid-range 130mm equivalent.

A host of picture options includes Smart Filters for vignetting, soft focus, sketch and many others, plus Magic Frame mode that can add a variety of fun frames to your final image.
