Samsung WB1100F bridge compact set to target adventurous photographers

Samsung has introduced the WB1100F to its addition of Smart Cameras in its 2014 range. Sitting below the WB2200F, which was announced at the same time as the WB1100F at CES 2014, the Samsung WB1100F has a 35x optical zoom and a 25mm wide-angle lens.

Behind the powerful zoom lens lies a 16.2MP CCD sensor that provides an ISO range of 100-3200. Much like the Samsung WB2200F, the WB1100F shoots in the JPEG format only, with HD video recording at 1280×720/30fps.

To compensate for handshake, the Samsung WB1100F features a dual image stabilisation system, better known as Dual IS, while Wi-fi and NFC is supported for wireless sharing of images. This technology also allows the WB1100F camera and Wi-fi/NFC equipped smartphones to work in
tandem, enabling features such as Photo Beam, which instantly transfers
images being viewed on the camera to the paired smartphone.

transfers images to smartphones automatically, as they are being taken,
to avoid the worry of having to back up images whilst with MobileLink,
users can select the exact images they wish to transfer to their
smartphone to make organising shots simple. Remote ViewFinder allows
smartphones to take control of the WB1100F so that photographers can put
themselves in the picture.

The Samsung WB1100F weighs 462g (without battery) and has dimensions of 124×86.5x96mm.

Pricing and availability of the Samsung WB1100F was still to be confirmed at the time of writing.
