Samsung Electronics has brought its WB150F Wi-Fi enabled camera to Australia.
The WB150F’s key component is Smart Wi-Fi, which enables three key features. The device contains an automatic PC backup function for wireless uploads of photos to a personal computer, social media sharing apps for uploading photos to the likes of Facebook, as well as remote view finder to take photos with the camera from compatible Android smartphone devices.
Logically, an Internet connection is required to take advantage of this Smart Wi-Fi capability, although for those who own a smartphone (or similar) which can serve as a hotspot, it is not an issue.
“By embracing Wi-Fi connectivity, the WB150F provides consumers with a smart way of sharing and saving photos while they are out capturing those memorable holiday moments,” Samsung digital imaging business unit manager, Craig Gillespie, said.
Designed for use as a travel device, the camera offers a 14.2 megapixel sensor with 18x optical zoom, allowing for 720/730p HD video capture. It also features a three-inch VGA AMOLED screen.
Additional functionalities of the device include live panorama, split shot, magic frame, picture in picture, and funny face which alters features of photos.
The WB150F is available for $249.
