Digital News Report – Samsung Electronics, Co., Ltd., unveiled the SH100 digital camera that has built in Wi-Fi technology at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Wi-Fi will allow the SH100 digital camera to send photos wirelessly to computers, the internet, social networking sites, and your friends and family all with a touch of a button.
Because of the digital camera has Wi-Fi technology, Samsung made it possible to use the Galaxy S smartphone to use as a remote viewfinder. Remember the family shots where you hit the timer and hope you get a good photo? This would help you take a photo of whole family and you could time it to the best photo. It also could be helpful with shots that you would have a hard time reaching up to see the viewfinder. You could come up with new angles to shot your photos.
Another neat feature of the Samsung SH100 digital camera is that along with the Galaxy S smartphone you can record the GPS location where the photo was taken. This could be very helpful in keeping track of a long vacation journey. That way you won’t have to remember where that photo was taken, it will be mapped out for you.
The SH100 can automatically transfer your photos to your PC computer with only two button selections. The PC Auto Back-up function will even work if your PC is turned off using the Wake-on-LAN controls to turn on the system. This is great for those that dread a bun of USB cables and putting off taking the photos to your PC. Also you can use the same Wi-Fi transfer to send the photos through DLNA to HDTV’s that support this technology. That way you can have a slide show of your photos ready to go. In addition you can upload your photos to a number of popular websites, you can also email to specific people. There is even HD video recording capabilities and you can upload to Google’s YouTube website.
The Samsung SH100 is expected to ship sometime in March 2011, with a retail price of $199.99.
