Samsung’s somewhat plain looking SH100 digital camera has a number of extremely interesting and unique features. They are all the more interesting, since the camera’s retail price is listed as $199 (available in March).
The SH100 provides built-in WiFi. Combining this with some onboard intelligence provides these great sounding features:
– Send photos wirelessly to your computer or social networking sites
– Use an Android smartphone as a remote view finder (Galaxy S only? Probably not)
– Use phone GPS to geo-tag photos taken using the SH100
– Support for TVs with DLNA
I wasn’t in the market for a new low-end compact camera. But, the SH100 may change my mind.
