WB150F Sports Respectable Functionality


Samsung WB150F Samsung's WB150F SMART Long Zoom Digital Camera (Black) separates itself from the status of a mere point-and-shoot with WiFi functionality for instant sharing and "cloud" storage. When in a hotspot with the WB150F you can upload to social networking sites, sync the camera with other "smart" devices - such as a TV, phone, or tablet - and store files on the Microsoft Skydrive. It's easy; once you're in a WiFi hotspot, just connect using the camera's log-in browser. Additional features of the WiFi connectivity include the use of Auto Backup, for transferring your photos to your PC with a touch and the Remote Viewfinder, for operating the camera from your smartphone, among others.

When it comes to the camera's shooting specs, the WB150F sports respectable functionality, as well. A 14 MP CCD image sensor allows for capture of not only 14 MP still images, but also 720p (30fps) video. A 24mm Schneider wide-angle lens, with 18x optical zoom and Dual Image Stabilization, also helps you capture clear, precise images. And the 3.0" (7.6 cm) LCD screen provides a generous platform on which to compose and review shots or scenes. Additional features include a full manual mode (A / S / M), Samsung's Smart Filter 3.0, and Live Panorama. Jan 10, 2012
