Samsung SH100 is a WiFi-enabled digital camera

I’m sure you’ve probably experienced taking a photo with your camera of something cool and immediately want to share it on your Facebook. The problem is, you don’t have a PC or laptop or if you do, you don’t have a way to transfer your photos into it. Well, Samsung has a solution for that.

The Samsung SH100 is a WiFi-enabled digital camera which is going to be handy if you have a way to share your wireless connection with you or have a wireless network at home. Imagine not having to remove your card or connect a USB cable just to transfer your photos? You can simply connect to your machine via WiFi and transfer your photos wirelessly. Or if you’re out somewhere and want to upload photos or videos that you took immediately, just find a WiFi connection and you can use the SH100 to upload to Facebook and YouTube.

You would probably say that most cameras can do that already but can your phone really take decent-quality photos? It probably can’t, well not the same quality as that of a dedicated digital camera with a larger sensor anyway.

Another cool feature this camera has is its remote shutter and remote viewfinder. With your Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet, you can position the camera from a distance then use your phone to see what the camera is seeing, then also use it to tell the camera to take the shot. Now how cool is that? Gone are the days of framing a group shot only to see that another person was cut off and do another take.

Outside that WiFi feature, the Samsung SH100 is a basic 14.2 megapixel camera that can do 5x optical zoom on its 26mm wide-angle lens. Nothing fancy with the lens or sensor but it has a digital image stabilization and can do 720p HD video recording. At the back you’ll see a 3-inch LCD touch display by the way and you’ll get all of these for just Php10,990.

    any test shot of this camera?

    • Will try to score a review unit soon but i think it’s just your average point-and-shoot quality shots.

    I knew it! Sabi na nga ba this will come up rin e. Damn, I should have patented the idea when I thought of it before. Tsk.

    Does the camera have a way to resize a file for uploading or take a shot and save it with two different dimensions?

    I think it would be best to upload a smaller sized pic to the social networking sites but still have a full-size pic for saving/printing/editing/whatever.

    • I think Facebook automatically resizes your photo when uploading. Even in your desktop browser it will resize it for you unless you choose to upload a high quality version.

  • The sync-ing with the samsung phone/tablet works with wifi only?

    • Not sure yet, maybe it’s Samsung All Share app or probably DLNA. Will try to score a review unit soon.

  • Where can I buy this camera locally? Is it already available for purchase?

    I wondering about the shutter lag. I hope it’s quick.

    This is pretty exciting to buy. Something I could use with my SGS!

    I have this samsung sh100, well I just thought that if there is a way to load a software capable of internet browsing since the camera is wifi and internet capable. Hope the samsung would develop software or third party program that can be used as internet browser such as opera for android smartphones.
