Apparently, WiFi is big over at Samsung. They announced the Samsung DV300F camera a few days prior to the CES, which was WiFi capable, aside from being incorporated with the twin LCD ‘DualView’ feature and a mini browser.
Joining Samsung’s range of WiFi-enabled P&S cameras are the ST200F, WB150F, and WB850F. Because of the WiFi functionality, you can automatically share photos on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. You can also create backup copies of your images by uploading it to cloud storage services like Samsung and Microsoft. All three have optical image stabilization and live sweep Panorama features.
The Samsung ST200F is the most inexpensive of the three, retailing at $199. It comes with a 3-inch LCD display and a 16.0 megapixel CCD.
