Travel Gadgets : Samsung launches the Samsung Smart Wifi Camera WB150F

I was invited yesterday to attend the launch of the new Samsung SMART WIFI Camera WB150F at the Rockwell Tent. The tent was full of blogger friends, techies, photographers, personalities and print media. The invitation did not mention specific details about the camera but I decided to attend just to checkout its new technology.

The new camera was actually a first of its kind and it will totally change the way we share memories with its SMART Wi-Fi technology. The Samsung SMART Camera WB150F, the newest member of the WB line-up, features an impressive 18x optical super zoom that captures incredible detail of even distant subjects. With its outstanding 14.2MP resolution, images are captured with such clarity and can be easily viewed on its 3.0” LCD display.

Housed in a compact, light and durable body, the new zoom camera from Samsung makes it the perfect lifestyle companion this summer. Besides the advanced optical zoom and image quality that the WB range is known for, the Wi-Fi capability of the Samsung WB150F enhances and facilitates the sharing and saving of images – wherever you may be in the world. Of course, one of the best parts of discovering new places and cultures is sharing your experiences with friends and family back home.

Using the Wi-Fi capability of the new Samsung SMART Camera WB150F, the sharing and the saving of pictures are quicker and easier than ever before. From any Wi-Fi hotspot, users can share them on social networking sites such as Facebook, Picasa and Photobucket or post videos on YouTube in a few simple steps. Or you can simply email your photos straight from the camera. Now you can easily share your pictures whenever and wherever you are in the Philippines or abroad. The new Samsung SMART Camera line-up also demonstrates digital convergence with other gadgets. Users no longer have to worry about unearthing a tangle of cables to transfer images over their PC by simply using the Auto Backup function. You can also share your photos instantly to your friends using the Mobile Link. Just download the Mobile Link app to your Samsung Smartphone and let the sharing begin.

Live Panorama to get everyone in the shot!
Live Panorama allows you to capture even more of the action, facilitating wide panoramic shots without missing any of the detail – from sprawling mountain peaks to large groups of friends. This function allows the easy capture of large scenes by simply holding down the shutter button and sweeping the camera across. Users can even preview the whole scene they have just captured via the LCD screen. Fun feature to add a twist to your photos.

Why not add some more fun by getting creative with your photographs?
With Split Shot you can divide the screen using the preset layouts and create different photographs by simply blending them together to create a whole new view to your photos.

    I travel with an iPad. I’ve taken it overseas, used it on road trips, navigated with it on city streets and used it.
