Samsung Announces the Availability of WB250F and DV150F SMART CAMERAs
RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning
innovator in consumer electronics, today announced the availability of
the first two models in the highly anticipated SMART CAMERA 2.0 line-up.
The WB250F long-zoom model and DV150F with the popular DualView form
factor - which both offer sophisticated Wi-Fi connectivity for photo
sharing, backup and an extensive range of other features - are available
now at retailers across the country.
"Samsung has spent the last few years really cementing its leadership in
SMART CAMERAs so in 2013 we focused on improving the experience even
more and making it as easy as possible for the consumer," said Ron
Gazzola, Vice President of Marketing for Digital Imaging. "Connectivity
has become the standard for digital photography but delivering
connectivity in the easiest way possible through all-in-one apps, touch
LCD screens and features like AutoShare truly differentiate Samsung in
the digital imaging space and give us a definite advantage."
SMART CAMERA 2.0, initially announced at the 2013 International Consumer
Electronics Show in January, is the evolution of Samsung's leadership in
connected cameras and focuses on ease of use with touch LCD screens and
an all-in-one mobile app. Aimed at smartphone users yearning for better
imaging performance, the new user interface combines touch-typing and
big screen functionality for quicker editing and uploading to devices
and social media networks. A new feature, AutoShare, automatically backs
up images and video to a smartphone or connected tablet device as they
are taken, which means that files are stored safely on the go. In
another SMART CAMERA 2.0 improvement, the Samsung SMART CAMERA App
merges Remote Viewfinder, MobileLink and AutoShare into a single app.
Smartphone and tablet users can download the app to their Android (News - Alert) or iOS
device to connect with Samsung's SMART CAMERAs via a Wi-Fi connection
and edit, share and back-up images with ease.
As the flagship model of the WB long zoom line-up, the WB250F enhances
the advanced optical zoom and image quality for which the WB line of
cameras is known, with SMART CAMERA 20 technology to facilitate even
easier sharing and saving images. With a classic, yet lightweight form
factor, the new 14.2-megapixel WB250F makes the perfect travel accessory
with an 18x optical zoom and a BSI CMOS sensor.
A hybrid interface with a touch LCD screen and five-way navigational
keys give users control to adjust the WB250F to their preferences, and
also features full manual (P/S/A/M) modes. Shutterbugs can be sure
they're capturing everyone at their best, with the Best Face feature,
which automatically selects the best facial expressions from a burst
shot. SMART Mode and Motion Photo features allow users to shoot like the
pros and achieve full creativity under any condition. And with Wi-Fi
capabilities, users can share high-quality photos quickly and easily.
The durable, pop-up flash on the WB250F can be titled forward to
backwards to create more flattering flash photography-and the
flexibility is sure to impress gadget lovers. The camera is available in
four sleek colors: white, cobalt black, gun metal and red.
The DV150F combines Samsung's unique DualView technology in the form of
a 1.48" (38mm) front LCD screen for easy self-portrait taking, with
Wi-Fi connectivity at the touch of the Direct Link button, that makes
sharing and storing photos simple and easy. Creativity is king with the
DV150F thanks to a variety of fun features such as Smart Filter 3.0,
Motion Photo and Magic Frame for producing artistic and unique photos
that beg to be shared instantly. Child Mode displays colorful animations
on the DualView front screen to keep children focused at the lens while
capturing memories. The DV150F packs a 16.2 Megapixel CCD sensor, 5x
optical zoom with an F2.5 25mm bright lens into a small, aluminum body.
Plus, in three stylish colors: cobalt black, white, and plum the DV150F
is a great camera for snapping photos on-the-go.

The WB250F (MSRP: $249.99) and DV300F (MSRP: $149.99) are now available
