Samsung DV300F is First DualView Camera with Wi-Fi
Samsung loves its DualView display cameras, so much so that they have introduced the yet another Dual-View camera to the series – the DV300F. The DV300F sports a 1.5” front facing LCD screen along with the traditional rear-facing LCD. But what is especially unique for this new camera is that the DV300F is also a Wi-Fi camera. Or more specifically, it is the first DualView model to offer Wi-Fi connectivity.
The built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy for camera users to wirelessly upload photos to Facebook, Picasa, Flickr and YouTube, or to wirelessly e-mail them directly from their camera. Users can also choose to use the Auto PC Backup function to have photos automatically and wirelessly transferred to their home PC.
But aside from its nifty wireless features, the DV300F is a capable camera in its own right. For starters it packs in a 16 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom and 25mm wide-angle lens. The camera also boasts some other unique features, like the Magic Frame feature that includes 12 fun background templates. The DV300F also has the ability to create poster-quality art, its Picture-in-Picture function lets users insert one image within another, the Split Shot feature lets users merge up to three different images together, the Funny Face features lets users add goofy grins, silly noses or even crazy eyes to snaps of friends, the Artistic Brush feature can transform any shot or video into a black and white or full color sketch, and finally – the Motion Photo feature can freeze time around a moving subject for dramatic effect.
The Samsung DV300F digital camera will be available in a choice of black, silver, navy or red and has been designed with a sleek, seamless, and rounded form factor. The DV300F will retail for $199 when it is released in March.
