Samsung SH100: Specs, Price and Release Date

Any of you who follow OSM regularly will know that we have been recapping on the cameras that were showcased at CES 2011. So far we have brought you reports on a whole host of different cameras and camcorders such as the Samsung NX11, the Panasonic LUMIX FX78, the Casio Exilim EXZR100 and the Sony Handycam HD3D camcorder.

Now we are reporting on what could be a new breed of camera. The Samsung SH100 can actually connect with smartphones, which coupled with decent specs makes this perhaps the camera you have been looking for.

It has a 14.2 megapixel sensor and a 4.7 lens; it can record in 720p, it has a whole host of different shooting features, a 5 x optical zoom and of course WiFi connectivity. None of these are the most exciting features, it can also not only use the WiFi to upload pictures but if can be controlled remotely by using an Android connected device. This is a major step forward for digital cameras. Pocket-lint.com’s Chris Hall has done a full review of the device and you can also read more about it from Samsung’s press release.

Samsung has shown real creativity and innovation with this device, but they also haven’t priced themselves out of the market. This camera will be available in March with a price tag of a mere $200. That is a simply astounding price and would challenge anyone to find a camera as good as this for that kind of money.

What do you think of this device? Will you be picking one up in March? Let us know in the comments section below.
