Samsung announces SH100 Wi-Fi enabled compact camera

Samsung announced today the launch of the new SH100, a compact Wi-Fi enabled camera that delivers great shots that you can share over the internet and social networks. The Samsung SH100’s built in Wi-Fi can automatically back up your shots to your PC by only pushing two buttons, or by using DLNA to wirelessly connect to your HDTV and see your photos and videos right away. Wi-Fi enables you to upload your pictures instantly to your social networking sites such as Facebook, Picasa or Photo Bucket, or email them to individual email addresses straight from the camera.

To make the upload process of large files easier and quicker, the SH100 includes an account with mobile hotspot provider Boingo, giving you access to over 200,000 Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide. The SH100 offers the same 14.2Mp sensor, 3.0 inch touchscreen LCD and HD video recording capabilities of the previously released Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi camera, but comes with a more useful 26-130mm equiv. zoom lens. Samsung SH100 will be available from March 2011 for approximately $199.99.
