Samsung Wi-Fi Camera Allows Remote Control via Android
We don’t normally cover digital cameras here at pocketnow.com. Today we’ve made an exception for the Samsung SH100. What sets this camera apart (and makes it relevant to our readers) is what it can do with its built-in Wi-Fi.
Of course you can use that connection to automatically back-up your photos to your computer, or use DLNA to connect to your HDTV or digital picture frame. What’s more remarkable is the ability to use your Android-powered phone to view a preview image, zoom, and snap a picture. Theoretically, your camera and Android could be in different locations, turning this combination into a high-tech spy camera of sorts.
The camera itself isn’t half-bad. It features a 14.2-megapixel CCD sensor, 3-inch LCD display, and has a 5X optical zoom. Additionally, the SH100 won’t break the bank; it’s scheduled for release this March for under US$200. No word on whether Samsung will be releasing an app, or if you’ll actually need a Galaxy S phone as the information implies.
