Samsung Galaxy S Camera Coming?

Samsung Galaxy S Camera

When Polaroid dropped its Android-based compact camera at CES 2012, we knew it was a sign of what was coming.  Honestly though, I didn’t think it would take as long to see an Android-powered camera from another manufacturer.  This month, however, Nikon introduced the Coolpix S800c compact camera that runs Android 2.3 under the hood.  I think we’re about to see an onslaught of these in the next few months – particularly at CES 2013.

The latest rumor of a non-phone Android-powered camera comes from Samsung.  The electronics giant (who just got spanked by Apple over patent infringements regarding Samsung’s popular smartphones’ similarity to the iPhone) may be putting together the “Samsung Galaxy S Camera.” [Read more...]

Samsung MV900F with Wi-Fi Sharing and 180° Display

Samsung MV900F

The Samsung MV900F is a new Wi-Fi enabled point and shoot camera, which also sports a 180-degree display. The MV900F features a 16MP backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and also captures 1080/60p HD video.

With similar connected functionality to the new Panasonic SZ5, the Samsung MV900F allows you to share photos instantly.  However, the Samsung model does not appear to be equipped with the ability to integrate with any iOS or Android model (like the SZ5).  Instead, the MV900F interfaces with Samsung’s line of SMART televisions, Blu-ray players, mobile PCs and smartphones.  That said, you can share directly to Facebook, Photobucket, YouTube and other online services directly from the camera via Wi-Fi.

The 3.3-inch AMOLED display flips up on top of the camera for a 180-degree view from the front of the camera – as opposed to the more traditional tilt/swivel displays that swing out to the left side.

The Samsung MV900F retails for $349, ships in August 2012 and is available here at B&H Phot0.
