The Fuji FinePix F800EXR is a new 16MP point and camera with a 20x optical zoom lens (25-500mm equivalent).

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.

I’ve tried a number of digital photo frames; however, I’ve always hated the process of updating the photos by putting files on an SD card and then having to transfer them over to the internal memory of the frame. eStarling may have a solution with their new TouchConnect Wi-Fi photo frame.  This new frame allows you to update your frame wirelessly and automatically through a variety of online services.

The eStarling TouchConnect boasts integration with Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, RSS Feeds and Gmail. With an easy, one-time set up an eStarling TouchConnect can receive photos (and videos up to 20MB in size if e-mailed to the corresponding Gmail address) from all these places as they are posted. And with 802.11n WiFi, a touch-sensitive screen and automatic over-the-air firmware updates, the eStarling TouchConnect is one of the most user friendly frames on the market. -eStarling

The eStarling TouchConnect is available from Adorama at a current price of $200.
