It seems as if Samsung just can’t wait for CES to roll around. Not only has it announced a couple of new phones in the last 24 hours (the Galaxy Ace Plus and Galaxy M Style), it has now unveiled the latest of its DualView point-and-shoot cameras, the DV300F.
It was back in 2009 when Samsung effectively created a new category of camera with the DualView TL225 which featured a second LCD screen on the front of the camera to make the likes of self portraits easier to capture. It also allows for you to see a large countdown timer on the front and even keep children staring at the camera by playing some animations.
Now Samsung has included Wi-Fi functionality in the latest model, the DV300F, to allow users to email photos easily or share them online on services such as Facebook, Picasa, Flickr and YouTube.
Wireless transfer of images from the camera’s microSD card to your PC will also be available but if you’re a Mac owner you’re out of luck, as Samsung says the DV300F isn’t compatible. Cloud storage services such as Microsoft’s SkyDrive or Samsung’s own AllShare Play will also be accessible direct from the camera.
Looking at the camera itself, it features a 16 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom and 25mm wide-angle lens and even features the Motion Photo mode to allow you create those bullet-time clips of moving objects made famous in the Matrix.
The Samsung DV300F will be available in black, navy, silver and red and will cost $199 (£130) when it arrives in March.
