Samsung has added to its growing range of Wi-Fi enabled SMART cameras with the launch of the MV900F. The compact picks up where its predecessor - the MV800 - left off, inheriting the model’s innovative 180-degree flip-out display.
The MV800 scored well when we tested it towards the end of last year, and Samsung’s SMART camera technology has certainly been making headlines over the past few months, so the marriage of the two is something to get excited about.
At the core of the MV900F sits a 16.3MP BSI CMOS sensor, paired with a 5x optical zoom with a maximum aperture of f/2.5 and 25mm wide-angle. As mentioned, the MV900F inherits the same flip-out display as found on its predecessor, although it now measures in at 3.3in as opposed to 3in.
As we’ve come to expect of all SMART cameras from Samsung, the MV900F’s Wi-Fi functionality allows instant connectivity between the camera and a range of social networks, as well as email and cloud-based storage.
One feature that really catches our interest is Samsung’s new Gesture Shot – it uses motion-sensor technology to allow control of the camera through hand movements. The camera’s zoom functions with a circular motion of the hand and, when the shot is ready to be taken, simply move the hand up and down.
The MV900F is going to be available in white, pink, black and red, although there’s no news on price and availability as yet.
