The first models that come with Samsung’s Smart Camera 2.0 capabilities are WB250F/WB200F, WB800F, WB30F, DV150F and ST150F. The WB series are long-zoom models equipped with more and bigger lenses; the DV series are dual-view cameras that come with front-facing screen efficient for taking self-portraits; and the ST series that offer more stylish cameras still with pretty decent specs.

Samsung’s Smart Camera technology boasts about “One Click, Simplify” concept and capabilities of its snappers to connect through Wi-Fi networks and share photos as soon as they are taken. The company’s success in the smartphone market should have paved the way to produce touch-type cameras with bigger displays for easier and faster photo editing and uploading to social media sites and other devices.

The South Korean company also built its proprietary application dubbed as Samsung SMART CAMERA App, available for both iOS and Android users, which is a requirement so photos can easily be uploaded or shared from Smart Cameras to smartphone. It also integrates the functionality of Remote Viewfinder, Mobile Link and Autoshare.
