Conclusion: The Samsung SH100 offers some exciting wireless-sharing features, like tight integration with Samsung Android phones. But noisy images and a lack of optical image stabilization limit this pocket camera's appeal.
Pros: Sharp images. Robust wireless-transfer features. Can use the display on a Samsung Galaxy phone as a remote viewfinder.
Cons: Poor low-light performance. Sluggish boot and recycle times. Wireless video transfers to YouTube are limited to QVGA resolution.
Conclusion: With prices starting at just over £100, the Samsung SH100 has plenty to offer. It's suitable for most users but people going travelling will find it especially useful thanks to the Wi-Fi capability. If you need a pocket camera to take on holiday or you're a social networker that needs immediate connection for your pictures, then this is the camera for you.
Excerpt: Samsung has a foot in both camera and phone markets, so why not bring the two closer together, operationally at least? That’s the thinking behind the 14MP SH100, which offers wireless connectivity and image transfer, touch screen operation and a control layout resembling phone-style apps spread across successive screens accessed with a swipe of the finger. Anyone trading up from a smartphone should feel at home.
Excerpt: WiFi is everywhere these days – in coffee shops, on buses, and even built into cameras. Samsung’s SH100 is one of the first examples of these to become available locally, providing users with the ability to cameras to email photos without the aid of a computer. AllShare will let you broadcast your images and videos shot on the SH100 to a Samsung TV equipped with DLNA. You can upload images and videos to Facebook, Picasa, YouTube, Photobucket, and Samsung's own service.
Cons: Web upload options limited to those provided - no ability to add your own, Touchscreen performance could be better, Low-light performance isn't very good
Excerpt: At first glance, the Samsung SH100 looks like a run-of-the-mill, low-priced touchscreen camera. It's built for very casual shooters, and its core specs aren't exactly mind-boggling: The SH100's 14-megapixel CCD sensor may have been an impressive feature a few years ago, but in these days of ever-inflated pixel counts, it's standard issue in the compact camera world. Same goes for its 5X optical zoom lens and 720p video recording at 30 frames per second.
Great image quality and features for the price, Very small and light, Fun-to-use shooting modes, Wireless sharing and remote-control features
Touchscreen can be unresponsive, Has a toylike build, Uses MicroSD cards for storage, Digital stabilization only
Summary: Die meisten Digitalkameras benötigen zum Verschicken von Aufnahmen die WLAN-Karte Eye-Fi. Nicht so die Samsung SH100: Sie ist mit WLAN 802.11b/g/n ausgestattet und nutzt einen WLAN-Zugangspunkt zum Versenden der Daten.
