Samsung starts CES run with DV300F camera

Starting what's likely to be a flurry of introductions related to CES, Samsung has brought out its next-generation of DualView cameras in the DV300F. The 16-megapixel camera has a new version of the signature 1.5-inch front display that's more flush with the body, reducing its effect when left off. Wi-Fi is new to the DualView series and can share photos and videos with Facebook, Flickr, Picasa, and YouTube without either a computer or an Eye-Fi card.

The networking can alternately be used to back up content stored on the camera's microSD card storage. DLNA media sharing and SkyDrive cloud storage similarly work from the camera.

As a conventional camera, the DV300F carries a 5X, 25-125mm equivalent lens and can record video at up to 720p. Samsung keeps up the tradition of introducing novelty software features, such as a unique Motion Photo feature that can record video of a subject while keeping the background still. Funny Face and Split Shot let photographers tweak the looks of people in a shot or composite three shots together, and an Artistic Brush filter turns a shot into a color or monochrome artist's sketch.

Americans will have access to the new camera in March, when it will cost $199.

    "...Americans will have access to the new camera in March, when it will cost $199..."

    And if Americans care about their economic future...the won't buy it or anything else from Samsung, HTC or LG.

    Boycott Samsung

    These copyists don't deserve any business since they don't respect Apple patents, product look and feel, store displays and even ads.
