LAS VEGAS — Samsung has announced its latest digicam at CES 2011. The SH100’s big feature is built-in Wi-Fi, something Samsung has already tried in the curvier, dumpier looking ST80 back in July. The new camera keeps the 14.2 megapixel sensor, 3-inch touch-screen LCD and 720p HD video, and extends the zoom range to 26 – 130mm (35mm equivalent). GPS is also included for geotagging.
The camera has almost no buttons, relying instead on a phone-like touch interface. And talking of phones, if you’re using a Samsung Galaxy S Android phone, you can hook the two together over Wi-Fi, letting you review shots and remote-trigger the camera’s shutter.
Uploading to YouTube or Facebook can be done over a known network or one of Boingo’s mobile hotspots.
The SH100 will be on sale in March, for $200. That’s $50 less than the ugly older model.
