Samsung has had success in the markets of phones, as well as cameras. The company decided to mesh the two together, to come up with Samsung SH100, which compliments both the phone, as well market for cameras.
Samsung’s SH100 boasts a 14 mega pixel camera, offering picture transfer and wireless connectivity, along with touch screen operation. The camera has different screens that can display various applications, which can be swiped through easily by the use of a finger.
In terms of usability, the camera gets a positive rating. The SH100 has a comfortable touch screen, along with applications for Facebook and YouTube, which enables users to upload their images and videos on the social networking site and video streaming site. By the use of wireless connectivity, images can also be transferred easily into the computer, or another device such as a separate camera.
The screen of the digital camera is the regulation 3-inches, boasting a 230k dot resolution. However, the screen is put forward in a widescreen aspect ratio. Camera shooting or video shooting are both an extremely comfortable task in the Samsung SH100.
In terms of speed, the camera is quite fast. The 14mp camera readies itself up in just two seconds, whereas the response of the LCD is extremely fast as well. If users turn on the Smart Auto mode in the camera, the SH100 responds quickly to every new subject framed, adjusting the specifics of focus in an automatic manner, as well as the exposure, as the person pans with the device.
Moving towards a very important aspect, the battery, Samsung SH100 can take up 200 pictures before one battery bar declines. In this regard, the battery in fact is quite outstanding. However, if the camera has a prolonged use, the battery compartment gets warm to a considerate level. However, this does not affect the overall performance of the camera.
However, the quality of the picture is by far the most disappointing feature of the camera. Samsung SH100 is just like a usual pocket camera in terms of picture quality. Details of the shooting are lost if pictures are captured in bright light, whereas pixelated images appear otherwise, if there are some ups and downs in the atmosphere, just like an average camera.
All in all, those individuals who want to capture better quality images than their usual Smartphones are capable of, and transferring them directly to social networking sites or other websites or simply emailing them, Samsung SH100 will prove to be very handy. However, those who are seeking to find a good camera that takes semi-professional pictures, this should definitely not be your choice.
