The Samsung SH100 is a pretty standard, but quality, Wi-Fi digital camera. It packs an impressive 14.2MP, has 5x optical zoom and takes MicroSD and SDHC cards.
But it’s also got a hidden secret. Download the associated Android app for your smartphone and you can control the camera over WiFi using your phone, take photos with it and even view your photos afterwards.
First up, here are the SH100 camera’s features covered – it’s got digital image stabilisation to correct all those mistakes you make with shaky hands or taking photos in bad light, and records movies at a resolution of 1280x720p at 30fps. It also has Samsung’s own AllShare which means you can share all your photos with other AllShare-supported devices around the home that are on your network. Finally, the Wi-Fi capabilities allows you to transfer images wireless, automatically backup files over WiFi and upload photos to social networking websites.
Using this free app from the Android Market you can view the image that’s on the screen of your camera, adjust settings and timings, take the photo then GeoTag it, all from your smartphone. It’s initially available for Samsung Galaxy S but will be hitting most other Android devices by May this year.
Gives new meaning to the phrase “there’s an app for that”, huh?
