Smartphone cameras still have some ground to make up before they can truly replace dedicated point-and-shoot, and the divide only gets wider with the release of cameras like Samsung's DV300F. The newest addition to Samsung's DualView line, the DV300F sports a pair of LCDs, one of which is a front-facing 1.5-inch screen to make sure those narcissistic shots come out just right before you upload your mug to Facebook or Google+.
It also has Wi-Fi connectivity baked in so you can upload email or upload your images to social media sites straight away. Alternately, images saved onto the camera's microSD card can be transferred to a home PC without any wires by using the Auto PC Backup function.
"Our aim is to continually be at the forefront of innovation and maintain our leadership within the DualView market, pioneered by Samsung," stated Mr. Myoung Sup Han, senior vice president and head of digital imaging business, Samsung Electronics. "The new DV300F model is the embodiment of this goal. This latest model with the DualView LCD, Wi-Fi connectivity, ultra premium styling and the latest creative features, demonstrates Samsung’s unwavering commitment to innovation within the digital compact camera market, as well as our ability to consistently meet the needs of our customers."
As for the core features, the DV300F boasts a 16MP sensor, 5x optical zoom, 25mm wide-angle lens, and a selection of built-in tools and extras, such as background templates and the ability to merge up to three different images.
