Samsung today announced the 16-megapixel MV900F Wi-Fi enabled SMART compact digital camera with a 180-degree flip-out MultiView 3.3-inch touchscreen display. In addition, a unique feature called Gesture Shot uses motion-sensing technology to allow users to zoom and snap a photo with simple hand motions from across the room.
The MV900F mainly adds Wi-Fi connectivity to Samsung's MV800 flip-out screen camera, while most other specs are the same. With an F2.5 bright lens to capture crisp, detailed photos even in low-lit environments, a powerful 16.3M pixels BSI CMOS sensor that produces high-quality photos and video, and a wider 25mm lens for fully framed images, the MV900F is a high-performing and versatile camera. The 5x optical zoom also makes it easy to shoot distance subjects.
The innovative 3.3-inch, 180-degree flip-out display on the MV900F helps shutterbugs easily capture and frame images from any angle, whether it's a large group of friends or a full-body self-portrait. Additionally, taking self-portraits or group shots are easy thanks to Samsung's unique Gesture Shot, which applies motion-sensing technology so that users can control the camera remotely using hand gestures alone. By simply making a circular hand motion, users can control the camera's zoom functions. When the shot is properly framed, users move their hand up and down to snap the photo.
Even when subjects aren't ready for their close-up, the MV900F has a range of functions to easily create professional beauty shots. With Samsung's new Beauty Palette feature, users can choose from ten different make-up options to smooth, brighten and add color to profile shots directly in the camera. No computer needed — all the editing is done using the intuitive touch screen display.
The 16.3-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and brighter F2.5 lens help deliver top-notch image quality even in low-light situations without the typical bleaching effect of artificial light. The Low Light Shot mode automatically selects the camera's best setting when shooting in low light conditions. By taking three continuous shots and merging them together into one, this feature helps to create an image without the blurs and noise. In addition to low-light settings, the MV900F is also designed for ease of use in the brightest sunlight. The upgraded display boasts a 3.3-inch WVGA AMOLED touch display for seeing clearer images even in intense light.
The MV900F instantly connects with Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket and YouTube and devices without the need for pesky wires or cables. At the touch of the SMART LINK button, or through the easily navigated touch screen, it is easier than ever to instantly share and securely store pictures. The MV900F seamlessly interfaces with Samsung's line of SMART televisions, Blu-ray players, mobile PCs and smartphones for a truly unique and integrated ecosystem with painless sharing and synching across all devices.
Boasting 1920×1080@30fps Full HD video recording, the MV900F creates high-quality movies that users would be proud to share. Combining the best of still photography with dynamic videos, the Motion Photo feature cleverly brings subjects to life while everything else in the background appears at a standstill. Thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity, video masterpieces can be uploaded to YouTube in no time.
