Easy Operation with Smart Touch Interface
The Samsung SH100's Smart Touch interface makes operation as easy as using the touchscreen on your smartphone. The 3-inch LCD features familiar drag-and-scroll functionality, along with a "Home" selection so that you can easily return to the home screen, no matter what you're doing. The crisp LCD display makes it easy to see what you're shooting in virtually any light.
Smart Auto 2.0 Creates the Perfect Shot
Using Smart Auto 2.0, the Samsung SH100 captures the perfect shot by analyzing key composition elements and selecting from 17 different photo and 4 different movie modes.
Thanks to its face/smile/blink-detection feature, the Samsung SH100 detects and adjusts the lighting on up to nine different faces at a time. The camera will automatically shoot the subjects when they laugh or smile, and prohibit the shot from happening if anyone's eyes are closed.
Digital Image Stabilization for Sharp Focus
When you're shooting in low light or zooming in on a shot, or when your camera is unsteady, digital image stabilization helps eliminate blurry results. This feature stabilizes your photos by changing their path to the image sensor before they are recorded digitally. As a result, your photos come out sharp and ideally focused.
Use Advanced Effects with Magic Frame
Create sophisticated images and poster-quality visuals with the Samsung SH100's Magic Frame feature. Magic Frame uses a predefined template to merge two photos into one. Select a background and the area where you want another photo. Place the captured image into the background and combine. The image you attach takes on the texture of the background.
Preview and Control Images with Remote Viewfinder
The Samsung SH100 includes a remote viewfinder feature in conjunction with your Samsung Galaxy Phone, so you can preview images and control the zoom using your smartphone. Many Android smartphones now feature a GPS feature, hence all of your images will embed geo-tagging to record your location.
Equipped with a wireless auto-backup feature, the Samsung SH100 automatically downloads your latest image and video files when it's within range of your PC. The camera even turns itself off after to save energy.

I LOVE the fact that you can charge the battery without taking it out of the camera (Like the way you charge a cell phone). No need for a separate charger, so one less piece of gear to lug around. The benefit of this also means you can charge it on an as-needed basis (I charged it through the power outlet in the rental car I was driving). This was the key feature that drove my purchase decision, and its strange that it doesn't get mentioned much in the marketing literature since it's a major advantage over the competition.
The touch screen interface is a disappointment though. If you are used to a smart phone type touch screen then this screen will seem slow and clunky. It feels more like a PDA from 2004 than a smart phone from 2011. Also, putting all the controls on the touch screen makes for some usability issues. I would prefer to see physical buttons for commonly used operations like turning the flash on and off. A camera is a dedicated device so should be optimized for common photography use cases.
The wireless connectivity was pretty cool, but again suffered usability issues. Connecting to wireless networks was a pain with the clunky touch screen. This is a long way from an iPhone or Android OS. Also, there doesn't seem to be any control over the name of the album or the subject of the facebook post. The wireless connectivity is is a very cool idea, but it still has some way to go before being truly compelling.
At the end of the day I think my money was well spent. Samsung is on to a good thing and I hope they continue evolving this product line.
First, the camera comes with a touchscreen interface for most of the functions. Sadly, it also comes with a stylus which, in my experience, isn't optional to use in many situations (such as typing) - at least with my large fingers. Even worse - there isn't a place to store the stylus within the camera itself. Instead, it clips and hangs awkwardly from the lanyard. While a generally small nuisance (and perhaps a non-issue for those with smaller fingers), it would have been much nicer if the screen was sensitive enough to work via touch or there were discreet navigation buttons.
The biggest issue for me, however, has to be the software running on the camera. The UI isn't very pretty and is awkwardly organized. It feels very hastily thrown together. Again, this is a minor disappointment, but something that should have been easy to fix. Unfortunately, that isn't all. The software is also quite buggy! I had found several issues within the first few minutes (where was the QC?!) which took hours to resolve. For one thing, logging in to Picasa was a real pain as there were issues with the software recognizing both my email address AND password. The login for Picasa should be the same as my Google login. However, my account is associated with several email addresses and only one of them was accepted for some reason (and it wasn't my normal gmail.com account, it was a tertiary address I rarely use). Even worse - there's a serious bug in the password handling that prevents it from recognizing a password with any special characters!Read more ›
It turns out this camera has a firmware update from July 29, 2011. I wasn't able to upgrade the firmware with the included (on the camera's internal storage) software; you should try to do it that way, but instead, I copied the contents of the firmware .zip to the root of the Micro SD card. After upgrading the firmware the camera's menu system is much more usable.
Pros: Compact size, H.264 movie mode, never have to plug it into the computer to get the photos off due to the WiFi, large, bright touchscreen
Cons: Flash takes 5-10 seconds to charge after taking a photo, works best in outdoor light, doesn't use a standard USB cable
