Samsung has a knack of rolling out cameras with new features of its own, regardless of how the industry is moving. Following this tradition, that Korean electronics giant has now announced MV900F, which comes equipped with Wi-Fi as well as gesture control. Although other specifications of the camera are fairly normal, these two features are definitely makes the camera stand out.
With the Wi-Fi on the camera, you can easily click away and then share your photos right away on, say, Flickr or Facebook. With the 3.3-inch AMOLED display, you are able to get a fair idea of what you are clicking at. Moreover, the display flips 180 degrees along the hinges. This means, you can see yourself on the display even when you are pointing the lens at yourself. In terms of taking self-portraits, this 180-degree display is a very useful feature.
The camera comes with f/2.5 lens and 5x zoom. Both of these can be easily controlled through gestures. The gestures may seem a little complicated in the start. For instance, if you want to zoom in or zoom out, you have to move your arms in a circle. Similarly, if you wish to take a photo with the help of gestures, you have to move your arm up and down twice.
Even though they are slightly complicated, the gestures work quiet well. You just have to be within the minimum range of the camera for it to discern your gestures correctly. MV900F also comes with a number of rather interesting filters and scene modes. You can add a number of tweaks to your photos. You can even add backgrounds to your shots.
The camera will hit the shelves on late August and will be available in a number of colors including white, black, pink and red. The price tag for the camera is set at $349.99.
