The Samsung SH100 And The Samsung Galaxy S Are Best Friends Forever

The Samsung SH100 is a point-and-shoot that you can get excited about. Within the rather pedestrian-looking cam are the goods needed to connect the camera to a Samsung Galaxy S phone for remote viewfinder control and geotagging fun. Clever, right?

The data connection also allows for direct photo uploads to Facebook, Picasa, and Photobucket along with local DLNA servers and compatible TVs.

The camera bits are par for the $200 price-point: 1/2.33 sensor at 14.2 MP and a f4.7 lens. But hopefully buyers can look past those lackluster specs and buy up the SH100 in droves because nothing would make us more happy than seeing the P&S form factor evolve into a smartphone companion.

  • Pairing a P&S with a phone is a great idea, IMO, but not so much in this case. Looking at the SH100′s specs, I think a better camera integrated into a phone would be better.

    What I think would be great is something along the lines of a Panasonic Lumix LX5 or a Canon S90 with integrated BT (or WiFi, or whatever option you want), allowing you to pair it with a smartphone for geo-tagging and sharing. Cross-brand compatibility would also be great.

    Of course, I’m probably just dreaming.
