Ridgefield Park, NJ—Samsung Electronics America’s MV900F is the newest digital camera in its Wi-Fi enabled Smart line. Following the success of the MV800, the MV900F also features a 180º “MultiView” display, to make it easier to capture and share creative self-portraits from any angle. And with Samsung’s gesture shot, which uses motion-sensing technology, shooters can zoom and snap a photo from across the room using hand motions.
In addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, the MV900F provides a 5x optical zoom, 25mm f/2.5 bright lens to help capture photos even in low light, and a 16.3 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor engineered to produce high-quality photos and video.
“The MV900F’s stylish design and incredibly bright and fast lens, makes it the ideal camera for a night out on the town—as it will capture fantastic videos and photos, even in dimly lit places,” said Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of Mobile Entertainment, Samsung Electronics America. “Now more than ever, we want to share these experiences instantly with friends and family, so the MV900 will take images consumers will be proud to share using the camera’s Smart Wi-Fi features. The unique MultiView display, intuitive touch screen and cutting-edge Smart camera technology mean that superior quality images can be captured from any angle and shared at any time.”
The 3.3-inch, 180º flip-out display on the MV900F helps shutterbugs capture and frame images from any angle, whether it’s a large group or a full-body self-portrait. And gesture shot, which applies motion-sensing technology so users can control the camera remotely using hand gestures alone, also aids in taking self-portraits. 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.
To further assist in taking better people pictures, Samsung added a new beauty palette feature that lets users choose from 10 makeup options to smooth, brighten and add color to profile shots in-camera. No computer is needed as all the editing is done using the intuitive touch-screen display.
Also new is the low light shot mode, which automatically selects the camera’s best setting when shooting in low light. By taking three continuous shots and merging them together into one, this feature helps to create an image without blur and noise. In addition to low-light settings, the MV900F is also designed for shooting in the brightest sunlight with an upgraded 3.3-inch WVGA AMOLED touch display.
The first camera in the MultiView line to incorporate Wi-Fi, the MV900F instantly connects with Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket and YouTube, as well as devices, without the need for wires or cables. At the touch of the Smart Link button, or through the navigated touch screen, it is easier than ever to share and securely store pictures. The MV900F also interfaces with Samsung’s Smart televisions, Blu-ray players, mobile PCs and smartphones for an integrated sharing ecosystem that synchs across all devices.
In addition to its photo functions, the camera records 1,920×1,080 Full HD video at 30 frames per sec. Users can also combine still photography with video using the motion photo feature, which brings subjects to life while everything else in the background appears at a standstill.
Available in white and black versions, Samsung’s MV900F will reach retail in late August. $349.99. samsung.com
