I like this camera. It’s not going to turn you into David Bailey or Helmut Newton overnight, but if you want having something in your pocket you can take a reasonably decent quick snap with for around £100, and then share it with your friends, it could be exactly what you are looking for.
The Samsung SH100 is a 14megapixel compact camera, small enough to take anywhere. It will also record 720p HD video. First of you are going to need a SD card as the built-in internal 6.9meg memory will let you take just one full size pic (I picked up a 4gig card online for less than £5).
Probably the standout feature of the SH100 is the built in Wi-Fi capabilities. This means you can take a pic and email it to anyone straight from the camera (or back it up to your computer).
You can also upload pics straight to your Facebook (and Picassa) accounts too. I think they missed a trick by not adding Twitpic, or some way of adding a pic to a twitter account, but it’s possible to get round it by syncing your FB account to your twitter (google it).
If you have an Android Smartphone there is also a cool app that will let you use your smartphone as a remote control for your SH100. It’s not something you are going to use that much but is great for capturing wildlife and another ‘extra’ usually seen on more expensive models.
I took it to Thrigby Wildlife Park near GT Yarmouth to see how it coped in the wild…..
