Samsung had a pretty jam packed CES press conference. It launched a slew of TVs, some new Windows 8 enabled laptops and lastly a set of new Smart Cameras. These smart cameras are essentially point and shoots and they include the WB250F, WB800F, the WB30F, DV150F, and ST150F. The reason Samsung calls these smart cameras is because using a Smart Camera app for iOS and Android users can share and edit images on their smartphones and this app also works like a remote viewfinder and a mobile link via Wi-Fi that’s built-in to the products.
