About Samsung DV300F

The Samsung DV300F is an advanced digital camera (Silver/Blue) featuring Dual LCD technology and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. An impressive 16 Megapixel 1/2.3" (1.1 cm) CCD sensor delivers excellent image quality. Add to that a 5x optical zoom and 25 - 125mm wide-angle lens capable of focusing as close as 2.0" (5.0 cm) in macro mode and you've got the capability to capture images and video in stunning detail, even at a distance. Completing the recipe for superb image quality is a 1.5" (3.8 cm), 61,000-dot front-facing LCD screen, complementing the rear 3.0" (7.6 cm) 460,000-dot TFT LCD, which helps you nail even the most challenging shots. Frame yourself perfectly as you hold your camera out at arm's length!

Thanks to the integrated Wi-Fi connectivity, you can email your images or upload them to social media sites like Facebook, Picasa, Flicker and YouTube for sharing. Photos saved onto the camera's microSD memory card may be saved to a home PC wirelessly via the Auto PC Backup function! Cloud services such as Samsung's AllShare Play and Microsoft SkyDrive enable you to store and share your pictures from any location. The camera features a log-on browser that enables you to use public Wi-Fi hotspots.

Child Mode features an animation that helps keep young people focused. Additionally, a visual Self Timer simplifies the process of putting yourself in the picture. Other fun and useful features include Magic Frame, which has 12 neat background templates and also gi ves you the ability to produce poster-quality art, great for sharing or hanging on the wall. The Picture-in-Picture function enables you to insert an image within another. Impress your friends by combining a still image and a video clip and immediately uploading your creation to YouTube or other social networking sites!

But there's more: The cool Split Shot feature lets you merge as many as 3 different images to produce your own artistic masterpiece. You can even import photos from other cameras. With the Funny Face function, add silly smiles, comical noses or crazy eyes to pictures of friends and family--in a total of 8 different modes! Using the innovative Artistic Brush feature, instantly take a portrait, landscape shot or even a video clip and turn it into a black and white or full color sketch--the same way an artist would. Then, proudly display your artistic creation on the camera's LCD, or by simple upload to social networking sites to give everyone the chance to look at your work--which you might even decide to make your latest profile picture!

The exciting Motion Photo feature lets you feel like a Hollywood blockbuster filmmaker: Freeze time around a moving subject for dramatic effect. Capture your friend leaping in the park while keeping everyone else around him or her still. The camera displays a sleek, seamless and rounded form factor for chic style without compromising simplicity of use or image quality.

Great happy-medium!

By

from New Jersey

This was my first camera, and it's a great happy-medium. It's better than my phone camera, yet lacks the bulk of a DSLR. The quality is great for a digital camera, and all those features and modes are great. Especially that front screen so I can see what the pictures going to look like! It's a great camera for the average consumer!

Dual LCD DV300 camera

By

from Colorado

Great little camera so far. The picture quality is great. Takes good photos in the dark when in the correct setting. Love the size of the camera and the wi fi feature. Can send photos to my phone. Can't wait to use it again.

Love this little camera!

By

from Illinois

The camera is small enough that I have it on a lanyard which allows me to use it at a moment's notice & enjoy double hand freedom. Really appreciate the children setting as I take classroom photos of elementary children and my own 5 grandchildren. Gets 30+ six-year olds looking in the correct direction & laughing at the cartoons --what I had thought was an impossible task.

Great all around pocket camera w extras!

By

from Jacksonville, FL  -  Photo Enthusiast

We recently bought & took this camera overseas on vacation. It worked beautifully. Pic quality is very good, while video quality is excellent (compared to past Canon pocket camera). Love the upload capability. We were able to upload our pics to Facebook from camera while still overseas. While small and sometimes hard to see, the front-facing viewfinder is useful for timed shots of yourself.

high utility 'smartness', shaky network

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

2 best things I liked about this camera: front LCD screen and video animation that engages kids while u take their smiley snaps. the video clips play on the front LCD and u can really get results that you will never get otherwise especially when shooting infants and toddlers. 1 thing that I did not like is its unreliable wifi connectivity. pics do not upload to cyberspace easily. needs multiple attempts most of the times. otherwise it is a technological miracle in amateur world

Samsung DV300F

By

from N.J.

A photo review site said that the Samsung DV300F would allow remote control from an iPad. It does not. It does allow wifi connection to download pix, but not shutter, focus, etc. Adorama did accept the return & credited my card quickly, even though it was not their fault.
