CES 2014: Samsung WB2200F has a second hand-grip for portraits

1:33 /

This bizarrely-shaped camera also features two sets of shutters, and a 60x optical zoom.

Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2014. We're at Samsung stand taking a look at this is the WB 2200 F Camera and it has two, comes in two, hand grips. This time it has 60 times optical zoom for capturing those really far off subjects. It's got a 16 megapixels sensor and it's got built in flash as well. Those things are interesting, but they're not the most interesting thing about the camera. Obviously that's the dual handle control. Now that means you can hold it like normal to take landscape photos or you can flip it on its side and hold it like this, which is good for taking portraits. Samsung has even thought to add an extra zoom control and an extra wheel on here so that when you're taking those portrait photos, you don't have to reach around the camera to get to those controls. Now you probably thinking hang on while I hold it in landscape mode onto I'm going to accidentally start zooming in using the other control when my pinky finger touches it by mistake, but don't worry because there's a lock down here to stop that happening. It's got NFC and Wi-Fi direct powers and you can use Samsung's smart camera app, which is available on IOS and Androids to turn your phone or tablets into a remote view finder. Expect to see it on sale within the next few months. There's no word on pricing yet though. In the meantime, why don't you let me know what you think of the two-handle system. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES 2014. Go to CES. CNET.com for more.
