First Look: Samsung's DV150F Smart Camera is an inexpensive problem-solver

1:27 /

With dual LCDs and built-in Wi-Fi, the DV150F helps put an end to bad smartphone self-portraits.

Hi. I'm Josh Goldman, Senior Editor with CNET, and this is the look of the Samsung DV150F Smart Camera which combines 2 features Samsung's been working into its cameras for a few years now, Wi-Fi and 2 LCDs, one in the back and another small one in front. Now you know all those awkward social network profile photos of people standing in front of a bathroom mirror with their smartphones. This front screen helps put an end to that since you can use it for self-portraits. If you're trying to take a picture of a kid, the screen can be set to playing animation too, or it will also show a countdown for self-timer shots. Then once you've got your shot, you can use its built-in Wi-Fi to directly send all those shots to a smartphone or tablet, or you can use it to send photos by email, upload to sharing sites, or back them up to Cloud storage. Not bad for a camera that sells for less than $150. Unfortunately, Samsung used a CCD sensor which isn't nearly as good as a BSI CMOS sensor when it comes to low-light shots. So it's best used outdoors in good lighting, but if you take a lot of self-portraits in places other than bars and nightclubs, this isn't a bad option for the money. I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Samsung DV150F.
