Samsung MV900F The fully loaded Wi-Fi-enabled ultracompact has Samsung's flip-up display for easy self-portraits and features for better low-light photos.

Samsung continues to put Wi-Fi into just about every camera it's making and the MV900F is no exception.

The 16-megapixel ultracompact features Samsung's unique MultiView display, a 3.3-inch AMOLED touch screen that flips up so you can more easily get shots below or above eye level, or put it all the way up for self portraits.

Out in front is a 5x f2.5-6.3 25-125mm lens. The brighter-than-usual maximum aperture should help keep it from using high ISO settings when you have less light. Combined with its back-illuminated sensor, it should be pretty decent at taking dimly lit bar and restaurant shots without the need for a flash.

Then, use the built-in Wi-Fi to send pictures and video straight to your smartphone. Or, if you have Wi-Fi Web access, upload direct to sharing sites or send an e-mail. When you get home, it can wirelessly backup your shots to a computer or play them back on a network-connected TV or other home theater devices.

Like Samsung's other point-and-shoot cameras, the MV900F is loaded with creative filters and effects for both movies and photos. There are options for easy panorama shots and HDR photos, too. (You can read more about its features in the slideshow above.)

Available in white and black versions, the MV900F will be in stores in late August for about $349.99.
