Samsung introduces the Wi-Fi enabled ST80 point-and-shoot

The forthcoming ST80 point-and-shoot, from Samsung, will allow its customers to upload photos and videos while on the move. The 14.2 megapixel camera has built-in Wi-Fi to cater to the immediate sharing of important moments with friends and family via email, or through social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube. The slim compact also features in-camera editing and comes with technology to synchronise with other wireless devices such as digital photo frames.
It comes pre-configured with a mobile broadband account with hotspot provider Boingo, allowing ready access to over 120,000 WiFi hotspots around the world and this will allow users to send still images and video to friends and family via email or instantly upload to social networking sites.
The 3.62 x 2.18 x 0.72 inch, 14.2 megapixel digital camera has a 3x optical zoom lens and features Samsung's Smart Auto (Still & Movie) scene recognition technology, which decides on the best settings for each shot based on the current shooting environment and there's also a new Smart Crop feature, for in-camera image editing, which the company claims will allow users to crop images taken at any angle or slant and then straighten them as if they were originally taken straight on. The Samsung’s ST80 will be available for US$249.99 from September.
