Samsung SH100 Digital Camera Review


The Samsung SH100 has the distinction of being one of the first and one of the cheapest Wi-Fi enabled digital cameras. This functionality is poorly implemented however, so we're left with a strictly-average ultracompact easily surpassed by the...

This has not been a positive review, but it’s hard for us to feel bad about it, since we're just going to turn around and recommend another Samsung.

Samsung SH100: Brilliant In-Camera Features for a Bargain Price


At first glance, the Samsung SH100 ($200 as of July 13, 2011) looks like a run-of-the-mill, low-priced touchscreen camera. It's built for very casual snapshooters, and its core specs aren't exactly mind-boggling: The SH100's 14-megapixel CCD sensor may...

Great image quality and features for the price ; Very small and light ; Fun-to-use shooting modes ; Wireless sharing and remote-control features

Touchscreen can be unresponsive ; Has a toylike build ; Uses MicroSD cards for storage ; Digital stabilization only

With an array of wireless sharing and remote-control options, the Samsung SH100 has a generous feature set for a $200 camera. But it's mainly for young, casual shooters, due to its toylike build and lack of manual controls.

Samsung SH100 Preview


Samsung has released yet another Wi-Fi enabled digicam, with the introduction of their new SH100. This ultra-compact shares many of it's features with the ST80 we reviewed in 2010, including 14-megapixels, a 3.0-inch touch screen LCD, Smart Auto, and...

We're not sure the much-touted Wi-Fi is worth the unremarkable performance

Wi-Fi capability

Unimpressive color results; Poor resolution in actual use; Unpleasant handling

This has not been a positive review, but it’s hard for us to feel bad about it, since we’re just going to turn around and recommend another Samsung.

The Samsung SH100 is a new digital camera to hit the market with Wi-Fi and social media integration included. Come and take a look and see if the SH100 will set the new standard for all digital cameras in the market today.

Test Lab: Samsung SH100 digital camera review


The Samsung SH100 offers connectivity and fun, but hides an otherwise average point and shoot

Compact size ; Fun creative options ; User friendly interface

Picasa access, but not Flickr ; Lengthy shutter delay ; Poor low light performance

Taken just as a point and shoot camera, the Samsung SH100 is merely an average overall performer. It takes visually pleasing photos, provides decent HD video, all packed in an attractive, but non-descript compact body that fits nicely in your pocket.

Samsung Unveils the SH100 14.2 MP Camera


Nothing about the title of this post sounds exciting. We've seen plenty of 14.2 MP cameras, even WiFi enabled ones, on the market already. However, the interesting bit about the new SH100 is that it allows you to use your Android phone as a viewfinder...

Samsung SH100 Digital Camera


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Samsung SH100


The Samsung SH100 is a compact, point-and-shoot 14-megapixel digital camera that is cheap in price, but still offers good quality images. It has lots of shooting modes, wireless connectivity as well as a touchscreen display, but the lack of manual...
