So it begins! Samsung SMART WIFI camera range will upload directly to SkyDrive


Samsung has announced a new range of super-zoom cameras which come equipped with sensors such as GPS, digital compasses and connectivity via WIFI which enables a range of features, including automatic back-up of pictures taken.

The WB850F, WB150F and ST200F allows users from any Wi-Fi hotspot, to email photos or share them on social networks such as Facebook and Picasa or post videos to YouTube in a few simple steps.

The camera’s Digital Compass can also give users their location and tell them how far they are from certain locations, while the MapView function allows users to download maps and use their camera to help explore new cities.

To us the most interesting feature is the ability to upload pictures directly to SkyDrive. With Windows 8 featuring heavy SkyDrive integration, especially in the picture gallery, and of course similar with Windows Phone 7, any pictures taken will automatically show up on devices.

Bring along SkyDrive enabled electronic picture frames and the whole photo taking circle is complete. Hopefully we will see many more devices with such SkyDrive-based connectivity enabled.

Will this be a feature our readers will be looking for in their next camera? Let us know below.
