Samsung SH100 review

A tech-riddled camera with a 3-inch touch-screen and built-in Wi-Fi

TODO alt text

There's no denying that the features of the SH100 are interesting. Samsung have exploited the opportunity to use the feature for sharing, expanding it from the most popular Facebook and YouTube to include Picasa and Photobucket.

Picture quality of the SH100 is good. We like the colours that are reproduced and the camera handles exposure well.

We liked

We love the exploitation of the Wi-Fi. Not just the expanded websites to upload to but also remote control use with a Galaxy phone and the DLNA compliance. As long as the touchscreen pen is used, the screen is very responsive.

We disliked

Digital noise is an issue right down at the lowest setting, which is annoying, but unless it's viewed at full size, it's unlikely that it'll be noticed.


With prices starting at just over £100, the Samsung SH100 has plenty to offer. It's suitable for most users but people going travelling will find it especially useful thanks to the Wi-Fi capability. If you need a pocket camera to take on holiday or you're a social networker that needs immediate connection for your pictures, then this is the camera for you.
