Samsung continues its dedication to an all-wireless lineup with the svelte MV900F. With a 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and 5x optical zoom starting at f2.5, performance may turn out to be quite good. The back real-estate is almost entirely taken up by a touchscreen that flips out and all the way up to face frontwards, a nice touch for self or group portraits. You can also control the camera from your smartphone or upload photos directly to an online photo sharing service. Samsung has gone a step further, too, by enabling a few hand gestures that the camera will recognize, enabling some camera control without any phone or remote at all. Not bad for such a tiny camera, although price is a bit hard to stomach. There still isn't much out there about this camera as far as reviews.

Samsung Reviews

Known more for their smartphones than their cameras, Samsung offers the most connected line of imaging products for those who love the instant uploads from their cell phone but want to step up in quality.

Samsung has lead the way in the camera industry when it comes to sharing digital images—and even taking them. The Samsung NX3000 has a feature that allows you to wink at the camera to snap the photo, designed for selfie lovers. Some of their latest models can share images with a phone just by tapping the two devices together.

For those looking for the best image quality with the most connectivity, Samsung's mirrorless models are the way to go. While they feature the connectivity of a Samsung, they have large sensors and decent processors too. You'll likely pay a bit more over a camera without wi-fi or any connectivity, but for many the difference is well worth it.

Samsung's Galaxy cameras go beyond just connecting with wi-fi and add 3G so users can upload without sending it to a smartphone via wi-fi. Samsung offers a few budget models too, and while you get what you pay for applies to the image quality, not very many budget cameras include wi-fi.

Samsung has also taken style to heart. Many of their cameras feature a faux leather wrap, giving them a classy look.

If you are looking for a connected camera, Samsung is the manufacturer to consider.
