Wi-Fi Connectivity with DIRECT LINK
Experience the wireless advantages of the SMART CAMERA's Wi-Fi connectivity and truly intelligent features. The dedicated DIRECT LINK hot key helps you quickly connect to Wi-Fi networks while MobileLink, Social Sharing & Email, and Family Story let you share memories with friends and family around the world. There's also the Remote Viewfinder, AllShare Play, the Samsung SMART CAMERA App.—and more—all of which make it easy to connect to other devices.
Save pictures to your camera and phone- 
Instantly
AutoShare
Simultaneously send every picture you take to your mobile phone via Wi-Fi connection—to make backing up and sharing your high-quality photos super easy. Set up AutoShare once and the camera saves it as the default setting. AutoShare also GPS tags your photos with your Smart Phone.
Total control, now more

3'' (75mm) hVGA Hybrid Touch 
User Interface

Presenting a user interface with twice the advantages. The Hybrid Touch User Interface offers two options: use the 5-way button to quickly move the cursor up, down, left and right to intuitively navigate the menu and make selections on the 3'' (75mm) hVGA screen. Alternately, when you want to enter text — such as an email address, for when you're sharing photos —simply input the characters on the touch screen, much like you would on a smartphone. Navigating controls and sharing images couldn't be easier.
Go far and wide for 
the perfect shots
24mm, 18x zoom
The whole wide world is yours to capture. Use the 24mm wide-angle lens to capture a quaint row of Tudor houses or a gushing, mile-wide waterfall — it can handle any sweeping panoramas, even those wider than can been seen with the unaided eye. There's also an 18x Optical Zoom that lets you quickly take stunning close-ups from far away, so you can get sharply rendered images of moving glockenspiel figurines atop a clock tower or of the colourful details of exotic birds in the wildlife park.
Capture brilliance in low-light settings
14M BSI CMOS sensor & Low Light Shot
A sunset beach party, a dimly-lit dance club — great photo opportunities don't always have the best lighting. Capture properly exposed images in low-light situations with the 14-megapixel BSI (Back Side Illuminated) CMOS sensor, which needs less light than conventional sensors. And use Low Light Shot to automatically select the best setting and merge three continuous shots into one, clear photo.
Stylish and Classic Design
Stylish and Classic Design
The quietly beautiful SMART CAMERA re-imagines the classic professional camera and brings it into the digital era. With a slender body, the design highlights its modern sensibilities with flashes of timeless elegance. Even the unobtrusive DIRECT LINK button maintains the sleek build. The impressive wide-angle lens helps entice your subjects to smile, while the pop-up flash surprises and delights.
The easiest way to shoot like a pro
Smart Mode
Stop being jealous of the pros with their big cameras, and start taking great shots. A quick tap of Smart Mode and you're set with various special modes. Capture perfect trails of light at night on a busy intersection full of red taillights or instantly capture a high-speed scene with Action Freeze. Let Rich Tone create extraordinarily surrealistic photos with colours that pop and express your artistic side. Just choose the one you want and shoot perfection.
Instantly rewind to the picture perfect moment
Best Face
Missed it With the Best Face feature that won't happen again. Use it to travel back in time after you've taken a picture to replace faces with the perfect moment. Use it to open eyes, replace a smile, or find that perfect expression. With the combination lightning fast burst shots and facial recognition, you can simply tap a face that's looking the other way, and tap again to replace it with expressions taken moments before the actual shot. It really is magic.

Full HD Recording
Capture 1920 x 1080 Full HD video with life-like colour and extraordinarily sharp details. Shoot longer too — the camera's H.264 format allows longer recording than a camera with MJPEG video does. When you're done, you can watch your brilliant HD footage large as life on your HDTV.

Full Manual Mode(A / S / M)
Full Manual (A / S / M) allows you full creative control. Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority settings let you experiment with shutter speeds and depth of field — for example, when you're shooting fast-moving images in low light. With Samsung cameras, you can capture exactly the photos you want.
 
Motion Photo
Motion Photo freezes the action around a moving subject to create a fun scene. Capture a friend dancing — then make everyone around him still as a statue. Simply shoot the footage, and then rub the area on the display where you want keep the movement. The photo around it will freeze—it's that easy.
