Today at CES 2013, Samsung announced a series of new SMART and WiFi capable point-and-shoot digital cameras. While the WB250F has been called the Flagship of the WB long-zoom series, there is another more affordable sibling, the WB200F, which offers the same 18x optical zoom, HD video capture, large touch screen display, and a host of other nice features that make the camera super-simple to use.

What's the difference? While both the 200F and 250F feature a 14 megapixel image sensor, this 200F comes with a CCD sensor, which is a little slower, less capable in low-light situations, and cannot certain frame rates and resolutions of HD video. 

And while it may not have all the capabilities of its pricier big brother, the WB200F is Wi-Fi capable, which means you can still run it along with Samsung's recently updated mobile app, SMART CAMERA 2.0. Available for iOS and Android, the upgraded app boasts new features like AutoShare, which sends photos from your digicam straight to your smart phone. Direct Link allows you to assign your favorite WiFi function to a single button. Remote Viewfinder allows you to use your smart phone as a camera display. And Mobile Link is a fast and easy way to share you pics online.
