But that's not all. Samsung also announced an update to SMART CAMERA 2.0, the company's smart phone app 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 Wi-Fi function to a single button. Remote Viewfinder allows you to use your smart phone as a camera display. With Smart Camera 2.0 and a WB30F, you'll be able to instantly share and backup all your newest memories with family and friends.
