The 12.2 megapixel Samsung PL90 features a built-in USB connector allowing you to capture images and upload them to your computer without the need for cords or cables.

The 14.2 megapixel Samsung ST80 features in-built Wi-Fi, High Definition (HD) video recording and a 3-inch LCD touchscreen that allows you to share all your images and videos with a few simple touches of the screen. The perfect companion for the savvy social networker, the unit also lets you upload all your photos and videos directly to your favourite social networking sites such as Picassa, Facebook, YouTube or Photobucket by logging into a local network. If you want to share your memories, you can scroll through your camera’s address book to email photos directly.

Samsung’s ST80 also features the company’s AllShare technology, so you can stream the pictures stored on your camera directly to DLNA compatible devices around your home, such as HDTVs and digital photo frames.
