A Direct Link button on the top of the camera allows users to assign a wireless function that makes sharing images and video easily with friends and family.

A new Samsung SMART CAMERA App for the Android platform, which is downloadable from Samsung Apps service, allows smart-phone users to connect the WB250F via Wi-Fi and edit, share and back-up images that are shot. Combining three different intelligent elements in one touch, the SMART CAMERA App. integrates the upgraded capabilities of Remote Viewfinder and Mobile Link as well as the new AutoShare  tool that enables users to control operations from shooting to sharing.
