Samsung is not afraid to break new technological ground with its various digital cameras released in the past 18 months, such as the DualView cameras that contain two LCDs and the new Galaxy family of cameras that blur the line between smartphones and cameras. Samsung also has begun releasing feature-rich DIL models that use interchangeable lenses, continuing its trend of offering some of the most interesting cameras in the market.

Here are the best new Samsung cameras.

Samsung DualView DV300F

There is an aspect to photography and cameras that many camera reviewers forget about -- the "fun" factor.

Cameras should work well, certainly, but they also should be fun to use, especially point and shoot cameras. With that in mind, Samsung's latest DualView camera, the DV300F, does a really nice job of succeeding on both fronts.

With its two LCD screens and Wi-Fi capability, the DV300F is perfectly built for sharing photos via social networking. This camera also shoots photos that are of a much higher quality than you'd expect to find in the sub-$150 price range.

In addition, the DV300F has 16.1 megapixels of resolution, a 5X optical zoom lens, and 720p HD video. Read Review

Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless ILC

Samsung

In my review of the Samsung Galaxy Camera, I appreciated the camera's LCD screen and menu structure. But I was disappointed in the Galaxy Camera's image quality.

Samsung appears to have fixed this problem with its Samsung Galaxy NX camera, which is a mirrorless DIL model that was recently announced. It quickly earned an award.

The Galaxy NX will have a 20.3MP APS-C sized image sensor, which is going to help you provide high-end photographs. You'll also find a 4.8-inch touch screen LCD running the Android OS 4.2, Wi-Fi connectivity, 4G connectivity, 8.6 frames per second recording, and 16MB of internal memory.

Samsung Galaxy Camera

Samsung

Samsung is currently showing off a new model called Galaxy Camera, which will be running the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, further blurring the line between digital cameras and cell phones.

The Galaxy Camera is expected to have a 16MP CMOS image sensor, can shoot 1080p HD video, built-in Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G support, a 4.8-inch touch screen LCD, and a 21X optical zoom lens. Those are some impressive features.

This innovative camera both made my list of 2013's best cameras and earned a TIPA awardRead Review

Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom

Samsung

Samsung's latest smartphone and digital camera merger is an interesting option, as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom provides a 10X optical zoom lens. The S4 Zoom has a full functioning smartphone along with a nice point-and-shoot camera.

The optical zoom, along with the right hand grip and a 16MP image sensor, give the Galaxy S4 Zoom quite an advantage over most cell phone cameras. You also can shoot full HD video with this camera, which carries an impressive 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen.

As I found in my Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom review, the smartphone feature of this model is a little awkward to use, because the lens housing makes it a little tough to pull the device out of a pocket in a hurry.

The Galaxy S4 Zoom, which is available in white or black, is only offered through a cellular contract with AT&T as of the time of this writing. Read Review

Samsung NX30 Mirrorless ILC

Samsung

I've long been a fan of the Samsung NX series of mirrorless ILC cameras, including the NX10 and NX20, as they have a terrific combination of easy-to-use features and outstanding image quality.

The latest model in the NX series, the Samsung NX30, follows along those same lines and easily makes the list of the best cameras of 2014.

The NX30 includes 20.3MP of resolution, 9 frames per second burst mode, a tiltable electronic viewfinder, a 3.0-inch touchscreen LCD, full HD video recording, and built-in Wi-Fi and NFC wireless connectivity. In other words the NX30 has just about every high-end feature and add-on that you'd expect from this innovative manufacturer. Read Review

Samsung

Samsung's recently announced mirrorless NX300 DIL camera is now available for purchase, marking the first 3D mirrorless camera from Samsung.

The NX300 has a 3.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen display that also is tiltable. The NX300 offers 20.3 megapixels of resolution, Wi-Fi connectivity, full HD video recording, and 3D capabilities when paired with the new 45mm F1.8 lens from Samsung. It can use any interchangeable lenses made for NX mirrorless cameras.

The NX300 is an award-winning camera according to both TIPA and EISA, and it's available in either black or white camera bodies.

Samsung NX2000 Mirrorless ILC

Samsung

Samsung's family of DIL cameras have provided some great models over the past few years, including the NX10. The latest Samsung DIL camera is now available, and the NX2000 looks like another very impressive camera.

The NX2000's specification list is certainly eye-catching. It offers 20.3 megapixels of resolution in a large image sensor, 8 frames per second in burst mode, a 3.7-inch large touch screen LCD, and full HD video recording. You can connect the NX2000 to Android and iOS mobile devices or use built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.

The NX2000 is available in pink, white, or black camera bodies and matching colors of NX lenses. Read Review

Samsung ST150F

Samsung

The thin Samsung ST150F camera provides a high-quality f/2.5 lens and includes built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, all for less than $150.

You can use a remote viewfinder app to merge the ST150F with your smartphone, allowing for remote control of this camera.

The ST150F includes 16.2 megapixels of resolution, a 3.0-inch LCD screen, a 5X optical zoom lens, and full HD video recording. Samsung is offering this model in dark blue, white, black, pink, or silver body colors.

Samsung WB2100

Samsung

Samsung has become a camera maker that's well known for its thin long-zoom cameras, which makes the recent appearance of the Samsung WB2100 seem a little odd.

The WB2100 has a design that more resembles a DSLR camera, with a thick camera body and a large lens housing. Even though it looks a bit different from other Samsung models, it's still a powerful option. You'll receive a 35X optical zoom lens, 16MP of resolution, full 1080p HD video, and an articulated 3.0-inch display screen.

You can make use of a variety of manual control modes with this model, too. The WB2100 is available in black, white, or red.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Smartphone Camera

Samsung

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone camera has 13 megapixels of resolution, which is one of the largest resolution numbers you'll find in a smartphone camera. While the 13MP of resolution doesn't guarantee that the Galaxy Note 3 will create high-quality images, this smartphone camera makes good use of that resolution amount, allowing it to surpass many other smartphone cameras in terms of image quality.

As with most smartphone cameras the Galaxy Note 3 struggles in terms of an image quality comparison to many standalone digital cameras.

The Galaxy Note 3's camera produces images that are comparable to a beginner-level point and shoot digital camera in all but one area -- the lack of an optical zoom lens. Even the most basic point and shoot digital camera has a zoom lens available. Still if you want to carry only one device and you can live without an optical zoom lens, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone camera is going to create photographs at an acceptable level for sharing across social networks.

You'll also find an extremely large 5.7-inch touchscreen LCD with the Galaxy Note 3. Read Review

Samsung WB250F

Samsung

Samsung has done a really nice job of late creating thin ultra zoom cameras that give you a variety of great features, including built-in Wi-Fi. The latest model, the WB250F, is another strong camera along this line.

One of the best cameras in 2013, the WB250F includes an 18X optical zoom lens, a 14MP CMOS image sensor, full 1080p HD video recording, Wi-Fi, and a 3.0-inch touch-screen LCD. You also can download a Remote Viewfinder app to allow your smartphone as a camera display.

Look for the WB250F to be available now in black, white, red, or gun metal gray.

Samsung WB850F

Samsung

If you're someone who just can't decide between a point and shoot camera that provides great telephoto capabilities or one that can shoot wide angle images, Samsung may be ready to come to your rescue.

Samsung's recently released WB850F provides a 21X optical zoom lens, while it also can shoot at a wide angle of 23mm, providing photographers with the best of both worlds.

In addition, the WB850F has a built-in WiFi capability, which is a nice feature for uploading a photo quickly to social networking sites.

The WB850F's other photography-related features include 16.2MP of resolution, a 3.0-inch high-resolution AMOLED screen, and full HD video capabilities. Read Review
