Budget Compact Camera

The Guys say...

The DV150F is this year's update to Samsung's Dual View series, and as such it is mostly the same as last year's DV300F. In fact, aside from the new model number, not much has changed. Both cameras have 16-megapixel sensors, though the DV150F's sensor appears to be a different model than the one in the DV300F. But with the same zoom range, sensor size, shutter speeds, aperture range, screen resolution, wi-fi capability, and front LCD size, it's hard to see much of a difference between these two budget cameras.
