Samsung may be betting the future on mirrorless cameras, but today's introduction of five new connected point-and-shoot cameras suggests the company isn't quite ready to ditch its old ways. Three new models are coming to the WB series of long-zoom cameras with the WB250F/WB200F (18x optical zoom), the WB800F (21x), and the ultra-slim WB30F (10x). The company's Dual View series gains a new member in the 16.2-megapixel DV150F — which includes a 2.7-inch LCD on the camera's face to assist with portrait shots. The ST150F is the most barebones shooter of the batch, though like the other models, it offers built-in Wi-Fi sharing. Aside from that, you'll find a 25-millimeter F2.5 lens and 5x optical zoom.

Like the upcoming NX300, each camera announced today has been designed for use with Samsung's new Smart Camera app, available now and arriving soon for iOS users. With the app your smartphone can pull double duty as a mobile viewfinder, and it also includes the usual gamut of image editing and backup tools. The future may rest with interchangeable lens cameras, but the point-and-shoot camera lives on at this year's CES.
