Additionally, users can capture Full HD Video at 30 frames per second, ensuring that video clips accurately convey the dynamic action of any scene.
For users more accustomed to pre-set SMART Modes, the WB350F incorporates a number of settings for capturing the best possible photo in a variety of settings. Users can capture their “good side” with Beauty Face, which gently evens skin tones and minor blemishes, or take in an entire vista with the pre-configured Panorama setting, which allows users to sweep their camera from side to side to capture a landscape. Additional capabilities like Dual Capture and Baby Monitor enable users to utilize the camera in several different ways to meet their needs.
SMART Camera 3.0 Connectivity

Once paired, users can then access a host of clever features designed to improve both usability and functionality. Photo Beam sends photos being viewed on the camera straight to smartphones, while AutoShare saves images straight to smartphone in real time, removing the burden of manually backing up pictures. With Remote Viewfinder photographers can use their smartphone to control the WB2200F, a great solution for setting up group or individual shots, while Mobile Link allows the transfer of selected images to smartphones to help organize the viewing experience.
