New Samsung cameras announced
The appeal of Samsung cameras lies primarily in their value. The highest-spec'd of the cameras announced is the S1050, which comes with a 10.1 megapixels sensor and 5x stabilised optical zoom. The camera also boasts shutter speeds down to 1/2000 sec and ISO equivalent of 1600. Combined with the image stabilisation, this provides a solid basis to capture great images in difficult conditions, for example when there's low light. The camera is fitted with a 7.6cm (3-inch) LCD screen, uses AA batteries, and will sell for around the mid-$400 mark (TBC). The S850 has similar features, but offers 8.1 megapixel resolution and a 6.2cm (2.5-inch) LCD screen.
The budget-level S730 and S630 digital cameras offer 7- and 6- megapixel resolutions respectively. Both come with Samsung's proprietary image stabilisation technology and a 6.2cm (2.5-inch) LCD screen. Price-wise, these cameras are likely to straddle the $200-mark (TBC).
All cameras will be available in April 2007, and will be available to pre-order in the next day or two.
