Samsung’s triple whammy - A trio of new cameras were unveiled today when Samsung rolled out their 2007 product line for the press.
Also in the S-range was the S1030, boasting a massive 10Mp resolution and a 3x optical zoom, with specification otherwise similar to the S830, it’s due in March.
In the style range, Samsung revealed the L77 which headlines with a 7.1Mp resolution and a 7x optical zoom. The zoom is completely internal which makes the camera, at just 21mm thick, the thinnest camera to have such a lengthy zoom. The L77 also offers up to ISO1600, Shake Reduction System, a 2.5” LCD, a spangly aluminium body, and MPEG4 capability so it will play movies and music.
This one is due in April and the price is still to be decided.
On the SLR front, Samsung announced that seven lenses from fish-eye to telephoto were to be introduced for the GX-10, DSLR system. It was to also benefit from the release of a new flashgun with a guide number of 54, retailing at £299. While on the subject of SLRs, a Samsung representative also, exclusively, told EPZ that while the GX-10 had been developed in conjunction with Pentax, Samsung would be releasing a new digital SLR later in the year, that was solely designed by Samsung engineers.
Expect further details as and when we get them.
