Samsung CES cameras

Samsung may not be known for its digital cameras in North America, but three new ones should be available in the spring, AVING reports. First up is the six-megapixel S630 (pictured), which has Samsung's ASR image stabilization technology to reduce photo blur. ASR is also applied to the camera's movie recording, which can be captured in either 320x240 or 640x480 at 30fps. Ten-second voice memos can be attached to stills. The next step up is the seven-megapixel L73, which also has improved exposure performance, with ISO sensitivity up to 1600 and shutter speeds as fast as 1/2000. Zoom is 3x optical. The S850 ups the zoom to 5x optical, but should otherwise be functionally similar to the L73, the main change being eight megapixels. It should be priced at $250. The S630 will cost $180; curiously, the L73 will be $300, though this may be due to its compactness.
