Samsung S85 Camera

Following its additions of new L-series cameras to its line, Samsung has also added a single camera to its S-series for those who favor image quality. The S85 uses the same 8.2-megapixel sensor of the L830 but includes an SHD lens with 5X optical zoom for closer shots without sacrificing detail. Like the higher-end cameras of this week's launches, the camera will include Samsung's unique software shake correction and face detection.

Movie mode is relatively limited to an NTSC-sized 640x480 but records in Motion JPEG and runs on AA batteries so that it can be refreshed whenever a spare pack of batteries or an electronics store is nearby. It ships in August for at least the UK at a price of 119 ($242) and should be available in the US and elsewhere near the same timeframe.
