Samsung intros cameras

Among other product debuts at CES, Samsung has unveiled four new digital point-and-shoot digital cameras, including the 10.2-megapixel HZ10W which can capture 720p HD video at 30fps and in H.264 compression. The camera has a 24mm Schneider lens with a 10x optical zoom along with both optical and digital image stabilization and gives users full control over its settings, including shutter speed, aperture opening, exposure and focus. The HZ10W's Successive Recording mode lets users pause video recordings without breaking them up into separate clips.

The TL100 is just 0.65 inches (16.6mm) thick with the lens fully retracted and can take 12.2-megapixel images. A new Samsung feature, Smart Auto, automatically selects the scene mode depending on what kind of environment users are shooting, being able to recognize landscape mountain ranges or portraits of individuals. Otherwise, the thin camera sports a 2.7-inch LCD, has a 3x optical zoom and can capture MPEG-4 video in SVGA resolution at 20fps.

The other new releases include two new shooters in the SL series, the SL102 and SL420. Either captures 10.2-megapixel images, with the SL102 featuring 3x optical zoom, digital image stabilization technology and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. The SL420 adds a 5x optical zoom, both optical and digital image stabilization, and the ability to record MPEG-4 video in SVGA resolutions instead of the SL102's Motion JPEG VGA videos.

The Samsung HZ10W will be available later this month at $300, with the remaining models launching in the spring with prices yet unannounced.
