Samsung got the jump on other manufacturers in announcing the NX series - a line of concept cameras that put an APS-C sensor into a compact body. Prototypes were on display at Samsung's PMA booth today, helping to clear up some confusion about where Samsung is headed with the NX concept.
PMA 2009 doesn't officially open for another day, but Samsung's already trying to steal the show with the announcement of its NX concept camera. Using an APS-C sensor and removing the mirror box for a full-time live view shooting experience (a la the Micro Four Thirds system), this interesting concept may be Samsung's ticket to a leadership role in the camera market.
In the quiet after the storm of new camera announcements last week, Samsung has introduced the TL320. Billed as the first digital camera to feature an AMOLED display with HVGA resolution, the 12.2 megapixel TL320 ultracompact also offers a 5x wide angle lens, manual exposure controls, and retro styling.
Is it a compact? Is it an ultrazoom? The Samsung HZ15W, announced this morning, is both. Boasting a 10x optical zoom lens, it will be one of the most powerful ultrazooms on the compact digital market. Sharing the previously announced HZ10W's 24-240mm Schneider zoom lens, the HZ15W offers a larger display, more resolution, and HD video capture as well.
In anticipation of PMA, Samsung has updated its SL series of point-and-shoot models to include four new offerings: the wide-angle, HD-video ready Samsung SL820, the premium Samsung SL620, and the budget-friendly Samsung SL202 and SL30.
Samsung rounded out this afternoon's new model announcements with the addition of a pair of user-friendly compacts to its budget SL line.
At a press conference this afternoon, Samsung announced that the HZ compact ultrazoom concept we saw at Photokina will be coming to market in the near term.
The Samsung TL100 brings 12.2 megapixel capture and high-res video shooting to a pocket-friendly camera that's less three quarters of an inch thick.
The U.K.'s What Digital Camera magazine provided a synopsis of an interview the publication conducted with Young-Bae Kim, a Samsung exec overseeing the company's DSLR product line. In the interview, Kim made it known that the Korean company would be bringing a new DSLR to market in conjunction with development partner Pentax in 2009.
Samsung is making a strong bid to be taken seriously in the high-performance compact segment with their announcement of the 10x zoom Samsung HZ1.
Samsung has rolled out a minor firmware update for its Pentax K20D-based DSLR, the Samsung GX-20.
Although it seems to be hard to find consumers itching for more megapixels from small cameras, it looks like we're again headed full-steam in that direction.
