L-series to cater to high-end digital camera market.
Samsung has launched three new digital camera series including the NV series, I series and L series - between them, representing the full range from multimedia to premium models.
"Samsung Camera's award-winning NV Digital Camera range has set the benchmark for quality and innovation," said Ashraf Sajid, general manager of the audio-visual division at Samsung Gulf Electronics.
"We are thrilled to take the range even further with the launch of the NV24 and its innovative HD capabilities. Photographers of all levels will now be able to create high-quality video recordings at the touch of a button," he added.
The Samsung NV 24HD features a 10.2 mega pixel resolution, 24mm ultra-wide angle and 3.6x optical zoon lens. It also is equipped with Samsung's Dream Engine, a proprietary rapid image correction feature designed to produce high quality images. As well as a range of other features such as Digital Image Stabilisation and Auto Contrast Balance, the NV 24HD has an in-built Smile and Blink Detection.
The Samsung i8, meanwhile, is a multimedia camera that supports various functions including watching films through the portable media player, MP3 music playback, travel information and a text viewer. Available in four different colours, the I-series cameras range in resolution from 8.0 mega pixels to 10.2 mega pixels.
Finally, Samsung unveiled three dual image stabilisation-equipped cameras - the L210, L110 and the L100. All boast a 2.5-inch Intelligent TFT LCD with a resolution of 230,000 pixels and have a face detection and Function Description feature.
"The I series and L-series models minimise the effects of shaking hands despite being ultra-slim digital cameras. These products create optimal pictures." said Mr. Sajid. "With the release of the L-series models, Samsung is looking to enhance its place at the top of the domestic digital camera market." Sajid said.
