Samsung has today introduced its new Samsung ST80 Compact Digital Camera, that is a 14.2 megapixel point and-shoot camera that joins Samsung’s growing line of Wi-Fi enabled digital cameras.
With wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi and Samsung’s AllShare (DNLA) connectivity, the Samsung ST80 digital camera makes it easy to share images on the move and keep friends and family updated from anywhere at any time.
The Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled Digital Camera features a slim and rounded design, which houses a 3x optical zoom as well as a large, 3.0-inch wide WQVGA 230K colors capable full touch screen on the back of the camera.
Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled Digital Camera comes equipped with Samsung’s new ‘Smart Crop’ feature, a unique editing tool which takes place directly on the camera. With ‘Smart Crop,’ users can crop images taken at any angle or slant, such as banners or signs, and then straighten them as if they were originally taken straight on.
The Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled Digital Camera also makes it easy to capture great images with Samsung’s Smart Auto (Still & Movie) scene recognition technology while Smart Auto (Still & Movie) automatically recognizes the user’s current shooting environment and selects the appropriate settings to achieve the best results possible.
Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled Digital Camera offers impressive 14.2 mega-pixel resolution in still images, and offers 720p HD video recording. At 30 frames-per-second, the ST80 allows consumers to record high quality, 720p HD video utilizing the H.264 format, which provides up to three times more recording capacity than the MJPEG video format.
“We want to let people share their favorite pictures quickly while they’re on the move, and the ST80 does just that,” said Sangjin Park, President of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. “Connectivity is everywhere, and at Samsung we are committed to bringing these wireless capabilities to the digital imaging world by developing innovative cameras that satisfy the distinct needs of our consumers.”
The Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled digital camera’s wireless connectivity makes it easy for users to upload or share digital images or videos with others directly from the camera without the need to be connected to a computer.
Using an available Wi-Fi internet connection, consumers have the option to email their digital images and video to individual email addresses or to those stored in the camera’s address book.
In addition, Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled digital camera also allows consumers to effortlessly upload images and videos directly to social networking sites such as Facebook, Picasa, YouTube, Photo Bucket or even Samsung’s own Web site (www.samsungimaging.com).
The Samsung ST80 Wi-Fi enabled digital camera’s wireless connectivity is further enhanced by Samsung’s AllShare technology allowing users effortlessly sync the ST80 to popular DLNA-compliant (Digital Living Network Alliance) electronics found throughout the home, such as HDTVs and digital photo frames, and wirelessly connect and share content between each device.
