Samsung announced five new digital cameras today, and while we have specs on all of them, we don’t have pictures. I sincerely hope that everyone can see the irony of a press release about cameras without pictures. We will be visiting Samsung’s booth on the floor, so we’ll see if we can actually show you the other Dualview cameras over the next few days.
Let’s start with the one we DO have a picture of, the DualView ST700. You might remember this camera as being the narcissists favorite camera with an LCD on the front and back. The ST700 has a 5x zoom lens, 1.8″ from LCD, shoots video at 720p, and has an ISO range that goes up to 3200. The ST700 also has a touch LCD on the back to control the various functions. The ST700 also sports a mighty 16.1 megapixel sensor. MSRP will be $279.99, expect to see this camera at your favorite retailer in March.
Next we’ll talk about the PL170, another Dualview camera. The P170 will look very similar to the ST700, with the major difference being the front screen is only 1.5″ front screen. The P170 also has a 16.1 megapixel sensor, records 720p video, and even has a 5x optical zoom lens. The back LCD is a 3″ touch screen with the same “smart” features of the ST700. MSRP is $199.99, and expect this one in March too.
The final Dualview camera is the P120. The P120 has the same lens, the same 1.5″ front LCD and 3″ back LCD, but only comes with a 14.2 Megapixel sensor. The P120 even shoots 720p video and has the same Magic Frame, Smart Face recognition, and “Beauty Shot” features as the higher end cameras. MSRP on the P120 is $149.99, and it’ll be at your retailers in March as well.
Moving away from the Dualview cameras, Samsung also announced two new “regular” cameras. The larger of the two is the WB210, a 16.4 Megapixel, 12x zoom, point and shoot camera. The WB210 also has Samsung’s built in software features like Smart Auto, Smart Face Recognition, Beauty Shot, and Portait Highlight. Expect to see the WB210 in February with an MSRP of $279.99.
The final still camera is the PL210, a 14 Megapixel, 10x optical zoom, with Optical Image Stabilization and Digital Image Stabilization. The PL210 also shoots 720p@30FPS video, and has all the same special Samsung software of it’s big brother, the WB210. The PL210 will be available next month, for an MSRP of $199.99.
