Samsung today launched the new WB700, a 16 megapixel ultra-slim camera with 24X zoom and Schneider Kreuznach lens. The camera will ship in April and sell for $299.99. Here is more info on this new Samsung point and shoot digital camera:
The camera features a 24mm ultra-wide Schneider KREUZNACH lens to capture the perfect wide shot, as well as an outstanding 24X zoom function, made up of an 18X optical zoom and 1.3X Smart Zoom. The WB700 delivers sharp images with incredible detail, thanks to the camera?s 16 Megapixel (MP) CCD sensor. The WB700 is also equipped with full manual control and the ability to record 720p high definition video (H.264 format). The flexibility of the WB700?s lens and zoom functions allows users to capture a broad landscape in the same 16MP detail as a bubbling brook in the distance.
High quality and fun shooting The successor to the successful WB600 and WB650 models, the WB700 includes Samsung?s latest advances in HD video technology so users can capture high quality video footage, as well as still images. The WB700 also features Smart Filter 2.0 - artistic filters in modes such as ?soft focus?, ?half-tone dot? and ?cinema? alongside traditional features such as ?fish-eye?, ?miniature? and ?sketch?, giving entertaining and professional finishes at the touch of a button.
Zoom Noise Reduction Samsung has also introduced new innovation to remove zoom noise from video content. The WB700 uses an advanced noise reduction algorithm that actively cancels out the zoom noise, as the optical zoom slides backwards and forwards, giving you uninterrupted clear sound to complement your detailed High Definition movies.
