Samsung America has bared two new compacts, the SL720 and SL502, to expand its SL series of easy-to-use digital cameras. Both new models offer 12.2 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom. The SL720 features a 3.0 inch LCD and the SL502 features a 2.7 inch LCD. The SL720 has a 28mm wide-angle lens, while the SL502 has a standard 35mm lens.
â€œThese are two of the most full-featured compact digital cameras on the market,â€ said Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of audio/video and digital imaging marketing, Samsung Electronics America. â€œTypically, consumers may feel like they have to sacrifice functionality in order to find a digital camera priced within their means, but thatâ€™s not the case with the new SL720 and SL502. Samsung is giving consumers the ability to experience the latest and most advanced digital imaging technology, helping them step up to a more robust, feature-packed camera which will help take their photography to a whole new level.â€
The SL720 will retail for $230 while the SL502 will have a price tag of $150 when both hit store shelves in August 2009.
