Samsung Announces WB700 Compact with 18X Zoom

Well, it’s even 24X zoom if you count Samsung WB700′s 1.3X Smart Zoom, and the math according to Samsung is 18X plus 1.3X equals 24X. Whatever.

The new WB700 features an ultra-wide Schneider KREUZNACH lens with OIS (optical image stabilization) that zooms from 24-576mm. It also offers Raw format shooting, 720p HD video and a host of Smart Filters that include soft focus, half-tone dot, cinema, fisheye, miniature and sketch.

The WB700 is slated for shipment in April 2011 and will have a retail price of $300.
