Samsung today announced the ST80, a 14.2-megapixel Wi-Fi enabled compact digital camera. The ST80 touts a slim and rounded design, which houses a 3x optical zoom as well as a large 3-inch wide touchâ€‘screen on the back of the camera.
The ST80 utilizes Samsung’s new â€˜Smart Crop’ feature to resize and enhance a picture in-camera. With â€˜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. Another feature is the Smart Auto (Still & Movie) scene recognition technology which automatically recognizes the user’s current shooting environment and selects the appropriate settings to achieve the best results possible.
â€œWe want to let people share their favorite pictures quickly while they’re on the move, and the ST80 does just that,â€ said Sangjin Park, President of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. â€œConnectivity 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.â€
