Samsung Promises Multimedia Camera

Samsung SDC-MS61

Samsung says it will soon launch the SDC-MS61, a multi-function camera capable of taking 6-megapixel photos and shooting movies. It’s also a voice recorder and an mp3 player. And it can be used as a webcam too.

As a camcorder, Samsung says the SCD-MS61 can record movies in high quality MPEG-4 format at 640×480 resolution and 30 fps, the best available quality in the digital still camera category.

Users can also download their mp3 collection of CD tracks and use the camera as mp3 player. With the built-in voice recorder newsmen can record their interviews, students can record their lectures and employees their job assignments.

By plugging in the SDC-MS61 to a computer linked to the internet, live webcam images can be sent in real time, allowing for video chat.

But it’s still as a compact digital camera that the SDC-MS61 really shines. Aside from the 6-megapixel image sensor, the camera also features light sensitivity settings of up to ISO 1600, and sports a 3-inch LCD screen with a widescreen 16:9 format.

The camera itself is in a slim and stylish form.
