Samsung Rolls Out 4 New Compact Cameras

Samsung TL34HD and TL9 Digital Cameras

Samsung today unveiled its 2008 second-half digital camera line up with the launch of four new models – the TL34HD, TL9, SL310W and SL201.

The TL34HD is a 14.7-megapixel compact with a 3.6x zoom and 3-inch LCD. The HD in its name means it can shoot 720p high definition movies at 30fps. Out in September, $330 the price.

The TL9 is even more compact, with 10 megapixels, 5x zoom, 2.7” LCD and SVGA movie recording. That viewfinder-looking thing there is the lens; there is no viewfinder, you use the LCD. $280, also in September.

The SL310W ($230) features 13.6 megapixels, dual image stabilization, 2.7 inch LCD, and a 3.6x, 28mm wide-angle optical zoom lens, while the SL201 ($170) gets a 10.2-megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom and the same 2.7-inch LCD monitor.
