Samsung Launches WB1000 Compact Camera

Samsung has unveiled its 12-megapixel WB1000 compact camera in Europe. It features a 24mm ultra wide angle lens with 5x optical zoom and a 3.0-inch AMOLED screen.

Samsung touts its AMOLED technology – widely used in Samsung high-definition TVs – to deliver an enhanced overall digital imaging experience for the end user. It consumes less power, says Samsung, and offers a higher contrast ratio of 10,000:1, producing darker black levels, more vibrant colors, and a brighter display which can easily be viewed outdoors, even in direct sunlight.

Samsung said their new WB1000 camera also offers advanced high-definition video recording at a resolution of 720p, as well as HDMI connectivity through the use of a cradle to view video and photos in HD clarity on an HDTV.
