Click to take a 360-degree QTVR tour of the i85
The i85 is a slim, high-resolution digital camera featuring 8.2-megapixels, a 5x optical zoom, and a 3.0
inch LCD display. This is the third model in Samsung's digital camera arsenal to feature PMP
functionality, which enables users the ability to enjoy movies, music videos, television shows and even
their favorite music while on-the-go. In addition to PMP, the i85 also features Samsung's innovative World
Tour Guide function, which provides travel information covering 4,500 regions in 30 countries- helping
users to plan trips and find their way while on the road.
Sticking to their commitment to develop electronic products that make bold fashion statements, Samsung has
created this digital camera with the distinctive CMF (Color Material Finish) stainless finish and offers
it in a wide selection of colors: red, black, gold and silver.
When setting the camera to PMP mode, i85 users can easily listen to their favorite MP3 files or watch
their favorite video content on the camera's large, 3.0" high-resolution display. The bundled Digimax
Converter software seamlessly converts the user's MPEG, AVI, MOV, WMV and ASF files for viewing on the
i85. For music on-the-go, the software can also convert MP3 and WAV audio files in several simple steps.
The innovative software also allows users to view subtitles, adjust the screen size and crop and stretch
the image to fit the screen as desired. The i85 also doesn't hold back when it comes to sound either. To
listen to videos or music, the i85 features a 2.5mm headphone port as well as stereo speakers boasting SRS
3D acoustic technology.
The ultra-thin i85 also features Samsung's i-movie mode, which offers users high-resolution SVGA (800x592)
MPEG-4 video and advanced editing controls. By using the camera's Successive Recording mode, users can
pause, and then resume filming of video clips without having to save the clips as individual files.
Additionally, users can operate the camera's optical zoom while filming and can engage a movie stabilizer
to compensate for unwanted camera movement and subject blur.
In low-light situations, shooters can rest assured that their images will come out sharp and clear as the
i85 is equipped with Samsung's ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction) image stabilization system and an ISO
equivalent of 1600. When engaged, ASR helps to minimize the effects of hand shake and ensures that the
best shots are captured even in dimly lit conditions.
Shooters can also take advantage of the camera's Face Detection mode, which makes taking pictures of
family and friends a snap. Samsung's Face Detection technology detects up to nine faces and automatically
adjusts focus and exposure to ensure better composition and image quality. Additionally, the i85 also
features Wise Shot, which automatically takes two consecutive pictures in rapid succession-- one with ASR
image stabilization enabled, and one with the flash -- and prompts the user to review both and keep the
preferred version of the picture.
A must for intrepid travelers, the i85 includes a nifty World Tour Guide function, which provides instant
access to travel information covering 6,500 famous attractions - in the form of images and explanations -
in 30 countries, meaning that you will always know where the action is! Further information can also be
downloaded directly from the Internet, and with 190 MB of internal memory you won't need to worry about
space for useful travel tips.
