Samsung Unveils Two New Powerful DigicamsLate last night Samsung introduced two new exciting digital cameras, the NX11 and WB700. We'll start with the WB700, which is a sleek and stylish camera that packs a punch with an 18x optical zoom stuffed inside it's petite frame. On top of that, Samsung loaded the camera with some great specs, including 16-megapixels of resolution, Dual IS system (Optical + Digital), Smart Auto, Full Manual mode, a separate movie record button, and much more. This one will be available in both black and silver with a MSRP of $299 US. Look for the WB700 in April, 2011.
Next we have a powerful EVIL camera, which is Samsung's third model of this kind. The new NX11 replaces the popular NX10 we reviewed earlier in the year, with a very similar feature set. While the camera still offers a 14.6-megapixel APS-C imager, 3.0-inch AMOLED display, and MP4 720p HD video capture, Samsung has redesigned the hand grip for a more comfortable feel in your hand, along with added compatibility with their newer i-Function lens system. The NX11 camera kit comes with the same 18-55mm i-Function lens found with the NX100, and Samsung also introduced two new i-Function lenses alongside the NX11 announcement; a 20mm pancake and 20-50mm zoom. The NX11 is scheduled to hit dealers shelves sometime in February (2011), with a suggested retail price of $649 US.
