The prosumer / bridge camera
market has been eerily quiet since the advent of the interchangeable lens camera, but those still looking for a simple, all-in-one shooter have found a new one in the Samsung WB110. It's the latest addition to Samsung
's line of long-zoom cameras
, with a whopping 26x zoom and a 22.3mm wide-angle lens. Inside, there's a 20.2MP sensor, and an hVGA LCD display on the rear.
Smart Auto, in still image modes, analyzes key elements in photographers' compositions, automatically adjusting photo and movie settings to help users capture the best shot possible. Live Panorama lets you photograph seemingly endlessly panoramic shots and preview them live on the screen by holding the shutter-button and sweeping across the scene.
There's a 720p movie mode as well, a maximum ISO range of 3200, HDMI video output, an SDXC card slot, and room for four AA batteries. There's no mention of a price just yet, but it should hit shelves shortly.
