Samsung Digimax V5 announcement clippings


Like the previously launched V4 and V3 cameras, the 5 mega pixel V5 combines world-renowned Schneider optics with advanced manual shooting capabilities to create a Super Macro function that allows users to capture brilliant images from as close as 5 cm. Once you've captured the image you want, Samsung's trimming and resizing functions allow you to edit the image right on the LCD - without even connecting to a PC.

The V5 allows users to add 10 second audio captions to still images, record audio to accompany their movie clips and record up to 2 hours of audio alone, depending on the capacity of the memory card in use. And storage is not a problem as the V5 comes with a 32 MB SD memory card.

The convenient shooting mode dial allows users to easily choose from multiple shooting modes including easy, program, portrait, night scene, movie clip, voice recording and A/S/M (aperture, shutter, and manual). An easy to use 4-way key and OK button allows users to navigate the options menu and provides quick and easy access to a variety of features including flash, self-timer and metering. The brightness level of a vibrant, colour TFT LCD monitor is adjustable to ensure easy viewing and reviewing of images in any lighting conditions.

The "My Set" function allows users to personalize their cameras by choosing up to 9 different camera settings such as image size, quality and ISO and saving them in a customized profile. This provides the ability to be ready to shoot the images you want in any conditions at the touch of a button.

The start up image on the LCD can be customized on the V Series cameras, allowing the user to choose their favorite photo as a personal start page. The cameras' "Quick Play" feature allows users to immediately review single images, thumbnails, slide shows and movie clips at the touch of a button - even when the power is off. Power is never a problem as the V5 supports no less than 9 different power sources.

The V5 features single, continuous and auto bracketing shooting modes and supports multiple file formats, including TIFF, JPEG and DPOF for still images, as well as AVI (MJPEG) for movie clips and WAV for audio files.

The V5 comes with valuable bundled software makes viewing, editing and sharing images easy, as well as a full compliment of accessories, including a stylish carrying case, USB cable, user selectable NTSC/PAL video cable, and applications and software driver CD-ROM and a wrist strap.
