Samsung Digimax V70 announcement clippings


The Digimax V70 has 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 38mm to 114mm in 35mm format) and a further 5x digital zoom to give 15x total zoom. In addition, the Digimax V70 uses a Schneider Kreuznach lens, recognized throughout the world as being one of the leading quality lenses available, producing crystal clear images.

The Digimax V70 provides a large built-in rotational 2.0" (117,000 pixel) TFT LCD screen. The LCD screen may be rotated up to 270 degrees enabling users to photograph themselves or to get great shots from new and different angles. Also, the screen can be rotated to adjust the LCD visibility when in bright light conditions.

The Digimax V70 uses MPEG-4, a high-compression, high-quality movie clip file format, which can record up to 3 or 4 times longer than MJPEG, the usual format for DSC movie clips. The Digimax V70 can even be used as a camcorder since it supports more than 1 hour of video and audio recording time if you are using a 256MB memory card. The movies can then be played back at TV quality as the Digimax V70 can process movies at up to 30 frames per second. The length of the clip is only restricted by the amount of memory available. The movies can then be edited using a special edition of VideoImpression software included in the box.

The Digimax V70 also has manual picture-taking functions. The camera has detailed focus control with Manual Focusing. It also enables manual control of exposure using Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and fully manual options. Exposure may be controlled by the easy to use Jog Dial in conjunction with an AE Lock function.
