Samsung HZ25W / WB5000 announcement clippings

The Samsung HZ25W / WB5000 is a 12.5 mega-pixel point-and-shoot outfitted with the most powerful lens ever offered on a Samsung compact digital camera. Joining the company's advanced HZ / WB Series, the camera's high-performance Schneider-KREUZNACH lens offers an impressive 24x optical zoom with a 26mm wide-angle focal length (35mm film equivalent focal range of 26mm-624mm), which can be used for shooting high-quality digital still images as well as recording 720p HD video in H.264 format.
Great shots have to be caught in a split second. With a whole new approach to full manual mode, the Wheel Dial of the HZ25 / WB5000 lets you set the aperture and shutter speed as quick as the world moves. Just the turn of a finger and you can finely tune the white balance and color temperature within the range of 3,000K to 10,000K for truer, richer colors and artistic photos. Flip from Auto Focus to Manual Focus or selection AF. Also just spin the dial to go right to the photos you want to show off. This dial isn't just smart, it's brilliant.
