Samsung is preparing for the next success story: the digital camera market






Samsung is preparing for the next success story: the digital camera market - digital camera and photography newsSamsung has been very successful in the worldwide mobile phone markets and seems to get ready now to repeat the success story in the digital camera market. A number of new digital cameras have  been released on the Korean and other Asian markets, most recently at the Samsung digital convergence convention in Hong Kong, where Samsung exhibited the strength of its rapidly growing digital consumer products, showing 80 digital products, 20 of which were new models first seen in Hong Kong.

With the launch of a number of new digital cameras in the DIGIMAX series at the end of April, Samsung introduced the U-CA3, a digital camera  with several innovative features, such as a 3D Avatar picture function,  MPEG4 support and 7-colour “Rainbow Eye” function. (for more information see the press release).

In addition to the DIGIMAX series, Samsung offers the KENOX series for the Asian Markets. Although the series is not available in Europe and the USA, some identical models are available in the DIGIMAX series. In this Kenox series we'll find another innovative camera, the Kenox alpha 5.

This 5 megapixel Kenox Alpha 5 camera features 3x optical zoom and a 2 inch 118.000 pixel LCD, which can be tilted and twisted, a feature not often seen with such compact (106 x 57 x 38 mm) cameras. Furthermore, the camera features a mount for extra lenses and an optical 7x zoom lens offers additional wide (28 mm) and tele (200mm) shooting possibilities.
