Samsung  releases a 5 megapixel digital camera - the Digimax A502


Samsung Camera has announced that it will release a 5 mega-pixel high-resolution digital camera with 5x digital zoom (model name: DIGIMAX A502).

The Digimax A502 is a 5 mega-pixel high-resolution digital camera with 5x digital zoom (7x zoom during playback). Its compact, lightweight design makes it easy to carry around as well (dimensions: 96.5 (L) x 52.5 (H) x 29.7 (W). Weight: approximately 105 grams).

With enhanced video recording capability, (on which more and more emphasis is being placed), the Digimax A502 supports video recording in VGA resolution at 24/15 frames per second (fps). You can record a movie at VGA resolution and then play it on your TV without any loss of video quality. You can also play it on your PC screen at twice the size of conventional movies.

With four different scene modes - Night Scene, Portrait, Landscape and Fireworks you can produce clearer pictures by choosing the appropriate mode for each individual situation.

In addition, the Digimax A502 provides various functions such as voice recording for movie narration, general voice recording and voice memo for adding voice to a regular photo. With a 1.8" colour TFT LCD monitor and an easy to use menu system, the Digimax A502 is a user-friendly digital camera that can be used by anyone without difficulty.

The Digimax A502 also provides a built-in image editing function, allowing you to edit a variety of images without a PC. You can use the Trimming function to cut an unwanted portion of an image, saving only the part you want. When you are short of memory, you can use the Resizing function to recover memory space by resizing and saving images in a smaller size. You can use the Rotating function to rotate an image in a desired direction and save it.

With PictBridge, a direct printing system that links to a printer in real time via a USB cable, you really can go from picture to print without a PC.

For more creative photography, a White Balance function allows you to select from various light settings including Automatic, Sunlight, Cloudy, Sunset, Fluorescent_H, Fluorescent_L, Incandescent and User-defined. In addition, nine different types of photo frame are provided for more photo fun.

The Digimax A502 is equipped with a built-in memory (16 MB), allowing you to save pictures without a memory card. It also has an SD/MMC card slot to add even more memory capacity. With the Copy to Card function, you can seamlessly transfer images saved in the internal memory to an external memory. The A502 also provides various useful functions such as voice recording for up to 1 hour, voice memo for adding a short voice message to a picture and "One-touch Playback" for instant playback of a picture even when the power is off.
