Editor’s pick their compact camera of the year:
June 17. 2009 – We are proud to announce that the world’s leading magazine for
digital imaging “American Photo Magazine” has rewarded the Samsung
HZ15W(WB550), with the “Compact Camera of the Year”-award, on its “American
Photo – Special Issue – July/August 2009”-issue.
Popular Photography Magazine, who is also widely known for their top-notch internet
community “POPPHOTO.COM”, tested no less than 150 new products in this
special-issue, and ranked the Samsung HZ15W(WB550) on the very top of the crop
of digital imaging devices.
To be precious, the article describes the Samsung HZ15W(WB550), as follows:
“Samsung brings a rare view to the superzoom compact – and we mean that literally.
The starting focal length on this 10X, 12-megapixel model is equivalent, in the 25mm
format, to 24mm. That’s wider than the 28mm on other wide-angle models, and
better for both big views and cramped interiors. And it seems to suit the
HZ15W(WB550)’s HD video, which is, after all, a wide-screen format. You can output
video directly to an HDTV by plugging in an HDMI cable. Another rare feature for a
compact: manual control of both f-stop and shutter speed. About $330.”
