Friday, March 27, 2009: Samsung India has launched its new range of digital still cameras for the
Indian market. The new line up comprises of 8 models including the Samsung WB500, PL60, PL50,
PL65, ST50, ES10, ES15, and ES55. The 10.2 mega-pixel WB500 offers a ultra-wide 24mm
Schneider lens with 10x optical zoom that allows shooters to be more creative and flexible when
taking digital images, said the company.
The WB500 offers a host of manual controls, including the ability to adjust shutter speed, aperture,
exposure, and focus. The camera also incorporates both Optical and Digital Image Stabilization to
help reduce image blur. The WB500 gives shooters the ability to capture video in 720p high-definition
at 30 frames-per-second (fps), and the H.264 compression allows users to record video for longer
periods of time. Additionally, shooters can utilise Optical Image Stabilization and the camera's 10x
optical zoom while recording video, as well as Samsung's Successive Recording mode allows the
user to pause and then resume filming without having to save the clips as individual files.
The WB500's Face Detection technology detects faces and automatically adjusts focus and exposure
to ensure better composition and image quality. Smile Shot automatically triggers the WB500 to take a
photo only when the camera detects smiles on the subjects' faces, and Blink Detection automatically
fire three consecutive shots if the camera detects that a subject's eyes are closed. Another automatic
functionality of the WB500 is Beauty Shot, which will automatically brighten and even out skin tones
as well as remove blemishes. Samsung WB500 is priced at Rs 19,990.
