Samsung HZ35W Point-And-Shoot Boasts A 3-inch AMOLED Screen

Five new Samsung cameras have been announced, with the TL110 and TL105 being ultra-slim 14.2- and 12.2-megapixel jobs, the bog-standard SL630 offering 12.2 megapixels and 12-megapixel'd HZ35W and HZ30W. But as you know, megapixels aren't the full story.

Starting with the TL110 and TL105, both models are 0.65 inches thick and have 2.7-inch LCDs. They're capable of recording video in 720p resolution, at 30fps, using H.264 compression. New "creative effects" include Fisheye and Lomo, which I like the sound of. The TL110 has a 5x optical zoom and 27mm wide-angle lens, with the TL105 just a 4x optical zoom and 27.5mm wide-angle lens. Both models are out next month.

Going onto that decidedly middle-of-the-road SL630, it's got a 28mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom and 12.2-megapixel sensor. It records in 640 x 480 at 30fps, which certainly isn't anything to write home about when it goes on sale in March.

Lastly, the HZ35W and HZ30W have improved specs in some areas, with a 15x optical zoom. The wide-angle 24mm Schneider lenses are coupled with 12-megapixel sensors, and the HZ35W has a 3.0-inch AMOLED screen along with GPS for geo-tagging. The HZ30W on the other hand has a 3.0-inch TFT LCD, so won't offer a battery life quite as long as its bigger brother. Video recording is done at 720p and 30fps. These two go on sale in March also.

No prices yet, but if you're thinking about any of these models, you may want to read our point and click Bestmodo.
