Samsung Electronics, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, announced today the launch of the WB700 and WB210– two ultra-zoom, wide angle cameras that boast intuitive features to make it easier to take great pictures on the go. The Samsung WB700 and WB210 cameras have been designed to deliver clear and detailed pictures, controlled through an intuitive new Smart Access user interface, all packed into a sleek and super-portable camera.

The Samsung WB700 features a 24mm ultra-wide Schneider KREUZNACH lens to capture the perfect wide shot, as well as an outstanding 18X optical zoom and 1.3X Smart Zoom. The WB700 delivers sharp images with incredible detail in close up thanks to the camera’s 16 Megapixel (MP) CCD sensor. The flexibility of the WB700’s lens and zoom functions means that you can capture a broad landscape in the same 16MP detail as a bubbling brook in the distance.

The new WB210 boasts a long 12x optical super zoom lens set in a slim-line 22.4mm body, to make capturing distant subjects in perfect detail easier than ever. The new camera also includes the option of a 21mm wide angle setting, through its super wide shot mode, to get deeper shots at close range – perfect for capturing landscape scenes or big groups of friends when on the move. The WB210 also includes 14 Mega Pixel photo quality, for crystal clear pictures, and a large 3.5” touch screen with Samsung’s new Smart Access UI system to deliver unprecedented usability. The camera also delivers HD quality movie recording, as well as face detection to ensure you never miss your family and friends from your pictures.

“The new ultra-zoom range offers perfect high-performance all-rounder compact digital cameras that allow users to capture great quality images, with ease, and in any situation,” said Mr. BJ Kim, Director of the Audio Visual Sales Group, Samsung Gulf Electronics. “The WB700 and WB210 combine to provide a range of comprehensive point and shoot solutions with the option to extend into a range of Smart Features to challenge and inspire creativity for its users. These cameras offer some of the most powerful zoom capabilities available today, but within a slim design that can easily slip into any pocket or bag.”
