No word yet on when it’ll be coming to the Philippines, but Samsung just released a new camera in the UK and Germany that will soon be available in other European countries as well. The Samsung WB100 packs a 22.3 to 579.9 mm equivalent lens with 26x optical zoom. The camera has a pop-up flash and aside from the fact that its lens isn’t interchangeable, its overall design closely resembles that of DSLRs, including the right-side hand grip.
It features a 16-megapixel sensor and is capable of 3D photography, live panorama, 720p video recording, and has an ISO range of 80-1600. It’s also equipped with Dual Image Stabilization to help with shaky shots. It can be powered by either AA batteries or lithium-ion rechargeable ones, adding to its general versatility as a travel companion. As a whole, the camera combines high image performance and creative functionality in a compact design.
The camera is available in black or red and retails for about US $277 (approximately Php 11,700).
