samsung_l74.jpg Let’s have a look - 28 mm wide angle lens, seven megapixel CCD, 450 MB of internal memory, MPEG-4 SVGA video recording and a 3.0″ Touch Screen LCD. A lot for that small baby. It is equipped with a 3.6x optical zoom, Tour Guide function, Face Recognition AF & AE, which detects the subject’s face, automatically adjusts auto focus and auto exposure too. The touch screen LCD perfected with Samsung’s original Flash GUI (Graphic User Interface), allows the user to navigate through the functions quite easily. Its possible to capture the best possible images even in dimly lit conditions thanks to the ASR image stabilization system. It can capture moving images in MPEG-4 SVGA quality and once taken the camera allows for pictures to be edited rather than waiting till you sat at on the computer to do it.

The Samsung L74 Wide is priced at $ 350 and should be on sale this spring.

The tie set comes with a small cigarette box-sized recorder with a 2.4-inch LCD screen for viewing purposes. You can have it begin recording video by manually turning it on, or automatically at a scheduled time or via its motion sensor. It’s a pity that its battery life is merely 60 minutes, not enough for filling anything larger than a 1GB card in one charge.
