Samsung L70 : Last May we already informed you about some new Samsung products, among them the Samsung Digimax L70, that were showcased at the Korean Photo & Imaging 2006 event in Korea. Today Samsung UK officially announced the Samsung L70 digital compact camera. Samsung Techwin has received great publicity in the digital camera market this last month, with the launch of the premium-class digital camera brand 'NV' in July, and it has now announced that it is going to launch the stylish premium digital camera, the Samsung Digimax L70, in August. Despite its slim size of less than 10cm width & 17.5mm thickness, the Samsung Digimax L70 digital camera enables more stable shooting, thanks to its hand grip and grip ring.|

Samsung L70 camera - LCD monitor and Zoom lens
To meet consumer needs for a bigger, clearer display, a 2.5-inch LCD was adopted for better appreciation of clear picture quality. The brightness of the LCD is automatically adjusted according to the intensity of the environmental illumination, which helps to prolong battery life. In the Samsung Digimax L70, which has an extendable lens barrel, the lens is brighter and the picture quality is better than that of refractive types. The extendable lens barrel type is also excellent for capturing instant images, since the lens speed is faster.
During 27 years of experience in the camera industry, Samsung has deployed a wide range of digital camera product lines, from a 2 Megapixel model in 2001 to a slim style model and a 8 Megapixel 15x zoom model in 2005, by utilizing its superior information technology in high precision lens/optics. In the coming years, Samsung will concentrate on technology convergence and development of the best-designed products that meet customer requirements, based on its core technology and competency in design, development and manufacturing. In addition, Samsung will establish global networks for sales and services to provide a faster response to customers' needs. All of these efforts should boost the Company to the position of the worlds best digital camera company.
