SamsungThe Samsung Digimax A6 and A5 digital cameras come equipped with a wide range of the most technologically advanced and cutting-edge features available on the market at an affordable price. The Digimax A6 has a 6 Megapixel CCD sensor and the Digimax A5 has a 5 Megapixel CCD sensor. In combining these sensors with a Samsung High-Definition (SHD) lens, these cameras deliver fantastic image quality. Users are presented with 10 different Scene modes (Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-up, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow and Text) from which to choose to create the perfect shot. For the more creative user there is also the choice of aperture priority, shutter priority and fully manual shooting modes.
The 4cm Macro setting allows for extreme close-up photography for those wishing to explore the artistic properties of surfaces, textures and other subject matter.

These 'A' range Digimax cameras also feature an innovative Power Movie Clip function that allows users to shoot high quality VGA movie clips. Power Movie Clip provides flexibility and creative control in allowing the user to shoot at either 30 or 15 frames per second of VGA quality video. In addition, the cameras enable users to shoot and store movie clips in different sizes up to 640x480. Finally, the Power Movie Clip offers the ability to pause, fast forward and/or rewind the video right on the cameras.

In keeping with the theme of flexibility and control, Samsung has provided users with a myriad of options for capturing, storing and sharing images with the Digimax A6 and A5. The 32MB(16MB on the A5) of internal memory facilitates ample storage right on the cameras themselves, while the SD/MMC slot allows for an additional 512MB of capacity. Users can choose from six different image sizes, ranging from 640x480 to 2816x2112, as well as three different resolution settings - Superfine, Fine and Normal. This results in 18 different image size / resolution combinations, enabling the user to select the perfect setting for virtually any situation. Once the images are captured and stored, PictBridge technology allows foreasy output directly to a printer via a USB connection. Of course, the A6 and A5 come with comprehensive software suites including ArcSoft Photo Impression, Digimax Viewer and Digimax Reader to enable storage, editing and output via a PC.

Samsung clearly had the user in mind when designing the new A6 and A5, as the cameras come equipped with a wide range of features that make them a snap to use. It all begins with the highly-intuitive user interface, which facilitates easy access to the vast array of advanced functions and capabilities contained within the cameras. The large, bright 1.8-inch LCD displays make it easy to view the subject during capture and playback, while an innovative new feature allows users to switch from playback to capture mode with just a single touch of the shutter button. The cameras also include a onetouch manual function button that allows more advanced users to quickly and easily switch between manual, aperture priority and shutter priority modes.

The A6 and A5's image editing capabilities enable cropping, rotating and colour revisions right on the camera. With black & white, sepia and RGB colour effects to choose from, the creative possibilities are endless. In addition, the bright, multifunction pilot lamp on the front of the camera bodies communicate camera status to the user and the subject by displaying a different colour to denote the specific function being performed (taking a picture, self timer, image upload, voice recording, etc).

Another user-friendly feature of the Digimax A6 and A5 is their compatibility with three different power sources. Bearing in mind that you can't shoot pictures if you don't have power, Samsung designed these cameras to support three different power sources, including two rechargeable formats (Li-ion and Ni-MH) as well as standard AAs. The Samsung Li-ion battery, I-Pack, provides enough power for roughly 290 shots, while the Samsung Ni-MH enables users to capture up to 350 images. If that is not enough, users can simply run to the local convenience store to pick up some AA batteries for additional backup.
