On this Independence Day, Samsung has unveiled a new long zoom camera, the WB110. In addition to its super optical zoom, this digital camera also offers an ultra-wide angle lens for taking expansive images in settings that benefit from it. There’s no word yet on how much this super-zoom shooter will cost or when we’ll see it hit shelves, but we’ve got a gallery for you after the jump.
The Samsung WB110 features a 20.2-megapixel CCD sensor alongside Dual IS, which encompasses both digital and optical image stabilization. As we mentioned, the WB110 is a long zoom digital camera, offering 26x optical zoom, as well as a 22.3 millimeter ultra wide-angle lens. The device runs off 4 AA batteries, and storage support is for SDHC, SDSC, and SDXC cards.
The LCD measures in at 3-inches with an hVGA resolution and auto live-level adjustment so it can be viewed ideally in various lighting situations. Video outputs are AV and HDMI 1.4, and ISO (in addition to auto mode) ranges from 100 to 3200. The camera is shipped with the i-Launcher software, which only mentions PC support.
Images are saved in JPEG format, with the highest resolution being 5152 x 3864, while the minimum resolution for images is 1024 x 768. Videos can be recorded in up to 720p in MPEG4, AVC/H.264 with AAC audio at 30fps. Other recording options include 640 x 480 and 320 x 240.
And finally there’s the on-board software, which gives users, not surprisingly, a Live Panorama mode that will nicely accompany the ultra wide-angle lens. There’s also Smart Auto, which aims to identify the “key elements” of scenes automatically, making the adjustments the camera determines is necessary. And finally, there’s Split Shot imaging mode.
