Samsung shows no signs of slowing down its compact digital camera development schedule. Today in London, the company unveiled three new models under its existing NV series and unveiled the latest addition to its "i" snapper series.

The NV8, NV15 and NV20 are described as "premium compact cameras" and feature an 8, 10 and 12-megapixel capability respectively. Each also has a 2.5in LCD screen and measures 9.6 x 6.0 x 1.8cm.

The NV20 has a maximum image size of 4000 x 3000 pixels, while the NV15 and NV8 have slightly lower maximums of 3648 x 2736 and 3264 x 2448 pixels respectively.

Samsung has also built in a feature called Auto Contrast Balance, which enables each of the cameras to compensate for the brightness of a shadowed subject with a rear light source. A total of 14 pre-programmed scene modes are available, including one that can capture movies at up to 640 x 480 resolution in MPEG-4 and at a rate of 30 frames per second .

A nice feature is its inbuilt MP3 player and Tour Guide, which the company describes as a guide that provides users with access to travel information for 2,600 regions across 30 countries. So there’s no need to carry your TomTom around on your holidays and additional maps can be downloaded from the internet, for which there is 450MB of memory. Although the camera supports SD, SDHC and MMC memory cards too.

The i85 also includes the three N series models’ 14 scene settings, such as night and portrait, together with a 5x optical zoom and maximum image size of 3264 x 2448 pixels.
