Samsung unveils compact trio

More snapper choice

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Samsung digicam production line continues unabated, with the South Korean giant unveiling details of three upcoming models: the i80, i100 and S1060.

Samsung's i80 is an 8.1-megapixel snapper...

Its i80 and i100 further expand its i-series of digicams, which focuses on combining photography with music. Both new models operate as personal media players for MP3 format tracks, while still being 8.1-megapixel and 10.2-megapixel cameras, respectively.

...while the i100 has 10.2 million pixels

Unfortunately, the number of megapixels awarded to each camera is their only real differentiating factor. Both cameras also have a 3x optical zoom and a 3in LCD display, in addition to face-recognition technology. Both have an ISO sensitivity of 3200 and digital image stabilisation to minimise the effect of last night’s drinking session on your early morning photography.

The S1060: not a slim profile digicam, but still powerful

Samsung’s S1060 sits slightly higher than its new i-series buddies in terms of technical capability, although it shares the same 10.2-megapixel sensor as the i100.

It may have a smaller 2.7in LCD, but Samsung’s equipped the S1060 with a more powerful 5x optical zoom and a 5x digital zoom to compensate. Face recognition is included too.

The i80 and i100 will appear in the UK in April and May respectively, with the i80 priced at £150 (€210/$300) and the i100 at £180 (€240/$330). So far, Samsung’s only said that the S1060 will be available in the spring, but not how much it’ll cost.
