Samsung prosumer camera
Samsung has announced the VLUU NV7 OPS, a high-end consumer camera initially headed to the Korean market in October, says AVING. Though the NV7 will have a 7.2MP CCD sensor and 7x optical zoom, the most unusual aspects of the camera are the body size and the anti-shake technology. The unit will actually have two anti-shake systems: Advanced Shake Reduction, and the centerpiece Optical Picture Stabilization (OPS). The body meanwhile will be a mere 0.8 inches thick, which is less than a third the girth of the competing Canon S3 IS. The NV7 will also be able to charge via USB and record MPEG-4 video at 30fps and 640x480 resolution.
