Samsung camera leaks with Wi-Fi, OLED touch

updated 11:25 am EST, Sat December 26, 2009

Samsung CL80 also has 14MP, 7X zoom

Samsung has inadvertently tipped its hand as to a camera it may introduce at CES. The CL80 is poised to be Samsung's first real connected camera and will have Wi-Fi to upload to Facebook, Flickr, Photobox and Picasa without having to sync with a computer. Its interface will be similarly advanced as Samsung promises a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen with haptic (vibration) feedback as the primary control scheme.

As an actual camera, it also stands to be one of Samsung's most advanced point-and-shoots with a 14-megapixel sensor and a 7X (31-217mm film equivalent) wide angle lens with hardware image stabilization. Its light sensitivity will reach up to ISO 4,800 (6,400 at 3 megapixels), and it will shoot H.264 video at up to 720p resolution and with HDMI output for full-resolution previews.

Samsung expectedly doesn't provide any signs of how much the camera will cost or when it will ship, but the appearance of an official US page indicates the company could use CES as the venue and may release the camera soon. [via DPReview forums]

    All they have to do now is add in

    a 3G broadband chip and GPS and they'll be ready to compete with Nokia in the smartphone market.

    $399

    With Samsung junk, I expect it to be priced at $399, but worth -$399, just like their junk cellphones—good for steamrollers—because of their junky and dysfunctional user interface.

    Stay away from this c***.

    wide angle?

    31mm barely qualifies & doesn't even reach the 28mm standard that used to be status quo for 35mm, so if one is going to reference an older standard accuracy counts...

    For me wide angles were only 'notable' beyond that eg 24mm or wider - because lenses with this angle of view are tougher to make for the smaller sensors the marketing guys have decided to change the fundamental definition of human visual perception. Lenswashing is alive & well.

    Wide angle is available aka Panasonic Lumix...
