If you want a digital camera and don't know where to start, here's a hint--start right here, with the Samsung ES80 Digital Camera (Silver). This camera has it all: high resolution 12.2MP CCD sensor and 5x wide-angle 27-135mm (equivalent in 35mm format) optical zoom lens that starts with a true wide-angle 27mm and goes all the way to a telephoto 135mm. It also has VGA 640 x 480 video, a bright 2.4" LCD monitor screen and digital image stabilization for sharp, crisp images every time.
A slew of creative programs are included to make every picture and video unmistakably yours--the Perfect Portrait system (including Smile/Blink detection to catch one, and avoid the other), Face Detection mode, Beauty Shot mode (smoothes wrinkles, removes blemishes and dark circles), Self Portrait technology, and Smart Auto, which will give you the ideal settings automatically for any shooting situation you run into. All in an affordable, tiny (3.8 x 2.2 x 0.8") camera that weighs just 4.4 oz.
Get a Whole New View
Get more from your lens. By using the precision-cut ES80's 27mm wide-angle lens, with its 5x optical zoom, you instantly cover a whole-horizon field of view. Now, you can now capture full-scale memories of landmarks and landscapes, entire wedding parties and the tallest skyscrapers.
Shake, Rattle or Stroll
Even the tiniest shake can ruin your shot. The ES80's Digital Image Stabilization solves that. Digital Image Stabilization gives you sharp images no matter the condition. Whether it is low light, zooming or just a case of shaky hands, your photos come out sharp and clear.
When It Comes to Brightness, It's Brilliant
We engineered the Samsung ES80 to be bright. It has a 2.4" LCD for improved contrast and color reproduction, which allows you to enjoy a wider and clearer image. Its Intelligent LCD brightness automatically detects environmental illumination and adjusts the LCD brightness for optimal image viewing. It does the thinking for you.
Just What You Had in Mind
You see the image you want to take. You point the ES80 and the Smart Auto technology sees it too. This scene recognition technology actually chooses from 15 different settings ranging from landscape to portrait and then adjusts automatically for the perfect shot.
VGA-Quality Video in a Compact Camera
If you prefer still shots to movies but want to leave your options open, the ES80 is right for you. You will get 640 x 480 quality video at 30 frames per second. You can even use the 5x optical zoom to get up close and vividly personal.
The Camera Loves You
No one has a bad photo with the ES80's Perfect Portrait system. Not only does it fix red-eye shots, but this next-generation Face Detection technology even detects blinking. So you're always sure eyes are open and smiles are bright. In addition it evens skin tones, erases blemishes and removes dark circles!
Object Tracking AF
Achieve the beautiful composition you're looking for by simply selecting any object on the camera display. Object Tracking AF technology will track the object and focus for you-all you need to do is press the shutter button.
Smart Album automatically organizes your photos by type, date, color, and week so that you can find that one particular shot amongst 2,000. In fact, it can even do a face search!
