Secaucus, NJ (February 23, 2006) — Samsung Camera is pleased to announce a second digital SLR model for 2006–the GX-1L–an entry-level, six-megapixel model.

This, combined with its full range of advanced manual functions, make the GX-1L perfect for the beginning through advanced DSLR user.”

For exceptional image quality and control, the GX-1L has a five-point, wide-area Auto Focus system, with a choice of AF-single or AF-continuous, providing accurate auto focusing in a variety of shooting conditions. The GX-1L also incorporates a high-precision, three-mode metering system including, 16-segment multi-pattern metering, center-weighted metering and spot metering. For additional control and creativity, users can choose from eight scene modes including Kids, Pets, Candlelight, Museum, Night Scene, Surf & Snow, Text and Sunset and several White Balance settings.

As with many high-end Samsung camera models, the GX-1L was developed for use with Schneider optics. The GX-1L uses the Schneider D-XENON 18mm~55mm lens and will be available as a body only, or bundled with the D-XENON lens as a kit. For added convenience the GX-1L can be used with many Pentax DSLR lenses and KAF2 and KAF mount lenses.

Designed for easy use, the GX-1L includes a host of automatic operations including an innovative Auto Picture mode that automatically selects the appropriate picture mode from Standard,

Landscape, Macro or Action depending on the subject. When in Auto Sensitivity mode the GX-1L automatically selects the camera’s sensitivity including brightness and focal length to help reduce camera shake and ensure a steady, clear image. And, for easy selection, all major functions can be accessed from the large, easy-to-read mode dial.
