Samsung Introduces the Slim SL201

10.2 Megapixel Digital Camera Offers Digital Image Stabilization and Face Detection

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., July 16, 2008 — Samsung extends its range of compact point-and-shoot digital cameras with the introduction of the SL201. While slim, the SL201 features a resolution of 10.2 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom lens, and a large 2.7-inch intelligent LCD which will automatically brighten or dim based on available lighting.

“The SL201 truly makes it easy for anyone to take great pictures in virtually any situation,” said Tony Sorice Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Digital Imaging at Samsung Electronics America. “Its slim design allows consumers to take it with them wherever they go. With the Function Description Guide and a host of automated settings, it’s easier than ever to get the very best images in any environment.”

For added versatility, the new SL201 features Face Detection, Self Portrait, and Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) technology. Face Detection makes taking pictures of family and friends a snap as it automatically detects up to nine faces and adjusts focus and exposure settings to ensure better composition and image quality. Self Portrait mode is a unique function that takes the guessing out of taking a self portrait. When in Self Portrait mode, the SL201 automatically detects the user’s face, adjusts focus and exposure, and allows a photo to be taken only if the subject is centered in the frame. Samsung’s improved DIS technology helps the user capture blur-free images. Thanks to the enhanced sensitivity of the SL201’s imaging sensor, which features a maximum ISO of 1600, and the camera’s DIS technology, users can rest assured that they’ll be able to capture images in low-light situations, especially when the use of a flash is not desired.

With eleven scene modes to choose from including Night, Children, Landscape, Text, Close Up, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, and Beach & Snow, shooters can effortlessly adjust the camera to capture the most superb image possible in any setting. Additionally, the SL201 features Function Description and a Photo Help Guide. Function Description provides a brief and easy-to-understand description of each setting when scrolling through the camera’s menus, helping the end-user determine which setting is appropriate for their current shooting scenario. The Photo Help Guide is another intuitive component incorporated into the digital camera. It offers the end-user a guided tour of how to take better images as well as easy-to-follow tips instructing them how to obtain excellent results.
