Camera News

Samsung showed off five new camera models today. Samsung introduced three additions to their “Dual View” camera line, which have unique front-facing displays (in addition to the traditionally placed ones at the back) which allow you to take self-portraits more easily. They’ve also introduced a pair of compact super-zoom cameras, one of which (the WB210) features a 12X optical zoom lens that starts at a really wide 24 mm.
