Samsung announces three new cameras, including a DSLR

At next week’s PMA 2006, Samsung is going to make some news yet once again, and this time it has nothing to do with the company’s cellular phone business. Instead, the electronics maker is unveiling three new digital cameras at the show, including their second-ever digital SLR unit.

The L60 and L85 are your standard point-and-shoot cameras, and they come in pretty compact packages. Both can do VGA video at 30fps, and make use of 3X optical zoom. Both feature similar sized screens, with the L60 sporting a 2.4-inch LCD, and the L85 coming with a 2.5-incher. The main thing that distinguishes these two cameras is that the L60 is 6.0 megapixels, whereas the L85 has 8.0 megapixels as well as HDMI. The L60 and L85 are $300 and $500, respectively, and should be available come April.

Samsung’s GX-1L, as the company’s second digital SLR, is the successor to the GX-1. This budget 6.0 megapixel camera will come packaged in with a Schneider D-XENON lens, and will be compatible with Pentax replacement lenses. As with the L60 and L85, expect the GX-1L to hit shelves this April, but at an undetermined price.
