Metting the small and cute compact digital camera, Samsung IT100

My new camera Samsung IT100

I used to wish I had a compact digital camera, and I ve got an opportunity to experience the Samsung IT100 in this nice weather. Light and slim body, neat design, wide LCD, and smart functions! When looking at this one by one, I think this is as good as DSLR for shots. When DSLR is heavy, this is the great alternative to have in my pocket when going out.

As a simple specification, it has optical 5x zoom, 12.2M pixels, ultra wide angle 24mm, and 720P(1280x720) HD video recording! On top of that, IS, smart function, self shot face recognition, beauty shot function with skin compensation and face recognition~ This comes with 4 colors such as red, black, blue, and metallic silver, and mine is silver. I think this silver looks better than normal silver. Depending on the light angle, it looks like more dark silver or light silver. This color is such a sleek color, I think!

Not only with the white balance, but also with Soft, Vivid, Forest, Retro, Cool, Calm, and Classic mode, you can make various type of pictures, so once using the function well, this camera will allow you to take a lot of great pictures! Recent digital cameras are all like this? I was surprised at a compact digital camera!

I m using the Samsung haptic 2 cell phone also, and I like this solid and firm feeling. The thickness is a bit thicker than a cell phone. This is light and slim, so easy to carry, and I like the phrase This is made for Korean . I feel really good, because I ve met a small but intelligent kid. Therefore, this is called IT100 from Intelligent . I think this camera will be with me a lot of times.

IT100, nice to meet you~

Intelligent digital camera IT100 with can easily take high quality pictures Preview

Today, I have an intelligent secretary. What do I mean? As of today, for 6 weeks, I m going to promote the intelligent digital camera IT10. This intelligent IT100 has been represented as my secretary, and now I introduce. Please, take a look at the intelligent IT100, and now I m introducing this.

This is a small size, 12.2M pixels, and optical 5x zoom camera. It also supports HD 30 fps 720P video recording, HDMI port, and smart auto, so I m really expecting this camera.

They are the composition of the intelligent IT100. Manual, battery, memory card, charger, and USB cable are here.

This IT100 comes with 4 colors such as Warm Gray, Navy Biue, Silver, and Tomato Red.

With the multi coated lens, the 28mm 5x zoom lens for zoom and wide angle prevent chromatism which degrades image quality, so it allows users to have closer and better image quality. This is the front of the IT100.

230K pixels, 6.9cm(3.0 ) LCD gives a pleasure of watching pictures in the big and vivid screen. Especially, the Intelligent LCD function automatically adjusts the brightness of the LCD depending on the light around. Under the bright light, it compensates the brightness to show better LCD, while under the darkness, this reduces the brightness to prevent battery consumption. This is the LCD, zoom lever, and mode dial at the back.

With the combination of optical and digital compensation which is lens shift type, you can get a vivid picture in the dark room. When it comes to image process and quality, with the perfectly upgraded Dual IS function, this can upgrade pictures. The top of this camera consists of a speaker, power button, and shutter button.

On the bottom of the IT10, there s a tripod hole, battery hole, and memory card slot.

Battery and memory card is filled. There s a lever to prevent the battery from dropping when the cover is open.

Lens used for 5x optical zoom

This is a configuration. Of course, there s Korean, so you don t need to worry. The innovative smart auto function from Samsung helps you take great pictures which appear taken by professionals under any circumstances. The smart auto function automatically analyzes the situation and sets the optimized scene mode among 11 scene modes. Users don t need to set the scene mode every time to take high quality pictures, so I call this an intelligent digital camera IT100.

This intelligent digital camera IT100 supports the perfect portrait system which is Samsung s unique function to take perfect human pictures developed by Samsung. This consists of 6 functions such as face recognition up to 10 persons, smile shot which never misses smile, blink detection deleting blink, self guide helping self shots, beauty shot eliminating flaw on faces and making handsome, and red eye elimination deleting red eye caused by flash.

Honestly, I couldn t introduce all the functions of the IT100, today. However, I m going to call it a day of today s introduction. Let me show you how hard this camera can work for 6 weeks with pictures. Please look forward to this.

Article: Samsung C10/C14 - Samsung Focuses on Ergonomics with Two New Digital Camcorders

BusinessWire - Samsung Electronics America Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, today announced the SMX-C14 and SMX-C10, two new ergonomically designed, compact digital camcorders offering industry-leading style and design. The new SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 also feature Samsung's stylish Touch of Color(TM) (ToC(TM)) finish that was first introduced in the company's line of flat-panel HDTVs. With ToC design, a hint of color is naturally blended into the deep black body for an attractive crystalline appearance.
The SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 are ideal for the on-the-go consumer and offer an impressive 10x optical zoom paired with Hyper Image Stabilization to help reduce blurry footage. Both camcorders also feature a 230,000-dot, swiveling 2.7-inch wide LCD screen, which allows users to effortlessly frame their subjects and review their footage. Similar to the full-HD HMX-R10, the new SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 boast Samsung's Active Angle Lens. This unique design helps reduce fatigue by allowing consumers to grip the camcorder in a more relaxed manner, easing the overall stress on their wrist and elbow. Unlike traditional camcorders, the relaxed grip also removes the LCD screen from the user's line of sight, enabling them to always keep an eye on their subject while recording.

"The SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 are truly unique camcorders, starting with their eye-catching ToC design," said Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of Audio/Video and Digital Imaging Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "In addition to being ultra-compact, ergonomic and stylish, these camcorders offer a host of advanced, yet easy-to-use capabilities that encourage consumers to integrate video recording into their everyday digital lifestyles."
The new SMX-C14 features 16GB of internal Samsung flash memory and is expandable via an SD/SDHC memory card slot. Thanks to H.264 compression, which drastically enhances recording times when used with standard definition video, users can record over six hours of footage directly to the SMX-C14's 16GB of built-in memory. The SMX-C10 does not feature internal memory and requires the use of SD/SDHC media. Both the SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 also offer substantial battery life, providing more than two hours and forty minutes of record time on a single charge.
The SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 also incorporate Samsung's play-edit-sharing program called intelli-studio. The built-in intelli-studio program allows consumers to connect the camcorder to any computer via USB and edit and play their video without having to install supporting software. intelli-studio also facilitates the process of uploading users' content to popular video-sharing Web sites. For added convenience, a one-touch "upload" button, available directly on the SMX-C14 and SMX-C10, provides a direct connection to YouTube(TM), further reducing the number of steps needed to upload footage. In addition, the camcorders also allow basic on-camera editing, including the ability to merge and split video files.
Samsung also enhances the video recording experience for end-users thanks to several unique features, including time-lapse recording, animated thumbnails and a versatile charging system. Time-lapse recording allows users to program the camcorder to record at a pre-set interval of one image every one, three, five, 10, 15 or 30 seconds. Time-lapse recording is especially useful for condensing extremely long events, such as rolling clouds on a sunny day, into a short, easy-to-view video.
Samsung's animated thumbnail feature simplifies the way users search for video clips on the SMX-C14 and SMX-C10. Each video clip saved on the camcorder is represented by a small thumbnail on the LCD screen. When scrolling through one's videos, each thumbnail will provide a short playback of the video file when highlighted by the user. The SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 also feature a versatile charging system. Users can either recharge the battery by connecting the camcorder to the supplied AC adapter or via USB while the camcorder is connected to a computer.
The SMX-C14 and SMX-C10 will be available in July 2009.

Samsung IT100 preview? First impression

By accident, I ve got a chance to use the Samsung IT100. The first meeting. It seems just a normal compact camera. Not unique, just normal. 12.2M pixels. I thought now a compact camera has been developed much. I like the red and it s cute. Other people are good at preview and review, but I m not. I m just a photographer, so I just do this with pictures.

Anyway, at the first meeting, I doubt whether this red one would become my third eye.

Every time I pushed the shutter, I thought compact cameras have developed not only with the pixels. Noise, color, contrast, etc. White balance is the most impressive one. Setting it on auto, I took a night scene. It surprisingly set the good white balance. I didn t need to set it by myself. One more unique function.. Smart auto adjusts the mode by itself such as closeup, scenery, etc. It s such an amazing.

For snap picture which I like, this gives great pictures. Anyway, I like this one for the first meeting. Of course, there s strong and weak point. However, this performance is enough to be a sub camera. No, it s sufficient to be a main camera? I ll review this after several weeks, but the IT100, intelligent compact camera. I can t ignore compact cameras any more.

Doing by itself!! Intelligent digital camera Samsung IT100 Preview

Hello, I m TaeYang (Meaning Sun) Park. This time, I ve got a good opportunity to use a Samsung compact digital camera and review it as a VLUU GRAPHER. I ve needed a compact camera, so I tried to buy an old one, but I ve got this change at the right moment. The name of the digital camera is the IT100, and it s for lazy genius, I heard. Users don t need set things, and the camera automatically optimizes the situation and makes a shot. For those who are not used to adjust things for a camera, this is a great camera. You just can focus on the scene and composition.

There are so many convenient and charming functions. I m expecting how great quality pictures it show. Let s open the IT100.

IT100 box set. As it s small, it s filled well. Looking at the silver picture, I thought it s silver, but

Opening the box, I could see the CD and manual.

Inside, the IT100 body and other items are separate with partitions.

Opening the IT100 in the plastic bag! It s red, not silver. Personally, silver or black was better, but I need to accept the truth and will like this.

Items in the other partition. Simple

I took out all the items.

Shot with the name tag of VLUU GRAPHER.

It s sensitive that a memory card was also provided as the Sandisk. In the original package, there s no memory card.

Battery and memory card are put in for operation. Let s have a look of the appearance more closely.

On the whole, it s simple and neat. Red color is also pretty. It seems a little thicker as a slim concept camera. Considering the 28mm optical 5x zoom, it s the best, they say. For me who used DSLR, this thickness is also satisfactory.

I took the picture of the IT100 to show the design and red color simply.

It s been a long time, since I experienced a compact digital camera. Functions have been developed extraordinarily. Especially, the IT100 has all the brand new functions, and appears an optimized camera for beginners. Even my parents will be comfortable with this. As a VLUU Grapher, my job is to post picture on my blog. Using my concept, I will take unique pictures and give them to you. Please have a look on my special pictures.
