Samsung UK Press Release

Introducing the “S” Series of Point & Shoot cameras.

‘S’ series point and shoot digital cameras to be launched
  -  5, 6, and 8 megapixels, all with 3x optical zoom
  -  Easy and quick operation
  -  Ergonomic design with camera grip
  -  Large and Vivid TFT LCD (2.4 inch)

Samsung Cameras (CEO: Lee Jong-gu), has announced the release of the point and shoot ‘S’ series.

The ‘S’ series is great for family use and for anyone wanting ease and convenience. Purchasers can choose from a variety of models: 5, 6, and 8 megapixels in Silver or Black shades.

The ‘S’ series comes with an Effect Key allowing the user to adjust the colour of the photos being taken and also add various creative effects. The range also has an easy mode dial that allows the user to move between portrait, night pictures, and movies, swiftly, depending on the situation.

The ‘S’ series has a larger LCD screen for clearer picture quality. Printing out pictures is easy via PictBridge which enables an image to be printed directly to a connected compatible printer - without a PC.

‘S’ series, a digital camera range for the entire family, features video capabilities (MPEG4, VGA, 30fps)  which means it can even double as a camcorder. Advanced features allow “in camera” movie editing and a pause function during recording.

Samsung’s ‘S’ series cameras are expected to hit the market in early 2006.

Hi, same problem here with the 3 bleeps. I gently inserted a fingernail into the centre of the lens assembly pulling it outward carefully at the same time as pressing the on button and all was ok. Hope this works for others.

Hi, After 3.5years of happily using my S600 Digimax, problems as identified previously in 156, 182, 191 and 195 have started. Very over exposed in daylight and horizontal bands and lines in all pictures now. It worked fine last week.
Through my experimentation, if I am able to get the autosensor to work, the lines do not appear. This indicates to me that there may be a fault with that sensor, possibly a firmware fault. Were any solutions discovered.......

I have S800 which was working fine. It has been stored in its box for over a year. When I turn it on now with the SD card in, the Lens moves out and then the camera turns off. But without the Memory card inserted, It works fine!!! Any ideas??
