Samsung reveals two new S-series cameras

The beauty of those dinky digi cameras that fit snugly in your pocket is they’re always ready. And each time we get a new one in the Stuff offic

South Korean gadget legend Samsung is climbing the ruts with two newbies in its S-series range. The S760 and S860 look practically identical – like twins who’s mum dresses them the same. Bless. Except, the S760 packs 7-megapixels, while the S860 packs 8-megapixels.

Otherwise, they’re exactly the same. Both sport Samsung’s intelligent face recognition tech, which pretty much does what it says on the tin.

The new Samsung cams have a 3x optical zoon, a 2.4in LCD display, focal length of 6.3 to 18.9mm, 11 scene modes and a digital image stabliser for helping to keep your pics a bit less wobbly.

The specs don’t stop there, though. Both the S760 and S860 boast SD, MMC and SDHC card support – giving you enough space to shoot an army. Uh, shoot as in take their pics, obviously.

Both shoot AVI movie clips at 15 or 30fps, up to 640×480 pixels, and both have manual and automatic white balance. All that in a tiny 93x62x26.5mm.

We’re going to need a bigger ladder.
