Samsung has unveiled two brand new entries into its digital camera brand, one of which lets you do everything you could want with your pictures without connecting to a PC, and the other providing HD capabilities in a very small package.
First up is the ST80 (pictured), a portable digital camera that has native Wi-Fi connectivity built-in. Take a picture with it and then immediately send it to Facebook or Photobucket. Take a video and upload it to YouTube within seconds.
That is, as long as you're in a spot that has a Wi-Fi connection. And for those who are on the go, it even comes with a Boingo Wireless account. Boingo is the company that provides premium Wi-Fi services at airports and hotels across the world.
The more technical details include a 3x optical zoom, 720p HD video recording capability, and a 30 frames per second record rate. This model is due out in September for $250.
In the other corner is the HMX-E10, a tiny, flesible camera that can record video in stunning 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution. The small camera can also swivel around 270 degrees to make it easy to focus on anything, even the person taking the video. There's even onboard software to edit videos right from the camera, and for those who prefer to take still images it even has a panoramic point-and-click mode.
The HMX-E10 is also slated for a September release, and its price stands at $200.
