Samsung today extended its SL-Series compact digital cameras with the introduction of the new SL720 and SL502.
Offering 12.2MP, 5x optical zooms, the new SL720 and SL502 add additional depth to Samsung’s popular SL-Series which now comprises eight individual models.

With the Samsung SL720, you have access to a 28mm wide angle lens, while the SL502 offers a standard 35mm lens.
The Samsung SL720 and Samsung SL502 offer powerful 5x optical zooms and are each paired with image stabilization to help reduce blur caused by hand movements. The Samsung SL720 offers Dual Image Stabilization, which combines both optical and digital stabilization technology. The Samsung SL502 features Digital Image Stabilization.
You can also frame your shots and review your images on the cameras’ large LCD screens. The SL720 features a 3.0 inch LCD and the SL502 features a 2.7 inch LCD.

Both cameras include Samsung’s Smart Auto shooting mode, an advanced setting which automatically chooses from one of the cameras’ 11 scene modes, to produce the best possible image. When finished taking photos, the Samsung SL720 and Samsung SL502 feature Smart Album, a useful tool that allows users to easily search for a specific image they have saved on their memory card.

The SL720 and SL502 are also the first cameras in Samsung’s SL-Series to feature Face Recognition technology. Samsung’s Face Recognition technology automatically stores up to 20 preferred faces to the cameras’ internal memory. While taking a portrait, the SL720 and SL502 will automatically recognize if one of the user’s 20 preferred faces is in the frame and identify them as a priority for focus and exposure.

Both new Samsung cameras will ship in August. The Samsung SL720 sells for $229.99 and the SL502 sells for $149.99.
