Samsung unveiled the CL80 and TL240 at the CES 2010. The CL80 and the TL240 have a 14.2 mega-pixel resolution. The CL80 stands out with the integration of Wi-Fi connectivity and a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touch screen. The TL240 has a 3.5 inch OLED touchscreen.

Samsung used hydro-forming technology for the CL80 and TL240 casing. Hydro-forming allows for greater flexibility during the design process and gives manufacturers the ability to produce smoother silhouettes, seamless bonding, and higher quality surfaces.

Despite their svelte 0.77-inch stainless-steel frames, the CL80 and the TL240 house impressive Schneider‑KREUZNACH lenses which boast a design inspired by the mirror-writings of Leonardo da Vinci. When powered up, the cameras’ lens barrels extend and the lens specifications, including focal length and speed, appear with a hidden color accent in the concave reflective ring that surrounds each lens. These specifications are inscribed in reverse on the cameras’ lens barrels and disappear when the lens naturally retracts into the camera body.

The CL80 allows consumers to share their video and photos on the go without being tethered to their laptops or home PCs thanks to its wireless connectivity options, which include Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi and DLNA. Using an available Wi-Fi connection, users can send a digital image to any email address using the camera’s touch‑screen QWERTY keypad or selecting those stored the camera’s address book. Users can also utilize the QWERTY keypad to include text within the body of the email. The CL80’s Wi‑Fi connection also allows users to upload their images directly to popular websites such as Facebook, Picasa and YouTube.

he Samsung CL80 incorporates an impressive 3.7-inch wide WVGA AMOLED screen, while the TL240 features a 3.5” touch screen TFT LCD. Both cameras’ massive displays house Samsung’s Smart Gesture touch‑screen user interface which is complimented by an internal Gravity sensor for added ease‑of‑use.

he CL80 and the TL240 offer powerful 7x optical zooms on the high-performance, oversized Schneider‑KREUZNACH lenses. To help reduce blur, these impressive lenses are paired with Samsung’s Dual Image Stabilization technology, which combines both optical and digital stabilizers to counteract the negative effects of a user’s shaky hand. End-users can also take advantage of the cameras’ 7x optical zooms and optical image stabilization while recording video. Both the CL80 and the TL240 offer 720p HD video recording at 30 frames-per-second in H.264 format. The cameras also come complete with built-in HDMI connectivity, giving users the ability to effortlessly view their HD video and digital still images on an HDTV or HD monitor.
