Samsung's fast making a name for itself as a company that throws more than the basics
into its point-and-shoots, and it looks to be continuing the trend with its new ST5500 camera, which just recently cleared the FCC. Judging from the specs, this one certainly looks to have things covered on the picture-taking front, with it packing an ample 7x optical zoom, 14.2 megapixels, ISO settings up to ISO 3200, a max 1/2000 shutter speed, and support for 720p video at 30 fps for good measure. Toss in a fairly large 3.5-inch touchscreen and built-in 802.11 b/g WiFi (all in a surprisingly compact package) and you've got a camera that just might turn a few heads. Of course, there's no indication of a price or release date just yet, but you can check out a few more pics and even the camera's user manual at the links below.
A rep from Samsung has given us the following statement regarding the camera:
Information and technical specifications made public by the FCC regarding the Samsung ST5500 are not final and are subject to change prior to launch. Final specifications and details will be made available by Samsung at a later date with the official launch of the product.
