Samsung Introduces CL65
With built-in wireless connectivity and geo-taggng
RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. – August 13, 2009 - Samsung Electronics America, Inc., today unveiled the CL65, featuring built-in geo-tagging, Bluetooth 2.0, DLNA compatibility, and Wi-Fi* connectivity. With the new CL65, users can make a true visual connection with their family and friends by quickly and easily sharing photo memories and moments while on-the-move.
Packed full of innovation and encased in a sleek compact frame, the CL65 offers the unprecedented combination of geo-tagging, Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, and DLNA compatibility. The geo-tagging capability allows users to keep track of where they’ve traveled, while DLNA compatibility and Wi-Fi connectivity enable users to send and share pictures almost as quickly as they take them. The CL65 is a great way to keep your network of friends and family in the know.
Thanks to the built-in geo-tagging capability, the CL65 displays the city on the camera’s LCD screen, providing users with a display of the location where they’re taking a photo, as well as a reference for when they are reviewing and managing images. With the embedded PC software package ‘intelli-studio’, users can also easily view, edit and manage their pictures right on the camera before uploading them to popular photo-sharing sites, such as Picasa™.
Using Bluetooth 2.0 technology, users can wirelessly beam their favorite images to other compatible devices. Using a Wi-Fi connection, users can now email photos directly from their camera and upload them to popular social networking sites. The CL65 also offers DLNA connectivity, allowing users to wirelessly connect to other DLNA compatible devices within their networked home, such as an HDTV, to view and share their images.
The CL65 sports a 3.5” wide touch-screen LCD. With a resolution of 1,152K, almost four times more than traditional cameras, the CL65’s advanced display provides users with an enhanced viewing experience. The CL65 also incorporates Samsung’s Smart Gesture User Interface. With a simple tilt, users can now easily access key features such as Smart Auto, movie, and program mode.
The CL65 comes with a 12.2 megapixel CCD and a high-quality, 35mm Schneider‑KREUZNACH lens. Offering a powerful internal 5x optical zoom, the CL65’s lens produces clean and clear images with balanced resolution from the center of images to the edges. Alongside professional‑grade photos, the CL65 records 720p HD video at 30 frames-per-second in H.264 format, giving twice as much recording capacity as MPEG4 format, and four times more than MJPEG format, all in the palm of your hand. HDMI connectivity means that your HD videos can be enjoyed on any HDTV or HD Monitor.
Additionally, the camera’s touch-screen user interface provides users with Samsung’s innovative and intuitive One Touch Auto Focus system. This puts complete command of the camera’s focusing system right in the hands of the photographer, allowing the user to pinpoint the exact area to lock focus on by simply touching the location on the LCD screen. Users can also automatically trigger the camera to then take the image by continuing to hold the location with their fingertip.
“The CL65 is all about spreading the joy everywhere from anywhere,” said Sang Jin Park, CEO, Samsung Digital Imaging Co. Ltd. “Never before has a manufacturer provided such a range of technologies in a compact digital camera, giving consumers unprecedented flexibility when it comes to how, when, and where they share their digital images. Geo-tagging keeps track of where the photographer has been, allowing them to quickly and easily share content with their network, while Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi capabilities allow for the simplest of uploads without needing a computer. This new powerhouse point-and-shoot camera will raise the bar for innovation and set a new standard by which all other manufacturers will be measured.”
