Samsung introduces a new model to its compact and stylish L-Series. The new 8 Megapixel L100 joins the popular lineup and combine a number of features commonly found on higher-priced, more advanced models. The Samsung L100 features a high-quality, 3x optical zoom Samsung NV lens and pack a large, 2.5" LCD screen which will automatically brighten or dim depending on the current lighting situation. For reviewing and sharing images with others, the Samsung L100 also includes an intuitive Multi-Slide Show. With Mutli-Slide Show, end-users can playback their images using five different slide transitions and can also have their images set to scroll to the cameras’ preloaded music or their own favorite MP3 files.

For low-light environments and to help minimize the effect of camera shake, the L100 utilizes DIS to produce sharp, clear images. The Samsung L100 also features a number of user-friendly features, including Face Detection, Self Portrait and Auto Red Eye Fix modes. Face Detection technology makes taking pictures of family and friends a snap, as it detects up to nine faces and automatically adjusts focus and exposure to ensure better composition and image quality.

Self Portrait mode is a unique functionality that takes the guessing out of taking a self portrait. By utilizing Face Detection technology, the L100 automatically detects the user’s face, adjust focus and exposure, and will only allow a photo to be taken if the subject is centered in the frame. For enhanced versatility, shooters can remove red-eye during image playback, or for even greater convenience, set the cameras to Auto Red Eye Fix to automatically detect and eliminate red-eye from their images as they are taken.

Another user-friendly feature of the Samsung L100 is Function Description. Designed to reduce the intimidation factor of the cameras’ various modes, Function Description automatically provides a brief and easy to understand description of each setting when scrolling through the cameras’ menus, helping the end-user determine which setting is appropriate for their current shooting scenario. The cameras’ Photo Help Guide is another intuitive feature incorporated into the digital camera. Photo Help Guide offers the end-user a guided tour of how to take better images as well as easy-to-follow tips instructing them how to obtain excellent results.

By using the cameras’ Successive Recording mode, users can pause, and then resume filming of video clips without having to save the clips as individual files. Additionally, users can operate the cameras’ optical zooms and engage DIS image stabilization while filming to compensate for camera shake and to reduce blur. The Samsung is available in February at $199 MSRP.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
