Samsung reveal WiFi-enabled ST80 camera, swiveling-lens HMX-E10 pocket camcorder

Camera releases are rather by-the-numbers thing with so many special variations being released by numerous companies throughout the year. Samsung's pair here does have some fascinating standout features, but one at a time. The 14.2 megapixel ST80 point-and-shoot boasts WiFi capabilities for email / direct upload of images (DLNA supported, to boot). It's also got 3x optical zoom, 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen, 720p 30fps H.264 video recording, and Sammy's "Smart Crop" quality for taking angled shots and "straightening them up" . 

This one's outstanding out September 2010 for a penny under $250. Then there is the HMX-E10 pocket camcorder with an impressive 270-degree swiveling lens and 1920 x 1080 30p H.264 HD video recording. That touchscreen you see is a 2.7-inch LCD, the lens has 2x digital zoom, connectivity is HDMI and USB and also used for charging, and release details are September as well, for $199.99.
