Samsung S1000 camera - Movie stabilization
The Samsung Digimax S1000 can even record more than one-hour of high quality VGA (640×480) video at 30 fps when using a 256MB memory card. With VGA technology, this model provides a larger screen view and clearer video quality when played on an LCD or TV screen. For steady recording, the built-in movie stabilization will automatically detect and correct lateral and vertical camera movement caused by the shooter’s unsteady hand. All three models also enable users to take advantage of the 3x optical zoom even while in the movie recording mode.

Samsung S1000 compact camera - Video editing
The new Samsung S1000 also features robust movie clip editing functions which allow users to be more creative with their images than ever before. For example, “S” series owners can select and save a portion of a movie clip during playback and/or select part of a movie clip to be saved as a still image. All of this can be done right on the camera, without the aid of a computer or third party editing software. Also included is Samsung’s unique successive video function that allows shooters to pause and resume video recording at any time and merge multiple video files into one single file.

For further convenience, all Samsung digital still cameras feature a built-in image editing function allowing users to edit a variety of images without the use of a PC. The Trimming function can be used to cut an undesired part of an image and save only the required part. When short of memory, shooters can use the Resizing function to recover some of the memory space, by resizing and saving images in a smaller size. The Rotating function allows users to rotate an image in the desired direction and save it. The Samsung Digimax S1000 will have an estimates street price of $349.99 and will be available in August 2006.

To ensure the clarity of images regardless of shooting range, the Auto Macro function automatically adjusts shooting distance and focus. By using the macro button, users can set the camera to automatically adjust distance and focus from between 5cm to infinity. Equipped with 16MB of built-in memory, the Samsung S1000 allows shooters to save pictures without a memory card while the Copy to Card function allows users to seamlessly transfer images saved in the internal memory to external memory.
