Following on from the seven new digital camera models the company announced at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung announced its entry-level SL630 in mid-January 2010. Most specifications for the Samsung SL630 have yet to be revealed, with only a brief outline of the SL630's features and functionality so far available.

What we do know is that the Samsung SL630 is based around a twelve megapixel image sensor, and includes a 5x optical zoom lens that provides 35mm-equivalent focal lengths ranging from a useful 28mm wide angle to a 140mm telephoto. The SL630 also includes Samsung's Dual Image Stabilization function, which couples optical (lens-based) image stabilization with a software anti-blur system. Images are framed and reviewed on a 2.7-inch LCD display with 230,000 dot resolution, roughly equivalent to a 320 x 240 pixel array. Power comes courtesy of a proprietary lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

The SL630 includes face detection capability, used to provide both a smile shot function that triggers the camera's shutter when your subject is smiling, and a blink detection function that warns when your subject's eyes were closed. Face detection is also used for a skin-smoothing beauty shot function, and a red-eye fix function that aims to correct the common photographic defect after capture. The Samsung SL630 also includes a Smart Auto function, and a standard-definition 30 frames-per-second AVI video mode.

Pricing for the Samsung SL630 hadn't been disclosed at press time. Availability is slated for March 2010.
