The Samsung CL80
is one of the first cameras to exhibit a near-unibody design created by means of the hydroforming process
. This 14-megapixel camera offers a gigantic 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen that controls nearly all of its functions. It also packs a 7X optical zoom lens, dual optical/digital image stabilization, and 720p high-def video capture at 30 frames per second.
The CL80's gesture-based controls enable users to toggle between menu options by tilting the camera, to delete an image by drawing an X on the screen, or to rotate a photo by swiping in a circular motion. Aside from being fun to use, the CL80 has impressive Wi-Fi capabilities, Bluetooth 2.0 support, and direct-from-camera upload features for Facebook, Picasa, and YouTube.
