Samsung’s HD-ready retro digital camera

Samsungretro_1 Remember we highlighted Samsung’s retro L85 digital camera a couple of months back? Well, it’s been slightly improved. Yes, it still looks very much the classic snapper – only now it’s got a shot of cutting-edge technology – it will take your pictures in high definition.

So what does this mean? Well, if you’ve picked up a HD-ready TV, you can attach the Samsung L85 digital camera to it and display your photos with the kind of stunning detail lost on your traditional computer screen. The only downside is the extra piece of kit you’ll need to do this – which will add another £50 to the price tag.

Still – it’s a cool addition to a very nice 8mp camera, which also boasts a 2.5-inch LCD screen on the rear, 5x optical zoom, 11 scene modes, 32MB of storage space (which can be boosted by cards) and enough battery power for 300 shots.

Recommended price is around £300, but shopping around should get it for less.
