New Samsung CL5 (aka PL10) continues the mp3-player-camera tradition
Samsung, being an electronics company, is trying all sorts of hybrids. One of the hybrids that has been continuing in their product line-up through the years as a niche product is the digital camera with mp3 music player functionality.
And the latest entry in this niche is the new Samsung CL5 (aka PL10). Continuing with the dual-name tradition, Samsung is guaranteed to create global confusion. It's bad enough that there are over 400 current digital cameras, how can the average consumer keep track of it all? We follow cameras 24x7 and we can't!
The camera itself is your typical folded-optics bijou-cam with a basic 3x optical zoom lens, a 9mp 1/2.5" sensor, 2.7" LCD, SD/SDHC, LiIon, etc, etc, etc.
