Samsung L73 Digicam Can Spot Faces

Unlike most of those coy camera vendors who are saving their new goods for February's PMA show, Samsung is putting out right here in Vegas with five new models. Coolest is the 7-megapixel L73 ($300). With it, Samsung joins the anti-aphasia campaigns of Canon, Fujifilm, and Nikon by adding face detection. Its Intelligent Face Recognition Technology adjusts the focus and exposure so that up to nine mugs in the shot come out sharp and bright. Another cool feature: It shots video at up to 800x592 pixels (at 30 fps). Other specs are pretty standard: 3X optical zoom, ISO 1600, and 2.5-inch LCD screen.
