Samsung's SLR Canon Competition

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Samsung has gone one step further into the camera market today, announcing its very first 6-megapixel digital SLR, the GX-1S. This SLR hopes to compete with the Canon 350D and Nikon D50. Partnering up with Pentax on this project, the GX-1S is fairly light (16.2 oz.) and small and is basically a re-branded Pentax DS2. It has a shooting speed of 2.8 frames per second (up to 8 in JPEG mode) and a 2.5-inch TFT color LCD screen. A built-in retractable P-TTL flash with auto pop-up makes shooting extra simple and flash modes include Auto, Manual, Auto/Red-eye reduction, Manual/red-eye reduction. Refresh time is 3 seconds. You'll be able to buy one of these in February but no price just yet.
