Samsung launching five new NX lenses

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2011

Samsung is launching five new lenses for its NX Series of mirror-less cameras, bringing the number of lenses to 10 for that system. These lenses will feature Samsung’s i-Function that allows the user use one physical control to set various parameters of the camera. For example, if you like taking photos without using a flash, Samsung has a few “fast” lenses: the 16mm f2.4 pancake, the 60mm f2.8 and the 85mm f1.4. That last is great for taking portraits indoors.

If you want a “do-it-all” lens, the 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 should work good for you outdoors. There’s also the 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 if you don’t want an extreme zoom.

Samsung demonstrates new 3D SmartTV that won’t cause dizziness

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on February 20th, 2011

There’s why it doesn’t cause dizziness, because you can’t take your eyes off of those cute gals on either side. I’m assuming that’s the reason, anyway. Samsung has demonstrated its latest 3D Smart TV in Korea. It comes with a variety of interactive features and media accessible via Samsung’s Smart HUB. This allows you to enjoy VOD content, use Skype or GTalk, YouTube and will also give you access to any of your media on external devices or on your network (DLNA).

And you can control your TV viewing experience directly from your Samsung Android Smartphone or your GalaxyTab Tablet. Sounds like a winner to us already, but it gets even better. Samsung has announced that this TV will feature new 3D glasses with Active shutter, which have been improved to reduce dizziness and eye fatigue. Which likely means that headaches will be reduced as well.

Samsung hopes to sell 10 million 3D TVs this year, LG 5 million

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on February 19th, 2011

You and I have simple dreams. Pay the bills, take care of kids, watch some good TV, maybe go out and have fun once in a while. Folks like Samsung have bigger hopes and dreams, like wanting to sell 10 million 3D TVs this year. That would be up five times from the two million it sold last year, so the goal is ambitious.

LG is keeping it more real, planning to sell 5 million or so. We are guessing they won’t reach these numbers as a result of consumer demand for 3D, but more likely because almost all new TVs will be 3D-capable. In the end, they don’t care how they do it, as long as they have the sales and the bragging rights.

Samsung launching Galaxy S II Tegra 2 version?

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2011

Looks like Samsung may be getting ready to launch a Tegra 2-based version of the Galaxy S II smartphone, for select markets. There are some good reasons to suspect that this is the case. The company has been collaborating with NVIDIA to create a new handset based on Tegra 2, and yet the Galaxy S II was the main focus of its Mobile World Congress unveilings.

Samsung hasn’t officially said that this is the case and the MWC version uses the company’s own dual-core Exynos SoC, but the official specs lists the Samsung SoC as a feature that “may not be applicable in some regions.” So, putting 2 and 2 together, it looks like there will be a Tegra 2 version.

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2011

Those of us with a PS3 have had the new Netflix interface for a while,but now Samsung HDTVs are getting the updated version of the Netflix Watch Instantly interface. The latest interface appeared after a firmware upgrade on a UN46C6500 LCD HDTV.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on January 31st, 2011

Europe may not have Netflix, but they have an equivalent called Lovefilm. You might remember that Amazon recently bought the company. Well, now Lovefilm is in the news once again.

Samsung has announced its intententions to include Lovefilm movie streaming as an app on all of its Blu-ray players in the UK. This will enhance both the subscription service’s profile and its own ability to providing the user with multifunctional, “smart” technology. If others start including Lovefilm on their devices, Amazon just may end up owning UK TV screens at some point.
