The Samsung WB550 digital camera is a step up from the Samsung WB500 model launched in March. The fully featured WB550 brings all the perks of its predecessor, with the added convenience of built-in HDMI connectivity so that you can share the best of your shots in HD clarity.

Samsung WB550 digital camera

Offering a 24mm ultra wide Schneider lens and powerful 10x optical zoom, the WB550 brings you closer to your subject to deliver super premium photographs. The high-performance 3-inch LCD screen lets you frame and review your images with ease and the resolution of 12.2 mega pixels will ensure your images rival the quality of those hanging on gallery walls. Perfect for the ‘prosumer’ who wants to showcase their shots to others, the camera’s built-in HDMI output means you can connect the camera to a HD television without having to use a cradle, bringing your images or 720p video footage direct to your HD television.

Samsung’s WB550 is available now in black and grey for the RRP of $579.
