With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Samsung Pro 815 8MP 2/3" CCD 3264 x 2448pixels Black:
The official marketing text of Samsung Pro 815 8MP 2/3" CCD 3264 x 2448pixels Black as supplied by the manufacturer
The Pro 815 enables you to handle any shooting condition and situation, and demonstrates all the technologies of Samsung Techwin, the leading camera manufacturer in Korea. The release of the Pro 815 provides evidence that Korean digital camera designs are equivalent to or better than Japan's in terms of technology. The Pro 815 has the world's best 15x optical zoom, the world's largest 3.5 inch LCD, the world's first top LCD, and a Li-Ion battery with the world's largest capacity.

The 15x optical zoom of the Pro 815 realizes the all-in-one concept of a digital camera. From the analogue era to the digital era, it can be said that the performance of a camera depends on the expression of an image via its lens. In the transition from SLR in the analogue era to DSLR in the digital era, camera user trends are also changing, and advanced digital cameras are being developed from normal digital cameras. During this process, users buy an interchangeable lens whose angle of view is different due to the limitations of expressing images via a lens. That is very inconvenient when you take pictures. The 15x optical zoom function of the Pro 815 is equivalent to the 28mm ~ 420mm in 35mm format, and includes the 28~85mm (wide angle zoom lens) and the 80~400mm (telephoto zoom lens) that DSLR users usually enjoy. In addition, the application of the world-beating Schneider lens enables you to achieve clear and natural-looking images with high resolution. Thus, with the Pro 815, you can overcome the limitations of expressing images via a lens.

Shooting and Playing Images via the World's Largest 3.5” LCD
The Pro 815 is equipped with the world's largest 3.5 LCD, with a 235,000 pixel resolution, and the super-large LCD supports a 160 degree wide viewing angle so that you can easily and clearly view the images taken. The 16.7 million colours supported by this LCD result in natural-looking colours. In addition, applying Transmissive with Micro Reflective (TMR) technology enhances visibility when shooting images in the field. A separate electronic viewfinder is employed.

Various Display Modes via the Super-large LCD
The Pro 815 provides various display modes via the 3.5 inch LCD. Existing digital cameras enable you to combine 9 different shots in the LCD when playing images, but the Pro 815 enables you to combine 25 different shots. In addition, you can search desired images more quickly via a jog dial. The Pro 815 supports a Histogram function that allows you to check and control exposure compensation conveniently. A grid display that facilitates changing shooting angles is available. In particular, you can get the optimized shooting angle and mode by checking image information just prior to shooting, displaying an image in the center with icons and image information around the margins.

The Pro 815 provides advanced manual shooting functions that resemble the functions used by professional camera users. The Pro 815 offers a manual exposure (A, S, M) and manual focus control function. The three rings around the lens are used for zoom, manual focus, and exposure compensation. In particular, the exposure compensation function is controlled by a ring so that you can respond to various exposure conditions rapidly, and beginners can conveniently use this function with ease. In addition, it might seem that you are operating a manual camera when using the two jog dials used for controlling the aperture and shutter speed. Various focus modes including AF Lock, continuous auto focus, and AF area setting are supported. Apart from the Automatic Exposure Bracketing (AEB) and Automatic Focus Bracketing (AFB) functions, various White Balance Bracketing (WBB) functions are built into this camera so that you can obtain natural-looking colours. Furthermore, adjusting contrast and saturation enables the expression of enriched colours. Thus, you can achieve images with high picture quality, just like advanced users.

Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)
As mentioned above, Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) allows you to take each shot with minor variations in the reference exposure, which is determined based on the camera measurement for brightness. The variation interval for exposure can be adjusted by ±2 step(s). You can choose an image with the most appropriate level of brightness via the super-large 3.5” LCD. This can be a particularly useful function when it is used under special exposure conditions such as backlight, snow or beach.

Auto Focus Bracketing (AFB)
The Auto Focus Bracketing (AFB) function allows you to take each shot with minor variations in the focal distance measured by the camera. Since the variation in the focal distance is made based on a user-defined interval, it can be a very useful function when taking a close-up shot or shooting a subject with a lot of movement. This function helps you to obtain a clear image outcome in any circumstance.

White Balance Bracketing (WBB)
“White Balance” refers to the unique color temperature of a light source. By default, digital cameras are set to Auto White Balance (AWB) mode. In AWB mode, cameras match the color temperature of a light source – such as the sun – to their own color temperature to enable natural color expression. However, even if the AWB function is used, the color temperature measured by the camera for a light source may still be different from the actual color temperature of the source due to environmental factors. This results in reddish or bluish tones in the picture taken, depending on the difference in color temperatures. The White Balance Bracketing (WBB) function of the Pro 815 allows you to capture the most natural image by adjusting its setting based on color temperature measurement of the light source.

The Pro 815 provides a shooting function with an uncompressed RAW file that has up till now only been offered by advanced DSLR cameras. You can modify the colours, contrast, and resolution to suit yourself after shooting an image. Compared with an analogue camera, a RAW file is like a film that has not been developed. By developing the film, you can obtain the desired colour and suitable gray scale. In the case of a digital camera, you can achieve completed images through a procedure similar to analogue film development by using the RAW file editing programme provided separately.

The sRGB in normal use cannot express colours fully, so the final images do not display natural-looking colours. However, the Pro 815 supports Adobe RGB colour space, which offers rich, full colour so that you can achieve natural-looking colours.

Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

Viewfinder type
A viewfinder is the window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. There are two types: optical and digital. In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.
