Worldís Slimmest Camera

ILLED as the slimmest 7 megapixel and 7x optical zoom digital still camera in the world, the Samsung L77 is a beauty. The elegant metal body is so small you leave it in your pocket permanently. (Just donít forget to take it out before going to the cleaners.)

This is a camera for all time. Youíll always be prepared when you see that perfect picture looming ahead. You wouldnít want to miss a shot that can never come again. (I know the feeling.)

So well how does it handle? Seamlessly. It gives you gorgeous pictures. With an ISO up to 1600, youíll be ready for any lighting situation and fast action.

The Advanced Shake Reduction system minimizes shakiness and stabilizes performance.

You can even edit your images right in the camera. With built-in editing capabilities, the L77 helps you to trim, resize, or add effects to your photos and video clips while on location, without waiting to get back to your computer. MSRP $399.99.
