The Samsung HZ30W comes with plenty of features to help you get the best shot possible. 14 megapixels and a 15x optical zoom help you capture every detail and the large 3.0'' LCD screen makes sure you can take and edit your photos in a snap. The perfect portrait system does all the work for you, to make sure your photos are beautiful. Plus, with digital image stabilization, photos are crystal clear, not blurry.

See deeper, go wider, get closer with the HZ30W
Have it all, literally, with the Samsung HZ30W. It’s the first to combine a 24mm ultra wide angle lens with an up close and personal 15x Super-zoom. With more options and a deeper perspective, you’ll capture more fun out of every moment and relive each detail with artistic depth and perspective, and with absolute ease. And you’ll be able to fit more in frame when objects seem too close. Whether it’s an extended family around an even more extended dining room table or a sprawling landscape, the HZ30W lets you get the most out of life.

When it comes to brightness, it’s brilliant
When we engineered the Samsung HZ30W to be bright, we meant it in both senses of the word. It’s intelligent and luminous, both. It has a 3.0-inch LCD for improved contrast and color reproduction, which allows you to enjoy a wider and clearer image. And its Intelligent LCD brightness automatically detects environmental illumination and adjusts the LCD brightness for optimal image viewing. It does the thinking for you, which makes the HZ30W a smart choice.

Take control. Seize the moment.
When it comes to capturing life’s greatest moments on film, hit-or-miss just isn’t good enough. That’s why Samsung’s Full Manual Control lets you capture those moments you might otherwise miss out on in auto mode. Aperture Priority makes sure your main subject stands out from its surroundings, Sutter Priority captures fast movements, and Manual Mode grants you complete control of the exposure.

HD Movie recording with built-in HDMI
Imagine having HD video recording capabilities in a camera that fits in the palm of your hand. One that delivers impressive 720p HD quality video at 30 frames per second. With the H.264 format that offers recording time 2 times longer than MPEG-4 and 4 times longer than MJPEG video. And this camera lets you get creative - just use one of its many cool effects, such as sketch mode. Then hook it up to any HDTV or HD monitor with an HDMI and you’re ready to share all the HD action.

Shake, rattle or stroll
Even the tiniest shake can ruin your shot. Dual Image Stabilization solves that. Samsung has combined the revolutionary technology of their ultimate Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) mechanism with the advanced algorithms of Digital Image Stabilization (DIS). Giving you sharp images no matter the condition. Whether it’s low light, zooming or just a case of plain old shaky hands, your photos come out sharp and clear. So let your Samsung camera shake things up. In a good way.

Cool effects make every photo unique
Samsung’s Smart Filter, lens effect, delivers an artistic edge to your still shots and videos. The Miniature filter gives your subjects a miniaturized look, the Vignetting filter delivers a strikingly strong compositional contrast, and our Fish-eye filter gives your video that cool distorted feel. So get creative and get Samsung.

The simple way to go pro
Turn any moment into a perfect memory. And a professional-looking photo. Whether it’s a few friends from last night’s party or the moon reflecting off the lake, Smart Auto 2.0 (Still & Movie) instantly analyzes key elements of your composition then automatically adjusts to capture the perfect shot with multitude of different photo modes and movie modes. And since life isn’t a still life, the camera’s object tracking feature captures those subjects that just don’t, or won’t, stand still.

Comments about Samsung Samsung HZ30 Digital Camera (Black):

The last Nikon had all controls on the touch screen menu. The screen was nearly invisible in sunlight, and was a royal pain to use. Cannon cameras twice lasted less than 2 years, and just quit working!
I am very impressed with he quality of the photographs. Wish it had a view finder! I have used it in all modes, and find the menu easy to use- however the owner's "manual" does not specify that it one has to turn the disc to "P" before you can make adjustments. In addition the time date set showed wrong times on the downloads.
I would definitely buy another Samsung Camera, if this lasts a long time, and repairs are possible.

Comments about Samsung Samsung HZ30 Digital Camera (Black):

The Samsung HZ30W is an amazing little camera. I went to a store with my SD card and put it into three cameras. The Nikon S8000, the Panasonic TZ6and this camera. I sort of figured a camera is a camera and the stills shots would bepretty much equal what would make or break it would be the video. So I shot stills and video on my SD card. I bought my 1GB SD from my Nikon Coolpix 7900, the S8000just added its pictures and video to the list. The Panasonic added it's stills in and complained the card was not formatted by this camera. So the videos were all about 1 second long. The HZ30W added its pictures and video and had no complaints. The TZ6 shoots video in M-Jpeg mode and is very sharp. he Nikon and Samsung both shot in H.264 mode and were very comparable. The TZ6 was [$] more than the HZ30W, and the S800 was [$] more than the HZ30W. After seeing the popup S8000 flash and wondering why they added moving parts for no good reason and also seeing the rubber plug covers, I was very impressed with the metal hinged door and metal knobs on the Samsung. The other two had burst mode, the Samsung did not. But after looking at the videos and stills I didn't think they justified the extra dollars. I was very impressed by the 15x zoom on the HZ30W. The charger adapter come with a short about a 20 inch cord for USB to samsung power. So the battery is changed IN the camera. So buy an extra charger and batteries.
