Samsung has given us an impressive little camera in the CL80. The 14.2 megapixel resolution, 7x optical zoom, 31mm wide-angle lens, and 720p HD video are nothing too special these days, but the built-in WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities and the extra-slick 3.7-inch active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) touchscreen are certainly noteworthy. There have been WiFi cameras before (including the Samsung CL65, a similar model that seems to have slipped under the radar), but never in such a good-looking body. For a cheaper model with the same lens and sensor, check out the TL420—aside from the AMOLED screen and WiFi/Bluetooth capability, it's almost identical. For all the flash and flare of the body, it costs way too much for its mediocre photo capabilities. Note: This camera is known as the ST5500 in some countries.
