Samsung’s answer is to do away with it altogether. Its PL90 includes a swing-out USB connector so you can plug it directly into a computer.
Specs-wise the PL90 captures 12.2 megapixel images and 640×480 video at up to 30 fps. It has a 4x optical zoom lens, plus the usual range of auto and “smart” features we’ve come to expect in point-and-shoots.
The Perfect Portrait System combines a number of features to optimize people pictures, including face and smile detection, blink detection and red eye removal. There’s a self-portrait mode and something called Beauty Shot that softens blemishes.
The PL90 will be available in September and will sell for around $150
