Samsung has welcomed a duo of new compact cameras to its fold, with the announcement of the high-end EX1 and HD-capturing WB2000.

The 10 megapixel EX1 has taken over as the company's flagship digital camera, with a large sensor allowing sensitivity up to ISO 3200 and a 24mm ultra-wide angle F1.8 lens offering a wider range of aperture steps than your regular compact.

It also packs a 3-inch, swiveling AMOLED screen for improved viewing and less power consumption, 3x optical zoom, and RAW support for photographers wanting to take their photos the higher-end format.

Photographers will also be able to take photos using shutter priority, aperture priority and full manual shooting modes - or for quick snaps, rely on Samsung's Auto mode for selecting settings based on your surroundings.

Announced alongside the EX1 was the WB2000, also a compact capable of full 1080p HD video recording and a video recording speed of up to a whopping 1,000fps.

Users won't even have to stop recording if they fancy taking some stills, as the WB2000 will allow you to take 10 megapixel stills while shooting video.

The WB2000 also brings a 24mm ultra-wide angle lens to the table with 5x optical zoom, 3-inch AMOLED screen, RAW support and both auto and manual controls.

The EX1 has been dated for April, while we've been told a much more vague timescale of "Spring" for the WB2000.
