Thanks for pointing out those mistakes Darren, I've updated our specs and they'll be on the site corrected tomorrow. We often have trouble getting the full/accurate specs when a camera is just announced, and it looks like we should have come back to this one once all the information was available.

This camera does not have RAW and it has a 230,000 pixel resolution LCD screen. I confirmed this with Samsung and have read the Samsung WB700 manual as well.

Information on the WB700 seems a bit sparse at the moment, but other sites such as this one seem to confirm that shoots 720p not 1080p.

are you sure is not full HD ?

Thanks for pointing that out, we'll correct that asap.

Are you sure this camera is fitted with a GPS unit? I can find no evidence elsewhere to support that claim.
