Samsung is getting ready to launch two new cameras, the ST5000 and ST5500.  Both cameras are 14.2 megapixel, feature a 7.2x optical zoom, and come in a choice of black or orange.  The ST5000 has a 3.5 inch LCD touch screen while the ST5500 has a 3.7 inch AMOLED touch screen.  Both cameras can record footage at 30 frames per second in 720p in the H.264 format.  To show off your captured video, just connect either camera to your HDTV through the included HDMI port.  The big selling point of the ST5500 is the ability to upload or email pictures with its built in wireless module.  Now if you cannot get to your computer, just use the camera to share the pictures with anyone you like.

The cameras are set to launch in South Korea soon with Great Britain following next month.  The prices in Great Britain are £279.99 for the ST5000 and £349.99 for the ST5500.  No word on a launch in the U.S. has been announced at this time.
