Excerpt: Well, it's not supposed to work like this. High-end, feature-packed cameras are usually, frankly, a mess: flaky, oddball features, a Frankenstein interface of patchwork hideousness, an image quality that, ultimately, feels like an afterthought… But the Samsung ST1000 is different.
Excerpt: The Samsung ST1000 has a wealth of features many of which are similar to many other digital cameras available today. It does, however, have a few tricks up its sleeve that are likely to become more and more popular on compact digital cameras in the next few years. GPS location, wireless connectivity and built-in Facebook uploads are just three features to set the ST1000 apart.
Pros: Built-in Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth, picture quality, touchscreen
Cons: Slow focusing, menu system a bit more complex than it needs to be
Summary: The Samsung ST1000 is what you get when you combine a super-slim camera with the latest wireless-connectivity and touchscreen technology. Samsung's experience in mobile-phone design surely plays a part here.
Pros: Excellent handling and design, High-resolution touchscreen interface, Wireless tech works brilliantly
Cons: Needs a wideangle zoom, Images have an over-processed look
