Excerpt: With the ever growing digital camera market, the competition between manufacturers has reached to a point where a 10.1 megapixel camera is available for less than Rs. 10,000. And now with 12.2 megapixel cameras hitting the consumer market, the race is just going to get stronger. But Samsung is a step ahead with their newest offering, the ST 550, the camera with the unique feature of a front LCD for Portrait shots.
Conclusion: During playback, these tilt commands shift to multi slideshow, favourite tag and protect tag and also help to shuffle backwards and forwards through images. Simple USB charging allows for minimum fuss: you don’t have to take the battery out of the ST550 and charge it in a separate unit as the cord provided in the standard kit doubles as a power cable either when connected to the computer or to a separate power adapter (also provided) and into a wall socket.
Conclusion: There are plenty of features to get your teeth into with the Samsung ST550. Picture quality is very good too. If you like the features on offer then there should be very little to put you off buying this camera.
Pros: Picture quality - front LCD screen - Hugh Definition movies - recycle bin - LCD screen quality
Cons: Slow shutter lag times - I found it difficult to select options through the LCD screen
Samsung Twin Screen Digital Camera : Samsung ST550 Twin Screen Digital Camera
7 April 2010
Summary: Yes this camera has a TFT at the front and the back. Not as daft as it sounds if you either want to catch a shot with the image taker in or if you are trying to keep the attention of a young child their own image works wonders.
Excerpt: Harley Ogier finds Samsung’s new compact to be less of a gimmick than you might think Samsung brings a major innovation to the market with its latest digital compact offering, the ST550. In addition to a huge high-resolution touchscreen, the ST550 features a secondary display on the front of the camera next to the lens. This is brilliant for framing self-portraits, a feature more useful than ever before in the world of Facebook and MySpace.
Pros: Dual screens, Great image quality, Touch interface
Excerpt: Teenagers are the trendsetters when it comes to using technology. Last time we checked, they’re still using Facebook, but their profiles contain photos of themselves as much as other people. Samsung has spotted this trend and responded with the ST550 – a camera with a front-mounted screen for self-portraits. This screen is mounted behind the smooth plastic front panel. It’s small, dim and hard to see in sunlight, but good enough for framing shots.
Conclusion: Kamerassa on kaksi näyttöä, joista etupuolella olevaa voi käyttää omakuviin ja viihdykkeenä kuvattaville. Etunäyttöä napauttamalla ja hymyilemällä saa itsestään omakuvan. Takanäytön kosketustoimintoja on runsaasti ja sen lisäksi kuvaustilaa ...
Pros: Kosketustoiminnot, Videotallennus, Tarkka näyttö
