Summary: Are you in the market for an inexpensive yet at the same time reasonably built pocket snapper, which delivers fuss free results at an inexpensive price point? Then the 14.5 megapixel Samsung ST96 is one of the more reliable exponents of the ‘cheap doesn’t have to mean cr*p’ genre.
Excerpt: The ST96 has a 14.5 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, which Samsung claim will work perfectly in low-light situations as BSI sensors are twice as sensitive as conventional CMOS sensors. There is also a 5x optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 26 - 130mm.
Pros: Panoramics taken using sweeping method, Interesting range of filters, Full 1080p HD video recording, Images can be taken during video recording, Impressive high-speed shooting, Excellent colour reproduction, Very small body
Cons: Flash takes ages to charge, Current price is high
