Samsung ST100 Review

 

Samsung's ST100 is a great ultra-compact with various user-friendly options as well as good image quality and several unique features. The Dual View functionality is a great feature, and worth the investment. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Well built and stylish body ; Produces pleasing 14-megapixel photos ; Acceptable noise levels up to ISO 800 ; Cool Motion Recognition options in record and playback modes ; Awesome 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD ; Larger Dual View screen is much easier to...

Touchscreen only responds to the flesh of your finger tips; so, those with long nails might have a more difficult time operating the camera ; Lens starts at 35mm (equivalent), which might cause some headaches when framing indoors ; Uses microSD/SDHC...

Samsung ST100 and ST600 cameras with dual-view screens

 

If there was an option on my budget cards for must-have gizmos then I'd totally go in for these awesome DualView cameras from Samsung. We have the ST100 and ST600 cameras that aren't something you'd not do a double take on. They both come with 1.8 inch...

Samsung ST100 review

 

Samsung was the first, and thus far is the only, digital camera manufacturer to introduce a LCD screen at the front as well as the back. Following on from last year's ST500, which prompted that “why hasn't anyone else thought of this before?” reaction,...

Quick and responsive operation and touch screen, high headline resolution at 14.2MP, small, portable and user friendly, dual screens occasionally useful, internally folded optical zoom offers 35-175mm reach

Lack of grip results in camera shake, priced at a premium for its class, image quality variable

An undemanding camera for undemanding users who will be seduced by the fact that the ST100 offers a screen at the front as well as the back; while that undeniably has its occasional uses be prepared to pay extra for the privilege

Samsung ST100 review

 

The Samsung ST100's dual screens have their uses but you'll have to pay extra to get them, and, discounting those, it's a fairly standard point-and-shoot camera. It's fun but it should be cheaper.

Intuitive operation ; Dual LCD screens ; Internally stacked 5x optical zoom

Lack of a handgrip results in camera shake and blurred shots ; You pay a premium for the dual screens

The Samsung ST100's dual screens are a relative novelty, but they have their practical uses too, particularly when it comes to taking self-portraits or keeping children's attention while you try to take their picture. But strip away the fancy screens...

Samsung ST100 Digital Camera

 

The Samsung ST100 Digital Camera is small enough to fit into almost any pocket but it also has one of the largest TFT screens around. It is totally touchscreen in operation so those who have been brought up on touch will certainly enjoy using this camera.

I found the Samsung ST100 at a best price of £224.67 from the first link below

Samsung ST100 review

 

The Samsung ST100, with screens on both the front and the rear of the camera, is put to the test by ePHOTOzine member Adrian Wilson.

Front screen for self portraits; Huge array of on-board effects; Large intuitive screen; Can change shooting mode by moving the camera – really fast; Decent noise levels up to ISO800

Tracking Autofocus is very slow to lock on to a subject
