Samsung ST30 Digital Camera


by Raziel TRUSTWORTHY I bought this thing last year after I sold one of my MVP cards in Ragnarok to someone I know. I just lost my BenQ camera and I was looking for a good affordable camera that I could use for taking down notes and random picture taking.

Appealing to the traveller and photographer with small hands, does the ST30 produce worthwhile pictures?

Small body ; Metering is good ; Nice build quality ; Picture quality is better than you'd assume

Toy-like ; Poor screen

Samsung ST30 review


If you want a cheap, simple and small digital camera, and you're happy to accept some compromise in terms of features and image quality, the Samsung ST30 is a pretty good option.

Small and light ; Stylish design ; Easy to use

No optical zoom ; Proprietary USB port ; Limited movie capabilities ; Image stabiliser not very effective ; Some colour issues

The Samsung ST30 is super-small and super-cheap. Its image quality is far from super but, then again, it's not bad for the price. Feature-wise, the camera is rather lacking, but it's certainly easy to use and the ST30 isn't bad-looking, either.

Good product. I bought it for my daughter and it has good more than enough features for a 6 year old :) Probably too delicate on little hands. Excellent product overall

Nil so far

Samsung ST30 - green + pouch


I am very happy with this camera, good quality pictures, easy to follow setting up guide and a robust feel, pity about the micro card.

Nicer colour than shown, it is actually a nice gold shade, very easy to use

There should be a micro card supplied with the camera to save buyer having to shop for one
