Samsung ST6500 review


The Samsung ST6500 has a touch-screen, stylish design and friendly interface. So what's the catch?

Good Build quality ; Interesting style ; Produces nice colours ; Pictures are shar ; Metering works well even in direct light

Bulky surround to the screen makes the camera look lower quality ; Home button has no order to the modes ; While noise comes in retty early, it's tolerable until high ISO settings

For a digital compact camera at this price point, the ST6500 performs really well. The styling won't be to everyone's taste, but a lot of thought has gone into it.

Samsung ST6500 review


Although it struggles to differentiate itself from other Samsung models, such as the ST95, the ST6500 is a worthy touchscreen compact camera. It offers generally good picture quality and plenty of tools to play with too.

Slim design ; HDMI output ; Plenty of filters and settings to experiment with ; Simple touchscreen controls

Mono sound ; Nasty zoom control ; Performance can be unpredictable

It's hard to tell the ST6500 apart from many of its Samsung siblings, but it's slim, offers plenty of useful modes and effects, and produces good results most of the time. It's a worthy snapper.

Samsung ST6500 Review


With a feature list that wouldn't look out of place on a camera ?100 more expensive, the Samsung ST6500 certainly has the good on paper. Can the Samsung ST6500 impress in our in-depth test?

Well priced for the features, some decent image quality

Overly-aggressive post production, poor LCD touch screen

Over reaching seems to be the Samsung ST6500's major problem, as the huge resolution needs to be processed and touch screen is poor.
