Samsung has created yet another fun and easy to use digicam. With competitive features for a 16-megapixel, ultra-compact camera, the ST700 also adds the versatility and fun of a front facing LCD. For $279 USD or less, the ST700 is sure to be a popular...

Weak flash ; Power button is sensitive, and can be accidentally actuated easily ; Uses microSD/SDHC cards, which are VERY easy to lose ; Noise present at even the lowest ISO settings ; ISO 1600 and 3200 show a great deal of noise ; No A/V cables included

Don't Buy This One
