Samsung ST5500 Digital Camera

 

The last year has seen tremendous growth in Samsung's digital photo camera department. Up until early 2009 I wasn't even overly aware that Samsung made very many camera models, let alone could I easily find them on store shelves. Now, partway through...

Compact size ; 7x zoom is more than most compact cameras in this range ; WiFi and Bluetooth options are very useful ; The accelerometer-aided touch screen interface was neat and seemed promising for speed of use ; HD 720p video recording in your pocket

Use of MicroSD storage instead of the more common SD ; I was neutral on the noise reduction performance in some settings

For around

Samsung ST5500 review

 

The Samsung ST5500 has a long 7x optical zoom and records 720p HD video and we did not have much complaints on the performance part as a compact point-and-shoot camera. However, its price tag is rather high and it has average battery life.

The Samsung ST5500 is a good performer as a camera and it comes with a lot of innovative and useful features. Our only complaints are the relatively high price tag of £299 inc VAT, and the non-wide angle 31mm lens.

Want to upload those captured moments to Facebook or your videos to YouTube in a jiffy? Give this Wi-Fi enabled camera a try.

Very good color reproduction ; Good details and sharpness ; Large AMOLED touchscreen and simple UI ; Long 7x zoom ; Good connectivity options

The lens 31mm at its widest setting is sub par ; Poor screen visibility outdoors ; Fairly good low-light performance

Samsung ST5500

 

This is a small solid and good quality digital camera that can also take excellent quality video. It has good optical zoom at 7x and can take 14MP still images, perhaps best of all it is almost totally touchscreen for ease of use.

Doing my Internet searches found the Samsung ST5500 at a best price of £239.80 from the link below

Samsung ST5500 review

 

Samsung's 14.2MP compact features a 7x optical zoom and 3.7in AMOLED touchscreen, but does it deliver?

Sleek design, sturdy build quality

AMOLED screen is disappointing, overprocessing on images

Samsung ST5500

 

Review When it comes to technology, Samsung steers its own course. First off, the ST5500 uses a 3.7in AMOLED screen and has an abundance of technology on-board including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and AllSave – part of the DLNA wireless content sharing standard.

A touchscreen camera crammed with connectivity features and which uses OLED screen technology. Touch operation functions have been well designed - although gestures are a little slow. A tad pricey, so you'll need to shop around for this one. ®
