Samsung ST50 12.2MP Ultra Slim Digital Camera Review

 

With your purchase of the Samsung ST50 come these items…

Image detail is high between ISO 80 to ISO 400; Stylish looking digital camera; Can be placed in your pocket; Smart Auto works very well; Variety of photo selector styles available such as negative, retro, calm, etc; Fast startup; Included travel USB...

ISO 800 and above is noisy and looks washed out in detail; No included camera case; No manual function to change aperture and shutter speed; White balance a little on the cool side; Videos look average and is a little dark; Proprietary cables; Audio...

The Samsung ST50 digital camera is not a bad camera. I do not mind recommending it to people but you have to realize what it does well and what it lacks to be able to determine if this camera is for you.

Samsung ST50 Digital Camera Review

 

The Samsung ST50 is 12.2 megapixel so it takes high resolution images. As wide as it scope can go when it comes to taking photos of lush landscapes and surroundings, it is also quite accurate when taking close-up shots or macro photography

Samsung ST50 Ultra Slim Digital Camera Review

 

In the case of point and shoot cameras, does going ultra slim harm the performance and quality of a digital camera? We will take a look at Samsung's Ultra Slim ST50 digital camera to see how well it can capture the world around you in such a small...

Digital Image Stabilization ; 12.2 Megapixel Resolution ; Ultra-slim design

Proprietary USB Cable ; Really slow playback of photos

Share: Final Thoughts [ad#review987-top]I have had the chance to play around with the Samsung ST50 camera for a couple of weeks and, in my opinion, it performs pretty well for a small, ultra-thin, compact digital camera. You can check out some of the...

Samsung ST50

 

Attractive, well-built, crisp LCD, easy to operate

Mediocre picture quality, smart picture mode sometimes chooses questionable settings

The Samsung ST50 is a very good looking digital camera and the pictures it takes are clean, but photos are sometimes soft when taken at higher zoom levels, and snaps are under-saturated.

Samsung ST50 digital camera

 

The Samsung ST50 has a slick brushed aluminium front and a good solid feel with neat precise lines. It is perfectly pocketable, measuring 94.2 x 55.7 x 16.6mm; small, but perfectly formed, you could say. It features a 3x zoom lens, 35-105mm (35mm...

Battery charging in-camera, Frame Guide mode, easy to use, good build quality

Smart mode not brilliant, on HD video capture

So it is something of a mixed bag. The single connection, while giving you a neat in-camera charging option, does mean that you need bespoke cables to use the camera wherever you go. The lack of HD video is an obvious set back for those with a large...

Samsung ST50 review

 

Samsung's ST50 fits a lot of megapixels into not a lot of space

Attractive, solid build ; Excellent images ; Good ease of use

Buttons are a little fiddly

This is a great camera, and the only shortcoming are down to its tiny size

Samsung ST50

 

If you're in it for good looks, this one, the ST50 is a real looker! As I shall point out further down, the price you pay for the good looks and sexy body is in the form of just about average performance. This slick little camera has a petite body -...

Conclusion While the Samsung ST50 looks and feels great, and offers a ton of features for such a small critter, it falls short of being a fantastic camera due to low details in almost every shot. It's ISO performance is disheartening, but the night...
