Samsung unveils Digital Compact Cameras with Dual LCD Screens

Posted: September 8, 2009 in Tech

Samsung Electronics Phils Corp., today announced the ST550 and ST500, innovative compact digital cameras which feature Dual LCD screens. With one LCD on the front of the camera, and a second one on the back of the camera, Samsung now gives consumers the ability to truly step out from behind the camera and put themselves in the picture.

Delivering an unrivalled user experience, the 1.5” LCD located on the front of the camera allows consumers to take first-rate photos whether they are behind the camera or in front of it.

Samsung’s new ST550 also features a 3.5” wide touch-screen back LCD. At 1,152K resolution, the ST550’s LCD delivers almost four times more resolution than traditional cameras and also comes complete with haptic vibration feedback for ease of use. A 12.2 mega-pixel CCD and 27mm wide-angle Schneider-KREUZNACH lens with 4.6x optical zoom gives a wider shooting range from a shorter distance producing clear, clean images with balanced resolution from the center of the image to the edges.

Alongside professional-grade photos, the ST550 and ST500 record 720p HD video at 30 frames-per-second in H.264 format, providing twice as much recording capacity as MPEG4 format, and four times more than using MJPEG format, all in the palm of your hand. HDMI connectivity means that your HD videos can be enjoyed on any HDTV or HD Monitor.
