Samsung ST550 compact camera

 

The Samsung ST550 is a compact camera with a difference. Instead of one LCD screen it has two. In addition to the 3.5-inch screen on the rear, it has a front facing 1.5-inch LCD too. The ST500 is a great camera producing excellent results with a useful...

Good image quality, front-facing LCD screen more than just a gimmick, wide-angle lens

Proprietary USB connection

The ST500 is a great camera producing excellent results with a useful wide-angle zoom lens. Add to that the front LCD screen and it's got just about everything you might need. We admit that the initial novelty of the screen on the front does wear off,...

Samsung ST550 review

 

Samsung's latest 12.2MP is the first to pack two displays. But are two LCDs really better than one?

A reasonably decent pocket-sized snapper made more appealing by its two clever screens

Samsung ST550 digital camera - First Look

 

Samsung has launched a new camera with not one but two LCD screens. But do you really need it, or is it yet another gimmick for your digital camera? Pocket-lint was at the launch in New York to have a hands-on play with the latest edition to the...

1.5-inch screen on front, smile mode, touchscreen rear display

Bet all those screens eat the battery

Samsung ST550 review

 

A massive touchscreen, a second screen for self-portraits and HD video make this the ideal camera for parties and posing for Facebook profile shots.

Samsung ST550 review

 

It's squarely aimed at the MySpace/Facebook/Twitter crowd, who tend to create interesting self-portraits for profile pictures. The quality of photos taken with the Samsung ST550 are good enough for use on these sites; it's not a camera that's meant to...

Despite its reasonably good image quality, the Samsung ST550 could still use some refinement. The menu system needs to be more user-friendly and the battery life and charging options need vast improvement. We're also not convinced that the majority of...

Samsung ST550

 

The Samsung ST550 has one extra feature all other compacts lack: a second screen. Yep, the Samsung ST550 has an additional 1.5-inch LCD next to the lens, which means you can frame group shots without needing to set a timer and leave the camera resting...

This is a very novel take on the compact camera. If you love using your camera to record nights out and trips with your mates, before sharing the results on Facebook and Flickr, then this is the camera you have to buy. Samsung ST550 is tagged with...

Samsung ST550 (aka TL225)

 

A case isn’t provided and I would highly recommend you invest in one, as well as a screen cleaning cloth as it quickly attracts fingerprints

Samsung Twin Screen Digital Camera : Samsung ST550 Twin Screen Digital Camera

 

Yes this camera has a TFT at the front and the back. Not as daft as it sounds if you either want to catch a shot with the image taker in or if you are trying to keep the attention of a young child their own image works wonders.

Image quality overall was excellent and the range of movie settings was also good allowing less blurry images on faster moving subjects when you select higher frame rates

Samsung ST550 camera review

 

A perfect compact camera for the pub, club or party.

Dual screens, clear, haptic-equipped main screen

Dinky zoom rocker not ideal for larger fingers
