Samsung ST96 review
The Samsung Style camera series, which includes the Samsung ST96, is known for its compact dimensions, its stylish character and a colorful selection. The latter is not exactly true for the Samsung ST96, as this camera is only available in black, but the camera is compact and stylish. Additionally, the Samsung ST96 is equipped with the newest multimedia technologies; for example, think of the Dual Capture function, which allows you to shoot photos while shooting Full HD video. After that, you can share the images with your friends.
Samsung ST96 camera review
The BSI CMOS-sensor is twice as sensitive as conventional CMOS-sensors, which allows you to shoot fun photos with the Samsung ST96, even in low light. A lot of noise can still be detected in the higher ISO values, and the Samsung ST96 sometimes has trouble focussing. You must keep in mind that the Samsung ST96 is a simple compact camera that costs about £180. For this price, the camera takes fun snapshots, the colors look natural and the photos are well lit. Photos and videos can easily be reviewed on the Samsung ST96’s 2.7" color display.
Samsung ST96 review - Photo & Video
One of the Samsung ST96’s unique functions is taking high-speed shots, at a mere 10 frames per second. With this function, you can capture action shots at an incredible speed. Videos can also be shot in high speed, and then played back in slow motion, in order to see every detail. The Samsung ST96 is also equipped with the Creative Movie Maker in order to make original slide shows by combining photos and video. The slide show can be further personalized by adding a soundtrack in the background.
