The two other 12.2-megapixel compact cameras announced today by Samsung were the ST550 and ST500, boasting front-and-back LCD screens. Why the dual screens? For self-portraits, thatâ€™s why!
The front LCD is not so obvious; itâ€™s only 1.5-inch across. With a front LCD, users can take accurate portraits using the front image as a guide â€“ whether itâ€™s a group shot with friends or a snap of yourself on holiday. You donâ€™t even need to press the shutter button â€“ just a big smile will trigger the cameras to take the picture. Thatâ€™s what Smile Technology does with cameras today.
On the backside, the Samsung said the ST550 features the worldâ€™s highest resolution 3.5â€ wide touch screen LCD, almost four times the size of many other cameras, complete with haptic feedback for ease of use.
