Samsung ST500, ST550 Cameras Boast Front-and-Back LCDs

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, that’s why!

The front LCD is not so obvious; it’s only 1.5-inch across. With a front LCD, users can take accurate portraits using the front image as a guide – whether it’s a group shot with friends or a snap of yourself on holiday. You don’t even need to press the shutter button – just a big smile will trigger the cameras to take the picture. That’s what Smile Technology does with cameras today.

On the backside, the Samsung said the ST550 features the world’s highest resolution 3.5” wide touch screen LCD, almost four times the size of many other cameras, complete with haptic feedback for ease of use.
