Samsung Unveils New Flagship Compacts ST600, ST100

Samsung ST600 Digital Camera

Two new DualView compact cameras from Samsung: the ST600, pictured above, and the ST100. Both cameras feature dual screens, 1.8-inch at front, 3.5-inch at the back, 14.2 megapixels and 5x optical zoom; the difference is in the zoom range – the ST600 goes from 27-135mm equivalent, while the ST100 zooms from 35mm wide angle to 175mm tele.

The ST600 and ST100 are now the flagship models of the company.

Samsung said the DualView ST600 and ST100 come equipped with high-quality Schneider KREUZNACH lenses which are supported by Optical and Digital Image Stabilization to help consumers produce blur-free images. The ST600 combines a powerful 27mm wide-angle focal length with a 5x optical zoom, while the ST100 is the first Samsung DualView digital camera to feature an internal, 5x optical zoom, which keeps the design optimally chic (35mm focal-length).

The new cameras are listed at $330 for the ST600 and $350 for the ST100.
