samsung 2view

it is really difficult to get self portrait with digital camera and the screen is available only at the rear of the camera, most often we must repeat again and again. samsung, ever the innovator, has announced a new compact camera range that has two (yes two!) lcd screens.

the st550 and st500 compact cameras have a 'hidden' second 1.5-inch lcd on the front of the camera, so your group of mates can yell 'left a bit, right a bit' at you when you try and take a picture.

it will also be good for all those couples who for some reason are slightly uncomfortable asking strangers to take photos of them while embracing passionately.

the other lcd is a 3.5-inch wide touchscreen, which reportedly packs crystal-clear resolution.

the cameras both have a 12.2 megapixel sensor and a 27mm wide-angle schneider kreuznach lens with 4.6x optical zoom.

another interesting feature the cameras have is something called smart gesture user interface. this means that you can tap the camera or make a hand gesture to get it to perform certain tasks.

video recording

as you would expect, the st550 and st500 also features face recognition, image stabilization and 720p video recording.

the ST500 is available in silver, red and blue colours and the sT550 is available in black, gold, orange and purple colours.

both cameras has already been in malaysia market since 8 september 2009. for more information, click on samsung st550.

now i wonder of who wanna present me this digital camera as a raya gift? *glurp*.
