[CES 2012] Samsung’s Latest ST Range Compact Cameras offer Style and Power
Samsung Electronics today announced the launch of its latest ST range compact cameras: the 16.1 Megapixel ST88, ST77 and ST66. Beautifully-styled yet powerful, the range boasts sleek, modern designs that deliver flawless images, whilst a host of fun features help inject maximum creativity into everyday shots.
The elegant new brushed-metal designs of the ST88, ST77 and ST66 give the range a classic, premium look that conveys a refined sense of style. All ST devices are compact enough to fit into any pocket and be taken anywhere to capture spontaneous moments, whether at the club, the beach or just spending time with friends. Each model is available in a range of vibrant and on-trend colors to suit every personality – from mock black, white and plum available on the ST88 to the five different color versions of the ST77 and ST66.
Aided by the optical image stabilization available on the ST88 and ST77, clear and steady images can now be achieved by any photographer, anywhere – regardless of experience. Even when the light begins to dim, there is no reason to slow down. The F2.5 25mm wide angle bright lens available on all of the models is ideal for low-light shooting, thanks to its superior ability to capture light and therefore clear shots in the dark. The 5x optical zoom on each model, meanwhile ensures that detail isn’t lost when deciding to take a closer look. All captured on the 16 Megapixel CCD sensors, the ST range means that brilliantly clear images can be taken anywhere, and in style.
The ST range also includes features that mean it can immortalize every inch and every angle required, making spontaneous video and shots better than ever. Both the ST77 and ST66 include 720p HD Movie Recording at 30fps, so users can capture a priceless scene in quality that they will be proud to share later with friends and family. On the ST88, those moments can be enjoyed instantly and crystal-clear, through the 3.0” hVGA LCD screen.
Live Panorama to get everyone in the shot!
Live Panorama, featured on each of the new ST models, allows you to capture even more of the action, facilitating wide panoramic shots which don’t miss any of the detail, from sprawling mountain peaks through to large groups of friends. The function allows the easy capture of large scenes by simply holding down the shutter button and sweeping the camera across the scene. Users can even preview the whole scene they’ve just captured via the LCD screen.
Smart Auto for the best possible picture
Smart Auto 2.0, available on all the new models in the ST series, identifies and automatically selects the most appropriate of its scene modes to provide you with the best possible result every time. From a fireworks display to a dimly-lit party, scene detection technology identifies the shooting conditions and automatically tailors the settings to help achieve standout results.
Fun features to make your world come to life
Want to turn a portrait into an old film still, or put a friend’s face on a billboard? With the Magic Frame feature, it’s easy to create clever, poster-like images by selecting one of the built-in background templates, such as Wall Art, Full Moon, Magazine or Holiday. Point the camera at your subject, align it within the on-screen template and capture the fun.
For when one picture just isn’t enough, the Picture in Picture feature lets you insert one image within another — take one background shot, select the area to erase and then frame up your second shot in the space left behind. This can be anything from a friend’s face appearing in the middle of a plate to inserting your own profile into Mount Rushmore!
Finally, you can also bend, stretch, and warp your friends and family for big laughs — with the Funny Face feature simply press the 5-direction key to enlarge heads or noses, or create hilarious distortions. And when you move the camera, Face Tracking preserves the funny looks just the way you want them.
