 Straight From My Kodak 4MP To This Samsung 12.2MP. Excellent

Top 100 Electronics Reviewer

What a great camera this is indeed, a small front LCD screen & a quite big back LCD screen too.

My Review Of It...

Samsung ST550: Small & compact, fits in those jeans pockets no problem, because it's touch screen too, it's very easy to use it & you basically would move around the screen like for instance an iPhone.

Battery: It comes with a 720MAH battery that can handle loads of recharge's but, they don't last very long when taking photos & trying new settings out. You can actually buy a battery for it that is 1200MAH, takes loads more photos with its extreme power but, does have a shorter life cycle when recharging to the 720MAH.

Carrying Case: There are ones available & you can get a nice leather one that fits snug for this to prevent scratching. If you find a case with a measurement of 60x98x25 mm (2.4"x3.9"x1") "WxHxD" that will fit fine.

Memory Card: I would suggest the SD Micro HC ones, these work fine & really all you need is a 4GB one. Sandisk OR Play.com ones work fine and sell them on here. Not sure about the 8GB ones have not tried them.

Important Things:

.1. To activate the front LCD screen tap it with you finger nail not the thumb.

.2. If you want to use microsoft's windows picture downloader which is on your computer (default) you can turn off the software feature on the setting menu of the camera.

So overall this is an excellent camera with plenty of features & with it's one of a kind front screen it make those pictures of taking of yourself or someone with you a breeze.

i have had the camera for about a week and it is really easy and nice to use, the touch screen i would say it is better then the iphone.
as far as i know im not a teenage girl so i will not be useing the LCD screen on the front that much but it is a very nice idea for people who take a lot of photos of themselfs.
i put some photos on the pc and they are really good very clear

if your looking for a really good camera then BUY

 Great Camera

Replaced a more expensive (at the time) Sony. ST550 so much better.
Takes great pics - anti-shake especially good. Only gets really blurry when you deliberately shake the camera!
Only very minor complaint is that the pics need to be on 'widescreen' setting to use the full LCD screen.
Was considering cheaper cameras - glad I spent a bit more and got this one with dual image stabilisation.
