Samsung ST500 and ST550: Screens front for maximum lolz
It's not often a gadget comes along that makes us actually lol, but the Samsung ST500 and ST550 -- with their MySpace-friendly self-portrait touchscreens -- made us rofl
We micro-site, which hinted at webcam-style self-portraits. As well as the usual live screen on the back, the cameras feature a small touchscreen at the front that displays shooting information and allows you to compose pictures of yourself and your mates, and snap yourself by simply tapping the screen. Perfect for those MySpace/Bebo/Facebook pouty self-portraits. Lol, etc.a couple of weeks ago on the company's 'Tap and Take' teaser
The cameras also give phone-style haptic feedback, vibrating slightly when you tap a function.
Both cameras pack 12.2-megapixel resolution and decent-sized 4.6x optical zoom. They both shoot 720p high-definition video. The main difference between them is that the ST500 has a 76mm (3-inch) touchscreen on the back, and the ST550 sports a whopping 89mm (3.5-inch) display.
Prices have yet to be revealed, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye on these dafter-than-a-drunk squirrel cameras. We're off to work on our MySpace pout. Lmao, or something.
