Samsung ST5000

Gadgets are not just machines – they are our very brains. They think for us, calculate for us, keep memories safe, keep secrets from prying eyes and even speak for us at times. They have made us lazy, and we are unapologetic about it. Even when it comes to digital cameras, we see them more as gadgets that were designed to make photography seem like making a cup of instant coffee. Which is why we need cameras that are quick and do all the thinking for us – they should come with minimum buttons, and they should guess when we need to look at the next picture, right? Many, who think the way as said above, would definitely go for a Samsung ST5000. This is a 14mp and 7x optical zoom camera that comes with touchscreen controls and an in built acceleration sensor which lets the user scroll the pictures without pressing a button.

Design and Functioning

As far as the design of the Samsung ST5000 is concerned, one could just say ‘less is more.’ Its back panel is shorn, yes devoid, of any controls or dials; all it comes with is a huge LCD measuring 3.5inches across. Its shape is simple and the camera exudes minimalistic elegance. This camera is available in colours like Midnight Black, Gun Metal Grey and Soil Red. The Samsung ST5000 offers powerful 7x optical zooms on the high-performance, oversized Schneider KREUZNACH lenses. To help reduce blur, these impressive lenses are paired with Samsung’s Dual Image Stabilization technology, which combines both optical and digital stabilizers to counteract the negative effects of a user’s shaky hand. This camera also houses Samsung’s Smart Gesture touch screen user interface which is complimented by an internal Gravity sensor for added greater ease of use. Smart Gesture is one of the most advanced and accurate touch-screen user interfaces on the market, and it gives users the ability to access and use key features with either a simple tilt or a hand gesture. The Smart Gesture adds a level of fun to the way users interact with and enjoy their content, allowing them to quickly scroll through their photos with a swipe of their finger or by slightly tilting the camera in either direction. This camera contains about 13MB of internal memory and is compatible with MicroSD card.
