17 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This Samsung digital camera has an average expert rating of 76 out of 100 based on five expert reviews from sites including PhotographyBlog.com, Ephotozine, Pocket Lint and CNET.co.uk.

Good Screen / Viewfinder

A few customers reckoned that the Samsung ST100 had a good screen. Gadgetspeak.com wrote “Quick and responsive operation and touch screen, high headline resolution at 14.2MP, small, portable”.

Good Size

A few customers who reviewed the Samsung ST100 concluded that it was compact. Expert review site Cnet.co.uk said “The 14.2-megapixel ST100 is the latest entry in Samsung's range of dual-screen compact cameras” in their Samsung ST100 review. Six years ago Steves-Digicams.com wrote “Share Samsung's most compact dualscreen camera to date”.

Easy to Use

One person wrote that the Samsung ST100 was easy to use. Expert review site Ephotozine.com mentioned six years ago “The dual screen is fun to use” in their Samsung ST100 review. One Samsung ST100 reviewer said in their reviews that the Samsung ST100 was easy to use the menus.

Samsung Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Samsung digital cameras and also specifically for Samsung compact cameras and found that in both cases Samsung had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Nice Design

One Samsung ST100 owner wrote in their reviews that this digital camera was good looking. Ephotozine.com mentioned on Ephotozine “The sleek and stylish ST100 is the latest 2View camera from Samsung, these being cameras that have the usual large 3.5 inch screen on the rear.” in their Samsung ST100 review.

Good Quality Lens

One person who purchased the Samsung ST100 said that it had a good zoom. Gadgetspeak.com wrote “User friendly, dual screens occasionally useful, internally folded optical zoom offers 35 175mm” in their review of the Samsung ST100 and gave the product a rating of 80 out of 100.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on digital cameras of this age and spec. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think a cheaper camera such as the Samsung 200F[plb_2071998_price] or you might consider a higher rated camera such as the Nikon 3300[plb_1378452_price] are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Samsung GC100[plb_2600424_price] (4.8") which also has a higher rating.
