Samsung ST5000 Reviews

Pinoytechblog reviews the Samsung ST5000 and writes;
“I would probably suggest to keep the ISO to 400 and below so as not to sacrifice the picture quality. Other than that, the camera produces good picture results and meets the requirements for a good point-and-shoot.”

Steves-digicams reviews the Samsung ST5000 and writes;
“Image quality impressed as much as it could. Outdoors the camera did well capturing great color and sharp detail,… Indoors the camera seemed to perform good as well. The flash (when used) threw good light that was never to harsh in the foreground and to weak on the background. The image stabilization system kept the focus sharp even in low-light, and overall whether indoors or out we seemed to capture pleasing results.”

Trustedreviews reviews the Samsung ST5000 and writes;
“Picture quality is also good, although there are a couple of caveats. Like most of Samsung’s premium models the ST5000 has a Schneider-Kreuznach branded lens, and the centre sharpness is suitably impressive. However it also has the usual digital distortion correction, and this does unfortunately result in some corner blurring. There’s no trace of chromatic aberration though.”

Digitalversus reviews the Samsung ST5000 and writes;
“…the lens doesn’t distort the picture too much and the ST5000 generally handles exposure well. The white balance works well outdoors, but photos look too warm (too red/orange) under artificial light e.g. Tungsten lights.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Samsung ST5000 Features

Designed with the modern user in mind, the TL240 fits your lifestyle and the palm of your hand. And it comes packed with enough innovative features and performance perks to satisfy all of your compact camera needs. Factor in its 14.2 megapixel quality and its 7x optical zoom power Schneider KREUZNACH lens and 19.6mm thick design, and you’re secure in the knowledge that it can capture all the moments that life throws your way. And with a vivid 3.5” TFT Touch LCD, preserving any moment in a photograph or HD video is as easy as it is brilliant. With the TL240, any day can turn into a special memory.

Iconic looks.
Innovative performance.

The TL240’s design is the sum of amazingly useful yet stunningly stylish innovations that make it stand out from the crowd. Innovations like the Slanted Shutter, designed to comfortably fit your finger, or the handsome oversized lens that lets you aim in style. The TL240’s body is accented by fluid, hydro-formed lines. And its self-standing Posture 7° physique makes taking those tricky self-portraits a snap.

When it comes to brightness, it’s brilliant.
When you’re looking at brilliant 1,152K high-resolution images through a 3.5” TFT Touch LCD, you know your photos are going to be something special. Its 14.2 megapixels of robust clarity deliver details you’d never thought you’d be able to capture. And with its 7x optical zoom power Schneider KREUZNACH lens and 19.6mm thick design, which is impressively thin when you consider the power it packs, your shot-taking skills are immediately and undeniably enhanced. It was engineered to help you get more out of life.

HD movies in the palm of your hand
Imagine having HD video recording capabilities in a camera that fits in the palm of your hand. One that delivers impressive 720p HD quality video at 30 frames per second. With the H.264 format that offers recording time 2 times longer than MPEG-4 and 4 times longer than MJPEG video. And this camera lets you get creative – just use one of its many cool effects, such as sketch mode. Then hook it up to any HDTV or HD monitor with an HDMI and you’re ready to share all the HD action.

Cool effects make every photo unique
Samsung’s Smart Filter, lens effect, delivers an artistic edge to your still shots and videos. The Miniature filter gives your subjects a miniaturized look, the Vignetting filter delivers a strikingly strong compositional contrast, and our Fish-eye filter gives your video that cool distorted feel. So get creative and get Samsung.

The simple way to go pro
Turn any moment into a perfect memory. And a professional- looking photo. Whether it’s a few friends from last night’s party or the moon reflecting off the lake, Smart Auto 2.0 (Still & Movie) instantly analyzes key elements of your composition then automatically adjusts to capture the perfect shot with multitude of different photo modes and movie modes. And since life isn’t a still life, the camera’s object tracking feature captures those subjects that just don’t, or won’t, stand still.

Shake, rattle or stroll
Even the tiniest shake can ruin your shot. Dual Image Stabilization solves that. Samsung has combined the revolutionary technology of their ultimate Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) mechanism with the advanced algorithms of Digital Image Stabilization (DIS). Giving you sharp images no matter the condition. Whether it’s low light, zooming or just a case of plain old shaky hands, your photos come out sharp and clear. So let your Samsung camera shake things up. In a good way.

Tilt it, gesture with it, and control it!
The Smart Gesture UI makes managing your photos a very moving experience. Its built-in acceleration sensor turns your gestures into commands. Just tilt it to one side or the other to scroll through your photos — without even pressing a button! Don’t like how a photo came out? Just draw an “X” on the screen or rotate it and – poof! – it’s deleted. Easily change modes and create slideshows simply and button-free.

Smart Face Recognition
Built with Samsung’s innovative Smart Face Recognition technology, the TL240 automatically adjusts the focus and exposure on up to 20 faces. Or, let the camera select the most photographed faces in your photo album to focus on. Smart Face Recognition also lets you quickly search for people in your album without having to go through every single photo.

Smart Album
Smart Album automatically organizes your photos by type, date, color, week, and face so that you can find that one particular shot amongst 2,000. It does the looking for you. In fact, it can even do a face search!
