Samsung intends to break new ground with their ST6500 digital camera, where it will sport a design which is not only pleasing to the eyes, but ergonomic to hold as well. Sure, you won’t be able to get carpal tunnel syndrome from using a digital camera, but anything that fits into the palm of your hand in an easier fashion or manner is definitely worth looking at, don’t you think so?
The ST6500 takes an unconventional approach as it has an angled design, where the camera’s body is curved around the lens and angled at 7 degrees to make for a more ergonomic fit in the hand. This is certainly innovative thinking, taking a good step away from the conventionally designed models that currently flood the market. In essence, the overall design helps ensure that creative images are perfectly captured, and you are guaranteed to make a style statement at any social event whenever you pull this puppy out from your bag.
Samsung also makes sure that you aren’t left behind in the megapixel race, with the ST6500 sporting a high-quality 16-megapixel sensor which is touted to guarantee crisp and clear images. Of course, megapixels aren’t everything as consumers have found out, so the ability to capture images under difficult and challenging conditions are also important.
Ever tried to shoot photos in low light conditions? You’ll know what we’re talking about, so hopefully the Samsung ST6500 is capable of doing so without too much noise. Other hardware specifications include a powerful 5x zoom lens, a new Smart Touch 3.0 User Interface, a 3.0” multi-purpose LCD touchscreen display, intelligent Smart Auto feature, HD video recording, Magic Frame capability, and advanced Smart Filter 2.0 among others.
You won’t be able to get it anytime soon though, as the Samsung ST6500 will only hit the markets this coming March for $229 a pop. Ah well, at least that gives you over a month to save up for this.
