Compact Cameras

Samsung's smallest camera range has been updated with four new compact models, the ST66, ST77, ST88 and ST200F. Part of Samsung's plan is to make everything connected, including your TV, Mobile Phone, Camera, Fridge-Freezer and even your Washing Machine. This has meant that there are now   four new models with Wi-Fi, signified by the F on the end of their name.

ST (Stylish) Range:

ST66 - compact metal body, 5x zoom, 2.7 inch screen
ST77 - compact metal body, 5x zoom, OIS, 2.7 inch screen

Dual View:

- 5x optical zoom, 3 inch screen, 1.5 inch Front Screen, Wi-Fi. This camera was the first to be announced, but unlike the others, this model does not feature a metal body, instead it has to use a plastic body so that you can see the front screen. Despite the plastic body, the finish of the camera is very good and the style and texture give it the look/ of metal.
