Ergonomic Design, 16MP in Samsung ST6500 Camera

Those looking for a powerful compact digital camera with ergonomic styling may find the Samsung ST6500 fits the bill. With a 16 megapixel CCD, 720p HD video recording and 5x optical zoom (26-130mm), the ST6500 holds its own. What really sets this point-and-shoot apart from the rest is unconventional design.

A sleek curve highlights the lens and a seven degree angle in the body shape makes the ST6500 comfortable to hold and use. The back of the camera is almost entirely filled by a 3 inch Smart Touch LCD.

Besides the Smart Touch interface, the ST6500 features optical and digital image stabilization, smart auto focus, Magic Frame capability, Smart Filter 2.0 and the Perfect Portrait System. This unit is designed to take decent photos in low light situations without blurry noise that commonly affects lower end compact digital cameras.

Samsung also announced other models in the same family that will be available with different features at varying price points, including the ST95, ST90, ST65 and ST30. Two of these models were introduced at CES 2011 earlier this month.

Samsung ships the ST6500 digital camera in March for $229.
