Samsung revealed an AMOLED and WiFi-capabled point-and-shoot camera during CES this year (Samsung ST5500). Though I still have not tried that model, we had a chance to use its little brother, the Samsung ST5000.

The Samsung ST5000 skipped the AMOLED screen and the WiFi capabilities altogether of the ST5500 so it can be offered at a much lower price (quick survey around puts the store price at about Php19,990). At the back is a 3.5″ touchscreen LCD while the lens can do 7x optical zoom with a CCD size of 1/2.3″.

The ST5000 has a pretty solid and fairly compact body (this unit has a matte black finish) made of metal and some plastic although feels a bit heavy for its size.

Took a few shots but so far, I’m not very impressed (the shots are a bit grainy which is probably due to the low light during that gloomy afternoon). Will have to take several more to see if it improves a bit better.

The 720p video recording looks good though and the footages seemed smooth and clear (as shown in the YouTube clip above). The camera also uses the smaller microSD card which are a little more expensive than its SD card counterpart.

Will be taking more sample shots and sharing them here soon though it would have been nicer if we also get our hands on that ST5500 with built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and AMOLED display.

If you wish to have clean images use lower ISO, 80, 100 when light is enough for your subject. You cannot judge the camera to be ugly if it produce the image against what you like. If that is the case adjust the setting that fits to your standard.

i don’t see the price on this review. I would rather go for Samsung PL101 with dual screen.

14.2 megapixels produced those photos? It’s off to a bad impression.
