Dual Image Stabilization for Sharp Images and Video
Take pictures that are clear and blur-free--even in low light or during fast action--thanks to dual image stabilization. This feature combines the mechanical precision and digital technology of both optical and digital image stabilization.

The Samsung ST700 also allows you to record movies in the palm of your hand. With HD Movie, you can capture video in 1,280-by-720-pixel resolution at 30 frames per second.

Smart Auto 2.0 Creates the Perfect Shot
With Smart Auto 2.0, the Samsung ST700 captures the perfect shot by analyzing key composition elements and selecting from 17 different photo and 4 different movie modes.

The Samsung ST700 includes a face/smile/blink-detection feature that detects and adjusts the lighting on up to nine different faces at a time. The camera will automatically shoot the subjects when they laugh or smile, and prohibit the shot from happening if anyone's eyes are closed.

Advanced Effects for High-Quality Photos
The camera's Beauty Shot feature automatically removes dark circles, facial blemishes, and imperfections to create great portraits. It's like having a makeup artist in your camera. A front LCD screen makes it even easier to take great self-portraits.

After shooting an item at an angle, use the camera's Smart Crop feature to alter the image to appear as if it were shot straight on. Simply select four crop points on the image, and it automatically reappears, re-cropped in full frame, from the desired angle.

Product and Warranty Information
The Samsung ST700 is equipped with a 26mm wide-angle Schneider lens, a 5x optical zoom, a 3-inch LCD touch screen, and a 1.8-inch front LCD screen. The camera measures 2.17 by 3.88 by 0.85 inches (H x W x D) and weighs 0.27 pounds without the battery and card.

To use the ST700 with your computer you'll need an Intel 4 3.2 GHz or later or AMD 2.6 GHz or later processor; at least 256 MB ram; a USB port; a CD-ROM drive; and at least 250 MB hard-disk space with a Windows system (110 MB with Mac). The camera is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and 7, and Mac OS X 10.3 or higher.

The Samsung ST700 is backed by a one-year limited warranty on parts and labor.

Customer Reviews

Well, I definitely recommend it... You won't regret it!
Roberto Benejam
The camera's idea of a faster wait time before taking the picture after pressing the shot button is to wait ten seconds instead of fifteen seconds.
Debbie
Easy to use, download, high quality shots and good touch screen make me very happy with the purchase.

i LOVE this camera. it is small, versatile, very easy to use, innovative (the front lcd screen which shows you the live shot, just like the back screen, is a brilliant idea for self portraits and group shots.... just brilliant), and takes simply EXCELLENT amazingly crisp and sharp pictures. my other point and shoot was a sony with a carl zeiss lens -- now you know those are good lenses, but this samsung beats it hands down.

best best feature of this is the front lcd screen which lets you see the picture, just as if you were looking at the back lcd. so so innovative, so smart, and once you use it you wonder why all cameras don't have this amazing useful bit.

picture quality is superb. even on email mode, this picks up details that my sony had never seen and i couldn't believe it. seriously... a sony with a zeiss lens you would think is perfect!... but this is better. very very very happy with this purchase and i simply love this camera. i bought it in time to go to a wedding, and all the guests were awed with the front lcd also saying, oh my gosh i have to get one of those..... !!! and actually for one relative i hadn't seen in a while at the wedding, she was so in love with the cam to take family shots, i bought her one on the spot as a surprise, from amazon too!

my few pet peeves..... 1) this is a great camera, can you at least somehow make it look a little sexier?!!! it looks like any other camera on the market, but i think is much much better. basic black is SO SO boring. i didn't realize it comes in silver! but some other inventive colors would be nice too... also it seems to be VERY hard to get it in a color here in the u.s., tho i did find some on ebay after i had bought it on amazon.... dayam!!!).

I was planning to purchase a new camera back in December 2010 but did a lot of research and at one point I almost purchased the Samsung ST600 but was going to wait until we received our tax refund. I continued my research just in case something new came out and sure enough the ST700 was introduced. I waited until it was available and did some shopping around and found it for $221.00 which I thought was a great price. I have been using it but it has so many features that it is going to take a while to get through them all. The size is just great for all the stuff it has on it and friends are amazed at the quality f the photos and so am I. I also like the interface with my computer using the cable or pulling the card out to insert into the computer. I live in a wooded area and so we have all sorts of animals since we all left our back yards natural and the deer and other animals are there to take live videos and post them on Facebook. I hope t a lot of enjoyment from the camera. I think it was a great buy.

I was so excited for this camera. After doing a lot of research and price comparisons I thought I'd found the perfect camera for me--something that I could take self-portraits with with friends and family, but that could also work for scenic photography as well. Boy, was I WRONG. As soon as it arrived I regretted buying this horrible device. Let me make a list to simply the strikes against it:
1) The touch screen is IMPOSSIBLE to use. This comes from someone who has an iPhone, tablet, and multiple other touch-screen devices in her home. It is very inconsistent and does not do what you want to it to, ever. You have to try and re-try multiple times to simply move from one picture to the other or to delete a single photo.
2) It is SLOW. And I mean, noticeably awkward and stone-age slow. It seems like a full minute (probably more realistically about 15-30 seconds) for the flash to come after you press the button to take a picture. This means not only do you totally miss the moment you're trying to capture, but when trying to take a picture with a friend you stand there smiling like an idiot for about 20 seconds. This is probably the feature of the camera that makes it not only inconvenient but unusable. What's the point in a digital camera if you might as well be using a daguerrotype?
3) NO forced flash on. The only option is "auto flash" which is NOT acceptable when taking photos outdoors or in dark conditions. It ruined many a photo before I had the sense to return the camera.
4) Very loud and noisy. The volume probably could've been turned down but the camera did NOT have a user-friendly interface, and so I could not for the life of me figure out how to shut it up, even though, as I said, I am usually quite tech-savvy.
5) The front-LCD screen is horrible quality.

This product is visually beautiful for a camera and for a point and shoot it has A LOT of features. I really liked the wide arrange of photo and video options you can choose some with a lot of stunning effects and picture quality.

There is only a few things i wish could have changed with the product.

1. I wish the touchscreen was a little more sensitive. (Overall it isn't THAT bad, but its manageable)
2. Be careful not to get any hard dust or debris in the lense because it WILL refuse to close if it gets to clogged up. This camera is definitely not a rugged all terrain camera, but a delicate camera to be carried in a hard shell camera case.
3. The front LCD could be a little bit more accurate with what the final picture would look like. I kinda wished the LCD in the front would display the final look of the picture from looking from the back as well.

Summary: Other than being an outstanding point and shoot camera with a ton of great features and beautiful stunning pictures, the construction quality of the possible lens malfunction, front LCD inaccuracy, and touchscreen in-sensitivity makes my rating not a full five stars. BUT! The picture quality and its great user friendliness definitely makes up for it and it being a dual screen LCD camera makes it great, innovative, and fun.
