Samsung Electronics has today unveiled the latest additions to its DualView camera portfolio, the 14.2 mega-pixel Samsung ST100 Digital Camera, which is build off of the success of the Samsung TL225 and TL220 series digital camera, offering consumers a stylish design, a full-range of smart and easy-to-use features, and Samsung’s revolutionary dual LCD technology.

With 1.8-inch larger front LCD screens, the Samsung DualView ST100 digital cameras make it easier for consumers to properly frame themselves in their photos and videos and be part of the action by stepping out from behind the camera and joining friends and family in front.
The Samsung DualView T100 compact digital cameras is also available in stylish, mood-inspired PINK color and is encased in a slim and sleek compact frame with a metallic finish to deliver a new sense of fun and modern functionality that will ensure users stand out from the crowd.
“Today’s launch is an important landmark for Samsung as it reinforces our position as a leading innovator in the digital camera market,” said SJ Park, President of Samsung Digital Imaging Division. “Unlike any other feature found on digital cameras, consumers immediately recognize the value of what our dual LCD technology can do for them. Samsung is looking to simplify that task with the new ST600 and ST100, ensuring they have the ability to take the perfect profile shot, and never have to miss that perfect picture moment with family and friends, even if they’re not behind the camera.”
High-Quality Optics and Images

The Samsung ST100 digital camera is the first Samsung DualView digital camera to feature an internal, 5x optical zoom, which keeps the design optimally chic (35mm focal-length) and features 3.5-inch (8.9 cm) TFT LCD display.
Innovative and Easy-to-Use Functions

The Samsung DualView ST100 digital cameras’ front LCD screens also include a self-portrait mode, a couples mode which will automatically snap a photo when it detects two faces tilted toward each other, a children’s setting which will play a cartoon animation with sound to encourage young ones to smile for the camera, and a self-timer which provides a visual countdown so that everyone posing for a photo knows exactly when to smile.
One of the newest feature incorporated into the front LCD screen is Samsung’s jump shot mode. When set to jump shot mode, the front LCD will provide a visual queue to those in front of the camera to jump in unison, and immediately trigger the digital camera to take three consecutive images to help users capture an image that essentially freezes their subjects in mid-air.
