For consumers looking for a bit more power in a point-and-shoot camera, Samsung has brought out the 16-megapixel ST6500.

Samsung touts the ST6500 as a "stylish" camera, which I suppose is true. The all-black exterior seems rather typical for a pocket camera, but I guess black never goes out of style.

Nevertheless, one of the key design points is the camera’s body, which is curved around the lens and angled at seven degrees for a more ergonomic fit.

From there, we have some above average specs:

  • 26mm wide-angle lens
  • 5x optical zoom
  • Optical and Digital Image Stabilization
  • 3-inch LCD touch screen with Smart Touch 3.0 user interface
  • 1/2.33-inch CCD image sensor
  • 720p HD video recording and playback
  • Smart Auto focus (Still/Movie)
  • Smart Filter 2.0
  • Perfect Portrait System

The ST6500 will also be on shelves this March for $229.99.

  • Megapixel myth

    How good is the colour gamut and shadow detail?

    Size of the 16MP sensor?

    Amount of noise on resultant images? (the smaller the sensor combined with the density of elements to create the __MP sensor means more noise, especially at lower ISOs (400, 800, 1600...)

    While, when it comes to any art, what's operating the camera is most important, the quality of the equipment is important as well. Otherwise my cell phone and iphone cameras would be ideal (and they're far from it. :) )
