14.2 megapixels; 5x optical zoom; 1.8-inch front-facing LCD; 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen; 27 mm wide angle; Captures to SD/SDHC media cards; Rechargeable lithium-ion battery
The latest in Samsung's successful DualView models (the ones with front-facing LCDs), the ST600 is a matter of evolution rather than revolution. The front LCD, perfect for self-portraits, has grown to 1.8 inches and megapixel count has been upped to 14. It's a 5x zoom that starts at relatively wide 27mm, and 720p HD video is tacked on as well. There's also a new Smart Gesture interface that supposedly makes using the touchscreen a little more bearable. Hopefully the image quality has improved from the first generation of DualView shooters. No ship date yet, but it's slated to sell for $329 at launch.
