Taking self portraits can be hard with regular digital cameras. The preview screen is on the back, while the lens is on the front. We usually end up with the “MySpace angle” for most shots and the framing can end up terrible, but sometimes it’s fun. Samsung “fixed” that with an inevitable change, the addition of the second screen. Two new digital cameras have been announced by Samsung featuring the front-facing LCD, as well as a regular preview screen on the back. The Samsung ST100 features a 14.2-megapixel sensor, 3.5-inch touchscreen, 1.8-inch front-facing display, 720p HD video recording, and a 5x optical zoom lens that stays inside its slim body. And the Samsung ST600 with the same display, sensor, and HD video recording capabilities, but with a wider 27mm lens, with the zoom lens sticking out of the body.
Expect to pay $350 for the ST100, and $330 for the ST600.
