Samsung unveils ST6500 with 7 degree “angled body”

Today Samsung has revealed five new digital cameras for the US market; the ST30, ST65, ST90, ST95 and ST6500 compact digital cameras. Most notably is the ST6500 with a 7 degree angled lens that Samsung claims “makes for a more ergonomic fit in the hand.” The angled design is the least bit impressive and continues Samsungs’ trend of disappointingly inadequate low-end shooters.

The ST30 is a tiny compact 10 Megapixel shooter with 1/3″ CCD that will cost just $100. It has DIS Digital Image Stabilization, a 28mm wide zoom lens all in about the size of a mobile phone. Expect it in stores this March.

The ST65 and ST90 have a 14MP 1/2.3” CCD, with the ST95 and ST6500 both having a 16MP 1/2.3” CCD. Their prices range from $129 to $229. Check the specs below for more details.
