Samsung releases five new slim, style-minded ST cameras today. The Samsung ST30, ST6500, ST95, ST90 and ST65. The new point-and-shoots offer features such as 720p HD video recording and wide angle lenses.
Featuring a 5x 26mm wide angle lens, the ST6500 promises sleek style and advanced tech. It offers a 3.0-inch touchscreen, optical image stabilization and a 16 megapixel CCD sensor.
