Have you ever come across a certain item that, from the moment you laid eyes on it, you felt like it really brought something innovative to its category? I mean, a device providing certain unique, never before seen features that you felt were going to change the respective product segment for good?
Well, if you have (and I'm pretty sure all of you must have felt like this regarding a gadget at some point), then you'll completely understand why we were so excited when testing Samsung's DualView ST550 digital camera, which, as far as we're concerned, really manages to fit within the above description, at least from certain points of view.
Launched back in mid-2009, the ST550 was, at the time, the world's only digital camera to feature not one, but two displays. Of course, there was the main display (touchscreen with haptic feedback, absolutely great in terms of control), but Samsung decided to help out people crazy about self-portraits (and if we take only a quick look at pretty much any social networking service, we'll notice just how many such people are out there) and added a secondary one, which could be employed to allow users to view exactly what they were shooting at any given moment.
While this is, without a doubt, the main selling point of the entire DualView family, there are quite a few other features that make this particular camcorder a very interesting choice, especially for those people out there who aren't as much interested in tacking an artistic photo as they are in taking quick snapshot memories of themselves and friends having fun or even save on video some interesting live action scenes.
There's a lot more to be said about Samsung's ST550 camera, so we hope we've managed to get you interested in this subject.
