About Samsung ST72

The Samsung ST72 Digital Camera,(White) is a compact point-and-shoot digital camera that features a 16.2 megapixel 1/2.3" CCD image sensor to provide high resolution still imagery and HD 720p video at 30fps. A built-in Samsung 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-125mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide array of shooting scenarios. Digital image stabilization also benefits working with greater zoom magnifications and when working in low light, by compensating for the effects of camera shake to render sharp, clear imagery.

Overall amazing camera!


from Greensburg, IN

I have 4 digital cameras and out if all 4, this Samsung camera is the BEST one I've ever owned as far as a point and shoot. It is ranked up there with the professional camera I own. I couldn't ask for a better one.


GREAT 16.2 Mpixel REPLACEMENT for 14.2 Mpixel PL120


from Florida, USA

My PL120 main screen was broken....ordered a replacement from China....couldn't get the screws out to replace screen....gave it to a friend to fiddle with....bought this one to replace PL120. I like the Panorama View. I'll get used to the zoom lever. Bought the 2-year warrantee (in case screen breaks). BIG fingers....on/off switch buried. Lotsa features I will probably never use. Got a REAL good deal on it. Multi-model manual can confuse if you don't remember it's an ST72.

Love this camera


from Jacksonville, AR 72076, USA

I bought this camera for my granddaughters 11th birthday. She loved it and took it with her to the zoo. This is her first camera and it was easy to use and understand. By the time we got to the zoo she had mastered the camera functions and was eager to snap all the animals pics. I love samsung products and this will not be the last purchase of samsung for sure!!


mixed feelings


from sd

I bought this camera less than 90 days ago. I love the quality of the pictures and the video was very good too! My mixed feelings comes from the fact that I was only able to use this camera on a couple occasions. It quit opening, so doesn't work anymore. I didn't save my original sales receipt, silly me, so I can't send it in to get it fixed. I brought it back to the store I bought it at, they were going to replace it for me, but they no longer have it. so I got my money back from them, but I have no nice camera. If you buy this camera, you will love it, but save your sales receipt.. just in case.


Excellent value


from Scranton, PA, USA

I love the compact size of this camera. It takes crisp, clear pictures and videos and has different modes for a variety of pictures. You get a lot of camera for the price. I love it!


Like size and features


from Undisclosed

This small compact camera was purchased by my teen daughter and has proved to be full capable of doing all she would like it to do and more. It is easy to use and easy to take with her. She is over joyed with the purchase.


This camera is by far the best


from Petaluma, California

Not only is this an awesome starter camera w/ all the features one could want in a small pocket, or purse size, and to max that out the directions for the camera are mapped out beautifully, in all, you don't even need the directions because all the buttons/ finger slider are so easy, you'll be shooting photos like a pro in no time at all with crisp details alot of the medium sized cameras can't even come close to, such simplicity, who said taking great shots had to break your hopefully you find yourself w/ a great camera in no time, walking the countryside, streets, back roads, gardens and showing the beauty of everyday life in all its splendore.


Not as advertised


from Abilene, TX, USA

I bought this camera in hopes of it taking good night time photos and it did not, all were blurry and could not see subject well at all. Other than that camera is awesome takes great day photos and has a lot of great features. I am not sorry I bought this camera just will not take night time pictures. Great features for the price and also very lightweight and able to fit into shirt pocket! Would buy this camera again.


my first digital camera


from Pittsburgh, PA, USA
