Create Stunning Photos: Magic Frame

Turn a portrait into an old film still, or make a friend famous with their face on a billboard. With Magic Frame, it's easy to create clever, poster-quality images. Just select one of the background templates, point, align and capture the fun — to hang on your own wall or to share.

Make Images More Special: Smart Filter 2.0

Feeling creative? Then you'll love the 13 lens and colour effects of Smart Filter 2.0. Choose the Vignetting effect for striking compositional contrast. The Fish-eye effect will give videos a cool, distorted feel. And the Miniature Effect creates a scale-model look. Try colour filters too — like Sketch and Defog — to add emotion, an ultra-vivid vibe or other artistry to your images.

Intelligent Portrait

Choose the Best Angles: Intelligent Portrait

What's your best side? Take three different photos of the same scene, at the same time. Snap a wide-angle shot of a friend and the camera captures two other good angles and compositions in the same click.

Looking Beautiful: Perfect Portrait System Want a flawless portrait?

Face Detection automatically adjusts settings for the ideal focus and exposure. Beauty Shot and a red-eye removal feature takes care of the details — retouching skin tone and eliminating facial imperfections and red eyes. With the ST76 you can say hello to beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Kid You Not 22 Oct 2012
Colour Name:Black
My wife purchased this camera for me and I have been using it for about a week now. My first thoughts were - it is soooo tiny - how can a camera this size be any good - it reminded me of a freebee I had received with a toner cartridge some years ago.

How wrong could I be.

It fits in my pocket - it feels well built - not too light. The quality of the pictures are cracking and the functions that come with the camera including the built in back grounds all just seem to work.

The Panoramic view, again very clear and just seems to work.

The Video is great - the quality of the images are spot on and if you connect to a computer the camera trips a download of the software to manage both the pictures and the video.

I am not a professional photographer as you can guess from the review - but this meets my needs - clear sharp pictures and video, easy to carry and straight forward to use - however there are a number of functions if you are more adept as a photographer you can change. I would download the manual from the Samsung web site to get a better insight into what the camera can do. Perhaps I should have done that first.

Frankly I could not be happier.

I did have a Fujifilm HS20EXR that had to go back and be fixed - when I needed it to work - holiday, sons Nativity - it would crash or simply stop working and need turning on and off. After the rear screen failed it went back for a refund - excellent customer service from Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung ST76 Compact Digital Camera 17 Nov 2012
By keithdl
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Excellent little camera that fits easily into my coat pocket. Takes superb pictures in natural daylight, but had a little trouble when I used in in the difficult lighting conditions in the National Railway Museum at York. It wanted to use the flash all the time, which increased the time taken between shots. It's probably just me being unused to it - I'll read the manual and try again!

A good purchase for anyone who wants to produce excellent pix in everyday situations, with the added bonus that, with 16mp, you can enlarge the pix on your pc until they fill the room!

Excellent service from Amazon, as usual.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointed after reading reviews 1 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Purple|Verified Purchase
I had the samsung PL20 (still for sale on amazon) but managed to drop it and it broke, came back to amazon to buy another and saw this one on offer, hey as time goes on technology gets better right ummmmmh "wrong". should have bought the PL20????? silly me!!!! There seems to be 2 fundamental flaws: A: Its ability to take pictures in low light (supposed to be its speciality) but flash wants to constantly come on, and when not used the exposure is slow and you end up with a blurry photo. B: on the PL20 you could turn on an anti-shake device, handy for when using the zoom, not on this. It is automatic and not very good, again blurry photos when using the full 5x zoom. Other than these 2 flaws everything else is very good, fantastic pics in good light, long battery life, large internal storage, simple menu system, easy transfer of photos etc: credit where credit is due.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best camera I've ever bought 10 Feb 2013
Colour Name:Purple|Verified Purchase
This camera is just amazing. I bought it for my girlfriend who had an old camera which always took blurred pictures. Every single picture we've taken with this has been crystal clear. It's just amazing, especially for the price range.

Quite an expensive camera at £300 - but a year and a half later the telescopic lens system failed which is not good. In this case there had definitely NOT been any trauma to it. Read more
