Samsung Rolls Out More Compact Cameras, Does Anyone Care?

Those begin with the $100 ST30 model, and move on up to the ST65, ST90 and touchscreen-equipped ST95, before topping out with the $230 ST6500..."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1296059357.usr15670.jpg" /></p><p>So what we have here are a bunch of compacts, with 5x zoom lenses starting at 26/27mm equivalent for all the models except the ST30 (that comes with a 3x starting at 28mm equivlanet), 10 to 16 megapixel sensors, 720p video mode in all but the $100 model. Prices range from US$100 to US$230. Does anyone care about such low end compacts from a name that has no brand recognition when it comes to cameras? Price-wise both Nikon and Canon have equally cheap cameras, so it does not seem to be something Samsung can really crow about here. </p>
