The black Samsung ST72 Digital Camera 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.
