In terms of software, the Samsung ST96’s is extremely similar to the Samsung WB750 software, but slightly condensed.

You’ve got your photo settings, with just one option; to change the photo size. Next we’ve got the movie settings where you can change the movie size from HD to VGA, as well as the microphone setting. The photo and video section should have definitely been combined, in my opinion, seen as though there are three options between two screens.

Next up there’s the volume / sound settings. Here you can change the overall volume for the camera, as well as the start sound, shutter sound, beep sound and AF sound.

You also have the ability to change the more general settings including grid lines, date and time and display brightness.

The last setting panel allows you to go a bit more in-depth regarding the time and date, language and power.

In terms of overall ease of use, the Samsung ST96 was extremely simple to use, and the built-in camera software was very well laid out, just like the Samsung WB750 software.

Image Quality

As you can see, the image quality is very impressive. The colours are very vibrant and the depth of field appears to be very good as well, if you take a look at the left side of the picture.

Panoramic Photo Quality

It appears that including a panoramic photo setting is all the rage these days, and so it should be! It’s definitely a great feature that Samsung seem to be able to pull off effortlessly in both their camera and smartphone ranges.

Full 1080p HD video recording

The Samsung ST96 is capable of recording in full 1080 HD at 30fps, a feature that should be standard in most devices nowadays. As well as 1080p, you can also record in 720p, 380p, 176p (440fps) and 304p (250fps).

The overall quality of full 1080p HD video recording on the Samsung ST96 was very impressive, and you also have the ability to record with or without sound.

Another great feature is that you’re able to take a quick photo whilst recording so you’ll never miss a shot again.

Desktop Software

When you hook up your Samsung ST96 to your PC, you’ll be prompted to launch the built-in software that’s hidden away on the ST96. The software allows for photo editing, movie editing and you can even share your media from the software itself.

When your camera features GPS, the desktop software can pull up a map of the world and show you all of the locations your photos were taken. Not really a necessity, but a good feature nonetheless.
