CNET UK has reviewed a compact digital camera from Samsung with a large touchscreen. The camera is called Samsung ST6500 and also comes with 16 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens starting at 26mm.

Some key features for the Samsung ST6500:
-16 megapixel image sensor
-5x optical zoom lens (26-130mm)
-5x digital zoom
-3″ LCD touchscreen
-Optical and digital image stabilization

CNET UK ends up giving the ST6500 an overall rating of 4 out of 5 possible stars. The Samsung camera scores highest on its slim design, HDMI output, simple touchscreen controls and all the nice filters that you can apply to your photos. On the negative side there are a few points including mono sound for videos, bad zoom control and the performance is not predictable. The image quality is pretty good too, but does this camera stand out from the myriad of other digital cameras in the same class?
