Samsung st93 review

Sitting in Samsung's Style range among rivals such as the Nikon Coolpix S6200 and Canon PowerShot SX150 IS, the Samsung ST93 offers a range of shooting options and looks pretty good.

We liked

The range of functions and ease of use with the Samsung ST93 enables you to control your shots and add a creative twist.

We disliked

There's not a huge amount to dislike about this little camera, but we'd like it if the time between shots could be reduced. And bear in mind that you'll need a tripod to pull off crisp photos in low light.

Final verdict

The Samsung ST93 is a very easy-to-use, decent compact camera for someone that wants the opportunity to take good photos but isn't necessarily going to want to spend a large amount of money for a camera with a higher spec.
