- 27mm wide angle lens with 4.6x optical zoom
The ST500's 27mm wide angle lens plus 4.6x optical zoom gives you a wider shooting range from a shorter distance with more flexibility than 35mm cameras. The precisely cut 27mm optical lens from Schneider-KREUZNACH delivers clear, clean images with even resolution from the center to the edges. Each lens surface is multi-coated to minimize ghosting or flaring for a great shot every time.

- 15 scenes recognition
Take professional-looking photos with Samsung's smart auto feature. Smart auto analyzes key elements of your composition such as color, brightness, motion and subject; then automatically adjusts to take the perfect shot. So you never have to worry about your photos being washed out, too dark or out of focus.
- 20 faces recognition
Built with Samsung's innovative Smart Face Recognition technology, ST500 automatically adjusts the focus and exposure on up to 20 faces. Smart Face Recognition also lets you quickly search for people in your album without having to go through every single photo.
