    Compact Cameras

    There are times when I just dont want to carry around a large camera, although I have a cheap panasonic and Nikon compact camera, they are a little old. I have been looking at some of the Samsung compacts with the dual screens, that looks to be a cool feature.
    In particular, something like the Samsung ST700

    Yeah, I think it would be interesting to have dual screens, however wouldn't this just make it twice as likely to break a screen if you're carrying it around in your pocket? Just a thought.

    possibly, but hopefully the strength of the LED display would be comparable with mobile phones, which can take a battering inside your pocket.
    But mostly they seem to be softer, more like a monitor.
    I think its use would be more from the ability to take a self portrait, but I am not even sure if that is possible in the same way as is possible with a mobile phone.

    This is true, and although I've never broken any screens in my life, I think that if you had anything else in your pocket other than this camera, the screens would likely get scratched. And although you do have a good point about taking a self portrait, most DSLRs allow for you to hook it up to a laptop with a live view, and if you use this in combination with a wireless remote, you can effectively do the same thing with much better quality

    i would suggest you to go with sony cameras... the NEX-7 in my opinion is best, it's a compect system camera which offers great control.. The Sony NEX-7 is easily the best camera Sony's ever made...
