When I received the brown box from the courier, I started to wonder why it was in such a large box. Upon opening the shipping box, I gazed upon a much smaller box in which held the Samsung ST50. Now at first I did not know how small this Ultra-slim digital camera would be, but with a box this small, I had a feeling it would probably be the smallest compact digital camera I have yet had the pleasure of trying out.
