Samsung Unleashes New Digital Cameras
Samsung Korea has announced their new digital cameras – the 12.2 megapixel point-and-shoot PL-Series, 12-megapixel high-zoom WB650 and WB600, and ultra-slim ST70 and ST60. Read on for the news.
Samsung has extended its popular PL-Series of digital cameras with the introduction of the PL80. The 12.2-megapixel point-and-shoot offers unprecedented value for the casual shooter with a versatile 28mm wide-angle, 5x optical zoom lens, Dual Image Stabilization, and Samsung’s full range of smart features packed in a slim, compact frame.
The Samsung PL80 offers a 28mm wide-angle Samsung lens which provides consumers with a 5x optical zoom (28mm-140mm / 35mm equivalent) to capture more of a desired scene from farther away.
Users will benefit from Samsung’s Dual Image Stabilization (IS) technology, which gives them the ability to capture crystal-clear images by combining both Optical and Digital Image stabilizers to produce sharp images. The Optical IS intelligently compensates for hand trembling by shifting the lens in the opposite direction. When Optical IS isn’t quite enough, the Digital IS automatically takes over to ensure virtually blur-free images.
Smart Automatic Controls and Video Recording
The PL80 comes fully equipped with an array of automatic controls, including Samsung’s advanced scene recognition technology known as Smart Auto; Smart Auto analyzes key elements of the composition of the image such as color, brightness, motion, and subject, and then selects the appropriate scene mode which will produce the best results possible.
Other features include object tracking and Perfect Portrait System which consist of Face Detection, Samsung’s Smile Shot and Blink Detection technologies, Red Eye Fix mode, and Beauty Shot.
Samsung also offers standard definition video recording in the new PL80. At a resolution of 640×480 and 30 frames-per-second recording, users can switch easily from taking 12.2-megapixel digital stills to recording movies.
