Samsung launches the PL60 - A powerful must-have compact camera with a sleek 5x Optical zoom lens.
Samsung, leaders in innovation and digital imaging, is pleased to announce the release of the 5x Optical zoom PL60.
Perfect for photography enthusiasts and those looking for a slim compact without compromising on great photographic features and a host of advanced Samsung technology.
Samsung’s Dual Image Stabilization with Face Detection technology ensures improved image quality and outstanding photos without blur – even in low light conditions. Samsung’s popular ‘Beauty Shot’ feature allows users to retouch facial skin for a brighter and smoother skin tone so every picture is as flattering as possible.
Smart Scene Recognition
The 10 megapixel PL60 features Samsung's new "Smart Scene Recognition" technology. "Smart Scene Recognition" has 11 optimized picture pre-settings such as Portrait, Night portrait, Macro and Macro Colour helping people take the perfect shot regardless of the conditions. You can also use these settings when sorting through your photos - making it quick and easy to find all the portrait, outdoor or macro images you've taken.
Digital Contents Management
In addition to the “Smart Scene Recognition” technology, the camera features Samsung’s unique Digital Contents Management system (DCM); a contents management program within the camera itself that significantly reduces the time it takes to find your favourite photos – so it’s quicker and easier to store and manage your photo collection. The clever navigation program automatically organizes photos based on the date they were taken, their contents, colour, or themes – so you’ll never have an excuse for losing a photo again.
The PL60 will be available from March 2009 and will be priced at £129 (TBC). Customers requiring further information should visit the Samsung website.
