Samsung has announced its latest digital camera, the PL55 Digi-Cam. This 12-megapixel PL55 camera has a 5x optical zoom and a 2.7-inch LCD display screen. This gadget is equipped with techie features, including Samsung’s “Smart Auto” scene recognition with 11 optimized picture settings, face, smile and blink detection, an image stabilization to help reduce blur caused by hand movements as well as a “Beauty Shot” mode for retouched facial skin.
The PL55 also features high-quality MJPEG video recording at a resolution of 640×480. In addition, the PL55 boasts a self portrait feature that beeps when faces are positioned centrally and a “Frame Guide” function that works as a pre-set-up visual guide when you focus the camera to someone to take a shot. There’s also “Smart Album” content management system that claims to make it easier to find snaps, digital image stabilisation, movie capture and up to ISO 3200.
The PL55 has a recommended price of £149 and will be available in black, silver, red and blue from August 2009.
