Samsung PL120 Overview

  • 1Description

Samsung's PL120 DualView Digital Camera (Black) lets you in on the fun: the PL120 features a 1.5" LCD screen on the front of the camera, so if you're in a photo, you (and everyone else in the picture) can see how it looks before it's taken. Then, turn the camera around to review the picture on the bright 2.7" LCD screen on the back. The PL120 also has a Children mode with built-in and downloadable animations for the front screen, to keep kids' attention, and a visual countdown for the self-timer so everyone in a group will smile at the same time.

With 14MP of resolution, a 5x wide-angle 26-130mm optical zoom lens, and digital image stabilization, the results will be stunning. Shooting high definition (HD) 1280 x 720p video is quick and easy, with dazzling quality. Smart Filters offer creative options like Tilt & Shift Lens effect for a miniaturized look, Soft Focus for softer colors and a dreamy feeling, and Half-Tone Dot for a comic book look. The Magic Frame feature gives you a choice of frames that bring a different feeling to each photo. Smart Face Recognition technology and the Perfect Portrait System make your people pictures unforgettable. And Smart Auto 2.0 lets you just push the shutter button and know that you'll get optimal settings without a worry.

Twice the Fun With Dual LCDs
The effortless way to get perfect pictures, Samsung's 2View PL120 has a generous 1.5" front-side display so you're part of every image. Preview self-portraits, then click, with you in the frame - easy. Flip the camera around to enjoy photos on the wide 2.7" display. New features change the view on hard-to-capture experiences. Children Mode has built-in and downloadable animation options to keep kids' attention. Jump Shot offers cues before taking two continuous shots. Self-Timer is a visual countdown to coordinate group shots so everyone smiles at the same time. Quickly pressing the top display on/off button efficiently manages power. From now on, no more out-of-the-frame glitches. No more babies caught crying.
Get a Whole New View
Get more from your lens, whether you're shooting a memorable landscape or your friends around a restaurant table. By using the ST65's 27mm wide-angle lens, you instantly cover a whole-horizon field of view. You can now capture full-scale memories of landmarks and landscapes, entire wedding parties and the tallest skyscrapers.
Invent New Looks for Your Images
The PL120's Smart Filter lens and color options lets you get creative with your shots. The Tilt & Shift Lens Effect gives subjects a miniaturized or scale-model look. The Vignetting Effect sets up striking compositional contrast. New special effects include Soft Focus to soften colors and add an emotional feel as well as Half-Tone Dot to enhance images with a comic book look. Palette Effect adds an ultra-vivid vibe and a variety of color options for your images.
Edit Your Own Special Effects
The unique Magic Frame feature allows you to create sophisticated images and poster-quality visuals that express your mood and personality. Just select one of the built-in Magic Frame templates, including Wall Art, Old Film, Ripple, Full Moon, Old Record, Magazine, Holiday, Classic TV and more. Point the camera at the subject you want, match it within the on-screen template and capture. That's it. Your subject now is framed by a special mood and background - like magic.
HD--Quality Video
The PL120 artfully combines a professional-grade still camera with a compact HD video camera. You get 720p HD quality video at 30 frames per second. Use the 5x zoom to get up close and vividly personal.
The Simple Way to Go Pro
Turn any moment into a perfect memory and a professional looking photo. Smart Auto 2.0 (Still & Movie) instantly analyses key elements of your composition then automatically adjusts to capture the perfect shot with a multitude of different photo and movie modes.
It Knows You, and Only Gets Your Best Side
The PL120 isn't just smart in design. With its Smart Face Recognition technology, the PL120 creates brilliance with every snap. And keeps it that way. By knowing up to 20 of your friends and family, it automatically focuses on them first, making sure the most important subjects are always in crystal clarity. And since the PL120 never forgets a face, you can also browse more efficiently by the people you've registered.
Perfect Portrait System
With our unique Perfect Portrait System, you can get beautiful portrait shots in every condition and moment.
Object Highlight
The PL120's new Object Highlight feature manages and adjusts image backgrounds so every face appears crisply front and center. It works just like a digital single lens reflex camera to put the emphasis on the portrait.

    Samsung PL120 Reviews

    PL120 DualView Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun camera, so-so picture quality. I use it as a pocket-sized travel companion when not wanting to carry around my digital SLR. It's got tons of features, is light weight, compact, and impresses friends with its dual screen. But it tends to take grainy pictures when viewed up close. They're fine for Facebook and sharing with friends, but probably wouldn't use it to enter a photo contest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife love it - small and compact camera - good image and even at low light (set to Smart Auto) - great front LCD feature -only thing i don't like is the special samsung USB cable(not standard Micro or Mini USB)for charging and photo transfering.
