Samsung PL150 Reviews

PCWorld reviews the Samsung PL150 and writes;
“Digital video recording on the PL150 is also pretty good. Shooting in HD mode at a widescreen resolution of 1280×720, results were pleasing. Dim lighting will lead to grainy footage, so make sure you are in a well-lit environment if you want the best from the PL150. “
Rating: ★★★½☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Samsung PL150 and writes;
“Macro performance is quite good, allowing you to focus as close as 5cms away from the subject. Commendably barrel distortion is well controlled even at the 27mm wide-angle focal length. The built-in flash worked fairly well indoors, with no red-eye and adequate overall exposure.”
Rating: ★★★★½ reviews the Samsung PL150 and writes;
“Overall, colors are good in images though it’s clear the PL150 likes to oversaturate greens and blues. Images at full magnification look a tad overprocessed, and even at low ISO levels itshows evidence of noise. “

Great camera! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The new ‘couple shoot which detects when our two heads come together and also when you smile and takes the photo for you. (You can turn this feature off if you wish) I always find it annoying when you want a nice picture with two people in it and you can’t tell what you look like. However, within minutes I have mastered this and can now take brilliant photos of us together.” – By smileyjo

Who needs a professional photographer when you have the PL150? With a Dual display 3.0” LCD there’s an easier way to take perfect self-portraits. Using a 1.5” Front LCD, users can see their self portrait before they take it. And with a quick button on top, users can easily access front LCD functions like: Self portrait (Still & Movie), Couple shot and Children mode.

Stylish Design with 7˚ Tilt-back Body
The subtle infusion of color in the body of the PL150 compliments your style while the innovative Tilt-back body makes it easier than ever to take self portraits without the use of a tripod.

The simple way to go pro.
Turn any moment into a perfect memory. And a professional-looking photo.

And since life isn’t a still life, the camera’s object tracking feature captures those subjects that just don’t, or won’t, stand still.

Even the tiniest shake can ruin your shot. Dual Image Stabilization solves that. Samsung has combined the revolutionary technology of their ultimate Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) mechanism with the advanced algorithms of Digital Image Stabilization (DIS).

So let your Samsung camera shake things up. In a good way.

Cool effects make every photo unique.
