Compact and stylish, the Samsung S860 digital camera features a 3x optical zoom, a Samsung SHD lens, and Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) to help minimize the effect of camera shake and produce sharp, clear images, especially in low-light environments. You can also take advantage of advanced features such as Face Detection and Self Portrait mode.
Face Detection technology makes taking pictures of family and friends a snap, as it detects up to nine faces and automatically adjusts focus and exposure to ensure better composition and image quality. Self Portrait mode is a unique functionality that takes the guessing out of taking a self portrait. By utilizing Face Detection technology, the S860 automatically detects the subject's face, adjusts focus and exposure, and will only allow a photo to be taken if the subject is centered in the frame.
