Make sure the only motion in your videos is intentional. Dual image stabilization automatically compensates for unwanted camcorder movement by realigning each electronic image, frame by frame, with steady results. This feature combines the mechanical precision and digital technology of both optical and digital image stabilization.
The Samsung PL170 also allows you to record movies in the palm of your hand. With HD Movie, you can capture video in 1,280-by-720-pixel resolution at 30 frames per second.
Front and Back LCD Viewfinders
With the PL170, it's easier than ever to put yourself in the shot. In addition to the 3-inch viewfinder on the rear of the camera, there is an additional 1.5-inch LCD screen on front. This allows you to quickly line up self-portraits or join a friend or loved one for a perfectly-framed two-person photo.
Smart Auto 2.0 Creates the Perfect Shot
Using Smart Auto 2.0, the Samsung PL170 captures the perfect shot by analyzing key composition elements and selecting from 17 different photo and 4 different movie modes.
Using its face/smile/blink-detection feature, the Samsung PL170 detects and adjusts the lighting on up to nine different faces at a time. The camera will automatically shoot the subjects when they laugh or smile, and prohibit the shot from happening if anyone's eyes are closed.
Advanced Effects for Your Photos with Smart Filter
The Samsung PL170 contains Smart Filter 2.0, a collection of lens effects that give your still shots an artistic edge. These include a miniature filter, which miniaturizes everything in your picture; a vignetting filter, which delivers a striking compositional contrast; and a fish-eye filter, which zooms in to give your subject a cool, distorted look.
The camera's Beauty Shot feature automatically removes dark circles, facial blemishes, and imperfections to create great portraits. It's like having a makeup artist in your camera. The front LCD screen makes it even easier to take great self-portraits.
