Product Features

12.2 Megapixels
High picture quality is obtained by employing an 12.2 megapixel 1/2.33" high resolution CCD sensor. Clear picture quality can be enough resolution for printing up to poster size.

Digital Image Stabilization (DIS)
Thanks to the enhanced sensitivity of Samsung's imaging sensor and Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) technology, you can rest assured that you'll be able to capture beautifully clear images-even in low-light situations.

5x Optical Zoom (DIS)
The 5x zoom will let you get close to the action without letting the bulkiness of the camera get in the way. This versatile camera surpasses the competition with its enhanced usability so you won't miss another shot.

Perfect Portrait System
With our unique Perfect Portrait system, imperfect photos are a thing of the past. For example, the Beauty Shot feature is like having your own make-up artist-right in your camera. It automatically identifies imperfections such as blemishes and dark circles on the face, and retouches them.

Movie Mode
High quality video recording is enabled by supporting 3x optical zoom, VGA resolution at 640 X 480(MJPEG type), and 30/15 fps. Video editing capabilities (Pause during recording, Still Image Capture) enable you to be as creative as you like.

2.7" Intelligent LCD
The Samsung PL57 has a 2.7" LCD for improved contrast and colour reproduction, allowing you to enjoy a wider and clearer image. Also The Samsung PL57's Intelligent LCD brightness automatically detects environmental illumination and adjusts LCD brightness for optimal image viewing.
