Manufacturer's Description

PL150
Who needs a professional photographer when you have the PL150? The dynamic Dual Display feature lets you see the shot on the 3" TFT LCD and 1.5" Front LCD before taking it, so you can smile for the camera and be the photographer at the same time.

Delivering an unrivalled user experience, the PL150's hidden 1.5" LCD located on the front of the camera allows you to take accurate portraits using the front screen as a guide. Couple this with a huge 3.0" LCD that boasts breathtaking resolution and you have a real winner.

Hidden front 1.5" LCD
With a Dual display 3" LCD there's an easier way to take perfect self portraits.

On the front of the camera is a 1.5" LCD that shows you exactly what the picture will look like, so you can now be a subject of the picture, as well as the photographer.

With a quick button on top, users can easily access front LCD functions like: Self portrait, Couple shot, and Child mode which now features animations and sounds!

27mm Wide Angle, 5x Optical Zoom
Whether you're indoors or out, shooting a landscape or friends around a table, this fantastic lens gives you a wider field of view. Capture images of beautiful landscapes, entire wedding parties, and skyscrapers without having to back-up to get the shot.

The subtle infusion of colour 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.

Smart Filter
Samsung's Smart Filter lens effect delivers an artistic edge to your still shots and videos. The Miniature filter gives your subjects a miniaturised look, the Vignetting filter delivers a strikingly strong compositional contrast, and our Fisheye filter gives your video and stills that cool distorted feel.

Smart Auto
Turn any moment into a perfect memory, and a professional looking photo. Whether it's a few friends from last night's party or the moon reflecting off the lake, Smart Auto 2.0 (Still & Movie) instantly analyses key elements of your composition, then automatically adjusts to capture the perfect shot with multitudes of different photo modes and movie modes. 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.

HD Movie mode
The PL150 is like having a compact HD video camera that also takes professional-grade photos. It records HD video in 1280 x 720p resolution at 30 frames per second. It's H.264 format also allows you to record twice as much as an MP4, and four times more than an MJPEG – the format used in many other digital cameras – and delivers much higher video and sound quality. With the HDMI connector you can watch your HD videos with any HDTV or HD monitor.

Dual Image Stabilisation
Dual image Stabilisation incorporates the best sensor shift mechanisms of Optical Image Stabilization with the sophistication of Digital Image Stabilisation to give you ultra-clear images without blur.

Perfect Portrait System
With our unique perfect Portrait system, you can get beautiful portrait shots in every condition and moment.

Recycle bin
Accidents happen. But now that shot you didn't really mean to delete is saved in the PL150's Recycle Bin. You can rest easy, because every shot is automatically stored in a temporary folder just in case you have second thoughts.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!

My boyfriend got me this as a present for my birthday yesterday. What can I say? I am amazed! You can do so many things. The front screen is a must have, I don't see why somebody hasn't invented this before!

My favourite feature: 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. (Which avoids the akwardness of asking for some stranger to take a picture of you)

Other great features:
* The angle you can sit the camera at, which does make it good if you have it sat on a table etc as it misses the end off.
* It has blink detection which means it will take another picture straight away if somebody blinks.
* Countdown Timer displayed on the front screen when setting a timer.
* Jump mode, tells you when to jump and also takes 3 photos (Great fun)
* Children mode now plays music (and you can choose the sound played)
* Smart mode which automatically selects light etc

I have nothing bad to say about this camera. It's a great price and it does so much. I have only had it one day and there is more to it then what I have mentioned. It is a shame there is not much purple on the side but the sleet black makes this camera look expensive and really neat. Some people have said this camera is thick in size but I disagree and think that if it was any thinner it was be hard to hold.

I wouldn't buy anything other than this camera, not even the ST550 as there are some new features like couple shoot and music on children's mode. (Only two of many)

** Note this camera takes Micro SD card. **

I treated myself to this after a long while of searching many different websites in the hopes of finding a nice camera to capture those special memorys. i have not been dissapointed, im so pleased i plumped to get this one. i would reccomend it to everyone after a camera. such good features and easy to use. only downside is that it doesnt come with a memory card which you have to buy seperately but that isnt much of an issue! brilliant camera. **********

Great camera, love the 2nd screen and it's uses! Takes really good pics the Smart Auto function is great and takes some lovely pics. You will definately need to buy a memory card and case as the camera holds very few photos. My only negative is that the camera can be slow in taking the pic sometimes which can mean you miss what you were trying to take a photo off, but when choosing a camera I noticed this was said about a lot of cameras so this is probably unavoidable!

I found that this camera has many amazing, useful features, that help produce high quality images, such as the front screen.

HOWEVER, I think the fact they've packed so many features into this camera has given it extreme lag.
It's taken me up to 15 seconds before for the shutter to take the picture, and has taken half a minute to load the pictures for me to browse through after.

Would not recommend a buy if the customer has a low patience, however I put up with due to it's compactness, features and high quality images.

Bought this for the girlfriend as she loves to take photos when out drinking with her friends 90% of the photos she took came back with half a head or a missing person, so this camera was excellent for that. The 5x optical zoom was also an attraction along with the 12 mp camera. Although technology moves on quickly the screen at the front is absolutely great, If you have kids and can't get them to look at a casmera for photos this plays a little cartoon with sound to attrack they're attention, for you to get the "ultimate snap" and without too much difficulty. It's not your professional camera but I am well happy with the purchase.

I bought a 150 camera from amazon and it is the best camera i have ever had.
It was reduced in price and i am very happy with it .
The only problem i had was that i finished up with 5 of them.
I have bought a lot of goods from Amazon and it has not happened before
I think they have changed the procedure .Any way i got my money back for 4 of them
and i shall still use them. Phil Benfell

I purchased this item as gift for my daughter to replace her old camera which had given up from over use and being thrown around whilst at university. She states this is a great camera with exe lent pj kruse quality and that the large LCD screen is a god send, the front screen helps when taken portraits of yourself wit or without friends.

I bought the camera for my girlfriends birthday as she is into taking photos. The photo quality is really clear and due to going out a lot, it makes getting great photos easier with the front LCD screen.

Maybe a little over priced compared to other cameras on the market with higher specs, but for the average user, a really great camera.
