Samsung PL170 announcement clippings

Put yourself in the right frame with the Dual-LCD display PL170! Generous dual-view displays of large 1.5” front and wide 3.0” back let you choreograph flawless self-shots, previewed with ease on a larger screen. Convenient top button offers instant on/off power control for the front LCD screen and quick flips from still to movie or among shooting modes. Several Smart Settings make for easy-does-it perfect images.

Samsung's Smart Filter lens and colour options make special moods easy for still shots and videos. Tilt & Shift Lens Effect adds a miniaturised look and the Vignetting Effect makes striking compositional contrasts. New special effects include Soft Focus to soften colours and add an emotional feel as well as Half-Tone Dot to enhance images with a comic-book look. Palette Effect adds an ultra-vivid vibe and a variety of colour options for your images. It's now a snap to get creative.
