Record Screens & Menus

Note: the PL90 kit does not include an AV cable, therefore we had to photograph the LCD for the screens below.

Smart Auto will automatically look at the scene and determine the correct camera settings and shooting modes for you, allowing you to just point and shoot without worrying. Here the only options that you have are: flash on/off and self timer settings.





samsung_pl90_rec_program.JPGWhile also fully automatic, Program mode allows you to access more advanced settings like ISO, White Balance, etc. The LCD icons show you most of the photos settings, which can be removed by pressing your 4-way pad "up". Pressing again will scroll through basic information, no information, or all photo information. The 4-way pad can also be used here as a shortcut for flash, self-timer, and select macro or AF. 





samsung_pl90_rec_mode.JPGPressing the mode button on the camera allows you to quickly change its shooting mode. You have 5 options, all automatic, but with differing amounts of control and features.

samsung_pl90_rec_movie.JPGIn Movie mode you can record in 640x480 (30/15fps) or 320x240 (60/30/15fps) motion video with audio. All movie clips are saved in Motion JPEG format as .AVI video files. The length of movies that can be recorded is determined by the amount of available memory (2GB max. clip size), and unlike most models, the optical zoom can be used while recording.
