If you prefer movies to still shots but want to leave your options open (and leave your camcorder at home) the PL55 is right for you. You’ll get 640 × 480 quality video at 30 frames per second. You even can use the 5X optical zoom to get up close and personal. You can even pause your recording. You’ll give up nothing, except carrying around that extra camera.

Even the tiniest shake can ruin your shot. The PL55s Digital Image Stabilisation solves that. Digital Image Stabilization gives you sharp images no matter the condition. Whether its low light, zooming or just a case of plain old shaky hands, your photos come out sharp and clear. So let the PL55 shake things up. In a good way.
Just what you had in mind
Just what you had in mind
You see the image you want in your head. You point the PL55. And Smart Auto sees it too. This scene recognition technology actually chooses from 11 different settings ranging from landscape to portrait automatically. Then adjusts for the perfect shot. Whether it’s catching your friends on a night on the town or a waterfall off a mountain. What you get is exactly what you had in mind. Plus all the credit.
Lost. And then found.
Lost. And then found.
Say you’ve got about 2000 photos stored on your PL55 and you’re looking for one in particular. You could flip through all 2000 or have the Smart Album feature do it for you. It will search and find photos just the way you want. Go straight to that shot you took whether it was last week or last Friday. You can search by colour tone, or even by file type. So no matter how many memories you have crammed onto your memory card, getting directly to the one you want is a no brainer.
The camera loves you.

And with different level settings, you Can control how much retouching you do. Not that your friends and family need any.
