Samsung has incorporated new features and functions into an upgraded version of the SDP-860 High Definition Digital Presenter.

Users will also find the Microscope mode much easier to use with the SDP-860 automatically correcting its preset lens settings when using the SML-860 Microscope lens, as well as providing better initial exposure settings for the user. An improved built-in microphone delivers better quality in-camera audio recording.
