Samsung PL120 review

 

You can take easy self-portraits with the front screen, but is that all a camera needs?

Good overall build quality ; Nice colour rendition ; Sharp pictures ; Nice package for the price

Flimsy battery and USB port cover ; Cluttered back will be difficult for large hands ; Occasional random noise at low ISO

Next to the 5x optical zoom lens on the PL120 is what looks like a blank space, but it is actually a 1.5 inch LCD screen that shows the live view image - perfect for self portraits.

Samsung PL120 Dual View Camera Review

 

We review the ultra compact Samsung PL120 - the budget camera features a 1.5 inch screen on the front.

Very compact design; Screens on front and rear; Good colour reproduction; Good value for money - cheapest camera with dual screens; Optical zoom available when recording videos

Quite high noise at ISO800

The Samsung PL120 offers not one but two LCD screens – the second being placed on the front – and this makes it perfect for self portraits and group shots.

Samsung PL120 Review

 

From a distance, the Samsung PL120 is an unassuming digital compact camera that could get lost amongst the swathes of other similar models on a shop shelf. Closer inspection, though, reveals some interesting features for a camera at this budget price...

For such a small camera, there's a lot going on with the Samsung PL120. In fact it could be argued that there's too much going on, especially on the back. It only has a tiny body and to have all those buttons on the back, especially three menu buttons,...

Samsung PL120

 

Consistently decent, if not extraordinary, scores across the board make for a good value

An extra front-facing LCD; Fairly accurate color

Not the sharpest images; Poor video quality

The front-facing LCD found on the Samsung PL120 indicates–at least to us–that this is a camera intended for the most casual of casual users, whose most common framing is the cheek-to-cheek B.F.F. self-portrait, bound for Facebook and tagging and...
