|Samsung's 14.2-megapixel camera is the next generation in high-resolution compact cameras. It comes fully equipped with a true-color filtered 14.2-megapixel CCD and boasts a powerful 7x optical zoom. In addition, this high-resolution camera produces incredibly detailed images that can be used for printing poster-sized photos.Samsung PL200 has a 3.0" LCD for improved contrast and color reproduction, which allows you to enjoy a wider and clearer image. And its Intelligent LCD brightness automatically detects environmental illumination and adjusts the LCD brightness for optimal image viewing. It does the thinking for you, which makes the PL200 a smart choice. The PL200 is like having a compact HD video camera that also takes professional-grade photos. It records HD video in 1280 x 720p resolution at 30 frames per second. Its H. 264 format also allows you to record twice as much as an MP4 and four times more than an MJPEG- the format used in many other digital cameras- and delivers much higher video and sound quality.No one has a bad side with PL200's Perfect Portrait system. Sure it fixes red-eye, but this next generation face detection technology even detects blinking. So you're always sure eyes are open and smiles are bright. In addition it evens skin tones, erases blemishes and removes dark circles. And with different level settings, you can control how much retouching you do. Not that your friends and family need any.|

The Samsung PL200 is easy to use and has a large LCD and good photo quality for its class.
The Samsung PL200's lens isn't as long or wide as competing models. It also has a pretty short battery life and requires a proprietary cable for charging.
"A simple ultracompact with a long lens, the Samsung PL200 isn't a standout, but shouldn't be overlooked either."

I bought this camera to replace the one I broke. Same camera that I initially bought for closeups of makers marks and patterns on china that I was selling on ebay.
Easy to use, switches back and forth between macro and regular focus with ease, clear bright sharp photos.
I hope I don't drop this one!
And I found it for a great price on ebay. About $100 less than BestBuy.
