Love This Camera! Samsung is AMAZING!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

Hello! I bought the Samsung PL120 digital camera because it has the picture on the front as well as the back. When I have no one to take a picture of me or me with someone, it is not a problem for me anymore. All I have to do is aim the camera to me and I see exactly what the picture will look like full size. The battery is long lasting. Charging up the battery is easy, all you need is an outlet to plug it in. The arrow will turn green when it is 100% charged. The camera is light weight and small. I recommend buying a 4GB or 8GB memory card from eBay.com because there are many great deals available. It is very easy to use. I read the instructions but you can easily figure out how to work the camera without reading it. It is the best buy for your money. And uploading the pictures taken and the video recorded to your computer is easy and quick.

A nice Value Priced Pocketable Camera

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

I bought this because I wanted to see how the front screen would work and for a pocketable value priced camera. I knew it was NOT a top-of-the-line P&S and so my expectations were not disappointed.
Pros:
Small, light weight,many features,decent build quality, average PIX quality, best in outdoor shots (good), decent zoom lens.
Cons: PIX quality could be better, especially in marginal light situations, but for the price the camera is pretty good. Don't like the in-camera battery charging (I bought an after-market plug in charger)
The camera, as others have said, is aimed at the teen and family market, Facebook and Youtube users, etc. Its' still a really fun little box that produces adequate results. Using a decent photo editor program can help a lot to make the shots better.

Good travel camera to keep in your pocket

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

The camera is great if you are looking for a camera to take with you on trips or out with friends. It's super small and compact so it will fit in your pocket. The picture quality is good but don't expect it to be proffessional quality. It has it's own charger which is good too because the last thing you want is to run to the store to buy more batteries! Speaking of that the battery life is great too! For a week of constant use I only charged it twice! The only thing that is annoying is that sometimes it takes too long for the shutter to go off. You'll press the button and it will take a good amount of time to think about whether it wants to use the flash or not. There aren't many options for it either. It's pretty basic. It's really a good gift for a teenager as a start up camera that they can demolish without demolishing your wallet! Do not pay over $100 for it! You can find deals all over the place! Happy snapping!

Do not waste your money in this camera.

No, I would not recommend this product.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

This camera is a very disappinting one, the quality of pictures are awful, the interface is very bad, the resolution of pictures are bad, the size is OK, the functionallity in general is disappointing, i consider myself very expert in handling a digital camera and bought this one due to an offer in ebay and i need a camera for my wife, this product is just a waste of money.

fun and affordable, I love this camera!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

This camera is exactly what i was looking for. It's editing features are fun and very useful. The background/frame effects are great too. The quality of the photos turned out amazing. (with flash on..) i have a not-so-steady hand for no flash in darker lighting situations but that's my fault ha! The screen in the front is also very useful, I love how it's completely hidden when the camera is off. I would recommend this camera as well as any other samsung brand products out there. They tend to add more "fun" to just a normal point and shoot camera.

This is probably the best point and shoot camera on the market.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

This is probably the best point and shoot camera on the market in the below $200 price range. It takes amazing pictures and the screen on the front is incredible for people who often want to get a picture of themselves while in remote locations such as rock climbing or hiking. It is small, very light weight and has a great battery life. The zoom feature takes some getting used to and the menu is detailed so far as I have less features on my DSLR. This is good and bad. Great quality product and I would recommend it to just about anyone.

Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

So far I love it, I went to an event the other week and it lasted for the whole night. I love that it uses a lithium battery and comes with a charger, because now i don't have to but AAA batteries and instead just charge it while I sleep. I will say that the pictures look better on the camera but once expanded on the computer... not that great...it could just be that I am not as good looking as I thought I was, haha. Anyway I love the camera it is a good size (Fits in one hand and very light weight. Also I don't really use the features offered to much which is weird.

Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

I bought this camera as a present for my husband for his birthday. Both my husband and I like the camera and its features. Specially, the quality of the pictures that show on the LCD. They come out beautifully. The weight and size is perfect to carry in his pockets. It is somewhat longer compared to other cameras he has had and have broken easily on him. The price on this camera was perfect and affordable.

Great camera, front camera is awesome feature, high quality pictures.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

Front Screen works great. Even has a feature where it detects your smile and then takes the picture on its own. Takes great quality pictures. Haven't really figured out the flash yet, as it takes a couple seconds of holding down the button for it to decide on the brightness of the flash. Overall though it was a good buy

Awesome camera! Love the dual screens! Great value for the cost!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Samsung PL series PL120 14.2 MP Digital Camera - Black

Unfortunately pictures are irreplaceable... I bought this camera for my mother n' law. Her camera was stolen (and outdated). I picked this camera in particular because of the dual screens. This is such a great idea and it helps get the perfect shot, especially those hard to get self portraits. My only issue is that it takes quite a bit of time to download the picture (that is taken with the front screen). It would be so perfect if this little delay were fixed. The mega pixels and zoom are great. Excellent quality pictures. Again, kudos to the person who thought of the dual screens. I will definitely be getting this camera next :)
Side note: When I bought my own camera (before I new of this camera) in the store, it came with a SD card and adapter. This camera did not, which would have been really helpful. This camera does not have a large internal storage (only 4-5 pictures), so I could not really test out all of the features and their appearances in the photos.
I did however get her an SD card too and my mother n' law has checked everything out. She loves the camera and we have captured many memories. Thanks!
