Summary: The PL70's a decent camera for the money, but it's a long way from perfect. The basic picture quality is fine and it's a decent camera to use, but not all of its features live up to their promise. It's not bad. It's alright. But you can say that about a gazillion other compacts in this price band
Pros: 5x wideangle zoom; practical USB charging; neat design and controls.
Cons: HD movie quality not that good; disappointing Dual IS mode; weak continuous shooting.
Summary: The Samsung PL70 / SL720 is a competent if rather uninspiring compact camera, with an aggressive price-tag being its saving grace.
This point-and-shoot camera ticks all the right boxes, especially for beginners, without really excelling in any one area.
