Samsung PL120 Camera Reviews Roundup


Photography BLOG - Sep 26 2011
"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, is a little too much. The main feature of the Pl120 is the front screen for easy self portraits and t..."

"It's important to keep it in perspective that the PL120 is a cheap and cheerful camera because pictures from it are great. They're colourful with balanced exposure and a decent dynamic range. The previously mentioned issue with noise (or the effects of noise reduction) being apparent at low ISO in bright light could pose as a problem, but we found that it w..." More »

"Color error results were what we'd expect from a point-and-shoot, around 3.00 flat in this lower-is-better test. For reference, an expensive SLR might score somewhere in the mid-two's, while a lousy point-and-shoot might register a 3.50 error rating or above. Since this model retails for only $120, the PL120's color accuracy is above average. More on how we..." More »

CNET UK - Jun 25 2011
"The PL120's picture quality is acceptable for a camera of its price, but fairly unremarkable. Outdoors, in good light, colours are well reproduced, although strong tones may come across as slightly too vibrant for some people's tastes. Edges are sharp and contrast is good, but don't be surprised to find more than a little picture noise in your shots. Purple..." More »

"Wide-angle shots retain more detail towards the centre of images, but look blurry around the edges when viewing at full size, particularly in the corners. In bright sky there is some chromatic aberration in the trees and a hint of purple fringing in places. At telephoto, detail is consistent throughout the image. At ISO80 noise is unnoticeable, but at ISO10..." More »

    This camera is the was fairly cheap and works like a pro, I think I may have purchased it in late 2011 or early 2012 and I am still using it in 2014 and it's working like a charm.

    I've had this camera for years and it works the same as when I bought it. I've traveled out of country with it, take it with me to the pool, it's survived through all. I love it.

    Think is a perfect cam and have tons of features for the price but at the same time it can be a problem for an "average user", I mean is not so hard to use it but if you need a good pic fast in a specific condition can be a trouble to find what are you looking for...

    GREAT little camera!, Lisa in CT
    This is a GREAT little camera! I bought it used and it has performed wonderfully everyday since! It's very easy to use. I use it mainly for shots & closeups of items for ebay & Etsy. As long as you have some nice natural lighting, your pictures will come out great. The flash works well too, but for my purposes, I don't like a flash reflection in the subject. I highly recommend this little gem!

    Good entry level camera and comes with the novelty of the forward facing screen, but that's about it. Nothing spectacular. Good for the price point.

    I bought this my first year of college back in 2011 and I've had it ever since! It has gone through several uses and travel bags and still works like a charm! Battery life is still amazing too! DEFINITELY worth it.

    Replacement Rating based on Amazing Customer Service from this company!!!, Terri L McFarland
    Verified Purchase(
    I rated this item the other day saying that I was happy with the camera, but I was disappointed because the packaging looked like tape had ripped off portions of the picture on the outer box. Not really a big deal, but since it was a gift so I was disappointed...HOWEVER, I was so pleasantly surprised, that the company actually called me and offered to send a replacement box! They gave me the best customer service I've had in a long time! I can't say enough about how great they were to me. I would definitely make many purchases from this company. Amazing!
