For the price i paid, you cant ask for much more. Size is small enough to put in any pocket and big enough so it feels nice and solid when you are holding it. I really like how Samsung is the only company that uses the single USB cable to charge and...

Size is perfect, not too big or small ; user interface is very pretty and modern, one of the best i seen ; a lot of extra mode that are actually useful like Slideshow w/music, voice memo on still shots, smile detection, facial improvement and so on ;...

The optical image stabilization is not as good as i liked ; Using the dual image stabilization means image quality might suffer as it increase your iso ; samsung tend to made a lot of different models and has different model names depending on the...

The Camera has a large screen, is fairly small and light, good zoom and loaded with features.

The Camera has a large screen, is fairly small and light, 5x zoom and loaded with fancy features. Good battery life. Apparently has anti-shake

I am looking at replacing this camera because ; Half the pictures taken are blurry, not just the object but the whole picture. We take mostly indoor pictures of family around the holidays and our child growing up and half the pictures taken are wasted....

First of all I would like to say I am extremely happy buying this camera. It has all the latest features in it, to name a few face detection, blink detection, smile detection, Intelligence Image etc. It automatically chooses the right mode like...

Easy to use. Zoom enabled for video recording. Smart Album Nice zoom.

No Digital Zoom. No Touch Screen. Not very thin like the Sony T-Series or the Fuji FD Series. No Pouch with the camera. No Memory Card with the camera.

The Samsung PL60 offers a decent set of specs at a good price, throwing in some hi-tech shooting functions and a dash of style too. You might not use all the fancy technology, but you'll get good pictures regardless. If you want a wideangle zoom,...

Smart and stylish ; Decent control layout ; Handy USB charging system ; Good value for money

Weak definition past ISO 400 ; Lacks a wideangle zoom

Conclusion You can't expect cutting-edge technology at this price, so it's all down to the balance between specs, build quality, handling and pictures, and the Samsung PL60 comes out pretty well in all four areas. Check out Panasonic's lower-end Lumix...

Review: Samsung PL60

 

This easy-to-use compact is an affordable option for users who want a no-frills digicam.

Smart and stylish; decent control layout; handy USB charging system; good value for money

Lossy details in pictures taken at ISO 400; lacks wide-angle zoom lens

The Samsung PL60 offers a decent set of specs at a good price, throwing in some high-tech shooting functions and a dash of style. You may not use all the fancy technology, but you'll get good pictures regardless.

Does no frills equal no thrills with this model?

Not the smallest of compacts but packed with useful and accessible features. Perfect for beginner to intermediate photographers who want a simple point and shoot camera that delivers decent images.
