Samsung PL200 Budget Camera for $180

The new budget compact camera from Samsung, the PL200, retails for $180 and it comes with 14.2 megapixels, a 3.0-inch LCD screen and a 7X image stabilized zoom lens that goes from 31mm at wide angle to 217mm in telephoto.

The PL200 also shoots 720p HD video at 30 frames-per-second in H.264 format, which should give users three times more recording capacity than MJPEG video.

“The PL200 is the ideal digital camera for those who value simplicity but also long for a more immersive digital imaging experience,” said Reid Sullivan, senior vice president of Mobile Entertainment Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “With the PL200, consumers can experience the versatility offered by more advanced digital cameras, along with a comprehensive suite of automatic controls, allowing them to step up to the next level of digital camera without stepping outside of their comfort zone.”
