Samsung PL70 and PL55

(Updated with US info at bottom) Samsung on Tuesday launched a pair of PL series compact cameras intended for longer-range shooting. Both the PL70 and PL55 have 12.2-megapixel sensors and 5X optical zoom lenses that aid in composing more distant shots. The PL70 is the most advanced and includes a 28mm wide-angle lens, 720p video recording and optical image stabilization; the PL55 makes do with a more common 35mm lens, standard definition video and software-based stabilization.

Either camera has face detection with recognition, fully automatic scene selection, smile detection and a specific-to-Samsung Smart Album feature that auto-sorts images by the dominant color, aspect ratio or when it was taken. Both are due to ship to Europe in August. In the US, both cameras ship the same month and will see the PL70 rebadged as the SL720 while the PL55 is renamed the SL502. They will sell Stateside for $230 and $150 respectively.
