Samsung outs the SL720 & SL502: 720p-shooting, 12.2 MP digicams


Samsung has some budget digital cameras for ya. The pair packs the same 12.2 MP sensor along with 5x optical zoom. What sets them apart however is that the PL70 is equipped with a 28mm wide angle lens where the PF55 has a standard 35mm lens. Plus the PL70 has digital and optical image stabilization instead of the PL55’s digital stabilization. And if that wasn’t enough, the SL720 can shoot 720p video. (get it, 720?)

The cameras come with the standard assortment of in-camera effects like face recognition, blink detection, and a feature called Smart Folders that sorts the pics by different filters. Expect the pair to be available this coming August. The SL720 will retail for $229 and the SL502 for $150.
