The Samsung PL 120 is a simple to use point and shoot compact camera that comes with dual LCD screen. Just like other traditional compact cameras there is a LCD screen on the back side plus another smaller one in the front. The front LCD screen is for, any guesses, yes.. for self images.
How many times have you tried getting a self photograph from a compact camera without any assistance? It would have taken few attempts before getting that perfect shot. The camera manufactures have realized this and are now coming with new models like the PL 120 that makes taking self portrait shots easier.
In fact if you can wait for some more weeks or months you should go in for the Samsung MV800 MultiView camera that comes with only one LCD screen but it is flip-able. But then the MV800 is also costly as it has got much better features as compared with the PL 120.

Samsung PL 120 reviews
The 14.2 megapixel resolution is the main highlight along with dual LCD view screens. Now self shots cannot get easier than this. A must buy for those who are buying a camera for the first time or those who are planning to upgrade it, and all these at an unbelievable cost.
