Editor's Review

Samsung keeps running with their DualView series, releasing the PL170 and two other models at CES 2011. These cameras seem to be pretty popular with consumers, since they help users actually frame self-portraits -- it's much more reliable than the old point-and-pray method. The PL170 is similar to the flagship ST700 model, except that the PL170 features a standard 3-inch LCD rather than a 3-inch touchscreen, and the front LCD is a smaller 1.5-inch screen. Otherwise, it's an ample 720p-filming, 26mm-wide 5x-zooming point-and-shoot for a reasonable $199. Check out our review of the PL120.
