Samsung ES15

Samsung has just launched four cameras including a ES15 budget model and the stylish 12Mp IT100.

The ES is Samsung's new budget range of cameras. Earlier this month, we announced the launch of the ES10. The ES15 now joins the range, and will be available in April, costing about £79. 

It comes with a 3x optical zoom lens, face detection and beauty mode, which is designed to alter skin tone to a more pleasing appearance. The camera comes in a range of colours, including pink.

The IT100 features a 28-140mm lens and face detection. The IT100 also has blink detection, where the camera takes a series of shots when it detects closed eyes so you end up with a photo of a subject with their eyes open. It also features a beauty mode. 

The IT100 will cost about £229 when it hits the shops in April this year.

Our Which? reviews of digital cameras feature more than 230 models.

PL65 and PL50

These two cameras look similar at first glance, but the PL65 has more features. It has 12Mp and optical image stabilisation (OIS) for sharper pictures, whereas the P50 lacks OIS and offers just 10Mp. Both cameras come in a range of colours, including pink.

Available in March, the PL65 will cost around £179, the PL50 around £119.

Christopher Christoforou, Which? digital cameras expert, said: ‘While none of these cameras make any huge innovative breakthroughs in terms of specification, we look forward to testing them fully as they are well priced compared with the opposition and good looking.'
