It's shaping out to be a big day for new camera introductions. Samsung is up at deck with the PL20 and ES80 pocket cameras that should fit the bill of almost any budget.

The higher-end model of these two entry-level cameras is the 14-megapixel PL20 (pictured above) with a 27mm wide-angle lens, 5x optical zoom, 720p HD movie recording, Smart Auto scene selection, and a rechargeable Li-ion battery.

For consumers looking for a bottom basics camera, the 12-megapixel ES80 (pictured right) should do the trick with 5x optical zoom and some Smart Auto preset functions.
The PL20 will hit the scene first in March for $119.99. The ES80 will follow in April for $99.99. Both will be available in silver, black, pink and tomato red.
