At it's widest 24mm, it has an aperture of f2.4 making it kind of sluggish and not great for low light circumstances and you may struggle to get a shallow depth of field. You will probably also need to increase your ISO which results in noisy pictures. With the long end, 120mm comes at f5.8 making it pretty sluggish and you would have to set slow shutter speeds.

Samsung TL350 Video details

The highest possible video quality on the Samsung TL350 is 1920 x 1080 and you can save in H.264 format. 1080p quality provides a good balance in quality vs file size but 1080p will not give you any room to crop. The body does not offer a microphone or headphone port so you have got zero control over the sound. It is probably best to get another camera should you require good sound for your video clips.
