Samsung PL210 review

 

The Samsung PL210 has a plethora of features to boast about and coupled with the 10x optical zoom it definitely looks good on paper.

The Samsung PL210 is meant for casual beginners who need to slip in a camera in their pocket and capture pictures on-the-fly. The 10x zoom is also a great plus. But a lot of small problems mar this camera from being the best easy-to-use camera off the...

Samsung PL210 Digital Compact Camera Review

 

Daniel Bell reviews the Samsung PL210, a high-zoom digital compact camera.

Excellent colour reproduction; Excellent macro images; 10x zoom lens in a small camera; Smart Filters give plenty of creative options; Pleasant portrait images

Lots of noise at the higher end of ISO range

Samsung PL210 Review

 

The Samsung PL210 seems like it's more of an occasion camera than a device that will be able to meet all of your pocket cam needs.

Samsung PL210 Review

 

It was only a few years ago that the idea of a 10x optical zoom in a digital compact camera that was only 19mm deep would be scoffed at as impossible. However, that dream is realised in the Samsung PL210. Along with the 27-270mm focal range, it also...

You can look at the Samsung PL210 in two ways. The first (and arguably the wrong) way is that this is a high spec camera full of top end features such as the 10x optical zoom in an ultra slim body, face recognition and the unique frames. If you look at...

Samsung PL210

 

Pocketable 10x zoom and decent image quality at a slim price

10x zoom in a slim body; Decent sharpness overall

Proprietary AV output; No color modes

It’s harsh to cal the Samsung PL210 a one-trick pony, especially when that one trick is the one thing that users seem to demand most from point-and-shoot cameras: optical zoom in a compact body. In that regard, the PL210 brings the goods, stuffing 10x...

Samsung PL210

 

There are many baby zoomer compacts out on the market these days, offering anything from 15x to 30x zoom. It's into this crowded market segment Samsung is launching the PL210, with a 10x optical zoom lens as its main feature.

Samsung PL210 Camera – Review

 

Samsung's working hard to carve out a place for itself in every aspect of consumer electronics and this includes cameras. The Korean chaebol released a new range of compacts recently including the PL210, sporting an elegant dark charcoal outer casing...

Lots of usable features in a small body ; 10X optical zoom ; Excellent image stabilisation ; Good image quality at low ISOs ; HD 720p video

Slow performance overall ; Auto exposure system makes odd choices at times ; Noisy images at high ISO levels ; Basic software for image editing

Amazon has over 3500 results in their point and shoot digital camera section. It's hard to make waves in a market flooded with competitors.It comes down to three factors when looking at point and shoot cameras : Mega-pixels, optical zoom, and screen size.
