Samsung PL100 Digital Camera

 

Last month I received my first digital camera, it was a Samsung PL100 and I have to say that I liked a lot. First of all, it's very simple to manage since I had no camera experience before and I was able to manipulate it easily. It's also very light...

Samsung PL100 camera is great looking, and besides some little details, it’s pretty good for giving away or making gifts to non professional picture lovers like me.

Review: Samsung PL100

 

This point-and-shoot with dual LCD will satisfy users who like to take self-portraits, but its photo quality isn't the best on the market.

The PL100 has a second LCD on the front and an angled bottom to make self-portraits a snap

The camera feels cheaply made and produces mediocre low-light photos

Not recommended

 

The idea of having front lcd screen is great, you can see yourself for self-portrait, but the quality of pictures it produces is horrible. I'd say below average of compact cameras I've ever used. Not recommended to anyone in my honest opinion...

Not a good Camera

 

I was so happy to finally have a digital camera, my mother bought it for me for graduating college. I had no problem with the camera at first but then, the camera once in awhile makes noises. Every picture I take of children has red eyes, I find the...
