Samsung PL210 Digital Camera Review

 

The Samsung PL210 is marketed as the slimmest 10x optical zoom camera on the market. At 19.7mm thick, we can't really argue with the claim, as it easily slots into the front pocket on a pair of jeans, with a lens that telescopes out to give it the...

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...

The Samsung PL210 has a simple setup while boasting some impressive specs – namely, it's 10x optical zoom and wide angle lens. The camera performs admirably for a pocket cam, but touting itself as a supremely thin design housing big capabilities is a...

10x optical zoom is surprising for its size and price ; Art filters outdo many competitors ; Simple interface on the back of the camera

Chassis has a low quality, unsturdy feel ; Navigating manual controls is somewhat difficult and isn’t a short process ; Slow AF ; Some of the Smart settings are disappointing ; Uses a microSD card versus standard SD card – more computers feature SD...

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 14 Megapixel Digital Camera

 

Samsung's blurb has answered the three big questions, and provided us some mouth watering details about what this compact beauty can do. I'm interested to see how it performs, often these point and shoots fail to deliver where it counts. As a former...

The box?contents?are what you should have come to expect from a small digital camera. You have a wrist strap, a battery, charger, and data cable

Excellent camera

 

Takes great pictures. Wish it came with more internal memory, but I did read the specs and ordered a 32G memory card at the same time. Worth the money.

The storage is no good but microSD cards are not expensive so I would recommend it to others.
