Samsung PL200 - digital camera review

 

Just about every camera manufacturer has a point-and-shoot with a zoom lens that's longer than the 3x you'll find on entry-level models, but shorter than bulkier and more expensive 10x zoom models. They're in-betweeners if you will, and Samsung's PL200...

The Samsung PL200 is easy to use and has a large LCD and good photo quality for its class.

The Samsung PL200's lens isn't as long or wide as competing models. It also has a pretty short battery life and requires a proprietary cable for charging.

A simple ultracompact with a long lens, the Samsung PL200 isn't a standout, but shouldn't be overlooked either.

Samsung PL200 Review

 

Samsung has put together a great compact digicam that offers appealing features and performance with a price tag that is very easy on the wallet. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Well built ; Comfortable control layout ; Captures pleasing 14-megapixel photos ; Good photo quality up to ISO 800 ; Smart Auto produces great results ; Great bang for your buck

Lens starts at 31mm (equivalent), which might cause some headaches when framing indoors ; ISO 1600 and 3200 are not really usable ; Vertical banding issues in movie mode

Samsung PL200 – Nothing special about it

 

Samsung PL200 doesn't come with anything special for the speedy performance or shooting options but then it is not appropriate to expect something out of the box from every point and zoom camera. The features are basic and the main benefit here is that...

LOVE THIS CAMERA

 

This is by far the best camera I ever had. I have seen far pricier cameras that do not offer the features or clarity of picture this brand does. The smart button makes picture taking sooooo easy, but many other features are available for the more...

Samsung PL200

 

Every thing about this PL200 is first class,I have used other cameras for years and this is a good buy,small,fits pocket,fit to belt with a case,and easy to pick up and use.Buy it and try it.

Only bad point is the poor book of instructions to start you off,you have to go to your disc and laptop to find out what you require to get to the complete workings,for a first timer this is bad,other makers do a better type of instuctions than this...
