On first impressions, the Samsung PL150 isn't the sleekest compact on the market. That's not to say it's not pocketable, but it's certainly not going to win any beauty competitions. On the plus side, its bulky exterior also houses a...

One of the most exciting compact cameras I have ever tested was Samsung’s ST550, with its massive 3.5-inch touchscreen and 1.5-inch front-facing screen for self-shooting (of the photographic, and not the Tyler Durden variety).The PL150 is,...

It's not easy to make a compact camera stand out from the crowd these days. There are over a dozen main manufacturers, dozens more minor ones, and nearly all of them have an extensive range of models, giving the poor bewildered consumer...

This is a small – almost dainty – digital camera that will easily fit in a pocket or purse. It is predominately black with certain silvered buttons and a grey band along the top and one side. I would even consider it...

The Samsung PL150 brings the clever DualView technology from last year's first generation cameras to a much wider audience thanks to its very competitive price, although image quality isn't such a strong point thanks to unwanted noise at...

The PL150 isn't quite as good as the ST550, so we'd recommend stretching that little bit more if the second screen fits your needs....

What's going on with the Samsung PL150's lens? We're used to seeing some drop-off in sharpness at full zoom, but this is much more serious and undermines the value of the whole camera. That's a shame, because the PL150's twin...

For its happy snap fun, overall convenience and undeniable ingenuity, the Samsung PL 150 is well worth its reasonable RRP $299.00 price tag.This delightfully simple but effective unit hosts some 12.4megapixels, a decent 5x optical zoom and of...

The PL150 is another dual-screen camera from Samsung, but doesn't take better photos than the earlier ST550. For the price though, it's an appealing entry into this novelty...

Fidusen er smart nok – nu kan du få dig selv med på billedet og beskære det præcist. Du holder bare kameraet op og kan se dig selv på den lille skærm. Skal du skyde normalt, er der en 3” skærm på...

International Review By PC-tidningen on 60

Det försöker Samsung göra någonting åt med nya PL150 genom att placera en andra skärm bredvid linsen, så att den som fotograferar kan ta bra bilder och vara med själv.Det kanske låter fånigt, men faktum...
