Samsung PL210 Digital Camera Review

The PL210 rings in at under $200 with a pocket-friendly size and 10x optical zoom. Sound like the ideal camera?

Introduction

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 equivalent of a 27-270mm zoom range. The most impressive slimming done on the PL210 may be on its price, however, as it rings up at under $200 total. We found it didn't offer performance that rose above its peers in any single category, but for those looking for a slim camera with a great deal of zoom, the Samsung PL210 may fit just fine.
