    Samsung has created yet another appealing ultra-compact digital camera that sports their popular Dual View functionality. This unit receives several upgrades over past models, many of which is shares with the ST100. However, the ST600 seems to produce sharper images, and offers a great value for a 14-megapixel digicam.


  • - Samsung also featured Smart Filters (miniature, vignette, fish-eye 1and 2, sketch and defog) to make photos more interesting.
    - Optical zoom is available during video recording but audio is disabled during zooming.
    - There is no shutter speed and aperture-size changing option in the program mode which is a bit disappointing considering the price tag.

    - Poor documentation - doesn't include a paper instruction manual.
    - Lots of zoom potential - makes getting the perfect shot easier.
    - Thin and compact - makes it easy to carry around on trips.

    The front-facing LCD found on the Samsung PL120 indicatesâ?? at least to usâ?? that this is a camera intended for the most casual of casual users, whose most common framing is the cheek-to-cheek B.F.F. self-portrait, bound for Facebook and tagging and commenting and maybe even some scrapbooking at the end of the semester. Yet the performance is nothing to sneeze at. While the PL120 didnâ?? t shock us with amazing score spikes, this Samsung posted solid results consistently.


  • The Samsung PL120 is a camera that can be taken out and about and if it gets damaged then because of the reasonable price it doesn't matter as much. The simple design, while not breaking any new ground, won't make you ashamed to take it out in a crowd. If you're one of these people then you need to take a look at the Samsung PL120.


  • The Samsung PL120 is a camera that can be used by all the family from novice younger users, networking teenagers and proud parents to technophobic grandparents alike. The only problem we can foresee is with people who have larger hands. They probably won't get on with the tiny format or cluttered back. There are a lot of pros to outweigh the cons though.

    Samsung seems to have the Dual View market cornered. These unique models offer a great deal of appeal with features that fit the needs of a wide variety of users; especially for the younger masses. Overall, we enjoyed using the ST700. This model offers competitive image quality and shooting performance, loads of fun exposure modes and filters, along with a competitive price tag of $279 USD or less.


  • The latest dual-screen camera from Samsung offers plenty of bang for your buck, apart from its lackluster touchscreen.


  • The latest dual-screen camera from Samsung offers plenty of bang for your buck, apart from its lacklustre touchscreen.


  • - The casual photographer needs a camera that is easy to carry and easy to use, so compact and ultracompact cameras make the best choice.


  • - The camera’s auto bracketing control is very welcome and a great feature to have built-in to such a camera.


  • - It's also incompatible with practically all of the camera's other features (even the color filters), and it actually takes two successive exposures and pastes them together, so it's completely ineffective when the subject itself is moving.
    - The buttons on the Samsung NV4 are exceedingly small.
    - Image quality is fair, with good detail in subject shots but a hazy quality in wide shots.


  • The Samsung ST30 is most suited to families looking for a budget digital compact camera that is easily pocketed for security and convenience without compromising too much on quality. It's got a decent build so if one of the kids gets hold of it and drops it, there's more chance of the camera withstanding the impact. If you're looking for a budget digital compact camera that produces good pictures then this a camera worth looking at.


  • The Samsung ST30 may not be as feature packed as other cameras, or may not offer as good handling as more expensive cameras, however, the Samsung ST30 (like the Kodak Easyshare Mini) has a number of key qualities that make it appealing for these reasons: It's REALLY small, it's got a really low price, and it looks really cute.


  • If you want a cheap, simple and small digital camera, and you're happy to accept some compromise in terms of features and image quality, the Samsung ST30 is a pretty good option.
