  • Summary: The PL90 also boasts Smart Auto, AF tracking, their Perfect Portrait System, and a built-in USB plug, which hides inside the body until released. This allows for effortless sharing and uploading of photos when connected to your PC and also charges the camera's Li-ion battery at the same time.
  • Pros: Incredibly compact, Easy to use and carry, Wide 4x optical zoom lens, Excellent overall image quality, USB arm is very useful, Good battery life
  • Cons: Slow camera performance, microSD cards are slower, easy to lose and not as common, No HD video capabilities, No AV cable included

  • Excerpt: Samsung seems to be incapable of designing a conventional camera. This one distinguishes itself with a USB plug that swings out of the bottom of the camera – just the thing for PC uploads and charging without a cable or card reader.

  • Conclusion: A very average compact with little new to offer outside of its built-in usb feature. It’s budget price tag may not be low enough to beat out older compact rivals.

  • Conclusion: So will the PL90 have you flipping out, but in a good way? Well, like numerous pocket camcorders the inclusion of a USB arm certainly extends its user-friendly ethos, and tucked away unobtrusively at the bottom you won’t even notice it’s there.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, solid construction, integral USB “arm”, generally user friendly and responsive
  • Cons: microSD card only, optical zoom occasionally sluggish to respond, battery life is just 200 shots

CHIP Online
28 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Bei der Bildqualität schlägt sich die Samsung ganz gut, bei Ausstattung und Geschwindigkeit dagegen gar nicht. Abgesehen vom ausklappbaren USB-Anschluss sprechen daher nur wenige Gründe für die PL90.
  • Pros: Einfache Bedienung, Weitwinkel, Integrierter USB-Stecker
  • Cons: Texturverlust, Rauschen, Nur VGA-Video, Lahmes Arbeitstempo, Kein Bildstabilisator
