Samsung PL150 or Samsung ST550?

was initially intending to get another Canon digicam, cuz i've always preferred Canon, due to its photo quality. but the few newer models, such as the Ixus 120, 130 and 210 doesnt look exactly attractive aside from the wide range of colours, and everyone around me tells me the shape is weird and it doesnt look nice.

and so i was recommended to look at the new Samsung digicam, which has 2-way screens~! had initially planned on getting the Samsung ST550. Til today! i caught sight of a new model~ Samsung PL150.

Its almost similar to the ST550 in terms of specifcations, except that the ST550 has a touch screen LCD, while the PL150 doesnt.

Plus the PL150 doesnt have the Super Macro, and the screen is slightly smaller compared to the ST550. also there is some slight improvement on the PL 150 compared to the ST550, such as the Optical zoom and Megapixels!!

But the PL150 has its special features as well. It has the Couple Shot, Fisheye, vignetting, smart filter and miniature effect, while the older ST550 doesnt! and also the face recognition feature! which i aint too sure if ST550 has the same feature or not.

now having a headache as to which to get, as each has its pros and cons! gosh! this is difficult!! cant i have a best of both worlds in 1 camera!! =(

I'm getting Samsung PL150 later too. Same situation as you, target ST550 but saw PL150. A more affordable option for me.

Samsung PL150 priced at $399
Samsung ST550 priced at $549

Difference of $150
= less 4GB memory
= less camera skin?
= less 0.5" LCD screen
= less touch screen
= more features
= more shooting mode
= more pixel and zoom

Hey where you guys get your PL150 at $349 with 2x 8gb mem?? How about the no. of batteries?

Yuriko said...

Hi LyNnE, i got mine at the IT show ya. With 1 Extra battery.

You can probably wait for the next IT/PC show and check it out? They may have better promotions by then.

I think Harvey norman all those selling more expensive. Im not too sure. But you can check it out anyway. :)

Here in the UK, I can get the PL150 for £115 and the ST550 for £135. It's only £20 difference so not sure which one I'll go for...

Yuriko said...

Hi Anonymous,

well then it would really depends on your personal preference. If you would prefer a fully touch screen and nicer looking camera, i would suggest you get the ST550. It certainly looks better and the graphics seems better and clearer as well!

But i personally didnt like a fully touch screen one. that explains why i bought the PL150 for myself instead. =)

Both functions are really almost similar =)
