Hey! You should know that Samsung has released a newer version of this product: the Samsung PL170.

Samsung DualView TL210

B
We've given the TL210 a grade of B.

Editor's Review

The TL210 is one of Samsung's second-generation DualView models, which feature an LCD screen on both sides of the camera for easier self-portraits. The front-LCD feature was well-executed on the TL210's predecessors, though the image quality and performance was just OK. This model does away with the touchscreen, which is fine by us. Initial impressions are good overall, with the included plethora of features outweighing the average image quality. It's been replaced by a newer model and is seeing some of the late-life overpricing that comes with the territory, so we're knocking it down a handful of points and recommending that you buy a newer DualView model, like the PL170 listed at the top of the page.

Nice pictures before the dust storm (Greg Threlfall — 03/10/2011)
We purchased this camera (known as the PL150 in Australia) to take with us on a holiday in Europe. We chose this camera specifically for the front screen so as to take lots of images with us and tourist icons in background. We wanted a small camera that could be hidden in a pocket and brought out at the appropriate time. The camera performed satisfactorily for us until about 3 weeks of our 6 week holiday when ingress of dust really started to impact on picture quality and continued to worsen. And we're not talking a couple of specs - I mean dozens of spots! Eventually it got so bad we purchased a Panasonic DZ-08 in the UK (great camera by the way). On return to Australia we tried to have the camera fixed but Samsung refused saying ingress of dust is not covered under warranty. Eventually I pulled the back off and removed the CCD assembly and cleaned with optical wash, but there is so much dust inside it contaminates very quickly again. Great camera, but disappointed by the dust problem. More than enough options for the tourist although I often would forget what setting I'd used for the previous photo and take a scene using the wrong settings - but that's just me. The self timer showing on the front screen counting down was good too. Often I'd accidently move the settings wheel when removing the camera from my pocket and end up taking photos in a totally wrong setting - which was annoying.
