Disappointed with the TL240

by B*B on 11/24/2010

I have had the TL240 for 5 months. Had the opportunity to fully test it out in auto, scenes and it's limited manual settings. Overall, it's an OK camera. The camera shot quality has been hit or miss. Even in full daylight many of the photos are blurred and out of focus. Having used a variety of the camera settings, ISO settings as well as the point and Shoot, Auto setting, I an unable to get consistently good photos with the camera. I have the same experience with night shots as well. Not sure why they chose a micro SD as there seems to be plenty of camera here to use a standard or mini SD. On the plus side, the touch screen and user interface is very good. Intuitive and easy to navigate, this is the best thing about the camera. The scene settings are convenient and there are many to choose from. The camera is light and easy to carry around. The zoom function is smooth and fairly quick. Overall, the lack of quality and consistency with the camera has outweighed the positives of the camera. I am not impressed with the TL240 and it will be short lived in my camera stock.

Product Overview

Samsung proudly introduces another in its line of leading edge digital camera technology. The Samsung TL240 lets you see every scene in a completely new and exciting way. A host of top-ranked features and technologies, turns this camera into a true must-have. And the small, handheld size makes it easy to take it with you everywhere you go.

3.5" WVGA Full Touch Screen TFT
The TL240 offers simple navigation, at the tip of your finger. The rear LCD screen allows you to scroll quickly through all menus, and easily access your photo library. The Haptic vibration response registers your choices. Quickly access and use the camera's key features with either a simple finger tap or hand gesture, using the revolutionary new Gesture UI.

7x Optical Zoom
Get closer to the action with a 7x optical zoom. A special coating on both sides of the lenses delivers realistic color and prevents distortion.

31mm Wide Angle Lens

The TL240's 31mm wide angle lens plus 7x optical zoom gives you a wider shooting range from a shorter distance with more flexibility than 35mm cameras. Capture images of beautiful landscapes, entire wedding parties and skyscrapers without having to back up to get the shot. The precisely cut 31mm optical lens delivers clear, clean images with even resolution from center to edges. Each lens surface is multi-coated to minimize ghosting or flaring for a great shot every time.

Dual Image Stabilization

The Advanced Dual Image Stabilization (IS) feature allows you to capture crystal-clear, blur-free shots without using a flash or tripod. The TL210's Advanced Dual IS combines both Optical and Digital Image Stabilizers to produce sharp images without the noise commonly found in other cameras. The optical IS compensates for hand trembling by shifting the lens in the opposite direction. When using Optical IS isn't quite enough, the Digital IS automatically takes over to ensure blur-free images.

Smart Auto 2.0

Take professional-looking photos with Samsung's Smart Auto feature. Smart Auto analyzes key elements of your composition such as color, brightness, motion and subject; then automatically adjusts to take the perfect shot. So you never have to worry about your photos being washed out, too dark or out of focus. Smart Auto has 16 different preset modes, for a variety of settings. These modes can be bypassed for manual control.

14 Megapixel Resolution

Samsung's TL240 comes fully equipped with a true color-filtered 14 megapixel CCD and boasts a powerful 7x optical zoom, guaranteeing some of the sharpest images available. This camera also produces incredibly detailed images which can be used for printing poster-sized photos.

HD Movies

Record movies in the palm of your hand. The TL240 is like having a compact HD video camera that also takes professional-grade photos. You can record HD video in 1280x720p resolution at 30 frames per second. The H.264 format also allows you to record twice as much as an MP4 and four times more than an MJPEG - the format used in many other digital cameras - and delivers a much higher video and sound quality.
