I bought this camera because of its dual LCD feature. I had never seen such a add-on before in digital cameras... Well, I am not quiet sure How frequently I may use the front LCD (To take my own pictures??!!) The Picture quality is just fabilous, the clarity and colour resolution is just wonderful. the features are very easy to use. I didn't even check the user manual before using the most options. Having praised the product, There is one mistake in the Product info on BUY.COM website. The specifications say that the camera needs a SD or SDHC card for external memory. But it is not true, it actually has a microSD card slot and only accepts a microSD card. I bought the camera and the SDHC card together, and ended up having a SDHC card which wont go with the camera. I informed BUY about the info glitch, but they have not taken any action so far.... the specifications on the page still stay the same. Good for BUY.COM, now they are selling both SD and micro SD cards and making the buck. But for the Camera I give good 5 stars!!

I bought this camera about a month ago as an alternative to my Kodak 10 MegaPixel camera (due to it's much smaller size). I have been very happy with the quality of the pictures so far. The slim design is great for taking the camera along with you on trips and avoiding feeling like a "tourist". The dual LCD is a nice feature, although I probably will not use the front LCD very often it is a nice thing to have just in case. The touch screen is quick to respond and allows the rest of the camera to have a clean look. This camera is very easy to use, mainly having 3 major buttons (on/off) (one to take the picture) & (zoom). The camera is quick to take pictures which seems to greatly reduce blurry images. I have not used the camera to record any movie clips at this point, but will in the future. The camera comes with a cord which plug directly into the camera for easy charging. So far, I have been very happy with the battery life (I have not charged it since the initial charge) although I don't use it everyday either. I have taken about 250 pictures to date. The TL220 has a lot of features although not too many as to make it too complicated to use. I used it straight out of the box without going through the tutorial. As to date, it is another great Samsung product! Great product for the price tag. 5 out of 5 from me!

Product Overview

Picture yourself in the Fun! Samsung proudly introduces a new milestone in digital camera technology. The Samsung DualView Camera with a 1.5" front LCD screen - a revolutionary feature in the industry- lets you take part in capturing the moment like never before. The Samsung DualView Camera lets you see every scene in a completely new and exciting way. Just use the front LCD screen, and set up the perfect shot-with you in it-time after time. A host of top-ranked features and technologies, from the 4.6x / 27mm Schneider lens to the 3" Touch Screen with "haptic" technology, turns this camera into a true must-have. And the small, handheld size makes it easy to take it with you everywhere you go.

Front and Back LCD Screens
Turn every scene into a photo op - starring you! The 1.5" Front LCD Screen lets you get out from behind the camera and get in the shot. You can perfectly frame yourself in the picture, quick and easy. Never miss another once-in-a-lifetime moment. With Child Mode, you can keep small children's attention through built-in animations that captures those special expressions only kids can make. The Countdown Timer lets you coordinate any shot perfectly.



Rear LCD Touch Screen
The TL220 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.



Smart Auto
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 14 different preset modes, for a variety of settings. These modes can be bypassed for manual control.



12.2 Megapixel Resolution
Samsung's TL220 comes fully equipped with a true color-filtered 12.2 megapixel CCD and boasts a powerful 4.6x 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.



27mm WIDE Angle lens
The TL220's 27mm wide angle lens plus 4.6x 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 27mm optical lens from Schneider-KREUZNACH 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.



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 TL220'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.



HD Movies
Record movies in the palm of your hand. The TL220 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, direct to the SD card. The H.264 format also allows you to record twice as much as an MP4 and four times more than an MJPG- the format used in many other digital cameras , and delivers a much higher video and sound quality.



Recycle bin
Accidents happen. But now that shot you didn't really mean to delete is saved in the TL220's Recycle Bin. You can rest easy, because every shot is automatically stored in a temporary folder just in case you have second thoughts.

Smart Album
Samsung's Smart Album feature lets you quickly scroll through your entire image library and organize images a multitude of ways, including; Favorite, Face, Color, Content (photos, videos, voice) and Week.

Frame Guide
Not everyone takes pictures as well as you. Until now. The TL200's Frame Guide let's you set up the shot you want. Then just hand it off to a friend and your frame guide is there to follow. All you have to do is smile.

Perfect Portrait System
With our unique Perfect Portrait system.you can get beautiful portrait shots in every condition and moment.
