Samsung's TL500 Digital Camera (Black) is their most ambitious point-and-shoot yet: a 10-megapixel camera with a F1.8-2.4 Schneider-KREUZNACH 35mm equivalent 24-72mm lens that is one of the fastest and one of the widest lenses in this category. This gives the TL500 a decided edge in shooting under low-light conditions and provides a more professional look for your photos (the 24mm lens is a workhorse for many professionals, but rarely found in this class of camera). Coupled with ISO ratings stretching up to 3200 and the Dual Image Stabilization system, the TL500 can handle almost any situation that you encounter.

In addition to a wide range of shooting and focusing modes, creative color effects (Sketch, Defog, Soft, Vivid, Forest, Retro, Cool, Calm, Classic, Negative, Custom RGB), automatic optimized settings for common situations (Night, Portrait, Fireworks, Macro, Sunset, Backlight, etc.), and a "smart" filter that gives you fish-eye, vignetting, and "miniature" effects; the TL500 gives you professional tools like a hotshoe for an auxiliary flash (in addition to the built-in flash), plus RAW and JPEG shooting capability for getting the absolute best from your photographs.

A 3" AMOLED VGA rotating display makes composing and playback a pleasure. The TL500 also features Single Image, Thumbnails, Multi-slide show, and Smart Album playback options, and in-camera editing options. And, you can shoot video at 15 or 30 FPS at up to 640x480 resolution. 

High-Quality Optics and Images

An ultra-fast f/1.8 lens allows photographers to take better photos in low light, and delivers shallow depth-of-field, giving them the ability to blur the background of their images. The new high-performance 1/1.7" CCD sensor is larger than sensors typically found in compact digital cameras, and high sensitivity (max ISO 3200), together with Samsung's imaging processor, ensures that the TL500 can capture high-quality images, regardless of the lighting environment. The 24-72mm (35mm equivalent) ultra-wide 3x optical zoom lens allows photographers to capture more of a scene, from a beautiful landscape to groups of friends or family.

Advanced Options

The TL500 supports RAW as well as JPEG files, giving photographers full control over their images with shutter priority, aperture priority and full manual shooting modes. A photographer can experiment with features such as slower shutter speeds and depth-of-field; for those who prefer convenience over manual controls, the TL500 offers Samsung's Smart Auto (Still & Movie) scene recognition technology. Operational for video recording (640x480/30fps/H.264) and still photos, this feature analyzes a scene and automatically selects the appropriate settings for the best results possible--it's effortless and users don't have to sacrifice image quality for simplicity.

Shooting Modes

The TL500 has a wide variety of shooting modes available, including color style options like Soft, Vivid, Retro, Cool Calm, Classic, Negative, and Custom RGB; Smart Mode, which recognizes and optimizes settings for common situations like Landscape, Fireworks, Night Portrait, Macro, Beach, Snow, Backlit Portrait, Tripod, Sunset, Dawn, etc.; and Smart Filter, which can give you the look of a fish-eye lens, old-fashioned vignetting, and "miniature" effect that makes the scene you shoot look like a miniature model (through selective focus).
