Default Reviews : TL500

Found two reviews of the TL500:

and

Samsung are certainly a company to watch .... this is probably going to be
a serious "little" camera!

dbnnet-

I certainly agree with you that Samsung is going to be a company to watch. That factor spurred me to purchase the TL-320, after my very positive experience of using the SL-420 as my E-Bay camera. Samsung cameras have measurably improved.

That is very positive and I believe bodes well for future developments.

i like to see manufacturers producing p&s cameras for photographers. with good feature sets, fast lenses and good build quality. i applaud samsung for doing so, and hope the camera lives up to its feature set.

I like the white GF1 but there's definitely something about brushed metal that gives it the industrial look i like. Kinda like comparing the zune to the ipod touch. The touch is so rounded. The sharper lines of the zune looks much better.I hope the picture quality will keep up with the price and the looks.

The color of the camera is immaterial to me. The key question is how well does it take photos.

Just gone through the link and i think its great review regarding the TL500 i think they had just missed to mentioned about Samsung TL500 the very desirable focal length of 24mm at the wide end.

My TL500 arrived and I've been taking my standard "test" shots. Skin tones and people shots are very good.

Then I photographed my fireplace which is 10 feet wide and carefully lined up the top of the fireplace. Photo showed top to be tilted and the bottom was tilted in the other direction. Is this my fault or a distortion of the camera. I was using auto setting. The basics.

The zoom might not be enough for me now that I've played with some 10x optical zooms.

Sigh .I would say great IQ.

But the architectural distortion would drive me crazy.
