Samsung DualView TL205

 

Samsung's DualView cameras remain the best choice for people who shoot a lot of self-portraits. Not necessarily because they take great photos, but because their secondary front LCD makes it very easy to see just what you're shooting--stills or...

The Samsung DualView TL205 has a second LCD up front and an angled bottom to make self-portraits a snap.

The Samsung DualView TL205 feels cheaply made and produces mediocre low-light photos.

The Samsung DualView TL205's front LCD and low price make it a decent choice for self-portrait-loving photographers on a budget.

"A perfect camera for parties and get togethers!"

 

It's a great product by Samsung and perfect for anybody who likes to take massive amount of picture at parties. Great when you want to take a picture with another person and their is no one else to take it for you. I personally love the design and the...

Innovative, nicely designed, dual screen, uses microSD

have to charge battery through camera (but you could buy a charger that goes straight to the batter), feels a tad light

"Very nice pictures, simple, but rather fragile"

 

Overall, it is a very nice camera. I highly recommend it for someone who wants something that takes nice pictures without a whole lot of effort or money. However, be careful with it because it is a bit fragile

It took very nice pictures once you learned how to focus it right. The front LCD was nice for self-portraits or for getting the attention of babies.

It broke pretty easily and the different settings didn't exactly work as well as I thought they would. Also, brightly colored objects were difficult to take quality pictures of.

A lot better than expected.

 

I got my high end Canon stolen in the airport while coming to Korea, and as I wasn't willing to get to a completely new country without a camera so I bought the cheapest they had in the airplane. I've been using it for some time now as a secondary...

Unexpected acceptable photo quality ; Useful front LCD ; Cheap ; Lightweight

Cheap plastic construction ; Samsung lens instead of better Schneider-Kreuznach found in many other Samsung cameras ; Ridiculous set of features when compared with other cheap Samsung cameras ; CCD sensor consumes lots of power from the tiny battery

"Best camera ever"

 

I took this camera to Hawaii for a week and got some great shots of the ocean,(the intelligent auto scene recognition made this possible),Dolphins jumping out of the water, and great shots of fire dancers. There is no lag time so I always got the shots...

Clear pictures in low light, easy to navigate menu, Rechargable long lasting battery, intelligent auto scene recognition recognizes a scene and changes camera settings instantly, well made, small enough to fit in my shirt pocket.

More zoom would be nice.

"only nice thing about this camera is the dual screen."

 

i would say tht the cheaper camere (samsung SL420) is alot better than this one. when i want to view a picture it takes about 5 secs for it to turn on. this camera jst makes me mad. the flash is ALWAYS off. idk how to set it so tht it would be on all...

dual screen is cool. i love the couple shot. quality is ok at times. lots of options

beauty shot doesnt detect the face. (doesnt work at all) its blurry even if the camera moves a little. the night shot doesnt work that great. you can only do some options at a time. and so on

Poorly constructed. Cheap Feel. LAG LAG LAG

 

Its a cheaply made, poorly constructed entry level camera. I purchased it on sale and returned it the very next morning. The dual screens are one of the few pros to this unit. I cant believe the lag in between taking pics. No rapid fire with this. The...

Not too much.. But the obviously the Dual screens are nice.. It has a lot of different photo settings. Ehh, thats about it

Very cheap feel. Buttons are inconsistent. Only click sometimes. Battery door is way to flimsy and easily opened. Does not come with a battery charger. Must charge thru the camera itself. IT LAGS HORRIBLE. Between viewing pics and between taking them
