Summary: I bought this camera for $109 for my daughter because she loves the idea of being able to frame pictures that she takes of her friends and herself. For a starter camera, the tl210 has a lot of features that a typical teanager could hope for (and are not on the typical smart phone), including smile and object detection and focus. The 5x zoom is adequate for taking point and shoot pictures of friends, but I would prefer a 15x zoom for outdoor wildlife vacations.
Nice camera with useful features - not usable out of the box

Summary: The prices for TL210s are all over the place from 139 to over 220. Reading the offers usually doesn't tell you what the differences between them are. I just received this 'pink' one. The color is more like a metallic purple, so you guys shouldn't be embarrassed to use it. In the box is the camera, wrist strap, a cd with the manual, a usb cord, a quick start manual, and a wall charger that allows you to charge the camera using the usb cord.
Summary: I'll try not to add to what other people have already written but I will say that the mention of how the sound fades out when you zoom is CORRECT. I really don't get how this could have been overlooked. If anyone knows of a patch let us all know here. I plan to call Samsung to see what their excuse is, and hope they can rectify this issue, but I'm not holding my breath.
Summary: This camera came with more features than what I was expecting. It takes a little bit to get use to, but maybe it was because my last camera purchase came over four years ago! It is almost impossible to take a bad picture with this camera. The front screen is bigger than I thought and you don't have to use it if you don't want to. You will not have to buy batteries for this camera, because it comes with a surprisingly long lasting battery.
Summary: I purchased my Samsung Dualview camera on Oct. 27,2010. I really enjoyed the functions and the user friendly aspects of my camera. The quality of the pictures are excellent. I am very happy with my purchase. My only negative comment would be that the camera has very little red on it. Only the side trim is red so I wouldn't necessarily describe it as a red camera. I also thought it was touch-screen but it's not.
Summary: LOVE the camera so far as I've taken it to a few theme parks in SoCal to understand it prior to the big trip to Australia... one thing I tried just recently is the VIDEO mode on the camera. Picture clarity was pretty good, and the sound came through as if I were there... ALTHOUGH... when you ZOOM in and out the sound cuts out.
Summary: I am pretty happy with this camera. The only con so far, sometimes the green button blinks for a long period and you cant take a picture at that time. I think it might be trying to adjust to the scene, but you can miss that special moment. Also, when the front is in child mode, the pics come out blurry.
Summary: This camera takes great pics and videos, although the zoom during video takes away the audio ( have I got a refurbished one ? ). The LCD in the front is a great feature, probably worth the camera. I have read previous reviews on the short battery life ( the original is 700mah ), and got a package with a spare 1000mah which I have used and never run of battery during a day of vacation.
Summary: I got this camera for my teanage daughter and she just can't stop using it. Her friends keep snapping pictures after pictures and if it survived graduation, prom and camp it will survive at home too. she loves the fact that she can see the image before she takes it and she goes to concerts so with some stars there is no second take.
