Summary: You can take pictures of your self and see what you are doing before you take it. I use this on trips with my 4 year old son. I like to take pictures of us together. this has a lcd monitor on the front and back of the camera. Takes GREAT stills, flash is very efective in low light, records 1080 HD video comes with built in battery. You just need a micro sd card.
Summary: I had one of these when they first came out and paid 300 bucks for it. It was stolen from me so I bought another. These are some seriously cool cameras! The front LCD makes taking self shots a breeze and the touch screen controls are idiot proof. The TL220 takes great pictures in all conditions and the video is impressive for a camera also. I doubt you will find one for 79 bucks like I did but even at 200 these are a deal.
Excerpt: If you ask me, this is the only camera to buy. It is small and has been on every news show as the hottest new gadget to buy. As far as I know it is still the only brand that allows you to see yourself before taking self portraits. I have nothing bad to say about this camera. Buy it!
Excerpt: My husband bought me this camera before our vacation in June so we had more of a compact camera that would be easier to carry. he found a good one. he can fit it in his pockets of his hsourts or pants and it's so fun to use. the dual viewing is so fun and easy to use so you can take pictures together with the camera backwards. it takes good pictures and zooms in really good. this is a handy little camera with lots of features on it to use to make pictures more fun.
Excerpt: Great camera! Prior to this camera, I have three cameras and after purchasing the TL220, this camera has outperformed my Kodak Z712 IS and my Nikon. The facial recognition is unbelievable, and I like the way it adapts in various lighting conditions. The settings, if you're an avid camera user, are easy to manage, and the screen settings are fun. It's very light weight, I can take it on the go, and I can tuck it in my pocket or purse with ease.
Summary: The camera is high quality and takes terrific pictures. I bought this as a gift for someone and they never leave home without it. This is a great choice if you are looking for a camera that can take great pictures and the front camera is a good idea for those who are nervous about asking people to take their picture,you can do it yourself with that feature and the countdown is another cool feature as well.
