Summary: I've had nothing but problems with this camera since I got it. I've had it pretty much since it came out and have only been able to use it a hand full of times. Since I got it when it was brand new I paid full price and totally regret it. I definitely have not gotten my moneys worth out of it. I had to send it in right when I got it to have it repaired and have barely been able to use it since then. When I take pictures now I'd rather use a friend's cheap camera.
Summary: First, the pictures are usually out of focus regardless to the settings (Auto, Smart Auto,...) Second, it heats up after shooting my pictures in raw or when recording video. Third, the battery life is incredibly low. Fourth, the touch LCD screen started showing black lines in the first week. I've returned it and Amazon paid a refund.
Awful Camera, Stay Away of this camera it's worst than a TOY
2 September 2010
Summary: I'm an aficionado to photography. In my experience i have used Nikon, Canon even Kodak. Recently my sister asked me to buy this Samsung because she was travelling to Paris and wanted to use the "front screen" feature to take herself pictures. My family also traveled and as i had an old canon powershot G7 i decided to left it in the house to experience this brand new modern Samsung.
Summary: My camera is only three months old, after only having it for about a month the camera was freezing when I would review pictures. Now the camera doesn't work at all!!! By far the worst camera I have ever had!
Summary: I selected the TL225 as I take a lot of self portraits with my young daughter. I had read many reviews however warning of a problem with a non-retracting lens - this is how the camera arrived. Samsung offered to review it for service and likey replace it in 2-3 weeks - as I needed the camera now and the "known" defect was obvious right out of the box I suggested they rush the process - they said no.
Summary: Do not waste your money ! Go for KODAK half price better quality , touch screen and front display are the only things that make you buy this junk ! If you own this do not try to clean the lens . All the dust and debree will be collected under the "lens protector screen" impossible to clean , NOT SUPPORTED BY WARRANTY, shame ! Very slow , all adjustments auto, picture quality BAD , nice video but not very good.Stay Away !
