Summary: This camera is only good for very limited use. Self photography only, there is no viewfinder on it and if you are outside in bright sunshine....like on your summer vacation for example, you cannot see anything in the lcd screens. It is only useful indoors or in very overcast skies. Hugely disappointing camera.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, no viewfinder and cannot see the potential image i
Summary: Samsung always seems to be the first one out with cutting edge features; however, I would rather have them focus on the quality of the camera, lens, and photo quality instead of sneaking in these "dual view" gimmicky features. The product is very glitchy, and cannot complete the most simple functions. For example, if you are taking a video and you zoom in, the audio cuts out til the zooming is complete.
Pros: Bright display
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, bad photoes
Summary: Four months after purchased, the shuttle door does not even open and/or close completely. Also, the front LCD does not work anymore, mixed black line when turn on. Just returned to Samsung for one year warranty service yesterday.
Summary: I've captured some great moments with my camera....when it works. I will be sending it back again this week for the 3rd time for the same problem: The lens will stop opening and it will not turn off unless the battery is removed. Frustrated is not even the word to describe not having my camera for weddings, birthdays, and Thanksgiving.
Summary: I've owned both the TL225 and the TL220 (this review applies to both in that they are so similar) in the past 9 months and have had the same problems with each model. The main problem is that each camera has displayed "stuck" pixels in every picture taken. The location and color of these pixels varies, but I've owned four models and they've all displayed this problem. The pixels are usually red or green, and typically appear around the center of the picture.
Summary: I loved the idea of the LCD on the front since my husband and I travel frequently-- but after a month of using it I realized there were several things that really bugged me about this camera. 1) on one hand the touch screen is so awesome...until we tried to actually use the front LCD screen and take our photo together-- then it always seems no matter where you touch it...
Puzzled doesn't quite describe how I feel about Samsung....

Summary: I'm a Canon person and just about all of my compact cameras have been Canon or Nikon. (I must have owned a dozen in the past decade). I got tired of my newest Canon and wanted to try something different. I've been very satisfied with Canon and it's consistent quality, but the fact remains that other than cosmetic changes and the continued increase in resolution (megapixels), very little is left to be desired by gadget lovers out there.
Summary: With roughly 3.8 gazillion arm's length self portraits posted on Facebook, it's amazing that Samsung is the only manufacturer to put a screen on the FRONT of the camera. Pure genius. They must have a rock-solid patent claim. If you want to eliminate the aiming guesswork and see yourself while taking an "armie" (as my GF so eloquently calls it), then the Samsung TL 220 & 225 are presently the only game in town.
