Good little camera, but slow

  • Summary: I received this as a Christmas gift from my boyfriend because of it's ability to take self pictures more easily. Admittingly, this is quite an awesome feature. However, I have grown to love Sony Cybershots. I have previously owned the DSC-T9 and the DSC-W150. My major complaint about this Samsung is how slow it takes pictures. More often than not I miss out on things because it's doing something.

Only good until the honeymoon stage is over

  • Summary: I was in love with this cam ever since a friend got it. So I finally bought one for myself and enjoyed it quite a bit for 2 weeks. The dual screen is awesome, a lot of different scenes and features. High resolution cam. The design (and purple color!!!) is oh so cute. The love-sickness ended when I went to a concert of my favorite band. The good: The landscape feature let me take decent pics while super zoomed it.

Fun, Fast Camera, Poor Image Quality

Brian Mantel, Amazon

  • Summary: My previous camera was a 4MegaPixel Canon S410 which I purchased about 7 years ago. I figured it was time for an upgrade and first I purchased a 12.2 MegaPixel Canon SD980 which is about this same price as the Samsung TL225 and also has a large touch screen. The features and touch UI weren't nearly as good as the TL225. The picture quality of the SD980 was poor and after looking more closely at reviews, I realized I wasn't the only one having issues with it.

Gimmicky fun, but unreliable

  • Summary: We take a lot of pictures of ourselves, so I bought this for the little lady to cut down on the time spent taking pictures of ourselves - usually we take 5-10 pictures to be sure one actually has both our faces. Fun feature initially. Also, takes nice pictures, high tech touchscreen, relatively small size. But problems arose: it was very difficult to turn the front screen on or off - it's supposed to be a tap but worked 20% of the time.

Great features, moderate picture quality

  • Summary: We got this camera for Christmas and have used it for a couple of weeks now. The big touch screen is excellent. But since the entire back is touch screen, you can't help but make accidental touches and change some random setting. I agree with some of the reviews that the picture quality is so-so. In bright light or flash, it's good. But medium-light shots that you think would not require flash come out grainy and splotchy. We absolutely love the front LCD.

Too many bugs in the software

AZ, Amazon

  • Summary: Half the choices that should be active in a given shooting mode are grayed out until you pull out the battery and reboot. The front LCD display, when turned on by tapping on it, turns off the flash (in any shooting mode) which is simply dumb, since the whole point of this camera was to take advantage of the front LCD. Software freezes often and the camera needs to be rebooted.

Fun Camera, but Overpriced....

  • Summary: Update to my Update.....****>>> People posting reviews and commenting on my review seem to be freaking obsessed with this camera and complete morons. I have to think they either work for Samsung or just plain have nothing better to do with their lives. I tend to think the later. I posted this review just to help anyone thinking about buying the camera. Its pretty expensive and I thought it might be gimmiky and IT IS.
