Summary: I love the features on my Samsung TL225 , however it does have some problems with the touch screen. There have been a couple of occasions when the left side of the screen was not at all responsive. This is a problem, because the only controls that are not on the touch screen are the power, zoom, and play/capture buttons. It did resume functioning after a few weeks; however it does go out on periodically.
Summary: I hope this camera was not a refurb when i bought it. I could not find refurb in the ad.It works good except when you are taking the picture ,there is a line thru the picture.Any suggestions ?
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.
Summary: I really wanted to get this camera because of the dual view. While this is a nice feature, it is not worth losing the quality of the picture. Although you can get everyone's face in the shot, it is rarely centered. The view screen on the front does not align exactly with the screen on the back, which is actually taking the picture.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought the cam as a gift and my daughter seemed to really like it. She has no complaints so I assume it's a great camera. My only complaint is about the pricing which fluctuated wildly after I purchased it. I saw prices change hourly from $315 to $227 and back. It was annoying to pay $300 for the thing and see it for $227 two days later. I will remember this next Christmas when I am shopping Amazon.
