Summary: it is not a bad camera. however... when taking photos with the flash there is an awful shadow behind subjects. sometimes the camera will not turn on and freezes during use. takes good photos outside and without the flash. touchscreen is nice but my S3 takes better photos. video is pretty decent.
Summary: This is not a good camera. It doesn't focus properly and now it has developed a line down the picture. Don't waste your money. I did by buying this camera and and extended warranty yet it now seems I have no recourse to get my money back!
Excerpt: - hype, mellow and cute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xFD9G7er2Y - hyper, though more complete: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vldFxty42FY With a (very difficult to install, but excellent) 'Boxwave anti-glare screen protector' and a (slightly hard to find) '4gb class 10 micro sdhc card', it's a great little party/pocket, semi-disposable daytime street shooter!
Summary: I spent a lot of time deciding which digital camera would best suite my needs. I like a lot of control of the settings but need it to fit in my pocket as it accompanies me on very active trips. The camera I had previously was a Samsung and I loved it, but unfortunately my clumsy self dropped it in a toilet. At first I was very pleased with my purchase. It worked great, I loved all the features, and my pictures turned out fantastic.
Excerpt: The Samsung TL240 camera takes great quality photos up to 14MP. The camera itself has a thin, sleek design and feels very sturdy and well made. The large 3.5 inch screen is very clear and has good response to touch input. I've tested other touch screen cameras in the past and the screens never seemed as responsive or as clear as the Samsung TL240. In preview mode, the picture initially looks a little blurry but when zoomed in once it becomes clear.
Summary: Lot of camera for not a lot of money. Only major grip, not limited to this camera, is that photographs in full daylight literally are impossible to compose due to refraction on the LCD display. Took it to Panama rather than haul around my D300. Perhaps it was rather too small. Slipped from my pocket when squatting, awaiting a bus. Expect the new owner enjoyed the last of the battery.
