Samsung TL225 Digital Camera Review$349.99
The Samsung TL225 is an attractive camera for the $330 price. It shoots good pictures, has a decent zoom lens and is easy to control and use. The large screen on the back of the camera is excellent: clear, bright and with enough resolution to show fine details. We also found that the touch-screen interface was also pretty good: we had no major problems controlling the camera and navigating beyond a few missed buttons.
The front LCD is a useful feature to have if you are in the habit of taking photos of yourself a lot, or if you have small children that might be entranced by the dancing clown illustration it can display. But it's a small screen that is rather dim,
There are a few things missing, though. Serious shooters will bemoan the lack of any manual control over aperture and shutter speed, and those who don't like touch screen controls will feel lost here. And the performance has a few issues at either end of the zoom range. But for casual photographers looking for a simple to use, straightforward camera with good performance, it's a good pick, with the front screen providing a neat way to take photos from a different angle.
