Samsung TL500 Hands-On Review

Samsung TL500

One of the flagship announcements at PMA 2010 was the Samsung TL500, which is a serious point and shoot camera that matches up well against the popular Canon G11.  I had to opportunity to spend a little time with a preproduction TL500 while at PMA 2010.  As with other prepoduction models that I encountered, I was not allowed to bring back sample images or video to share with you.

The TL500 packs a 10MP 1/1.7″ CCD sensor and a 3x optical zoom lens, which has an f/1.8 max aperture on the wide end.  When zoomed out to full tele, the max aperture becomes f/2.4.  In addition to the headline bright aperture lens, the TL500 also touts a beautiful, swiveling 3-inch AMOLED screen.
