Posted by at 5:07 pm on January 19, 2010



Samsung Electronics has announced two new ultra-slim digital cameras,  designed  for consumers who want a stylish, on-the-go camera for parties, family gatherings and other special moments.   At just 0.65 inches thin, the 14.2 megapixel TL110 and 12.2 megapixel TL105 are each equipped with a 2.7-inch LCD and feature a 5x optical zoom and a 4x optical zoom respectively.

“Consumers want portability in a point and shoot, and we think our ultra-slim TL110 and TL105 address that desire,” said Mr. SJ Park, CEO of Samsung Digital Imaging Company.   “Despite their size, both the TL110 and TL105 are feature-packed and ideal for beginner and advanced photographers who want a well-equipped but easy to use, compact camera.”

Improved Optics
Samsung’s new models feature an improved 27mm wide-angle lens (for TL110) and 27.5mm wide-angle lens (for TL105) when compared to their predecessor, the TL100.   The TL110 has a versatile 5x optical zoom, which is paired with Dual Image Stabilization (IS) to help reduce image blur by combining both Optical and Digital Image stabilizers to produce sharp images. The TL105 offers an expanded 4x optical zoom and features Digital Image Stabilization.

Creative Effects Add to the User Experience
New image effects available with the TL110 and TL105, such as Fisheye and Lomo, are included to  let  you add a touch of creativity to their photos. Similar to other Samsung compact cameras, this duo offers a long list of user-selectable Photo Styles including Normal, Soft, Vivid, Forest, Retro, Cool, Calm, Classic, Negative, Custom RGB and two new options: Sketch and DeFog Clear/Fog Lifting, which cuts through the haze to take clear photos.

HD Video Recording
The TL110 and TL105  add high-definition video recording with the ability to record video at a resolution of 720p / 30fps, using H.264 compression.   Additionally, to help you record the best video possible, the cameras offer Samsung’s advanced scene recognition technology, Smart Auto (Still & Movie).   Smart Auto has been upgraded from the TL100 as it can now be used with video as well as with still images.   Similar to the way the technology analyzes the composition of an image when capturing digital stills, the technology will do the same for video, automatically choosing between one of four pre-programmed settings and selecting the setting that will yield the best footage with proper exposure and color balance.

Additional Control
If you  want a little more control over  your picture-taking you can opt to use the Program mode or choose from a long list of Scene modes.   Program mode allows you to manually set options including ISO, white balance, metering mode, AF, and exposure compensation.   Choosing a scene mode that best matches the shooting environment also provides  you with some control and the camera automatically adjusts the settings for the selected mode.   Available scene modes include Beauty Shot, Night, Frame Guide, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-up, Text, Sunset, Dawn Backlight, Beach & Snow, and Fireworks.

Both the TL105 and TL110 are due to be released in February and price information is not yet available.
