Samsung has surprised the world with the introduction of the DualView TL225, one of the first digicams ever to offer dual LCD screens, one located on the front of the camera, along with the typical display on the back. This "DualView" approach is aimed towards those who are constantly taking self-portraits or small group shots using the one-handed, self-photographer method; turning the camera towards you and holding it with one hand while posing for the photo with a friend or loved one.

This is accomplished using a 1.5-inch LCD located on the front of the camera, which allows you to take sharp, high-quality photos, whether you are in front of or behind the camera. The TL225 also features a 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD on the back offering a whopping 1,152K pixels of resolution. This 12-megapixel model also offers a 4.6x optical zoom lens, Smart Auto exposure mode, and H.264 format (MPEG4) HD video recording at 720p resolution.



TL225 Key Features:
  • 12.2-megapixel CCD image sensor for images sizes up to 4000x3000 pixels
