Super Slim Samsung TL100 Attacks Casio


Hopping over to Samsung, we took an in-depth tour of what the Korean manufacturer had to offer in the camera and camcorder department. It’s easier and more affordable than ever to snap tons of digital memories, but you also want it to be convenient and stylish.

The new Samsung TL100 takes on the same part of the market as the Casio Exilim line and the thin cameras from Sony. Measuring just 16.6mm in thickness, the Samsung TL100 is pretty darn skinny. Key features include a 12.2 megapixel sensor, Smart Auto Mode, 2.7″ LCD, face detection, SVGA video recording, and digital image stabilization.

More Zoom, Less Bulk with Z10W


If you’re looking to get really close to the action without actually getting all that close to the action, then the Samsung HZ10W just might be the ticket. Up until now, most ultrazoom point-and-shoot cameras came with rather bulky lens barrels. This made them somewhat inconvenient to slip into your pocket. The Z10W, by contrast, has a retracting barrel that makes it a lot more travel-friendly.

The 10.2 megapixel camera offers 10x optical zoom, manual controls, red eye fix, optical and digital image stabilization, smile shot, blink detection, and a 24mm wide angle Schneider lens.

On the video side of things, the Samsung Z10W can also shoot 720p HD resolution video at 30 frames a second. It uses H.264 compression to keep the file sizes a little more manageable.

Stepping Up with SL420 Camera


While not offering as much optical zoom as the Samsung Z10W, the Samsung SL420 is a good option for the consumer who doesn’t quite want to step up to the digital SLR end of things. This 10.2 megapixel camera runs par for the course with most of its highlights, but it does push the envelope slightly with its 5x optical zoom. It’s definitely smaller and thinner than the Z10W too.

Other features include SVGA MPEG4 video, optical and digital image stabilization, smile shot, and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.
