Samsung TL350 (WB2000) Reviews

PhotographyBlog reviews the Samsung TL350 (WB2000) and writes;
“Just like the EX1, the WB2000 is a serious photographic tool that concentrates on delivering high quality images with the minimum of fuss, yet can still be easily carried in your pocket. When you add in the fact that image quality between the two cameras is very similar, thanks to the sensible and effective 10 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and the sharp and bright 24-120mm lens, the WB2000 is a real alternative to its headline-grabbing sibling.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Photoreview reviews the Samsung TL350 (WB2000) and writes;
“auto white balance performance was similar to the EX1, with only slight warming visible in shots taken under incandescent lighting. Shots taken under fluorescent lighting were very close to colour-neutral. The pre-sets tended towards slight-to-moderate over-correction. Manual measurement removed all colour casts.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Trustedreviews reviews the Samsung TL350 (WB2000) and writes;
“Although the Samsung WB2000 is expensive it can certainly deliver the goods, with outstanding image quality and creative versatility, and among of the best high-ISO performance in its class. Build quality is excellent, the AMOLED monitor is superb, autofocus is good in all lighting conditions, and the full HD video with stereo sound is an added bonus.”

Pocket-lint reviews the Samsung TL350 (WB2000) and writes;
“Colours are realistic rather than over-saturated though there is a tendency for the camera to lose detail in the highlights. As we’ve noted, images are not quite as crisp as they appear on screen – especially when shooting at maximum telephoto – and require a modest amount of editing to bring out their best. Though Samsung hasn’t overburdened its CMOS sensor with pixels – sticking at 10.6MP rather than pushing for 14MP – images are nevertheless noisy at ISO 800 and above. The same could be said for most point and shot compacts of course, but for the price we’d dared to hope for slightly better.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung TL350 (WB2000) and writes;
“Images taken at the base ISO are clean and clear with every last detail rendered. A few light sharpening artefacts can be seen around high contrast edges, but these will pose few issues in print. Increasing the sensitivity has little effect on image quality until ISO400, where slight amounts of noise are visible on close inspection in flat areas of colour. “

awesome cam that can do what other point and shoots can’t
“Look, let’s be real here. You can get a feel for a camera from handling one in store, but only to the extent that you can assess ergonomics. do you know how many times the display model has fallen out of its mount and onto the floor, been manhandled by customers, etc.? how many damaging slams has the lens taken? And so on. The real proof of this item’s value is what it can do that competing cams can’t match: YOU can shoot real HD video AND 10 MP photos at the SAME TIME! this greatly enhances your chances of capturing the kinds of memories you’ll want to save and cherish.” – By Jeffrey Rubin

Arguably, most options in its class; quality stills; exceptional high-speed video; amazing HD movies; with some minor issues
“The camera is generally quite easy to use, except for the ‘Drive Mode Dial’. Although it does not always provide the sharpest still images in its class it comes very close, and its HD/HQ movies are, arguably, the best in its class. Put simply, its combination of capabilities is just not found on other compact digital cameras. Its deficiencies are minor compared to the totality of it’s capabilities. It’s energy efficient AMOLED provides exceptionally sharp, bright, and saturated images, while conserving battery life.” – By Reader

Great camera, better then S90 and LX3
“3 days ago I bought 2 Samsung cameras: TL350 and TL500. Both of them are just awesome! I also bought Canon S90 and Panasonic LX3 2 weeks ago. After testing all 4 cameras I found out that even TL350 beats both S90 and LX3.
Quality of both indoor and outdoor images and white balance are visibly better when using TL350 vs. to S90 and LX3. ” – By SM

Great camera!
“The Auto setting works great. It controls every setting brilliantly and so far focus works. I personally prefer the Manual setting. For shooting video you can even choose what lighting are you using. I use halogen lamps, and it has that option right in it. Didn’t try it yet but sure will. ” – By Dawid S Swierczek

Patience is rewarded, has quirks
“The TL-350 has more features than most equivalent cameras, and takes decent photos even at higher ISO levels (ISO 400 is quite good). But it needs some attention. I purchased it to replace a dropped LUMIX DMC LZ5, which was a great travel workhorse. The Samsung takes reasonable RAW, processes them quickly, and has a very usable zoom range. Lens is fairly fast. 1080p video is great, panorama stitching is great, takes both raw and jpeg simultaneously, takes jpegs while in video mode, and has reasonable battery life.” – By DRPBL

Face Detection
Each time you click, your camera automatically recognises if there is a face in the shot. It then optimises the focus and exposure of up to nine faces for stunning, natural looking portraits.

Beauty Shot
The Beauty Shot function uses face detection technology to retouch the facial skin to appear brighter and to give the impression of a smoother skin tone. This can be done either while shooting or during playback.

Blink Detection
The Blink Detection function detects when a subjects eyes are closed; this feature triggers the camera to automatically take three shots in order to capture the eyes open.

Smile Detection
Smile Detection ensures that no happy moments are missed by taking the shot automatically when smiles are detected.
