Samsung extend its renowned Dual View family of digital cameras with the introduction of the new Samsung TL205 Dual View camera. Offering Samsung’s dual screen LCD technology, the new 12.2 megapixel Samsung TL205 offers a variety of updated features which will make it even easier for consumers to capture their most precious memories with family and friends, both from behind and in front of the camera. The Samsung TL205 will be on display during the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10, 2010, in the Samsung booth in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Samsung TL205 Dualview digital camera will be available in stores from March 2010.

“The introduction of the Samsung DualView camera in 2009 was one of the most successful digital camera introductions in Samsung’s history,” said Mr. SJ Park, CEO of Samsung Digital Imaging Company. “The Samsung TL225 and the TL220 broke new ground and surpassed industry expectations thanks to a combination of technologies that directly addressed how families and consumers take pictures today. We’re proud to add to the momentum generated by the launch of these digital cameras by extending the DualView family with the Samsung TL205 that will bring new features to the table and will be available at a competitive price to accommodate a wide range of budgets.”

Samsung TL205 features a 1.5" LCD screen
The new Samsung DualView TL205 features a 1.5-inch color LCD screen located on the front of the camera. This 1.5-inch display gives consumers the ability to perfect their self-portraits or join their friends and family in the shot. New for the Samsung TL205 DualView camera, consumers can now use the 1.5-inch front LCD to frame video in addition to digital stills. The new Samsung DualView camera also allows users to have more fun with the dual LCD screens thanks to the addition of the Couple Shot feature and the updated Child Mode with music.

The new Samsung TL205 DualView camera comes fully equipped with a true color-filtered 12.2 megapixel CCD, providing sharp and detailed images. The Samsung TL205 features a standard 35mm lens with 3x optical zoom, and is paired with Digital Image Stabilization. The TL205 features large, rear LCD screens with resolutions of 230K-pixels. The Samsung TL205 features a large 2.7-inch LCD.

Samsung DualView TL205 camera features
Enhancements have been made to some of Samsung DualView’s most celebrated features on the Samsung TL205, including updates to the cameras’ Child Mode and Self-Timer. In addition to playing a fun animation on the front LCD screen, the TL205´s Child Mode will also play a musical tune to better help capture a child’s attention in order to snap the perfect picture. The self timer function of the original DualView cameras perfected the group shot because it displayed a preview of the image and a visual countdown timer in the front LCD screen, giving everyone in front of the camera an indication of exactly when the photo would be taken. Taking the self-timer to a new level, the new Samsung TL205 now extends that same functionality when recording video, so that the entire group will know exactly when the camera is rolling. When it comes to capturing the perfect shot, the Samsung DualView TL205 includes the popular Smile Shot feature, which will automatically trigger the camera to take a photo when a smile is detected, but the addition of Couple Shot allows users to set the camera to snap a picture when the subjects in the frame tilt their heads toward one another.

Samsung TL205 digital camera technologies
The Samsung TL205 features advanced scene recognition technology, Smart Auto, which has been upgraded for use with video as well as with still images. Designed to simplify the way consumers take a photograph, Smart Auto ensures that users never have to worry about their photos being washed out, too dark or out of focus. Smart Auto analyzes key elements of the composition of the image such as color, brightness, motion and subject and then selects the appropriate scene mode which will produce the best results possible. 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 that which will yield the best footage with proper exposure and color balance.

The Samsung DualView TL205 also features Samsung’s Perfect Portrait System - a series of automatic technologies which take the guess work out of shooting beautiful portraits. Key features of this system are Samsung’s Smile Shot, Blink Detection, Red-eye Fix, and Beauty Shot technologies which allow consumers to capture their subjects looking their best.

Samsung TL205 camera design
The Samsung TL205 also features a slanted design, which places the back of the camera at a seven degree angle. This subtle design accent provides users with further options for taking impressive self-portraits and group shots. The issue that many consumers face when taking self-portraits or group shots with traditional digital cameras is the camera must be positioned much higher than the subjects in order to capture the complete image. Thanks to the seven degree angling of the TL205, the lens will always be pointed at the subjects’ faces even if the camera is positioned at a lower angle. The Samsung TL205 Dualview digital camera will be available from March 2010.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
