The Samsung TL500 offers a maximum aperture of f/1.8 and remarkable depth of field through a wider range of aperture stops. With the 24mm, wide-angle Schneider Kreuznach lens and 3x optical zoom, you can take wide-view shots that capture your whole family or expansive vistas.
Dual image stabilization offers the mechanical precision and digital technology of both optical and digital image stabilization, so your pictures will be clear no matter where you position the camera.
Reduced Image Noise in Low Light with CCD Sensors
The Samsung TL500 is equipped with CCD sensors for reduced image noise in low lighting. The 1/1.7-inch sensors offer exceptional sensitivity, with a maximum ISO of 3,200 at full resolution, to deliver high-quality, low-noise images regardless of lighting conditions.
With the Smart Range feature, bright spots aren't saturated, and dark spots aren't too dark. The function captures and displays a clear image in the same frame, providing an optimal view.
AMOLED Swivel Screen Lets You View from Any Angle
The 3-inch AMOLED display swivels so that you can capture photos from any angle and still see what you're shooting. The display is evenly lit--no sidelighting or backlighting--so it's still easy to see from extreme angles. In addition, its 10,000:1 contrast ratio provides clearer images in true colors. AMOLED displays express sharp pictures with rich color, even in bright sunlight, and have a response rate 3,000 times faster than LCD.
Multiple Camera Settings Give You More Control
Adjust the settings of the Samsung TL500 on the fly with dual dials featuring common options like aperture, shutter speed, white balance, and color temperature.
Three manual mode settings give you more options when shooting. Use the Aperture Priority mode to decide what to keep in focus. Switch to Shutter Priority to capture fast-action shots, or Full Manual Control for the most creative freedom.
The Samsung TL500 is also designed to let you edit uncompressed RAW image files right in the camera, and adjust exposure, color, contrast, or resolution with no loss of information.
Advanced Effects for Your Photos with Smart Filter
The Samsung TL500 contains Smart Filter, a collection of seven lens effects that give your still shots an artistic edge. These include a miniature filter, which miniaturizes everything in your picture; a vignetting filter, which delivers a striking compositional contrast; and a fish-eye filter, which zooms in to give your subject a cool, distorted look.
Smart Auto 2.0 Creates the Perfect Shot
With the Samsung TL500's Smart Auto feature, you can capture the picture you have in mind. This scene-recognition technology automatically chooses from among 16 different settings, ranging from landscape to portrait, and adjusts camera settings so that you get a perfect shot.
