Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood


    The Samsung DualView TL205 has a second LCD up front and an angled bottom to make self-portraits a snap.


    The Samsung DualView TL205 feels cheaply made and produces mediocre low-light photos.


    The Samsung DualView TL205's front LCD and low price make it a decent choice for self-portrait-loving photographers on a budget.

2nd camera from Mfg TL205 and TL210 like them both

Ease of use and good quality pictures, can set picture size and can load up 1000 picture with right card and size setting.
Would say watch price both retail and here as many good deals but some selling way to high.
have a TL 210 with 5X and now the TL 205 with 3X and will buy a couple more for gifts or just to keep a spare. Get a extra battery and car charger also would be my advice for pictures on the go as you need the PC cord to charge without the extra battery . Lot of features and still learning them but right out of box you can take great pictures with just a quick review of manual.

Awesome camara

Review For: Samsung DualView TL205 12.2 MP Digital Camera - Silver

Front view lcd is a great feature and now im spoiled and wont go back to the other kind. This Samsung TL205 camara is truelly great and takes great pictures and even detects when a person smiles and takes the shot for you. It also has a clown on the front lcd for kids/grown ups that wont smile, it does work pretty good cause my 4 yr old son gets very amussued by it. It just has too many great features and for the price, it cannot be touched by the other manufactures. I recommended it to a couple of my friends and they love it too.

A good buy for the money! Good picture quality.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this camera for my son for Christmas prio to a school trip to Germany in the summer. I wanted something he could use easily, would take good pictures and was a quality unit.

I've only tested the camera for function so far it seems to be fine. I bought new, open box with manufacturer warranty for $50 less than store prices roughly $90.00.

The thing I think he'll use the most and the reason I picked this camera is the front screen that allows you to see what your camera sees when getting in the picture. I think he'll have fun showing us all the places he's been when taking pictures such as that.

The 12MP file size is very nice and allows for enlargements for printing if need be. The color trueness appears to be fine and cycle cycle time between pictures is very quick (I like that).

The only draw back I see is the proprietary battery by Samsung, I would have preferred a AA battery eater as I think he wuld have opportuntiy to change batteries off teh shelf versus plugging in and recharging - especially while on an extensive trip.

I have no idea on battery life so it may be unwarranted but that is the only unknown. It synches fine to my Mac or PC with no issues.

Love it!

Review For: Samsung DualView TL205 12.2 MP Digital Camera - Silver

I love this camera! I was a little skeptical because when I went to ask about it at Best Buy the guy said it was new, so he didn't know much about the camera. However, I found it on ebay for a good price and bought it anyway. The front display is an awesome feature to have and the camera is really easy to use. The only complaint I would have is that the zoom could be 4x, but overall I really love it!
