Hot Products Ready For The 2009 Holiday Season


Announced last month, the TL-225 digital camera from Samsung Electronics America has a 12.2-megapixel CCD and a 3.5-inch touch-screen display. What really makes this device (and its sibling, the TL-220) different is the addition of a 1.5-inch touch screen next to the lens on the front.

Perfect for self-portraits, when the smaller screen is tapped, it turns on and by default is set, in self-portrait mode, with Smile Shot. Holding the camera at arm's length, the user can view himself in the screen and the camera will automatically release the shutter when it detects a smile.

Almost all settings and controls are configured via menus on the rear LCD, which also offers haptic vibration feedback. A more in-depth look can be found in the CRN Test Center's review.
