Samsung ‘s new 12.2 megapixel point and shoot digital camera, the TL100, makes its debut at CES and reveals a pocket sized camera that packs in the features..

The TL100 features Samsung’s new Smart Auto feature, which takes ease-of-use to a new level. When in operation, Smart Auto will automatically select one of the TL100’s 11 scene modes which best suits the environment the user may be shooting in. For example, the TL100’s Smart Auto feature will automatically set the camera to its Landscape scene mode if the user is taking an image of a mountain range, and then switch gears and automatically select the Portrait scene mode if the user proceeds to take an image of an individual. No manual interaction is required.

“The TL100 exemplifies style and simplicity,” said Tony Sorice, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Digital Imaging, at Samsung Electronics America. “This is an attention grabbing digital camera, not only because of its brushed stainless steel body and slim profile, but because of the advanced features that it brings to the user’s fingertips, which make taking a digital photograph easier than ever.”

The TL100 also offers consumers Face Detection, Smile Shot, Blink Detection, and Beauty Shot technology. For added stability and blur-free images, Samsung has incorporated Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) technology into the TL100, a useful feature that helps reduce the blur found in images as a result of vibrations, hand shake or other unexpected movements at the moment of image capture.

Users can also record video with the new TL100. Featuring MPEG-4 video recording, consumers can capture video at a maximum resolution of 800×592 (SVGA) at 20fps and utilise the camera’s 3x optical zoom for added versatility.

The TL100 also features useful in-camera editing controls, which allows users to pause, and then resume filming of video clips without having to save each clip as an individual file.
