Samsung TL500 (EX1) Review

Revision based on a production Samsung EX1As DSLRs have become less expensive, the number of people who want to buy high-end compact cameras, manually controllable fell away-until the size of the camera are not a problem, the benefits of a larger sensor are hard to resist. However, because the size is a concern for some people, the sector did not die-off entirely and, in July 2008, Panasonic introduced the DMC-LX3, finally an alternative to well-respected Canon G-series Now Samsung Electronics specialist, another overwhelming desire to show their credentials photographic introduced the TL500 (EX1 outside North America), a very little thing that follows the recipe LX3 a fast, wide (though limited) zoom in a fairly compact metal body. The Samsung offers an impressive F1.8-2.4 zoom lens that covers a range from very short 24 mm equiv. 72 mm, making it more the LX3 end wide and a touch faster a fraction equivalent to other outside.Another standout feature of the TL500 is undoubtedly his rear-screen not only have a screen fully articulated, it also has an excellent VGA-equivalent OLED screen we've seen before on the NX10. In principle, OLED screens can be more efficient and provide more contrast of LCD panels, because they can selectively light only pixels that need to be enlightened. They promise even greater viewing angles.In many other aspects of the design of the TL500 closely mimics LX3 if adds a button to record video directly, although only offering rather dated VGA video recording. This restriction, from a 10MP, 1/1.7 CCD, "suggests strongly that the camera is based around the same high sensitivity sensor Sony as the Canon G11 and S90.In general, it is an impressive specification, a lot of desirable characteristics, such as raw capacity and easy manual control of packaging in its elegant form 24-72 mm equivalent, F1.8-2.4 lens10 stabilized million pixel 1/1.7 "front image sensor (0.43 cm?) click rear control dial and dialRAW shooting3.0 inch VGA-equivalent manual articulated screenAccessible OLED controlsOptical StabilizationSmart image modes with automatic scene output detectionVGA outputHD

It is clear from this image that Samsung is not as small as the Panasonic LX3 which clearly played heavily on the minds of its designers. Canon S90 is smaller still, however, the TL500/EX1 is not as big as Canon G11.

If you're new to digital photography, you can read the digital photography Glossary before diving into this article (it may help to understand some of the terms used).

Conclusion/recommendation/ratings are based on the opinion of the reviewer, you should read the entire review before coming to its conclusion.Images that can be displayed with a larger size have a small magnifying glass icon is at the bottom right corner of the image, clicking on the image will display a larger (typically VGA) image in a new window.To pass the review simply use the next/previous page buttons to navigate to a particular section, choose the section drop-down or select it from the top navigation bar.DPReview calibrate their monitors using color vision optical at the PC normal gamma (fairly well accepted) 2.2, this means that on our monitors we can make the difference between all grayscale blocks (computer generated) below. We recommend that you make the most of this review, should be able to see the difference (at least) between X, Y and z and ideally A, B and c.
