Samsung introduces the 10 mega-pixel TL500 at the PMA 2010. The Samsung TL500 is a high-end compact digital camera designed specifically for advanced and enthusiast photographers.

The new flagship of Samsung's compact digital camera family, the new TL500 incorporates a full-range of advanced features, including a high-performance imaging sensor and one of the brightest lenses ever featured on a compact camera – a 24mm ultra wide angle Schneider KREUZNACH, f/1.8.

The f/1.8 lens of the TL500 offers photographers a wider range of aperture steps and shallow depth-of-field, giving them the ability to blur out the background of their images while maintaining focus on their subjects.
The ultra-fast, f/1.8 lens also allows users to take better photos in low-light environments as more light is passed through to the new high-performance 1/1.7” CCD sensor. Larger than the sensors typically found in compact digital cameras, the TL500’s 1/1.7” CCD offers unrivaled sensitivity (max ISO 3200/full-resolution). Together with Samsung’s re-engineered and fast, DRIMeIII imaging processor, the TL500 captures high-quality images, regardless of the lighting environment. The high-end Schneider lens offers a 24mm, ultra-wide focal length and 3x optical zoom.

Much wider than traditional compact cameras, the TL500’s 24mm ultra-wide angle lens allows photographers to capture more of a desired scene, such as beautiful landscapes and large groups of friends or family. For blur free images, the TL500’s lens is also paired with Samsung’s Dual Image Stabilization technology.

Composing and reviewing images on the TL500’s three-inch, swiveling AMOLED screen is a pleasure. The rotating AMOLED display will allow photographers to precisely frame their images the way they want and shoot from just about any angle, including overhead or low to the-ground shots.
Compared to the traditional TFT-LCD found on most digital cameras, the TL500’s AMOLED provides users with a higher contrast ratio, deeper blacks and more accurate, vivid colors, even when viewed from an angle or in direct sunlight. The TL500’s AMOLED display is also more efficient when it comes to power consumption, allowing photographers to maximize battery life and shoot longer on a single charge.

The Samsung TL500 will be on display during PMA 2010, February 21st - 23rd in the Anaheim Convention Center. Samsung will start shipping the Samsung TL500 for $449.99 in Spring.

The PMA 2010 exhibition starts on February 21st and ends on the 23rd. The PMA trade-show is used by many camera makers as a launch pad for new cameras for the Spring and Summer time frame.
