Pocketable megazooms are very popular this year. Samsung has two in its spring 2009 lineup: the HZ15W and HZ10W. The major specifications separating the two are megapixels and LCD size. The 15W is a 12.2-megapixel model with a 3-inch display, the 10W is a 10.2-megapixel camera with a 2.7-inch LCD. Both have 24mm wide-angle lenses with 10x zooms.
The 10-megapixel HZ10W from Samsung looks wonderful on paper. A compact camera with a 10x megazoom wide-angle 24mm Schneider lens and a whole mess of features.
You get 720p HD video capture at 30fps using H.264 for good-quality compression and the zoom works while shooting. The video mode also lets you pause and resume capture so you don't end up with a bunch of small files.
There's optical image stabilization, too, so your photos aren't a blurry mess when that lens is extended. And for those that like a lot of control, you'll be able to adjust the HZ10W's settings manually for things like shutter speed, aperture, exposure, and focus. I also wouldn't doubt the inclusion of multiple settings for color, sharpness, and contrast.
Like any decent point-and-shoot camera in its class, the TL100 has a largish LCD at 2.7 inches. It also has the shooting options currently in vogue: face, smile, and blink detection, auto scene recognition, and full-resolution ISO settings up to 1600.
