Samsung EX1 TL500
Enticing The Light has reviewed the Samsung TL500 / EX1 – the advanced compact camera features a wide-angle 24mm f1.8 3x optical zoom lens, 3.0″ AMOLED screen, 10 megapixel sensor, manual controls, RAW support, and VGA, 30fps video, we had a look at the Samsung TL500 / EX1 at Photokina. The Samsung TL500 / EX1 is available for £340.

“The TL500 comes with a very sweet lens, in my opinion, one of the true highlights and selling points of this camera. It’s a Schneider Kreuznach 24-72mm-equiv. f/1.8-2.4, which at the time of its release was both faster and longer than the flagship of this class, the Panasonic LX3.”
