Similar to other Samsung compact cameras, the Samsung TL105 offers a long list of user-selectable Photo Styles including Normal, Soft, Vivid, Forest, Retro, Cool, Calm, Classic, Negative, Custom RGB and two new options: Sketch and DeFog Clear/Fog Lifting, which cuts through the haze to take clear photos.
Samsung TL105 camera features HD video recording
The Samsung TL105 puts high-definition video recording in the palm of users’ hands thanks to the ability to record video at a resolution of 720p / 30fps, using H.264 compression. Additionally, to further simplify users’ ability to record the best video possible, the new TL105 digital camera offers Samsung’s advanced scene recognition technology, Smart Auto (Still & Movie).

Smart Auto has been upgraded from the Samsung TL100 as it can now be used with video as well as with still images. Similar to the way the technology analyzes the composition of an image when capturing digital stills, the technology will do the same for video, automatically choosing between one of four pre-programmed settings and selecting the setting that will yield the best footage with proper exposure and color balance.
Scene modes on the Samsung TL105 camera
Consumers who want a little more control over their picture-taking can opt to use the Program mode or choose from a long list of Scene modes. Program mode allows the user to manually set options including ISO, white balance, metering mode, AF, and exposure compensation. Choosing a scene mode that best matches the shooting environment also provides users with some control but doesn’t require much effort since the camera automatically adjusts the settings for the selected mode. Available scene modes on the Samsung TL105 include Beauty Shot, Night, Frame Guide, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-up, Text, Sunset, Dawn Backlight, Beach & Snow, and Fireworks.
