Samsung TL320 and HZ15W

Samsung this morning made official two 12-megapixel cameras that will occupy the higher end of its compact line ahead of the PMA show. The TL320 confirms earlier leaks and stands out for its preview display, a 3-inch AMOLED display; the 480x320 screen not only has a more TV-like contrast ratio at 10,000:1 for improved accuracy but is much more viewable off-center or in broad daylight than a same-size LCD.

The Korean company also gives the TL320 unique analog-like gauges that show battery life and available camera memory without having to rely on the on-screen view. A 5X, 24mm wide-angle lens, 720p video recording and detection for blinks, faces and smiles also put it above average. Samsung anticipates shipping the TL320 in May for $380.

A second model, the HZ15W, is a more advanced counterpart to the HZ10W just introduced at CES and has the same very long-ranged 10X, 24mm wide-angle lens but with the sharper 12-megapixel sensor. It continues to support 720p video with HDMI output as well as the same blink/face/smile detection and other modes of most 2009 Samsung cameras. The HZ15W ships in March for $330.
