Samsung Launches TL500 High-End Compact with F1.8 Lens

Samsung TL500 Compact with F1.8 Lens

The high-end Samsung TL500 compact digital camera touts “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.”

Samsung said the high-end Schneider lens 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, the company added.

The Samsung TL500 will hit store shelves in the spring of 2010 at a price of $450.
