The Samsung TL220 12.2 Megapixel Digital Camera opens a whole new dimension in camera design with its DualView technology. While a 3.0″ rear LCD offers touchscreen operation and a wide platform for composing shots, a second 1.5″ LCD located on the camera’s front lets you compose perfect self-portraits and group shots.The Smart Auto Technology optimizes every shot automatically, the Perfect Portrait system ensures great shots of friends and family. With traditional digital cameras, you’re stuck behind the lens, snapping shots of what everyone else is doing, but leaving yourself out of the excitement. And then, we all know what happens when one tries to take a self portrait — you end up with poorly composed shots that are out of focus and crooked, but no with this camera.
The Samsung TL220 features a 12.2 megapixel 1/2.33″ CCD image sensor behind a Schneider Kreuznach Varioplan-branded 4.6x optical zoom lens. The TL220’s lens has actual focal lengths of 4.9 – 22.5mm, and 35mm-equivalent focal lengths of 27mm – 124mm – a generous wide angle through to a moderate telephoto lens. Maximum aperture varies from F3.5 to F5.9 across the zoom range. The TL220’s lens includes optical image stabilization, which should help reduce the likelihood of blur caused by camera shake, as part of what Samsung terms “Dual Image Stabilization”. The other part of the function is Digital Image Stabilization, which combats blur using the camera’s firmware, which makes this camera must have.
Other Listed Features Include:
Front and Back LCD Screens
Rear LCD Touch Screen
12.2 Megapixel Resolution

Summer is here and that presents many photo opportunities and these are usually outdoors and you might even find yourself at the beach. Heat and sand can easily damage your digital camera if you don’t take the correct precautions. Remember that at the beach, your most loved photographic equipment is exposed not only to sand and water but also to heat and salt. These elements are not good for the camera so make sure to keep them away from the device at all times.
If you take your camera to the beach I would suggest wrapping it in something like a zip-lock bag and then a towel. When you take your camera out to get some shots do not leave it on the sand. The mixture of the sand, heat, and salt can do extensive damage to your camera.
If you’re a hobbyist and are heading to the beach avoid changing lenses while you’re already at the beach so you don’t expose them to sand. If you must change the lens then go to your car or any enclosed area or in a car park where you’ll be away from sand that could be blown by the wind.
Make sure to clean your bag as well when you get home. Giving it a vacuum is the best way to get rid of sand.These are just a few tips you might think about if you are heading to the beach with your digital camera.

The A2 LED Aviator is a compact dual-output flashlight that provides two distinct beam types and optional output colors.It uses virtually indestructible power-regulated LED emitters and a precision micro-textured reflector to produce both spot and flood beams in your choice of white, red, green, or blue.The Aviator’s tactically-correct two-stage push–button tailcap switch lets you instantly select an output level: press for a momentary-on long-run-time flood beam for general night use, close work, or where you need to preserve your night vision; press further for a momentary-on white spot beam—nearly six times the light of a big two-D-cell flashlight; twist for constant-on low, twist further for constant-on high.
* Primary LED generates brilliant white spot beam, secondary LEDs produce optional white or color flood beam
