The DualView TL225's "wow" factor is off the charts with two LCDs, Touchscreen LCD on back is large, bright, and sharp one of the best around, Image quality is very good, Autofocus works very well most of the time, Menu structure is easy to understand
Fantastic image quality, Frontfacing LCD & large touch screen LCD on back, 720p Video w/ HDMI output
Excellent image quality. Versatile front-facing LCD. Thin design. High-resolution 3.5-inch touch-screen display with haptic feedback. HDMI-CEC support.
Touch screen menu not nearly as sophisticated or intuitive as competitors, Tilt control doesn't work well, Uses easy-to-lose, hard-to-handle microSD/microSDHC cards, Minimal manual adjustments, Difficulty using touch screen when mounted on tripod, Sof
Low quality pictures in darker settings could be improved.
Expensive, Poor battery life, Supports only microSD and microSDHC storage cards
Zoom actually only 6 discrete steps, User interface sometimes uses cryptic English, Very slippery case, easy to drop, Front LCD a bit dim, Very tippy resting on flat surface, Colors a bit oversaturated, No HDMI cable included in box, Bundled software Wind
Soso image quality, especially in low light. Long shutter lag means many missed moments. Touchscreen isn't very responsive or protected by a plastic screen — we felt like it could get damaged pretty easily. Style: UltracompactResolution: 12.2 me
ISO performance not great, Uses MicroSD (Really?), Video quality subpar, Slow image buffer.
Adapter needed for HDMI output; microSD card requirement might irk some; touch-screen interface not for everyone; battery charges in camera; whole screen not used for framing shots at full resolution.
Camera can be a little tough to hold comfortably because of large LCD, Not surprisingly, an LCD that occupies the entire back of the camera is easy to smudge, Only can charge battery while it's in camera, Macro mode images sometime wash out when flash
Long shutter lag, Proprietary HDMI & USB connectors
Noticeable shutter lag. Audio is muted when you zoom during video capture. Proprietary USB and HDMI Ports.
