Samsung goes retro with latest point-and-shoot


The twin analog dials on Samsung's TL320 point-and-shoot, indicating battery life and remaining memory, strike a retro chord on what's otherwise a very modern camera.

A 24mm wide-angle 24-240mm lens with 5x optical zoom, 3" HVGA Amoled display and 720p H.264 video recording top the feature list. It also has a 12mp sensor, HDMI output and both hardware and software image stabilization.

It can shoot in aperture priority, shutter priority or full manual; has a "comprehensive suite of automatic controls" for the rest of us; and 11 preset scene-shooting modes, face detection and "Beauty Shot," which smooths out skin tones. Samsung also pitches Smart Album, software that allows for easy searching of specific images in your collection, which it'll bundle with the cam.

It'll be offered in black and silver in May, for $380.
