The TL220 was one of the first DualView cameras, which has gone on to be a successful line for Samsung. Alas, this model is now out of production. Here's what we had to say when it was released in September 2009:

[Read our hands-on review of the TL220's big brother, the TL225] A very high percentage of all digital photos are self-portraits taken at an arm's length. This results in a similarly high number of pictures featuring only disembodied arms, foreheads, and half-faces. In the hopes of ending this unfortunate phenomenon, Samsung has introduced the first camera with LCD displays on both sides of the camera so that narcissi...uh, self-portraitists can remember every face that they've ever made. In all seriousness, the front LCD is a cool concept and well-executed for the most part. The rear touchscreen is a flashy touch, though operation is frustrating at times. Overall, the TL220 performs well, but not quite enough to justify the price tag. If you are going to buy a DualView, go with the bigger screen of the TL225.
