The L201 is a mid-level compact digital camera from Samsung. The L201 features a 10.2 megapixel CCD image sensor, a 3x optical zoom lens, a 2.7” LCD screen and includes a rechargeable battery. Samsung has implemented 10 preset scenes and automatic modes, which allow the average user to optimize their photos without having to manually adjust the camera’s settings. For more advanced users, a manual shooting mode is also available. Also included is face detection technology, which automatically adjusts focus, exposure, the flash and white balance for optimal image quality when shooting people. The L201 also features a motion timer for simpler group photos, plus an interactive photo help guide to help users get to know their camera. The consensus amongst camera experts suggests shots can be over-sharpened at high resolutions, but isn’t likely to affect the general consumer who prints standard 4”x6” images. The Samsung L201 is available in silver, pink, blue, green and black.
