Say Cheese! and be seen

Click and shoot is easier said than done when you’re trying to get yourself and your best friend in the same pic without cutting off half your face or theirs. We’ve gotten pretty good at this but if the moment is really special, like that once in a lifetime meeting with a rock star do you really want to chance ending up with only your ear in the shot? Even convincing your best friend that that’s really you is a long shot at that.

Samsung, whose booth at CES was full of well thought out products once again has a unique solution to the problem. Simply put the soon to be released TL205 and TL210 (the latter with features like HD movie mode and a frame guide to help set up shots for someone else to take or to take multiple shots accurately) digital compact camera has a screen in front so you see exactly what you are shooting just as if you had it turned the other way. It also has a mode to allow you to attract a baby to look toward the camera.

This is an exclusive feature to Samsung (at least for another year according to Jeff Ingram, Samsung’s national training manager). How could something so simple not be in my possession? I wish the dual screen would be a feature on their cell phones instead since everyone I know carries that with them as their primary mode of communication (and photo taking those “out of nowhere” moments can happen anytime) and no doubt this would make more sense, but when I do get another camera, especially for those special moments like trips and concerts, this will be my camera of choice.

This blog was written by Genevieve L’Esperance, a 17-year-old visiting CES for the first time. Make sure to check out her blogs throughout this week.
