Released August, 2008
The Pros:AUTO mode handles almost any situation without having to think about it. Pictures are almost always clear and well focused. Very little noise at low to medium ISO, great in low light.
The Cons:Long delay between pressing the trigger and the picture being taken. Digital zoom makes pictures very grainy and not worth keeping.

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.
