Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 with Samsung TL500 Overview


Let's compare Samsung TL500 with Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1. These models are included in the Small Sensor Compact cameras. Samsung TL500 was released in 2010, and Panasonic 3D1 in 2011. Lumix DMC-3D1 is newer, which is a plus. TL500 1 years older.
The sensor resolution of TL500 is greater than that of Lumix DMC-3D1. However, the difference of 2 MP is not very significant. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (Lumix DMC-3D1), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Panasonic 3D1, the maximum ISO is greater by 3200. Both cameras have Optical image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch articulated screen.
