Samsung taking all that complexity out of pointing and shooting with the 12.2 megapixel TL100

Yes, we know just how hard it can be to take pictures with your standard compact digital camera, what with the whole shutter button and all. Thank goodness for Samsung, who will take ease of use to a "new level" this spring with the TL100 slim camera, capable of automatically detecting whether you're taking a picture of a mountain or a person and toggling the appropriate mode accordingly. It can even go ahead and just take the durned picture for you in certain modes, able to tell when everyone has their eyes open or is beaming a sufficiently big enough smile. It will also take 800 x 592 videos at 20fps, and manages to pack a 2.7-inch TFT LCD into a body that Samsung says is just 16mm thick -- if you don't count the protrusion from the 3X lens. Since that lens is decidedly non-removable, we think we will.
