Friday August 13:
I found the first user review and Joe has lots of samples.
Also here is one on Flickr.

It is now the end of April, nothing tho see or hear from the WB2000, I had enough with waiting, got me a Sony HX5, this blog ends now. You blew it Samsung!
(mid July 2010 and there is still nothing to see from this camera. I bet Sony was pissed that Samsung wanted to offer 1080p while Sony is all cameras with the same sensor still restricting to 1080i and they might fighting over the release date.)
Dear Samsung, it is now exactly 2 month (Anaheim, CA February 20, 2010, SAMSUNG ANNOUNCES THE HIGH-SPEED TL350 WITH FULL HD VIDEO ) since you told the world about the WD2000. Since then nothing. The only info is a badly made page on the German Samsung site what tells about a 12 Mp sensor and other half truth and marketing gibberish. No details nothing. If this is Mr. SJ Park, CEO of Samsung Digital Imaging Company, "Samsung’s strategy to lead the digital imaging industry through product innovation" then you might need a new CEO because this is unaceptable.
Samsung, I will give you until end of April, if by then there is not more qualified information available, this blog will end and I will get a Sony HX5v.

I just read a review about the Samsung WB5000 and the verdict is the same as with most the Samsung p&s cameras:
In typical Samsung style, the WB5000 is packed with intelligent user-friendly features and impressive specifications. Unfortunately, the image quality and general performance of this new model are disappointing. Samsung is trying to appeal to both complete beginners and more seasoned photographers by putting together a mix of clever technology and manual control, but in this case the final product does not measure up to the competition.
So even if I wish the WB2000 would have none of the usual Samsung faults, my hope is dwindling and the absence of any information is not too encouraging either.

TL350’s New Dual Capture Mode Allows Users To Take
10 Mega-Pixel Stills While Simultaneously Recording Full-HD Video
Anaheim, CA (February 20, 2010) – Samsung Electronics
America, Inc., a market leader and award‑winning innovator in consumer electronics, today unveiled the TL350 - a high-speed, 10 mega‑pixel compact camera with 1080P, full-HD video recording. With a maximum video recording speed of 1,000 frames-per-second (fps) and a burst mode capable of capturing 10 full-size digital stills per second, the TL350 takes high-speed imaging to a new level for today’s consumer. Additionally, the TL350 enhances the digital imaging experience with Samsung’s Advanced Panorama Shot with Object Tracking as well as an innovative Dual Capture mode, which allows users to simultaneously take 10 mega-pixel still images while recording full-HD videos.

“The TL350 is representative of Samsung’s strategy to lead the digital imaging industry through product innovation,” said Mr. SJ Park, CEO of Samsung Digital Imaging Company. “Consumers have expressed frustration with having to choose between shooting video or taking digital stills with their camera. With the TL350, Samsung has addressed this unmet consumer need,
and now gives consumers the ability to do both simultaneously.”

High-Speed Digital Stills and Video

The TL350 allows users to capture high-quality images no matter how fast the action may be. Its advanced CMOS sensor and re-engineered DRIMeIII processor yield impressive low‑light performance and most notably, speed, giving users the ability to capture up to 10 pictures-per-second (pps) at the resolution of 10 mega-pixels. Additionally, the TL350 features a 1,000 fps (138x78), high-speed video recording mode which today’s creative consumer can use to reveal details of a fast moving event in super‑slow motion. Whether it’s used to capture an everyday moment in an astonishing new light or to analyze a golf swing, the capabilities of the TL350’s super-slow motion playback are endless.

Impressive Optics and Display

In addition to its impressive speed, the TL350 also features a high-performance 24mm ultra‑wide angle Schneider KREUZNACH lens complete with a generous 5x optical zoom. Much wider than traditional compact cameras, the TL350’s 24mm ultra-wide angle lens allows photographers to capture more of a desired scene, such as large groups of friends or family, while the 5x optical zoom will allow them to get in close when shooting from a distance. Samsung’s
Advanced Panorama shot with Object Tracking will further enhance the camera’s wide-angle capabilities, ideal for the better capture of scenes such as vast landscapes. For blur‑free images, the TL350’s lens is also paired with Samsung’s Dual Image Stabilization technology.
The TL350 is equipped with a three-inch AMOLED screen providing users with a higher contrast ratio, deeper blacks and more accurate, vivid colors, even when viewed from an angle or in direct sunlight. The AMOLED display is also more efficient when it comes to power consumption, allowing photographers to maximize battery life and shoot longer on a single charge.

Features for the Advanced and Novice Shooter

The TL350 will appeal to both novice and more experienced users thanks to the combination of Smart and Manual controls. The camera’s intuitive Smart Auto 2.0 (Still & Movie) scene recognition technology will take the guess work out of taking a perfect photo or video every time; however, for those users who want to have more control over image capture, the TL350 supports RAW and offers Manual control. When set to Manual, consumers can experiment
with features such as slower shutter speeds, depth-of-field and even focus.
