Is the Samsung TL320 a RAWsumer? (NO!)

Samsung has announced today the Samsung TL320 (aka WB100) and in just one place, the spec-sheet at dpreview.com, it mentions that the camera has RAW. However, we have not (yet) found any other mentions of RAW anywhere else. Could this be a cut/paste error in the spec-sheet by dpreview or the camera has RAW but Samsung did a poor job in the letting anyone know about?

Samsung has also produced one RAWsumer so far, the giant "big daddy" Pro815 during the "glory days" of the RAWsumer. In fact, the Pro-815 was one of the last 2/3"-RAWsumers to come out.

We'll post an update if we find out more.

Update: Samsung TL320 is NOT a RAWsumer
Thanks to one of our reader in the comments section for letting us know! The dpreview specifications have been updated and the mention of RAW has been removed. So we can now safely cross it off the RAWsumer list since no one else mentions "RAW" in their specs.

The Samsung NV24HD was another terrific sounding camera from the specs. Also w a wide angle starting at 24mm equiv. And it sucked. Soft pictures. The new lens is an even more aggressive zoom. I doubt they improved it. You can still get the NV24HD around FOR CHEAP. Similar form factor. Fuzzy is still Fuzzy in RAW.

Indeed, the samples and the reviews will tell the story. RAW can't work miracles after all, it's a 12mp 1/2.3" sensor, so it has a ceiling to begin with!

DPReview edited the release and it no longer mentions raw. Guess I'm not selling the FX150 after all :)

Thanks so much for the update! Will change the post to reflect that!
