  • Conclusion: Samsung is rapidly catching up with its Japanese rivals and is finally starting to make its mark on the digital camera market with a combination of aggressive pricing, appealing styling and a dash of genuine innovation (such as the NV10's smart touch user interface).

  • Cons: Contrast and Saturation way too high - no way to change them in-camera, Some fall-off in sharpness at edges / corners, Shutter lag and focus not as fast as best competitors (not bad though), Strong visible chroma noise at ISO 400+ (very mild noise visible even at ISO 100), Occasional focus and ex...

Test: Samsung NV10

  • Excerpt: The 3x Schneider-Kreuznach zoom (35-105mm equivalent) on the 10.1-megapixel Samsung NV10 (street $290) bulges out from the black aluminum body, as if to say "this isn't your typical point-and-shoot."

  • Conclusion: Samsung's NV line of ultracompacts offers a new navigation system that's intuitive and inventive, but a few performance issues keep these cameras from greatness.

  • Cons: A bit pricey. Some extraneous or unnecessary features. High ISO displays too much noise. Slow boot-up.

  • Cons: Photo quality - shutter lag can be a problem from time to time

  • Excerpt: Though not an entirely new camera, the NV10 gained my interest after I noticed a very unique quality about it in their TV ad. I noticed a series of unlabeled buttons right below the screen that were being used to scroll through the pictures taken.
