DP Review
21 February 2008
  • 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). The NV10 is, undoubtedly, a lovely camera (I kept thinking; if this had a Canon or Nikon badge on it it would sell by the boat load) and one that offers an usually wide feature set for such a slimline model.
  • Pros: Very good resolution and decent sharpness (though see below), Very detailed results at ISO 100-200 (fairly low noise reduction), Bright, punchy results out of camera; perhaps too punchy for many..., Slim all-metal body, Superb build and finish, very stylish 'classic' design, Innovative and impressive 'Smart Touch' control system, Fairly fast and responsive, In-camera effects / editing, Excellent screen, MPEG-4 movies use very efficient compression, Comprehensive featu...
  • 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 exposure errors, 'Advanced Shake Reduction' little, if any, better than high ISO but adds processing time, Underpowered flash, Unimpressive battery life

  • 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.
  • Pros: Wonderful touch-sensitive interface. Good image quality. Stylish design. Very good video clips.
  • Cons: A bit pricey. Some extraneous or unnecessary features. High ISO displays too much noise. Slow boot-up.

  • 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. I had to see what was up with that, instead I found a whole lot more. Build & Features At 97x60x19 mm, the NV10 is easily pocketable and at 190 grams you won't even feel it's there.

  • Summary: At Rs 24,990, the NV10 is priced on the higher side. But price aside, we really appreciate the new user interface, and the only problem we have is the over-saturation. Considering that the NV10 is the third camera in the series, we expect to see even better models.

  • Excerpt: Today's digital cameras have more hi-tech functions than ever before, and at the same time they're getting smaller and lighter. But something has to give, and all too often it's the control interface. Trying to access advanced features means scrolling through so many menus and options that by the time you've selected Sunset mode, it's time to use Night Landscape instead.

  • Excerpt: The NV10 ($399) is one of three models in Samsung's stylish new NV series of digital cameras. This one's a compact camera (though not as small as the NV3) that features a 10 Megapixel CCD, 3X optical zoom lens, digital image stabilization, and a 2.5" LCD display. Those are all pretty run-of-the-mill features.
  • Pros: Compact, very stylish and well built body, Large, high resolution 2.5" LCD display (though see issues below), Unique user interface, Several manual controls, Fun special effects, plenty of scene modes, AF-assist lamp, very good low light focusing, Nice movie mode; optical zoom can be used during recording (though sound recording stops), USB 2.0 High Speed support, Optional remote control, Battery can be charged by your computer (over USB)
  • Cons: Noisy images with substantial corner blurring; some purple fringing, Redeye a big problem, Unique user interface; more specifically, flaky touch sensitive buttons, too fast scrolling when viewing images in playback mode, and too slow in playback zoom mode, Below average battery life, Unimpressive continuous shooting modes, Low light LCD visibility could be better, No optical viewfinder, Using ASR (advanced shake reduction) feature slows down shot-to-shot speeds dramat...

Samsung Digimax NV10

Cameras
8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: According to the Samsung website the Digimax NV10 has won a number of awards. This leaves me scratching my head as I found it difficult to take a decent photo with out high levels of noise. Aside from this problem it is a decent enough camera, but I cannot recommend it owing to the poor quality of test photos I managed to take.
  • Pros: Looks good - feels good it the hand - large LCD screen - after photo effects
  • Cons: Photo quality - shutter lag can be a problem from time to time
