Samsung TL34HD Review
4 November 2008
Excerpt: Point-and-shoot digicams have some pretty outlandish features for reasonable prices these days. Look at the new Samsung TL34HD, for example. It has a 14.7-megapixel sensor, a 3-inch touchscreen LCD, optical image stabilization, a wide-angle Schneider 3.6x zoom and takes 720p high-def videos: Not bad for around 325 clams in the real world. Samsung’s not exactly Canon, Nikon or Sony, so it stands to reason that the manufacturer has to give you more than the competition.
Pros: Fine images in good light; solid 720p videos; excellent touch screen menu
Cons: Sharp photos require bright light; built-in mic is really bad
Excerpt: The Samsung NV100HD digital compact camera features a 14.7Mp sensor with a 3.6x optical zoom, equivalent to 28-102mm in 35mm format. This useful focal length will be ideal for general shooting and wide-angled shots, meaning you’ll fit the whole family or landscape easily in frame. On the back is a 3in LCD screen and on the right hand edge you’ll find the play, menu and zoom buttons in a vertical arrangement.
Summary: While the Samsung NV100HD’s retro looks and slightly fiddly touch screen operation may attract and repulse in equal numbers, its solidly constructed feel and reasonably well exposed images straight out of the camera should mean there’s little in the way of post processing needed by those looking to avoid hours slumped in front of a computer screen. Along as you like a well saturated, sharpened look to your images that is.
Summary: As long as you don’t set too much store by the 14.7 million pixels and HD movie mode, you will not be disappointed by the NV100HD. It looks great, handles well and has enough technology to impress even your geekiest mates.
