Samsung TL34HD Review
4 November 2008
Conclusion: The Samsung TL34HD is a mixed bag. It takes very nice shots in good light, but it loses detail in shadows and focusing isn’t super sharp. Video quality is solid too, but audio caliber is screechingly bad. Similarly, response for single shots is fine, but don’t expect to fire off a burst to capture moving subjects. The only real unqualified success here is the touchscreen interface, which is a pleasure to use.
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.
