Summary: Not every camera will have this problem, I'm sure, but my lens jammed in the "out" position about the 4th time I turned it on.
Batteries are charged, I pulled them out to let the camera reset, and I even tried with the AC adapter.
Summary: When I saw this camera while a visiting friend from Germany was using it here, I was mightily impressed. He had taken pictures from the plane, showing the glaciers on Iceland, and these were stunning in sharpness and detail. So I ordered the camera for myself that same day.
Summary: I just got the new nv24hd and it is a bit of a disappointment. The zoom operates much faster than the autofocus, so images are always blurry while zooming. Movie images snap into focus about a second after I stop zooming.
Summary: I was sold on the Samsung nv24hd on the interface, most of the functions are there at your finger tips without having to trawl through menus. I was also encouraged by the number of positive reviews this camera has been given here and on other sites.
