  • Conclusion: I don't often get excited about new compact cameras when I first see them, but last summer when I got my hands on a (very) early pre-production sample of the NV7 OPS I was genuinely pleased to see a company like Samsung taking the risks with design and functionality that the main players seem to...
  • Pros: Superb build and finish, Huge feature set in a very compact body, Extensive photographic controls & some fun features, Unique styling & user interface, Bright, punchy, fairly detailed ISO 100 images, Big, fairly fast (F2.8-4.0) 7x zoom, Reasonably fast performance, Accepts threaded filters & lens...
  • Cons: Excessive noise at ISO 200+, visible noise at ISO 100, Smearing of low contrast detail at all ISO settings (Noise Reduction), Unimpressive ISO 400-1000 results; suitable only for small prints, Corner and (mild) edge softness, Excessive contrast and saturation - can't be turned down in-camera, Mil...

  • Excerpt: The Samsung NV7 OPS ($349) is the top-of-the-line model in the Korean manufacturer's line of premium digital cameras. It packs a 7 Megapixel CCD, 7X optical zoom lens, optical image stabilization, full manual controls, and a very unique user interface.
  • Pros: Good value for the money, Very stylish design, one of a kind; great build quality, save for the battery/memory compartment cover, Optical image stabilization (though see issues below), Large, high resolution 2.5" LCD display (though see issues below), Unique user interface (though see below), Ful...
  • Cons: Images are noisy and plagued by noise reduction artifacts, even at low ISOs, Redeye a big problem, User interface can be frustrating; sometimes too sensitive, other times not sensitive enough; simple tasks take to long to accomplish, Poor battery life, Low light LCD visibility could be better, No...

Samsung NV7 OPS Review

What Digital Camera
5 February 2007
  • Summary: A top spec and great build/design is undermined by second-rate image quality that screams out for a Raw capture option.
  • Pros: Gorgeous design, Optical Picture Stabilisation, Very attractive price
  • Cons: Prefer a slightly wider zoom, Noisy images, Mushy detail

  • Summary: : Sometimes a little bit of noise is acceptable, especially if you can use the lowest ISO setting for noise free photos, but the NV7 features noise even when using ISO100. The "Smart Touch" interface is an interesting idea, but whilst it was designed to make using the camera easier, none of the...
  • Pros: Good image quality - high colour saturation (albeit with too much noise), Good macro / very good super macro mode, Excellent 2.5" screen - very clear, high resolution 230,000 pixels, Good video mode - VGA, 30fps, Sound, optical zoom available (sound mutes when zooming in/out), Can charge through ...
  • Cons: ASR / Advanced Shake Reduction produces noisy images and is of limited usefulness (especially when real image stabilisation is available)., Excessive noise at all ISO settings with black dots visible even using ISO100 (and some banding), In playback mode, the lens retracts, when you switch back t...

  • Summary: The stylish Samsung NV7 has a robust build and feature set, and cool, retro styling. Image quality isn't the best, however.

  • Summary: The new NV series represents Samsung's bid to grab a large slice of the digital compact camera market, a stepping stone to eventually becoming one of the top 3 players, and therefore competes with the likes of Canon, Sony and Kodak.

  • Summary: A well-built slimline camera with a 7x optical zoom lens, novel user interface and plenty of user-adjustable controls.Superficially, Samsung's new NV7 OPS resembles the recently-reviewed ultra-slim NV10 model but sports a longer, 7x optical zoom lens and lower-resolution (7.2-megapixel) sensor.
