Summary: Solid, built like a tank but well thought out minimalist design not flashy toy like others. By the way, it also do decent videos.
Pros: NV7 is one of the most versatile compact cameras in the market. It features full sized Schneider Vario lens, full manual, programmed, video and auto controls neatly packaged in a display panel with unique touch sensitive switches. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the camera is capable of f...
Cons: Few so far but considering the performance of the camera, it truly requires 10 - 12 megapixels. Manual focus controls lags a little.
Excerpt: Love the design and build of this camera Tons of features makes this camera fun to play with. As for image quality, there is visible noise at anything over ISO 400 but got to remember that this is a point and shoot camera. Can't expect it to perform like a DSLR.
Excerpt: The NV7 is very well constructed to the extent that it feels like it is almost a solid block of metal. The switchgear and general construction is similarly top-class. It has an unusual inteface that soon becomes intuitive and is not hard to use.
Excerpt: I habe been very dissapointed by this camera when <i first took it out of the box. I must say I wasn't expecting much and as I found a good deal and was in love with it's looks, I went for it. Well, after some time I took it out again and took some more shots, played around with its features.
Excerpt: I just purchased this camera at CC for $249 and it came with a free 1 gig card. I have been looking at it for a long time but have been reluctant to purchase because of the various reviews. I have used rangefinder cameras for years and miss the Leica series for their iconic quality.
Excerpt: Really disappointing image quality, need I say more? Ok, I will. i brought this to replace my wife's 7 year old Sony. I was sold on the design, spec, and a plethora manual controls. A large, brand-name lens would promise good photos, right? Wrong! The image is always soft and blurry.
Excerpt: I just had to do this because someone gave the camera five stars all the way..... I don´t wanna buy this camera based on a review with no words.... just five stars - I can´t take that seriosly. (I don´t owne this camera but I am interested). Daniel Denmark
Excerpt: Pros are, easy to use, very good build quality, stacked with features, shake reduction works, this would be a top camera except for one thing. Cons, Noise Noise Noise, any ISO over 160 is pretty useless if you want a decent sized image.
Excerpt: I was looking forward to owning this camera since I have first seen the advertisement. The buttons are difficult to select what you want. 3 out of 5 images taken were not in focus. When zooming all the way it would almost never capture a clear picture (even on a tripod).
Excerpt: Extremely elegant and well built camera which unrotunately takes noisy and out of focus images. It's very grainy over 100 ASA and the OPS doesn't work well at the telephoto end. I really wanted to like this camera.
