Samsung NV11 - digital camera review

 

With matte black finishes, prominent, blue-ringed lenses, and unusual touch sensor controls, Samsung's style-minded NV cameras are pretty hard to miss. Sitting at the top of the NV heap is the NV11, a 7.7-ounce, 10-megapixel camera that strikes just...

Good image quality; manual exposure controls.

Smart Touch interface takes some getting used to; sluggish when starting up.

The Samsung NV11 can produce some very nice-looking pictures, but its unique interface isn't for everyone.

Samsung NV11 review

 

The camera market is subject to many changes. And I am not only speaking of the purely technical changes or the images' perception from paper to digital, but the changes in the producers that are active in this market. Traditionally, these were the...

The Samsung NV camera series is a luxurious collection of design cameras with which it follows in the footsteps of, for instance, Canon with its IXUS series. The Samsung NV11 is a top model from the series and offers just a little more of everything;...

The Samsung NV11 digital camera derives a resolution of ten megapixels from a 1/1.8" CCD imager, and couples this with much of the feature set from last year's NV10 model, but with some interesting changes. Most signficantly, the NV10's 3x optical zoom...

Camera Review: Samsung NV11

 

Sleek, sexy, stylish... not words you often hear when talking about compact digital cameras. But hear them you will if you take Samsung's NV11 out to take pictures. Samsung's NV line certainly looks good, and the NV11 looks just as stylish as its...

The "old" NV10 was an interesting camera that ultimately disappointed me with its lackluster image quality. Does the NV11 do a better job? Find out now in our review

Stylish design, built like a brick ; 5X zoom in a relatively small package ; Large, high resolution 2.7" LCD display (though see issues below) ; Unique user interface (though see below) ; Full manual controls ; Powerful flash ; Advanced Shake Reduction...

Soft images with noise reduction artifacts, even at ISO 80 ; Redeye a big problem, even with in-camera removal tool ; Poor white balance performance under artificial light ; Awkward user interface can be frustrating; sometimes too sensitive, other...

The Samsung NV11 is a camera that excels in terms of design and features, but has more than its share of disappointments as well. As I said at the start of this section, I recommend it if you don't mind the user interface. If you're like me, however,...

Review: Samsung NV11 digital camera

 

If you can live with the Samsung NV11's portability constraints, it's an excellent choice for an all-around camera that's fun to use and equally accommodating of beginners and advanced shutterbugs.

Pleasing to hold ; Superb battery life ; Superior image quality ; Innovative Smart Touch controls ; Manual exposure settings for advanced shooters

Protruding lens not too pocket friendly ; No real image stabilization

The only significant downside to the NV11 is its lack of true image stabilization; instead, it tries to compensate for shaky hands by boosting light sensitivity to potentially noise-inducing levels. In addition, its protruding lens makes it an awkward...

Samsung Digimax NV11 Digital Camera Review

 

Compared to NV10, the new Digimax NV11 from Samsung has 5x optical zoom instead of 3x, a larger LCD, and 20% more battery life (up to 220 shots). The body design is not the most impressive on the market these days, but I'll suppose this is the last...
