Samsung NV7 OPS review

 

Samsung NV7 OPS

Long zoom for its size; pause during movie capture; voice notes.

No optical viewfinder; LCD washes out and has narrow viewing angle; all-around noisy photos with poor white balance; camera automatically mutes audio while zooming in movies.

The Samsung NV7 OPS' novel, engaging interface can't compensate for merely adequate performance and so-so photo quality.

Samsung NV7

 

Somewhere between pocket digicam and digital SLR lies the 7.2-megapixel Samsung NV7 OPS. At its heart, the SD card-based NV7 is still a point-and-shoot camera,

Incredibly intuitive control system with no learning curve. Powerful shot management features. All-metal, super-solid construction. Minimal shutter lag of about 0.6 seconds with flash and focus. Nifty in-camera effects, like an animated GIF creator....

Big and heavy. Poorly balanced. Imperfect color and image stabilization in shots. Lens does not retract. Twice the weight of many pocket cams

Back in July Korean giant Samsung announced a new series of cameras, the NV (New Vision) range that finally, firmly put the 'cheap n cheerful' plastic camera image behind them with three new all-black, all-metal models packed with features and...

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...

Samsung NV7 OPS

 

In playback mode these buttons work as a sort of "scroll wheel" -- just run your fingers across the button buttons to move between photos. Sometimes the buttons are too sensitive (like when browsing photos) and sometimes not sensitive enough (like when...

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...

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...

The Samsung NV7 OPS is a camera with a lot of nice features that ultimately is as let down for reasons I listed earlier. If you are intrigued by its design and features and will be sticking to small prints then it may be worth a look (just buy a spare...

Samsung NV7 Digital Camera

 

The first thing I noticed on the NV7 is the rather large lens piece; very impressive. Often overlooked on cameras in this segment is what I consider to be among the most vital aspect - Glass - its ability to accurately and abundantly allow light...

If you want to simply use it as a "point and shoot" camera for sending e-photo's, then the NV7 is worth a look as a it comes in at a competitive price, decent image quality and is very intuitive to use.

Is this camera as good as its lens?

This 7MP starlet from Samsung's new NV series may look old school, but lurking inside is a jaw-droppingly great new control system. Let's have a look, shall we?

Innovative control system. Great images. Old-school Leica styling.

No lens cover. LCD could be brighter.
