Samsung NV3 Digital Camera (7.2MP, 3072x2304, 3x Opt, 15MB Internal Memory, SD/MMC Slot)


The Samsung NV3 ($250 as of February 15, 2007) is more than an inexpensive 7-megapixel camera--it's an elegant-looking multimedia device. Unfortunately, its fashionable appearance turns out to be its best characteristic.

Attractive, thin-profile case ; Plays music through built-in speakers

Image quality is lackluster ; Battery life is below average

The stylish NV3 has built-in speakers and earbuds for listening to music, but battery life and image quality are subpar.

Samsung NV3 review


All-in-one devices seem like a good idea on paper, but when they finally come out, they tend to disappoint. Historically, putting a camera together with an MP3 player cripples both functions. Samsung tries to change that with the NV3, a 7-megapixel...

Solid images; handy media-player functions.

Heavy fringing; awkward movie format in media-player mode; unresponsive zoom rocker.

This camera-cum-media player doesn't excel at any of its functions, but the Samsung NV3 could be a solid choice if you don't want to buy both a camera and an MP3 player.

Samsung NV3 Digital Camera - Express Review


The Samsung NV3 combines a 7.2 megapixel CCD sensor with a Samsung SHD-branded 3x optical zoom lens with a fairly standard 38 to 114mm equivalent focal range. To compose shots, the slim NV3 skips any optical viewfinder in favor of its large 2.5 inch...

When you do take pictures in either a normal 4:3 or 16:9 wide aspect ratio, the Samsung NV3 has 11 Scene modes to master difficult situations without mastering the intricacies of photography

Ultimately all the bells and whistles in the world don't matter if the camera's photo quality isn't up to snuff. How does the NV3 compete in the crowded ultra-compact field? Find out now in our review

Very good photo quality (though see issues below) ; Compact, very stylish and well built body ; Large, high resolution 2.5" LCD display (though see issues below) ; Can play movies, MP3s, and text files too ; AF-assist lamp, decent low light focusing ;...

Details a bit muddy; color saturation drops at high ISOs; occasional overexposure ; Redeye a big problem; removal tool does not help ; LCD outdoor visibility isn't the greatest ; No optical viewfinder ; Using ASR (advanced shake reduction) feature...

If you want a stylish, ultra-compact camera that does more than just take pictures than the Samsung NV3 is well worth a look. It's not the best camera in its class, but it's still quite good, and it earns my recommendation.
