Samsung NV9 digital camera

 

Versatility has always been at the heart of Samsung's compact cameras, the company happy to crowbar in features and advanced kittery normally spread across a variety of gadgets. Overall, the Samsung NV9 is an excellent little camera, multimedia...

Build and styling, simple controls, image quality, particularly at low ISO, good menus, multi media functions, retro dials

Face AF performance, excessive image noise at over ISO 400, slight shutter lag, flash performance, high ISO image noise

Overall, the Samsung NV9 is an excellent little camera, multimedia functionality provides a nice level of icing for the NV9 cake to make it a little more enticing if the excellent £179 price tag doesn’t have you reaching for your wallet.

Samsung NV9

 

We've reviewed quite of few ultra compacts lately that go all the way when it comes to packing features, but suffer considerably when it comes to performance. Samsung hopes to break away from that trend by balancing the two, with the Samsung NV9.

Samsung NV9

 

Joining Samsung's NV series of slick premium compacts is the feature-clad NV9, but can this jack of all trades be a master of any? We find out…

Attempts to be a jack of all trades, seven in fact, but succeeds as a master of a handful. For the price tag the NV9 has a lot to offer – when you get a handle on the beast you won't be too disappointed.

Samsung swing both ways with a sleek, stylish, futuristic body and cool vintage, retro dials.
