Samsung NV11 Reviews

T3.uk reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“IThe rest of the camera follows suit. All the buttons have a healthy amount of feedback, the picture quality is spot-on, and you get a full set of manual controls to boot. The Smart Touch system means you can dial in shutter times and apertures nearly instantly, giving you full control of your photography if you want, or full automatic functionality if you don’t.”

MacWorld reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“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.”
Rating: ★★★★½

CNETasia reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“The good: Good image quality; manual exposure controls. The bad: Smart Touch interface takes some getting used to; sluggish when starting up. The bottom line: The Samsung NV11 can produce some very nice-looking pictures, but its unique interface isn’t for everyone.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Cameras.uk reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“The test photos I took with the Samsung Digimax NV11 were noticeably sharper than I see from most other digital cameras. With manual exposure controls giving you the ability to set shutter speeds and aperture sizes this camera is worth a closer look if you are looking for a step up from a regular point and shoot digital camera. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PopPhoto reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“Images for the most part came out sharp and contrasty, a testament to the quality of the Schneider-Kreuznach lens. At the long end of the zoom range, however, the corners of images got quite soft, enough to easily notice even in small prints”

Let’sGoDigital reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“The test samples up to 400 ISO look just fine, but at 800 ISO and up, the amount of noise becomes disturbing.. The appearance is an excellent piece of design with which Samsung can mingle in the top… Whenever you are looking for a new camera, if it were up to me you can place the Samsung NV11 on your list to compare to others! ”

DCRP reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“Camera performance was generally good, though the NV11 had a few week spots. Its 2 second startup time was about average, as were its focusing speeds. Low light focusing wasn’t as good as I would’ve expected from a camera with an AF-assist lamp. Continuous shooting isn’t the NV11′s specialty. In the normal continuous mode, the camera chugs along at just 0.6 frames/second.”

Samsung NV11 video review by TigerDirect;


PhotoReview.AU reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“The flash needed ISO 400 sensitivity to illuminate an average-sized room and produced slightly warm pictures at ISO 800 and above. Noise was visible in long exposures at high ISO settings but at a lower level than most competing cameras. A reddish cast was also observed in long exposures, particularly at low ISO settings. Close-ups were competently handled. ”

Megapixel reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“The image quality it offers, when set to the highest (Super Fine) setting, is generally very good. Photographs captured under natural light turn out very well, and it is only under mixed lighting and when the flash is used that the auto white balance can have difficulty.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Unbeatable.UK reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“Image quality is very good with the lens ensuring that they are focused from corner to corner and detail is brilliant, thanks to the 10.1 MP sensor which also ensures that colour reproduction is very natural and bright. Images were good at ISO 100 & 200 but when we assessed the images taken at ISO 800 and higher we found that they had high levels of image noise and were unfortunately unusable. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CEN reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“The macro capability on this unit suffers a bit in its focusing, but the zoom and wide angle capabilities are quite good. Picture quality is what you see in the sample images. Don’t forget to click them for the full, unedited view…For those who are looking for a fairly high level of sophistication in a package that is very easy to use, the NV11 should be on your list of cameras to consider.”

MacUser.uk reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“..NV11 also produces excellent output. Photos were well resolved, and colours realistic throughout our tests. It was sometimes a little slow to focus in darker conditions, such as when we used it at a concert, but the flash is well balanced and has a good throw, and we certainly wouldn’t hesitate to use it at parties, in pubs and outdoors at night when lighting may be an issue.”
Rating: ★★★★★

ComputerActive reviews the Samsung NV11 and writes;
“Good points: 10-megapixel resolution, Better-than-average 5x optical zoom, Sharp, intelligently exposed images. Bad points: Smart Touch is fiddly, Noisy images above ISO400 setting. Overall An impressively constructed digital camera with a long zoom and, in the right conditions, decent image quality.”
Rating: ★★★★☆
