Samsung NV15 review
Nov 1, 2007

What great build quality & performance. Coming from a DSLR background and having used digicams for over a decade, I'm quite pleased with the NV15. I shoot mostly w/ a Nikon D70 with a plethora of pro lenses.

While the NV15 doesn't offer the same level of quality as my DSLR, it does offer a great point and shoot solution and contrary to what many reviews on the NV15 and its siblings have said, the Samsung interface is quite intuitive, easy to learn and use. I have yet to look up stuff in their manual.

Problems:

About the only problem I've had to contend with is the noise at higher ISO levels (400+).

Feature enhancements I'd like to see include...
- The Auto ISO that allows you to define the Max ISO it move to.

- Auto flash close/retraction. I've read about the dangers in leaving the flash open so it's always a concern. I wish they would have made it auto retracting but I don't know of too many camera's that do that.
