Samsung TL34HD (NV100HD) review
Actually TL34HD was beyond my expectation because I didn't expect much on samsung compacts. Compared my panasonic FX55, there is pros and cons.
Pleasant LCD quality
TL34HD's interface helps easy to select camera's function and it's responsive
Fast power-on and zooming time
Impressive auto white balance performance (much better than FX55)
Manual controls included, overall works well
Wide Autofocus range with touch AF system
Reasonable HD movie quality with good compression rate
Slow continuous shooting
Poor Autofocus accuracy, especially in low light
Color noise in dark side can be problem even at low ISO, sometimes
Unimpressive image quality at high ISO ( Better than samsung's predecessors, but still not good )
Unimpressive battery life
Review interface is somewhat awkward
* Other things
Overall image quality is acceptible, actually better than FX55
but considered it's position and specification(premium compact, 14.7Mpx), IQ doesn't do it's job fully.
Default dynamic range is actually not so good, but it can be modified via some post-processing options.
There is a odd heating after taking some picture of the camera.
