Samsung NV24HD review
I own a Canon S3, and i bought the NV42 because i needed a smaler camera to take everywhere (S3 an excellent camera, but a little bulky), and this one fits in any pocket.
Construction is very good, very fast and responsive, handles low light conditions well. The smart touch interface needs some adaptation, but it pays off because it´s very good indeed
Image quality is OK, but it´s no Canon...
The HD movies look good, but the sound capture is weak.
I was able to take 190 10 mpx photos (with lots of flash), shot 6 HD movies, arround 2 minutes each, and explore lots of functions before runing out of batery.
Face detection works well, smile detection works... but sometimes you´ve to smile quite a bit.
For the price i paid (270,00€) i think it´s an excellent deal, because you get 10MPx, an ultra wide 24mm lens and HD movies.
- Heat from the battery after prolonged use. Doesn´t burn, but it´s a litle unconfortable
- Image quality could be a little better (color and sharpness)
- Sound in movies
