Samsung NV7 OPS review

The NV7 is very well constructed to the extent that it feels like it is almost a solid block of metal. The switchgear and general construction is similarly top-class. It has an unusual inteface that soon becomes intuitive and is not hard to use. An annoyance is that the image stabilisation system seems to switch itself off form time to time and it is easy to accidently fully press the shutter before focussing is finished. A more steady thinking approach gives reliable images and after a false start the camera quickly started performing well for me.

See this thread for more information:


Out of focus shots and blurring until I remembered to check that the IS was still set and wait until the sometimes slowish focus had locked in before fully pressing the shutter.
