Excellent metallic body and good picture quality. Unique system of highlight buttons takes some learning but works well when you are up to speed. Problems: Secondary reason for buying this camera was for the AVI/MPEG4 movie mode enabling me to only take one shirt-pocket sized camera on holidays i.e. for stills and movies. Very disappointing in that the red vertical streaking prevalent in similar cameras mars an otherwise good performance. Seems that this is an inherent problem caused by the ...

I have recently bought NV15 and made about 300 shots. It is very nice dcam with good quality and excellent design. Especially I like smart buttons which are extremely user friendly.

Perhaps I bought rejected camera.

I have yet to look up stuff in ...

This is in no way a "me too" camera. It is so different from the norm that it is quite a gamble for Samsung. The solid, mini rangefinder look they went after is magnificent. The menu system and usability are so different yet a head above anything I have ever used. Photo quality is a subjective thing and this camera will be loved by some and hated by many. I would describe this as the anti-Fuji. Yes there is noise, even at ISO 100. BUT the Noise Reduction is kept from intruding on the overall ...
