Samsung NV3 digital camera - EXCLUSIVE


People no longer want just good pictures when it comes to their digital camera, but to look good taking them as well. So can Samsung's latest approach with its new NV series be the ticket to stealing the lead from more traditional market leaders like...

Styling, picture quality, ability to play MP3 and videos

7 megapixels is a bit of an overkill, we found the battery cover kept coming undone

The NV3 is a killer camera that oozes style and performance. The 7 megapixel resolution is a bit of an overkill in our mind, however the image quality is second to none.

Review: Samsung NV3 digital camera


The Propaganda Yes, that's the Samsung NV3, as in eNVy. Strangely, on the box the tagline is "A digital camera that others can only envy" which seems to refer directly to Samsung's competitors, rather than consumers. Odd.

Samsung NV3


Will this device turn the other manufacturers green with NV?

It looks good but the design niggles and poor image quality mean the NV3 doesn't cut the mustard.

Samsung Digimax NV3


Style and slim design ; MP3 player

Small internal memory ; Red eye ; Shutter lag

The design and style of the Samsung Digimax NV3 really appeals to me. It is one of the slimmest digital cameras you will find and fit into a pocket without any problem at all. It can handle most photographic opportunities and is reasonably priced.

Samsung NV3


The Samsung NV3 Digital Camera is the latest ultra compact 7 megapixel digital camera from Samsung, it features MP3 and Video playback with stereo sound.

Good image quality - high colour saturation ; Very good value for money ; MP3 Player ; Video player built in with very good compression ; ASR - Advanced Shake Reduction can work well in some situations - but isn't as good as real anti-shake ; Very good...

Review: Samsung NV3


A camera with an mp3 player and movie playback functions, surely that can't work! We find out...

PMP and MP3 player functions, design of camera, usb/power cable, button layout

Placement of lens, poor quality of images (noise and fringing), 2.5mm headphone socket isn't the standard here

From a multi-function point of view the NV3 performs quite well, the video and music modes working better than other PMPs I've seen and the LCD and speakers being up to the job. However as a camera the NV3 is lacking. The sensor seems to be inadequate...

Samsung NV3 Digital Camera (7.2MP, 3072x2304, 3x Opt, 15MB Internal Memory, SD/MMC Slot)


The Samsung NV3 ($250 as of February 15, 2007) is more than an inexpensive 7-megapixel camera--it's an elegant-looking multimedia device. Unfortunately, its fashionable appearance turns out to be its best characteristic.

Attractive, thin-profile case ; Plays music through built-in speakers

Image quality is lackluster ; Battery life is below average

The stylish NV3 has built-in speakers and earbuds for listening to music, but battery life and image quality are subpar.
