A decidedly average compact camera

Multimedia capability, good colour balance

Lens could have been wider, small screen, confusing controls

The NV4 is a camera that is average at all tasks, whether it’s photography, video recording or multimedia playback. It’s stylish and simple, so if these factors are important then it could be the camera for you.
