With a not too small 10MegPix (1/1,8") sensor and electronic stabilizer the camera does not look too bad on paper. It's also compact and light weight. http://www.samsungcamera.co.uk/product/ ... cat_uid=75
Is this offer from Samsung a serious contenter for the compact point and shoots? Anyone has any experience with this camera?

Hi Thomas

I have put some pics at http:/www.flickr.com/photos/one100plus/ in the set called Samsung NV10 pics. Most are straight from the camera, a couple have been cropped, the one bordered by the palm trees, a lot.

Comments-easily fits a business shirt pocket, so a camera to go anywhere. In good days, takes good pics, but I keep the iso as low as possible.

It is slow to recycle, especially so when using the flash.

I may be missing something (manual is not great) but the ASR seems to take ages to capture and then to process. Needs a tripod I believe, so I don't bother with this feature.

Very bright screen, good contrast in pics, seems to cope with quite contrasty scenes very well (note the ones looking into the light?)

The touch buttons are easy to use after a while, BUT too sensitive when reviewing, hard to make it stop at the one you want.

In short, a very acceptable addition and I am taking more photos since I started to carry it around a lot.

Now superceded but it will do me for a while yet.

Cheers

Bernard

Thanks, Barnard for the brief review!
What is "ASR"?
SNC10010 looks quite "interesting", what is it? And SNC10092 shows Honolulu? Looks more like Greenland to me :?

Hi Thomas

Tags now fixed!!

You are close!! That is a view of the tops of some mountains as we were leaving Anchorage, taken through the aircraft window. The other ice one is a view of ice alongside the ship, broken away from Hubbard Glacier. Very overcast and wet day so accentuates the greyness of the ice.

ASR is Advanced Shake Reduction, i.e. Samsung's version of IS. But it seems to take forever to "capture" the image and "capturing" comes up on the screen after pushing the shutter button. The manual actually says "Avoid moving the camera while the [Capturing] message is displayed to achieve a better result." Makes it worthless unless on a tripod and who carries a tripod for a pocketsize camera?

But all in all a lovely little camera to use within its limitations.

Cheers

Bernard

Would be interested to see reviews of the NV15 when that comes out soon. Sounds like the 'Fast ASR' might address the above criticism? Plus face detection and higher ISO:
