With 14MP, this sensor size and this price the camera should be real crap. I think 5MP would be a lot nicer.

I'm still soldiering on with my 3.2MP Powershot A75! Almost no grain at higher ISOs. Remember when it was said that 6MP was all you needed for a A4 300dpi print?

Ridiculous. I would not even bother reviewing these cameras any more, not until they make some claim of image quality improvement or noise reduction or make some other technological quantum leap. I mean, it's just a complete waste of time resources.





15MP in a cr@ppy compact camera with a hole the size of Paris Hilton's brain to get the light through...ain't gonna work! Anyone would be excused for thinking the only reason they're making the MP so large is so that they sell more hard drives needed to store the images!

lifethroughalens - If I didn't review the less-than-perfect cameras, people wouldn't know not to buy them. However to be fair to Samsung, the NV100HD isn't really a "crappy compact". It is well made, has a lot of good features and performs well. It's really only that overcrowded sensor that lets it down. If it has the 10MP sensor from the NV9 ir would be a lot better.
