Samsung NV9 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.


The level of detail is very good, although the image does have a hint of being over-processed.


The lens produces very little barrel distortion. Please excuse the lack of my usual distortion shots, there was a lorry parked in front of my favourite wall!


The wide-angle end of the zoom is equivalent to 38mm, a bit narrow even for this type of camera.


The long end of the 5x zoom is equivalent to 190mm, a good medium telephoto. However there is some camera shake on this shot, at a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second.

The analogue dials are awesome, truly one hell of a USP. I'd have one of these over a low-end IXUS.
