Samsung Announces Five New Digital Cameras

S, L, and NV Series extended.

Now onto the NV Series, also bolstered by two extra models.


”’NV9”’

The NV9, which looks like an update of the company’s NV4, is a 10.2-megapixel slimline camera that shares many of the features already mentioned.


Key aspects include a new inner 5x optical zoom lens (38mm – 190mm equivalent) and a couple of funky gauges reminiscent of an age where analogue readings were the norm. However, these – collectively termed the Mini-Dashboard – have nothing to do with metering and instead indicate battery level and memory card space. Like the NV4 it can double up as an mp3/PMP player too. The NV9 will be available in silver, black, and pink from September, at an RRP of £179.

”’NV100HD”’

Finally, we have the NV100HD – a 14.7-megapixel compact with a 28mm equivalent wide-angle lens. Although this is not as wide as the current NV24HD (24mm), the NV100HD now comes with version 2.0 of Samsung’s Smart Touch interface where function/setting access and image control have been extended to a high resolution 3in touchscreen LCD. For instance, you can manually rotate an image with your fingertip or delete it by drawing an X on the screen.


Like the NV24HD, the NV100HD can also capture video in high-def and comes with an HDMI interface. Samsung’s CEC protocol is also present enabling you to control the NV100HD and a compatible Samsung TV with a single remote control.


The NV100HD will be available in Silver/Red, Silver/Black, and Black, and by calling upon the company’s experience within the aerospace industry, a version fashioned from titanium should also make an appearance. The NV100HD will hit the shops from August at an RRP of £229.
