The Samsung NV11 is has a sleek black finish that resists fingerprints complimented by a slim blue ring around the edge of the lens which give it a look of simple elegance. Well balanced the NV11 feels solid in your hand. And for those of us of the female persuasion, its extremely fingernail friendly.
Small in size and rich in features the Samsung NV11 is a 10.1 Mega-pixels, 5x optical zoom, Smart Touch Technology, a 2.7 inch LCD, MPEG-4 video, Face Recognition technology, advanced shake reduction, 20MB internal memory and ISO up to 1600 so it takes good pictures even in low light situations, in a small camera that is available for under $300.00 I don't know how Samsung accomplished this ....but I'm glad they did.
Let me begin by saying that I am far from the best photographer around. I aim, I shoot and I prey that they photo comes out clean and not blurry. Digital cameras come in and out of my office and I don't get overly attached to them. The truth is until the NV11 showed up I just grabbed what ever camera was closest when I needed to shoot photos for the site and whatever was smallest when I was packing my gear bag.
That was my "MO" until the first time I used the Samsung NV11. Let me think...... have I used anything else since that day? Only to take the box shot of the NV 11 for this review.
Why do I have a sudden attachment to one particular digital camera?
Because this one actually does what Samsung claims it will do. The Samsung NV11 Display is large enough to actually see, it's easy to use and takes great photos indoors and out and in low light -even for those of us who grab, point and shoot while moving or at moving objects. Smart touch technology means I can change a setting or turn off the flash at without jumping through hoops or getting out the manual every time I need to do something. Add to that It takes up very little room in my purse or my computer bag, its lightweight and the majority of my Tablet PC's and UMPCS have SD slots in them. I can charge it from the wall or from any on of my Tablets with the included USB cable and the fact that its a great looking camera certainly doesn't hurt.
What's in the Box:
"L" shaped configuration of buttons on the back of the camera for smart touch technology allow you to change setting quickly and easily.

Notice how well you can see his eyes, whiskers and even individual hairs in his fur as well as each and every key on the Fujitsu Tablet PC.
Its not like I had time to compose this photo - If I get to close to him when he has taken over a machine he bites, so anything other than point, zoom and shoot when he has claimed a Tablet PC for his own is out of the question.

Advanced Shake Reduction
