Good: Great interface and stylish design
Bad: Consistently over exposes
Comment: I was sold on the Samsung nv24hd on the interface, most of the functions are there at your finger tips without having to trawl through menus. I was also encouraged by the number of positive reviews this camera has been given here and on other sites. I feel that I need to set the record straight a little. This camera over exposes across the board indoors or out, even in low light levels. I almost always have to use the manual setting to avoid bleached out skin or washed out colours in landscapes etc.. Funnily enough I chose the camera because the manual setting is so intuitive not realising I would have to use it all the time. Like many other cameras the flash setting always resets to automatic when in point and shoot mode which seems sensible but often recommends the flash when it simply is not necessary resulting in even more bleached out faces! I switched from Panasonic in search of a better user system but the picture quality is no where near as good, grainy at times with banding around light sources. Why cannot someone make a small camera that has the same basic functions as a traditional slr only with the convenience that digital technology affords? By the way, functions such as he smile detector are a waste of time, Samsung should have got the basics right first. A friend of mine has an earlier model in the nv range and is perfectly happy, maybe they just took their eye off the ball with this one.
Good: excellent 24mm lens and innovative electronics
Comment: I love this camera,
crystal images and colour.
wonderful hd moving film facility.
best wide angle available in a compact.
i carry it everywhere!
Good: Quick, Intuitive touch interface
Bad: Two pointless dials
Comment: Ditch the two ugly dials and the camera would have looked great!
The touch interface is more than enough to select between modes.
