Samsung Camera introduces a new model to its revolutionary NV series of advanced point & shoot digital cameras - the eight Megapixel Samsung NV8. The Samsung NV8 camera features the sleek, elegant design and innovative Smart Touch interface that have become the hallmarks of the NV Series, and set the camera family apart from competitive offerings in the market. For outstanding image quality, the Samsung NV8 features premium Schneider optics with a 3x optical zoom. On the back of the cameras' brushed black, stainless steel bodies, lies Samsung's Smart Touch user interface. Smart Touch enables easy navigation of the cameras' comprehensive feature sets by simply sliding a finger across the control buttons positioned around the cameras' 2.5" LCD screens.
Samsung NV8 camera - Design
"The Samsung NV8 represents the next generation of Samsung's award-winning NV series of digital cameras," said Stewart Henderson, Vice President Marketing, Samsung Opto-Electronics America. "This is not your typical family of point-and-shoot digital camera. At Samsung, we take great pride in the NV series because of the firsts that it brings to market, including our revolutionary Smart Touch interface, as well as the WOW factor that makes the cameras stand out from the crowd. The Samsung NV8 is targeted towards the experienced digital camera owner looking for a step up model that breaks free of the 'me-too' look and feel that many manufacturers often follow," concluded Mr. Henderson.
Samsung NV8 - Face Detection
The new Samsung NV8 camera features Samsung's Face Detection technology, which makes taking pictures of family and friends a snap. Samsung's Face Detection feature detects up to nine faces and automatically adjusts focus and exposure to ensure better composition and image quality. Additionally, with 14 scene modes to choose from, including Night, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-Up, Text, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow, Café, Food, and Self-Shot, shooters can effortlessly adjust the camera and capture the best image possible in any setting. All images can be saved to each of the cameras' 20MB of internal memory or to an external SDHC/SD card with a guaranteed maximum of 8GB.
Samsung NV8 - Sensitivity and Noise reduction
The Samsung NV8 can also shoot at ISO 3200, and boast an improved Advanced Shake Reduction (ASR) feature as well as Samsung's new Auto Contrast Balance (ACB) and Image Noise Reduction modes. ACB automatically adjusts the brightness of subjects composed in harsh lighting, such as those that are back-lit, and the Image Noise Reduction helps limit the amount of noise in captured images, especially those shot at higher ISO settings. No matter what lighting environment shooters find themselves in, they can rest assured that the Samsung NV8 will deliver uncompromising results.
Samsung NV8 digital camera - Video and Resolution
The Samsung NV8 also includes a high-resolution movie mode, with the ability to record at VGA resolution (640x480) at a maximum frame rate of 30fps. Shooters can also take advantage of the cameras' movie stabilizers and 3x optical zooms while recording video and with Samsung's Successive Recording mode, can pause, and then resume filming without having to save the clips as individual files.
