Samsung's Stylish NV3 Digital Camera is Released

Samsung is going to ship its NV3 digital still camera soon. The NV3 is a 7-megapixel camera that features Samsung's Digimax Converter software to play movies and MP3 files. The NV3 is a state-of-the-art digital still camera featuring SHD optics with the added convenience of a Personal Media Player. Samsung's new NV Series of cameras are recognizable by their sleek bodies in brushed black, stainless steel and a trademark Samsung blue ring located around the lens of each model. At the heart of the NV3 is a 7-megapixel digital still camera which measures a mere 3.7" x 2.2" x 0.7" with a 2.5-inch LCD display. For high image quality, the NV3 integrates a 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 38-114 mm in 35 mm format) capability with Samsung's exclusive SHD lens technology.

The NV3 is powered with Samsung's state-of-the-art Advanced Shake Reduction technology to combat hand shake and ensure crystal-clear images. For entertainment on-the-go, users simply use the included Digimax Converter software to easily convert their favorite MP3 files or watch their favorite video content on the 2.5" color display. The software can convert MPEG, AVI, MOV, WMV and ASF files for viewing on the NV3. For music on-the-go, the software can also convert MP3 and WAV audio files in several simple steps. The innovative software also allows users to view subtitles, adjust the screen size and crop and stretch the image to fit the screen as desired. Users can listen to their entertainment using the included ear buds or on the dual stereo speakers discreetly located on the camera, and for a seamless experience, even listen to their music while taking photos.

The NV3 can also make movies using MPEG-4, the high-compression video format. The NV3 can record in VGA (640x480) at 30fps, for smoother video and a bigger view of the movie on LCD and TV screens.

The NV3 features 11 scene modes including Night, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-up, Sunset, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow and Text Recognition. The Auto Macro function automatically adjusts shooting distance and focus. By using the macro button, users can set the camera to automatically adjust distance and focus from between 5cm to infinity. The NV3 also includes a super macro mode that enables subjects to be photographed up to as close as 1 cm.
