Review Samsung NV3

Samsung’s 7.2 megapixel NV3 digital camera does it all, from supporting most audio/video fromats to 15MB of internal memory. Other features include a a 2.5-inch LCD display, SD card slot, and a 3x optical lens.

Trusted Reviews via Digtial Camers@TechFresh.

It is beautifully designed, extremely well made, handles comfortably and performs well photographically, although the “bonus extras” of MP3 and MPEG4 playback, and especially the text viewer, are really nothing special

Canon EOS 400D Review

by Johan on September 4, 2006

Canon EOS 400D

Cameralabs produced a great in-depth review of the Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel XTi camera.

Ultimately the Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi is a great entry-level digital SLR which improves on its predecessor in many respects. It has higher resolution without compromising noise levels, a wide variety of anti-dust features, a bigger screen which doubles-up for detailed shooting information, the AF system of its bigger brother and fast overall handling. The only thing that’s missing is a cheap lens bundle with Image Stabilisation. This will undoubtedly have potential buyers carefully weighing it up against the Sony Alpha A100 which costs much the same, while those looking for a tougher product may be tempted by the Nikon D80.
