The NV10 is also equipped with Samsung's state-of-the-ASR technology for image stabilization. The ASR function provides enhanced image clarity by electronically compensating for excess hand shake and improving color in environments lacking sufficient lighting where the use of the flash is not desirable.
As with the entire NV Series, the NV10 can record in VGA (640x480) at 30fps. The NV10 also includes a movie stabilizer function that automatically detects and corrects minor lateral and vertical camera movement. For additional control, the continuous video recording function allows the user to pause and resume video recording at any time, while the built-in movie editing function allows users to edit video in-camera. There are also several special effects functions for creative control in-camera, such as Color Effect, Highlight, Photo Frame, Negative and Composite Shot. Color effects include B/W, sepia, blue, green and red.
Like the NV3 and NV7OPS, the NV10 features 11 scene modes, including Night, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Close-up, Sunset, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach & Snow and Text Recognition. Text Recognition, a feature unique to Samsung digital still cameras, allows users to shoot documents such as books, papers and magazines and then extract text from the image taken using the bundled “Digimax Reader” text recognition software.
All three cameras will be available this fall. The Samsung NV3 will have an MSRP of $349.99, the Samsung NV7 OPS has an MSRP of $449.99 and the Samsung NV10 will retail at an MSRP of $399.99.
