Samsung NV3 Is Part of the Premium NV Series

Samsung Camera has announced the NV3, one of three new camera models in their new NV series of digital still cameras. The NV3 is a 7-megapixel digital still camera that features Samsung's exclusive Digimax Converter software to play movies and MP3 files. Samsung's new NV Series of digital still cameras all have bodies in brushed black, stainless steel and a trademark Samsung blue ring located around the lens.

At the heart of the NV3 is a 7-megapixel digital still camera measuring 3.7" x 2.2" x 0.7" with a 2.5-inch, high resolution LCD display. 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 equipped with Samsung's state-of-the-art Advanced Shake Reduction (ASR) technology to combat hand shake. 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. The unique technology uses proprietary algorithms to interpret sharpness and color information to deliver an image that looks like it has been taken with the flash. As the flash is disabled, side effects, such as red eye, are prevented.

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 large, 2.5-inch color display. The user-friendly 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 even listen to their music while taking photos.

In addition to playing video, the NV3 can also make movies using MPEG-4, the high-compression, high-quality 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. For steady videos, the NV3 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. The NV3 features 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.

The NV3 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.

The NV3 features 16 MB of internal memory and comes bundled with ear buds and a powerful lithium ion battery.

The Samsung NV3 has an MSRP of $349.99 and will be available in Fall of 2006.
