The Samsung NV40 Digital Camera incorporates a 10.0 megapixel effective resolution 1/2.33" CCD to provide superb image detail, and the 3x zoom Schneider Lens ensures that your images will be crisp and sharp. The high quality 2.5" wide-view LCD allows you to view brighter, clearer images, while the innovative Smart Touch user interface, makes it possible to quickly navigate and set menu items or view pictures.
In addition, Samsung's Dual Image Stabilization system utilizes a lens-shift method of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to minimize the effect of hand shake and other camera movements and Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) that takes advantage of the cameras high sensitivity (up to ISO 3200) to enable you to take better, clearer pictures indoors or in lower light conditions. Other unique features of the Samsung NV40 include Auto Contrast Balance (ACB), Face Detection with Red-eye Fix, and built-in Special Effects.
10.0 Megapixel Resolution
The NV40 captures images with up to 10.0 megapixel resolution resulting in picture quality of unmatched beauty - even at print sizes up to 30 x 40". Additionally, the cameras image processor allows for rich gradation of color with fast picture processing.
3x Optical Zoom Schneider Lens
The superior quality Schneider lens produces crystal clear images with a 3x zoom range equivalent to 34-102mm on a 35mm camera. The camera also has a 5x digital zoom function that combine to offers a total zoom ratio of 15x. Each lens surface is multi-coated to minimize the "ghost" or "flare" phenomenon, and the specially designed combination of aspherical and a low dispersion lens elements prevents all chromatic aberration and distortion.
Dual Image Stabilization
The NV40 digital camera has a Dual Image Stabilization system that combines a lens-shift method of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which compensates for hand shake and other camera movements with a Digital Image Stabilization (DIS), which utilizes the cameras image processor and high sensitivity (up to ISO 3200) to reduce blur caused by movement of the subject or due to low light shooting conditions. Concurrent use of OIS and DIS correction ensures clear picture quality in any shooting condition.
Face Detection Function
The Face Detection function detects up to nine different faces, enabling you to take perfect portraits and group shots. In addition to automatically adjusting focus and brightness to optimum levels, this feature also senses and removes red-eye with the auto Red-eye Fix algorithm, allowing you to easily take more natural, flattering portrait shots, and without the need for further post-shot image editing on your computer.
ACB (Auto Contrast Balance) Function
The Auto Contrast Balance function automatically compensates the brightness of objects in challenging light environments to ensure a perfectly exposed image, and provide more natural looking images under backlight conditions, or when there is large brightness difference within the frame.
Large 2.5" LCD with Smart Touch Controls
The 2.5 inch LCD monitor provides a wide clear screen so that you can easily frame and view your images, and the Smart Touch user interface makes it possible to quickly navigate and set menu items or view pictures. The unique arrangement of the Smart Touch buttons combined with 2.5 inch LCD on the back of the camera enables users to conveniently select and control functions using horizontal and vertical keys, and provides intuitive control over the camera unlike anything seen before.
