It's little unorthodox in its control.Two sets of buttons act as a grid select one button and it brings up options then select the buttons at the side to chose. Piece of cake when you get used to it.
What i don't like... The USB connection is via a special lead with a special plug (i havent checked out what happens if I lose/misplace this.....££££ ??? ) The usb end of this lead fits either your pc for transfer or a mains unit to charge.
What i'm REALLY unhappy about is the socket for this plug is on the underside of the camera. I dont want to think what will happen if i put this camera on a damp/wet surface by accident. OK so 99% of the time the camera wont get in to this situation but id be happier if it were on the side or at least covered in some way.
The flash is a pop up type which you have to put down yourself when you switch the camera off... tried to put it the case with the flash up a couple of times-how long before i do some damage ???
What you get in the box
special usb lead
instruction manual (basic)
cd with full manual(pdf) and digimaster software(though little better than windows explorer in thumbnail mode)
In spite of the above points it is a really good camera I trusted a Eurodisney trip with it and was not disappointed.It seems to cope well with all situations
In movie mode it take up to 640x480 in AVI and it is very good.
(My olympus takes .mov format - a disaster as they have to be converted to burn to dvd) These avi movies (not sure what the base format is mpeg2 ?? will burn with nero no prob.)
it also takes SD cards which are cheap as chips.
Hope some of this helps.
For the interested out there, here are the niggles:
The matrix buttons for the menus on the rear of the camera work very well, although they do take some getting used to. Gotta say they are really cool and if you're the kind of person who loves your friends cooing over your gadgets, you'll be very pleased. They are slightly counter-intuitive though, in that to flick from one control category to another, you can't just flick from one to the next, you have either to press "back" from where you are and then choose your next sub-menu, or deselect your current category. Given that the whole point of this camera's contols IS the matrix buttons, this does not make much sense. Generally the controls themselves are not that friendly or intuitive. I'm pretty au fait with these types of gadgets but it took me a month to work out how to view videos on the camera itself without transfering to PC. It goes without saying that the manual was no help.
The screen menu display is monochrome. Not at all important, but strange and slightly distracting.
Each control beeps annoyingly. You can disable the beep, but once you turn the camera off then on again, the beep is back.
Yes, the zoom works in video mode. Fabulous. However, the microphone cuts out at the same time, so you're left with zooming silence. Not fabulous.
The English used on the menus is that charming Koreanese - "Not Support", "Connecting Computer" etc.
If you can cope with these points, and there are probably more I haven't found yet, you should snap this one up.
Go for a Cannon :D
I bought this camera 6 months ago. Got to use it and really it works well.
My only criticism is the size, the matrix buttons (or whatever it's called) as it could have been replaced with a 4 direction pad...
but worst of all, and you can't see that from these shots, is that when you need the flash it pops out before taking the photo but then you have to close it manually. If you leave it out so you can quickly take the next photo, it won't fit in its case.
trust me, go for a Cannon, that's their domain and they're really good at it.
now if you really insist then... mine is for sale :D
When i went to get it looked at, the camera shop said that it'd cost more than the camera was worth to repair it, so I've had to opt out for a cheaper Samsung D75, costing £70 instead of the £180 the NV10 cost a year ago. The eBay shop owner wouldn't contact me back (they had their positive feedback, they didn't need anything else). All this because I didn't purchase some cheap insurance...
The NV10 is an absolutely FANTASTIC camera and has served me for 1000+
top-class photos in the 8months I had it, but it has to be said that the microphone cuts out on video at random intervals. It's more of a photo camera, but the finger-slidey control system is pretty funky and the decent-sized screen isn't to be sniffed at.
