Samsung's NV100HD: the only 28mm wide angle snapper with 14.7Mp

The NV100HD becomes the flagship model in Samsung’s NV compact camera series and users navigate around the snapper’s 3in "hVGA" - a larger-resolution downscaled for "more detail and sharper images".

It's touch-sensitive too. A “Matrix Menu” allows a photographer to execute functions with their fingers, rather than a stylus. For example, if you want to delete a hideous shot, then drawing an 'X' on screen sends the image to the bin.

Samsung’s gone one better than standard image stabilisation and included "Dual Image Stabilisation" on the NV100HD. The feature combines optical and digital image stabilisation to create what Samsung claimed will be “vastly improved image quality” and “outstanding shots without the blur, even in low light conditions”.

Beauty Shot improves skin tone in snaps

Videos are recorded at up to 30 frames per second at 720p resolution. There’s an HDMI port on the camera for connecting the snapper your HD TV.

All the usual settings are featured, ranging from face and blink detection to smile recognition. However, a mode dubbed "Beauty Shot" claims to retouch the subject’s facial skin for a “brighter and smoother skin tone” – without use of Pentapeptides or Botox.

Samsung’s NV100HD will be available in the UK next month for £230 (€260/$460).
