Samsung scores Chelsea camera duo

NV4 and L100 rebranded as "The Pensioners"

Top three mobile application threats

Fans of the “The Blues” rejoice, 'cause in addition to wearing Chelsea Football Club’s strip to Stamford Bridge, you can now snap Lampard and the gang on Samsung’s Chelsea compact cameras.

Samsung's Chelsea NV4, but does it know the offside rule?

The firm’s launched two eight-megapixel cameras: the NV4 and the L100, but both have already been announced before as non-Chelsea branded cameras. The main difference this time around is that the NV4 comes in a limited edition titanium body and both have Chelsea’s crest on their fronts.

Nonetheless, the NV4 includes image stabilisation and a feature for removing red-eyes from images. The 3x optical zoom is adequate, but it won’t get you the close-up images of footballers like those on the pitch’s edge get without the aid of a snapper. The NV4 also plays MP3 format audio and has a 2.5in LCD display.

Samsung’s rival Chelsea L100 is also limited edition, but includes all the same features as the original, such as face recognition, a 3x optical zoom and a 2.5in LCD.

Both snappers are available now, with the NV4 priced at £150 (€180/$300) and the L100 at £100 (€130/$200).

A Register Hardware review of the NV4 is available here.
