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).
