Product review summary
Multifunction Convergence digital camera
The NV3 is not only a great digital camera with 7.2 mega pixels but also a perfect MP3 player, Portable Multimedia Player, Digital camcorder, Text Viewer, and much more.
Enjoy music & movies and more in immersive two-channel sound
The NV3 also has stereo speakers built in for a richer sound experience. It means you can enjoy movies with realistic sound. Moreover, NV3 has a special audio processing chip delivering 3D, Jazz, Rock, and other sound effects.
This feature takes the same shot twice, once with ASR and the other with flash. It then compares the results and lets you have the best picture of the two (i.e. flash shot if it is better than the ASR shot, and vice versa).
Advanced Shake Reduction
The ASR technology prevents the degradation of image clarity and colour common to flash photography. With ASR the effects of camera shake are reduced in lower light conditions. You can even take well exposed, sharper pictures in low light without using a flash at all. It guarantees brighter and more natural pictures.
ISO1000 Standards in Action
NV series has an auto sensitivity feature that automatically adjusts sensitivity according to the ambient exposure conditions up to ISO 1000. The high sensitivity setting of ISO 1000 enables you to take clear indoor pictures in the dark without camera shake and the resulting image blurring.
Multiple ways to Recharge
Recharging can be done using a cradle or a 24 pin USB cable, as well as by using a detachable cable. Connect the camera to a PC using a 24 pin USB cable, use the adaptor cable to plug it into a power supply, or use any other convenient method to recharge your camera.
Advanced Movie Function
The NV series supports MPEG-4 VGA (640x480, 30fps) and TVD (720x480, 20fps - NV3) size for an enhanced video shooting experience. You can even edit your movies on the camera itself, making these clever models brilliantly portable but powerful movie-makers.
11 Scene Modes and Text Recognition capability NV series have various scene modes to obtain the best picture result in a variety of settings.
The scene modes provided are Night Scene, Portrait, Children, Landscape, Text Recognition, Sunset, Dawn, Backlight, Fireworks, Beach and Snow.
