"Not worth it"1.5 starson by CER708
Pros: Clear pictures in daylight
Decent battery life
Having the USB cord and camera charger together is convenient
Cons: Terrible quality in low light or inside. Shots come out blurry and flash picks up tons of dust particles leaving "white orbs" ruining about 50% of any photos taken indoor with a flash. Speakers often confused for shutter release button.
Summary: The NV3 has a lot of features, but none of them are worth it if the camera takes terrible pictures. Pictures taken inside or in low light almost always come out a little blurry. The flash is really strong but picks up every speck of dust between the camera and the subject so expect to see white dots in any shot taken in low light where you use the flash. The camera also has an incredibly slow start up time and lag time between shots, so don't expect to catch anything suddenly and if you hold the button to take a picture down for too long the camera freezes and won't do anything for a good 30 seconds.
Another problem that has come up is that the speakers look like the button you push to take a picture. The problem is not when I am taking a picture, but any time I want to be in a picture I have to show people which button to push because with the two speakers, an on/off button(with a blue light CIRCLE around it) and the shutter release button (with a blue DOT) no one ever gets it right and they end up pressing the speaker (which does nothing-but they think they took a picture) or turning the camera off on accident.
When comparing photos with friends from an event we both attended, the photos from their non-Samsung cameras are always better quality-clear with no white dust particles.
Also despite that my camera is always kept in a case the "sleek black" paint is chipping off-and started to do so about 6 months after I received it.
Finally the video feature is not compatible with my Mac-the sound works-but the picture doesn't show up. Since I don't ever use the video feature this isn't a huge problem for me, and I'm sure if I did some research I could downtown something to make it work-but it would be nice to be able to see the video clips and not just hear them.
In conclusion, stay away. There are much better options for the price- If you want a good camera get a Canon or Nikon-if you want a good mp3 player get an ipod--if you want a camera that takes blurry spotted pictures with a mp3 player then get the NV3.
