TheSamsung NV24-HDis a pocket camera that caught my eye when it was first announced at CES last January. What particularly caught my eye was that it claimed to be able to record HD video at 720P resolution (2180 X 720 at 30FPS) using the latest codec, H264. For a shirt pocket sized camera this seemed an amazing feat, and so I was eager to see whether there was any meat attached to these bones.

In late mid-May the NV 24 HD became genrally available and I spent a week shooting with one in various situations. My intent wasn’t to produce any great art (either still or video) but simply to see whether this roughly $300 camera would meet the needs of the amateur – in a combo still / video camera that isn’t much bigger large that a small stack of business cards.
