The NV4 is more than a camera with a multimedia player for MP3s and video. It also comes in four colours, plus a Chelsea FC livery.

It has 8.2MP, a top sensitivity of ISO 3200 and digital image stabilisation using auto ISO control to maintain fast shutter speeds. A new feature is the self-portrait mode – the camera bleeps when your face is in the frame: useful for arm-length self-portraiture. Face Detection is featured, and you also get a choice of eight photographic ‘looks’ within the Photo Style Selector, giving easy ways to change the colour and tonality of images. The design is slick, with a tough all-metal case. The LCD screen and menu also play host to a Function description and photo help guide.

Images are pleasant and well exposed, and colours are well rendered. The camera also produces a decent level of sharpness, though at 100% viewing some softness is evident.

Verdict

The camera makes a good job of the images; all but the most picky users would be happy.
