If your spouse is anything like my wife, the top of the Christmas list may well be a tiny digital camera. Personally, I prefer a larger camera like my PowerShot S2 IS, but the wife wants tiny camera that can fit in her pocket.

While I was reviewing, the Circuit City 24/24 guarantee I bought one for her from Samsung called the NV10. I am quite familiar with the Samsung name in computer electronics and they make some fantastic LCD displays and hard drives, this was my first experience with a Samsung digital camera.
I am quite impressed to say the least. As tiny as the little cam is, it measures in at a mere 2.4” x 2.8” x .07” and weighs 5.2 ounces, it has a whopping 10-megapixel resolution. Samsung uses SD cards for storage and even at the full 10 MP, you can get about 300 pics on a 1GB SD card according to the cams LCD display.Typically I shy away from cams that don’t have an optical viewfinder, but the humongous LCD (for a tiny camera) measuring in at 2.5” is very easy to line up shots with. You also get ASR settings for picture taking as well. Zoom is 3x optical and 5x digital, which is standard on cams this small, and pictures are of fantastic quality. The best feature of this camera is the navigation menu which is hands down the easiest to operate I have ever used. You can get anywhere in the cameras menu in a few clicks.

Overall, I wish I had this smaller cam to use rather than my much larger Canon S2 IS when I am on the go. Picture quality is as good if not better than the Canon and the NV10 is much smaller and much easier to carry. You can also check the camera out over at Circuit City.
