Samsung NX300 Camera Price, Specs and Release Date Announced
January 4th, 2013
The newly-announced Samsung NX300 is going to be their flagship compact digital camera for 2013, offering interchangeable lenses. The NX300 is quite compact, and comes with an 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor.
Having a bright and sharp AMOLED touch screen on a phone is pretty cool. Having one on a camera is just that much better, especially when the screen can tilt up or down, allowing you to properly use it as a viewfinder from your chest or any angle.
It can shoot photos in with a broad ISO range of 100-25600. With the available f1.8 45mm 2D/3D lens, it should also be good for low-light photography. In addition to still images, it can capture 1080p video at 60fps, or at 30fps in 3D.
The 3.31-inch WVGA AMOLED touch screen serves as a viewfinder and offers lots of controls. There are plenty of physical buttons as well, which is good in my opinion. The camera can also shoot in 3D mode and has Wi-Fi, so it can automatically upload photos. The NX300 can be charged via a microUSB port, so you won’t need any special charging cable for it.
The camera will retail for $749.99(USD) when it’s released this March. It ships with a 20-50mm f3.5-f5.6 lens. The f1.8 45mm lens costs $599.99 extra, though.
