Release Date: 25 Mar 2013

Manufacturer: Samsung

Included: pouch, rechargeable battery

The Samsung NX300 is a mirror-less digital camera which promises to shake up the industry. It has 20-50mm F3.5-5.6 ED II lens and comes in black. Its specifications more than justify the generally hefty price tag of $748. If you are ordering from the USA then the product comes with free shipping. The camera comes with a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor, a throwback to some of the greatest days of the genera. It has 3D still specifications and is capable of advanced video capture. Of course you get full HD facilities based on the 60fps setting. The 3.31″ AMOLED Tilt Touch Screen Display is impressive enough to compete with the very best.

Features of the Samsung NX300

The innovations keep coming on the Samsung NX300 with a hybrid autofocus system to boot. It has a Touch Control LED which is the perfect complement to the general Touch AF settings. Those of you with high technical requirements will love the Dual Channel Wi-Fi which is delivered using the SMART CAMERA App. In terms of design, they have stuck to the retro system and I see no problem with it. There is no ambiguity about the DRIMe IV Image Processor…it is at the top of the range. You also get 20-50mm Lens as well as SEF-8A Flash.

You will have to purchase the memory card separately, a rather mean requirement given the considerable expense of the original item. However the upside is that you can buy the memory card that is appropriate depending on the type of usage you have in mind. The low-noise image creation system is a sleek addition to an evidently practical device. Its colors are eerily accurate. The enormous ISO range of 100-25600 will make life easy for the professional photographer. The 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens allow for effective photo and video capture.

If we turn to the autofocus system, you can see that it is capable of both phase-detection AF and its contrast-detect counterpart. When you use the full Samsung NX300 specification you can shoot up to 9 frames each second with no problems at all. The shutter speed of 1/6000 per second is up there with the very best in the industry. The OLED screen measures 3.3” and can be tilted at will. You get clear images with a resolution reading of up to 800 pixels by 480 pixels. That means that you can do live view composition projects and enjoy the wonders of playback. The LED feature has a touch screen menu control that includes autofocus.

The dual channel makes for swift Wi-Fi accessibility. You can easily share images using the SMART CAMERA app. The Samsung NX300 automatically detects new devices and the transfer process is quite easy. You can use the app to send your photos directly to social media networks like Facebook.

The Samsung NX300 is the ultimate companion for taking images. Many of its features will be beyond the capabilities of ordinary users but the professionals will find the specification quite compelling. From that perspective its price is more than tolerable.
