Samsung unveils NX300 mirrorless camera


Meet Samsung’s newest flagship device for its NX series of mirrorless cameras – the NX300. The NX300 uses a 20.3 Megapixel APS-CMOS sensor ISO100-25600 and a brand new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system to deliver clear, sharp images. The NX300 uses Samsung’s newest  DRIMe IV imaging engine that the company says enables better color reproduction and greater noise reduction, as well as support for full 1080p HD video capture in both 2D and 3D (when combined with Samsung’s new 45mm 2D/3D lens). The NX300 has a  3.31-inch AMOLED screen on the back.

The NX300 also uses Samsung’s WiFi sharing technology that they’ve developed for their other cameras as well, which allows you to share your photos directly from the camera to the web or to the smartphone of your choice. Like their other WiFi enabled models, you’ll also be able to use your smartphone to trigger the camera and to use it as a remote viewfinder thanks to the WiFi capabilities of the NX300, as well as the iOS and Android app the Korean firm developed just for it.

Like we mentioned before, Samsung is also offering an optional 45mm 2D/3D lens that allows you to shoot images in, you guessed it, 3D. Capable of capturing both still pictures and full 1080p HD video, the Samsung NX300 and 45mm 2D/3D lens kit have become the only compact system camera supporting both 3D still and 3D movies. Naturally, the NX300 is also compatible with Samsung’s entire range of NX lenses and professional standard accessories. No word on price or availability as of yet.
