The black NX300 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 20-50mm F/3.5-5.6 ED II Lens from Samsung is the flagship NX compact system mirrorless camera. It offers a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor and the DRIMe IV image processing engine for sharp, low-noise images with accurate colors and is combined with the compact 20-50mm zoom lens and a hot shoe mount flash unit. The DRIMe IV image processing engine enables fast performance and provides support for the camera's Full HD 1080p 60fps video capture and wide ISO range of 100-25600. In addition, thanks to the DRIMe IV, the NX300 is capable of 3D photo and video capture when used with the new 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens.

The NX300 features a fast Hybrid Auto-focus system that combines phase-detection AF with contrast-detect AF. It's capable of continuous burst shooting of up to 9 frames per second and a shutter speed as quick as 1/6000 of a second. A large, tiltable 3.3" OLED screen provides accurate and well-defined 800 x 480 resolution images for live view composition and playback and the LED is capable of touch screen menu control and touch auto focus control.

With fast dual-channel Wi-Fi, instant image sharing is possible via the Samsung SMART CAMERA App. Simply download the app to your smartphone or tablet and the NX300 will automatically detect your device and instantly transfer images to your phone or tablet for sharing. The SMART CAMERA App also allows for functions like Direct Link which send photos directly from your camera to social sites like Facebook, and Remote Viewfinder which allows you to use your smartphone as the camera's viewfinder.

A retro viewfinder form factor makes this a handsome camera and its dimpled, ergonomically designed grip offers comfort and easy access to its controls. The NX300 is compatible with the complete line of NX mount lenses. This kit includes the 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 ED II Lens which is a compact zoom lens that retracts for portability when the camera is powered down. The lens has a 35mm focal length equivalency of 30.8-77mm which is an ideal range for everyday shooting with wide-angle to short telephoto capability. Aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements reduce aberrations and provide sharp imaging for photo and video capture. Also included with the NX300 is the SEF-8A flash unit which mounts to the camera's hot shoe. This compact flash, with a Guide Number of 8, flips up to turn on and flips back down to turn off.

      I wanted a smaller form factor camera that I can still do photo shoots and video with rather than brining my 5D mark II out to some places. The fact that its 20.3MP has a 3.31" AMOLED screen that tilts and is easy to see in daylight I love this camera. The quality is amazing with this camera.... I am doing a photo shoot with it and using my pocketwizards and alien bees to really see what this camera is capable of doing.

      I think the only thing i wish it had was a view finder... other than that the camera is perfect.

      I must say this is my fist step in the opposite direction in terms of purchasing cameras. I have always worked with and loved the Sony Alpha series cameras but thought I should give the Samsung NX300 a try. I must say I am impressed with the build quality of the body and lenses for this system and liking the image quality so far. Like in most reviews regarding this camera there is no view finder and only a live view display on the back. The live view is a very nice screen with excellent touch capabilities but if suffers terribly in the sunlight when trying to compose and adjust your shots in the bright light. If Samsung wants to be serious with this camera and this segment they NEED A VIEW FINDER. Other than that I LOVE this CAMERA.

            I have been looking at cameras for a couple of months and finally decided on one of the micro four thirds. But which one? I looked at a lot of websites but B&H had all the information anyone could ask for. And the price was great. I have had the Samsung NX300 for about a week now and have taken over 300 picture at a 3 year old birthday party and Easter. The picture are bright and clear no mater the lighting. One heck of a little camera. And I can swap the lens to make it even more versatile.

              I use this camera with a 16mm lens which is great for scenery. I have been finding the NX300 a pleasure to use. The ifunction button is a real time saver as far as where your fingers have to go to get the setting just right when using manual. The thing that was most surprising was how useful all the wifi features were. This camera sends email with up to 6 photos which is great if you just want to send a couple of shots to your friends. Overall a great camera. I would like to have a built in flash so its not perfect.

                  My son wanted a good camera for Christmas. I bought this on a Black Friday special. He's just getting started in photography. He likes the look of the camera, and it's user-friendly enough to make it easy for my son to get good pictures out of the box.

                  The only negative so far is that you have to connect the camera directly to the charger to recharge the battery, which can be inconvenient because you don't have the option of using an alternative battery while it's charging.

                    I am a novice/intermediate with a camera. I know enough to take some great pics in other than auto mode. The quality and sharpness of the pics are almost unreal! Phenominal infact!!! I have never been happier with this purchase. Even a person who has never used a camera before can get amazing shots in auto mode. I highly recommend this camera to anyone reading this review. I compared this to the new comparable sony and nikon cameras. Soo much easier to use and in my opinion superior picture clarity and quality - even when zoomed in to the max - things you can't hardly even notice in the original shot can be magnified to superb detail. Took a pic of my house with the new snowfall we just received. Shots I took were about 150 feet away plus to get entire house in the screen. My garbage can was behind my garage. when I zoomed in all the way, you can see the can though the window of my open garage door good enough to read the serial numbers stamped on the can!!!! Couldn't believe it was even possible from a camera as easy to work as a point and shooot!!!!

                      My wife and I wanted a nicer camer to take pictures of our new addition to the family, our daughter. We wanted something more than a point and shoot but something easy to use. After a lot of research we decided on the Samsung NX300. We are very beginner photographers but believe this camera will allow us to learn as we go. It came ready to use right out of the box. Very easy. Great looking. We were taking beautiful pictures from the get go. We are very happy with our decision and can't wait to keep taking more and more pictures of our new addition.

                      This is an amazing little camera, fully customizable. When I dont feel like taking my heavy and big dSLR with me, my nx-300 is the perfect fit, I just hope Samsung continues providing support and new lenses for the series.

                        Samsung has done a great job on the design of this camera, the controls are well arranged and intuitive, the touch screen is responsive and uncluttered. It has amazingly accurate color and the clean, crisp images(even in low light) are very impressive. I love the small size and the way it fits so comfortably in my small hands. The lenses are lightweight but the glass is of very good quality. I have used the Ifunction button on the lens for quickly changing important settings (shutter speed, fstop,iso etc) more than I thought I would, it is in a great location. The auto focus is fast and accurate and it has some nice manual features like direct manual focus and focus peaking. I am not interested in the fancy filters or wifi back up, though they are fun and well implemented, but as a serious interchangeable lens camera (for a limited budget) it is very satisfying. I did not think I would use the wifi ability to email an image, but am finding it very handy. Overall, it is a lot of bang for the buck, with image quality quite competetive with many of it's higher priced rivals.

                        Takes some time to adjust to no viewfinder but 20Mp images lovely, auto focus suffers in lowlight but understand that is a normal condition for cameras.
                        Small and easy to handle, WIFI excellent. Got extra lens 50-200 from BH for same price as single elsewhere. Enjoying this camera its not a 5D MIII but doesn't cost a sixth as much.

                        Wanted a camera that my wife could use, and I could use to expand my photographic abilities. Much simpler to use than my Nikon and much better pictures (Nikon is only 6 MP). I think I get better composition without a viewfinder and so wanted a large, easy to adjust screen. The inclusion of Lightroom is a great bonus.

                                I am a blogger who travels for work, I was heading to Africa & I needed a lightweight high quality camera that could take video as well but was compact enough to be non-invasive as a documentarian and highly portable. I also wanted a camera that I could add a zoom lens. B& H had the best price by far. Often I was shooting photos while driving in a car snapping candid sidewalk shots and this camera was quick enough to get great ones on the move! I did not need the flash at all so was unable to see how that works so far.

                                  I am definitely not a professional photographer or anything, but my husband and I took a vacation to Greece and I really wanted something that would take great photos and was a little more compact. This camera turned out to be everything that we wanted and more! It takes amazing photos and has so many options, I'm still learning new things that it can do. The only thing that I wasn't too happy about was the 20-50mm lens that it comes with. It doesn't focus really well all the time and has a harder time with face recognition, which is a problem in portrait shots. If you get this camera I would highly recommend also getting the 50-200mm lens. That lens works like a dream and honestly I find myself using that more than anything.

                                      The tilt LCD is a good upgrade from the NX 200
                                      Have to recharge battery with the battery in the camera.
                                      Need to have a separate charger so a spare battery can be charging while using the camera.

                                      Note the lens that comes with the camera does NOT have image stabilization.

                                        My new favorite toy. I think this camera is good for beginners and a fun change for seasoned photographers, it has fun little features like beauty mode for self portraits and editing feature. Takes wonderful pictures crisp and clear and the auto isn't too bad when taking fast shots of my toddler. I just love it all around from the style and all the new things I learn each day.

                                        Comments about NX300 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 20-50mm F/3.5-5.6 ED II Lens (Black):

                                        I have been looking to pick up photography as a hobby and this is the perfect camera. Small and versatile, this camera is great to bring around with you to everything from a birthday party to a long hike in the mountains. Touch screen, beautiful display, oscillating screen and vintage design, this camera is sure to draw attention for both its power, functionality and power. Rechargeable battery is convenient but wish it lasted longer.

                                        • Ease of Operation:
