The black NX300M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Lens from Samsung 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 a compact 18-55mm 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 60 fps video capture and wide ISO range of 100-25600. In addition, thanks to the DRIMe IV, the NX300M is capable of 3D photo and video capture when used with the optional 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens. The NX300M differs from the NX300 with its inclusion of the Tizen Operating System and due to its 180º flip-up OLED screen which enables easier hand held self-portraits.
The NX300M 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 8.6 fps and a shutter speed as quickly as 1/6000 of a second. A large, 180º Flip Touch 3.31" OLED monitor provides accurate and well-defined 800 x 480 resolution images for live view composition and playback and it's capable of touch menu control and touch auto focus control. The NX300M provides RAW format capability and full manual control but also offers Filter Effects such as watercolor, miniature effect and vignetting.
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 NX300M 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 and remote control.
A retro viewfinder form factor gives this camera a distinctive look and its dimpled, ergonomically designed grip offers comfort and easy access to its controls. The NX300M is compatible with the complete line of NX mount lenses. This kit includes the black 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 OIS lens which is a compact zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to compensate for the blurring effects of camera shake and provide sharp images even in low light settings. The lens has a 35mm focal length equivalency of 28-85mm which is an ideal range for everyday shooting with wide-angle to short telephoto capability. As an intuitive i-Function lens, it allows you to control the camera's manual settings via a ring on the lens and offers image preview in real time. Also included with the NX300M 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. Adobe Lightroom 5 software is also bundled with the NX300M and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.
