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.
