Samsung NX300 Reviews

A real Gem from Samsung

By PhotoJimbo
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2015-10-28

I have had an NX1000 for a couple years, and it really impressed me with its features for such a low price range. I looked into reviews of the newer Samsung mirrorless cameras, and the NX300 got the best reviews. Looking for a source brought me back to B&H as both the most reliable vendor and the best price. It didn't hurt that it was delivered the next day! While there are faster cameras with similar features, there is nothing near the value for the price, and I really feel that Samsung is trying harder... No one has it perfect yet, but I usually go for the underdog with the most attitude.

My wife and I love to hike and travel so we wanted a better camera to capture our memories. This has been a great upgrade! We have used it to capture nice quality low light shots at night along with some action shots of her brother high jumping at an indoor track meet (also low light). The remote viewfinder is also really cool! So far we are very happy with the camera.

Excellent Camera For Our Family

By Bill

We wanted a camera that was good at doing 3 things: 1. Taking low light shots. 2. Quickly auto-focusing. 3. Quick to come ready to shoot. This camera does all 3 very well. My wife and I share this camera and she wanted a point-and-shoot - which this camera does well when placed in auto mode. I wanted a camera that I could adjust - and this camera also does that. It also allows us to transfer pictures from the camera to the computer via the WiFi - which works very well. All in all a great camera that I can highly recommend.

question

Does the Lightroom download included with this purchase allow you to see what the camera sees ( think the correct terminology is liveview ) and can the camera be controled from a laptop? The write up included here only mentions tablet and phone.I have been comparing prices of software/camera/lens and laptop/tablet/ipad combinations. The least expensive combination I found (up till now) was a 550D/Rebel T2i, Breeze System Pro, and buying a small laptop.This Samsung with a lens and Lightroom included looks like a great deal.
Asked by: Christina B.
Lightroom is a post-production software platform and will not give you live view. The camera can be controlled from a smart phone or a tablet using an app, however it cannot be controlled from a laptop.
