This unique camera runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system and has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 3G/4G LTE mobile connectivity—providing photographers with a wide range of image sharing options.

The Android operating system provides a familiar interface for navigating system menus and camera functions, as well as putting a host of downloadable apps at your fingertips.

Image Quality and Performance

20.3MP APS-C CMOS Image Sensor

A large 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor and DRIMe IV image processor work together to produce high resolution imagery and full HD 1080p video at 30 fps with impressive low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 25600. The size of the sensor also helps to produce images with reduced noise and clarity as well as promoting greater control over depth of field and selective focus placement. The DRIMe IV image processor also affords a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including a continuous shooting rate up to 8.6 fps and a top shutter speed of 1/6000th of a second.

Hybrid Autofocus System

The Advanced Hybrid Autofocus system utilizes both phase- and contrast-detection focusing methods to acquire focus quickly and precisely. The phase-detection method is ideal for gaining focus in an expedited manner while contrast-detection is employed to fine-tune the focus for critical applications. When combined, focusing is sharp and leads to making photos in a natural and intuitive manner.

Samsung NX Lens Mount

A broad array NX-mount of lenses are available for use, ranging from wide-angle primes to long-reaching zooms. The ability to change and utilize different lenses depending on the situation at hand aids in producing captivating and more dynamic imagery. Additionally, the Galaxy NX is compatible with the unique 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens that enables one-lens creation of true 3D photos and movies.

Wireless Efficiency

Wi-Fi and 3G/4G LTE Connectivity

In addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, the Galaxy NX also integrates 3G/4G LTE support to enable sharing of imagery from nearly anywhere at any time. This ability allows uploading of files to social networking sites, emailing photos to friends, or backing up images on cloud-based storage sites. Additionally, Android apps can be downloaded directly to the camera to enables a wide range of in-camera editing and presentation solutions.

Photo Suggest

The Photo Suggest function can instantly connect you to wide-ranging libraries of images taken by other photographers in your current location. This allows for direct, real time reference of other images and helps to provide suggestions as to how to photograph a specific scene.

Story Album

The Story Album function helps to create, display, and print photo albums of groups of imagery from within the camera. This tool will automatically organize photos into timelines and will then reframe and resize images in order to produce digital photo books for sharing and viewing online.

Intuitive and Familiar Operation

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

The Galaxy NX utilizes the familiar and powerful Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system to create an efficient and easy-to-navigate user-interface for controlling camera functions and for seamless sharing of imagery. Access to a wide network of Android apps is available for personalized fine-tuning of files and a multitude of options for output and sending.

Camera Studio

The Camera Studio widget helps to customize camera settings for creating, editing, and presenting photos in a unique and simple manner. You can save and easily access your favorite shooting modes and employ helpful tools such as the location-based apps like Photo Suggest, TourWrist, and TripAdvisor; presentation-based Gallery and Story Album tools; and photo and video editing apps such as Video Maker and Paper Artist. Additionally, Dropbox can be used as a functional means for storing and sharing imagery with a wide audience.

Smart Mode

The Smart Mode button provides access to a host of automatic, intelligent camera settings that can be employed to help optimize your imagery in any setting:
  • Drama Shot merges continuous shots of moving objects into a single composed frame.
  • Action Freeze works to ensure still and clear rendering of fast-moving subjects.
