Samsung to release mirror-less cameras in June

By on

Samsung?s lineup of NX cameras is expanding with the addition of the NX3000.

The NX3000 is a 20 megapixel mirror-less camera that features an APS-C image sensor and comes with a compact 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 power zoom lens. There are some noticeable changes compared to the previous generation, the NX2000, in that, it features physical shooting controls compared to the regular touch screen display. There is a feature for the display to flip, so that it faces forward, so that you can see and adjust accordingly for getting the right shots. It?s quite ideal for selfies, too.

There is Wi-Fi built in the device, so transferring images from the camera on to the phone or somewhere else should be a breeze. If you have a Wi-Fi network within the camera?s vicinity, posting directly to social media outlets of your choice should be even easier, as various social media and cloud storage software like Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, Picasa, Dropbox, and SkyDrive are all supported and built into the camera. It can even work for some other things, as it has extra features like Smart Camera 3.0, that allows the device to be used as a baby monitor for the house, as well as a remote control via any iOS or Android supported device.

The camera?s rear display is at 3 inches and has a 460k-dot resolution, and can shoot as fast as 5fps. The device doesn?t have a built in flash, but Samsung was kind enough to make up for this by bundling the device with a compact GN 8? flash that slides into the accessory slot, and won?t require an extra battery to operate.

The pictures and videos that are recorded by the camera are placed into the microSD card and the battery is at 2,330 mAH. Videos can even be recorded at 1080p. Raw images are available and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 is the go to software for raw conversion.

The NX3000 will be sold as a kit together with the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 power zoom lens. Colors will range from black, white, or brown and the price starts at a nice $529. Shipment is slated for June 1.
