Samsung NX30 – First Look
Earlier today Samsung announced a new mirorrless camera from its NX series. The new camera is meant to be a top end model in the Samsung lineup and replace the NX20 announced a year ago.
There are some interesting improvments in this new model including a 3-inch, 1.04 million dot AMOLED display which is 70% brighter than the one on the NX20 as well as high res EVF which can be pulled away from the camera and tilted upward 80 degrees.
Here are a few more specs from the camera:
- Sensor: a 20.3MP APS-C sensor.
- Hybrid AF with 105 phase detection points.
- Tilting EVF with 2.36 million dot XGA resolution.
- 3 inch articulated AMOLED screen – with just over 1 million dots.
- 1/6000 shutter speed (electronic shutter mode can go to 1/8000).
- Shooting speed: up to 9 fps.
- sensitivity: 25,600 top ISO.
- Built in pop-up flash.
- Wireless flash sync with a new SAF58 also introduced today.
- Video: up to 1080p 60p with full manual mode and audio control.
- Bundled with Adobe Lightroom 5.
- Pricing and availability has not been disclosed at this time.
Besides the camera Samsung also introduced two new lenses – both 16-55mm – one is tiny with a f/3.5-f/5.6 and the other is much bigger with a very unique f/2-f2.8 aperture.
