Samsung just unveiled the NX3000 smart camera, a mirror-less camera with a affordable price tag and an interchangeable lens camera with advanced connectivity features. It goes back to relying more on hardware controls than on touchscreen controls, similar to the NX1000. This has a two toned Metal and Textured Body.
This retro style camera has a 20.3MP APS-C sensor that can record 1080p videos at 30p, the same basic specs as its two predecessors, the NX2000 and NX1000. The Camera is powered by a 2330mAh battery just like on Samsung Smartphones.
The screen of this camera has gone down in size to 3″ (down from 3.7″ on the NX2000) and in resolution – the new camera has an HVGA screen (compared to VGA on the NX1000, WVGA on the NX2000). It is a flip-up display though, plus Wink Shot for those all-important selfies.
Size has remained about the same and there’s a new kit lens; Samsung 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS features a 9 element lens. The camera can snap photos at 1/4,000s shutter speed and supports 5fps continuous shooting. This also has an ISO range of 100-25,600.
The advanced connectivity that makes the Samsung NX3000 a smart camera includes Home Monitor+, similar to the baby monitor feature of the Galaxy S5. There’s also AutoShare and AutoBackup, Remote Viewfinder Pro, Mobile Link and PhotoBeam. This is done with the SmartCamera 3.0 interface over Wi-Fi. NFC is also available. Like the previous models, this camera also rely on microSD cards for storage.
The Samsung NX3000 will be available in mid-June and The camera will come in black, brown, and white. A bonus included with the camera is a copy of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5. The NX3000 will sell for $529 with the 16-50mm OIS Power Zoom and SEF-8 Flash, but a second version with a non-powered 20-50mm and SEF-8 Flash will be available for $479.
