- Thu, 19 Apr 2012
Samsung has updated and extended their range of Compact System Cameras (CSCs) with the releases of the NX20, NX210 and NX1000. All three models boast a 20.3MP APS-C sized sensor as well as a 100-12800 ISO range.
The NX20 follows the NX11 and NX10, and incorporates a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF). There's now the addition of a hinged swival rear screen that uses the latest Clear AMOLED technology that promises even better viewing.
The NX20 can now shoot up to 1/6000sec thanks to a new hybrid mechanical and electronic shutter, while it is also capable of shooting at up to 8fps.
There's also a dedicated movie record button and Wi-fi compatibility, which is also offered on the NX1000 and NX210. This allows images to be backed up onto a Cloud service or to a local computer without the need for cables, while it's also possible to have the feed transmitted onto a smartphone or tablet via a dedicated App.
The NX210 is a subtle upgrade to the NX200, with the most notable update WiFi compatibility and the 8fps frame rate. There's now also connections for a external microphone and the ability to shoot compressed Raw files as well.
Finally the NX1000 presents a new line in Samsung Compact System
Cameras, sitting at the beginner end of the price range.The design closely resembles the NX200/NX210, but now has a plastic finish and other minor differences. The rear screen is a standard LCD rather and an AMOLED display, though it still has that impressive 20.3MP APS-C sensor as its siblings.
The three models will be released soon and are priced at; NX20: ￡899, NX210: ￡749 and NX1000: ￡599. For more information head to Samsung's website.
