Samsung today announced the launch of the GALAXY NX, the first 3G/4G LTE Connected Compact System Camera (CSC) with interchangeable lenses.
Versatile and easy to use, the GALAXY NX combines cutting-edge optical performance with connectivity capabilities and a galaxy of applications based on the Android eco-system, all in one stylish package.
The result is a new category of device which allows users to turn their experiences into stories that can be instantly shared with anyone, anywhere in amazing colour and outstanding detail.
“The GALAXY NX reflects the unique needs of consumers who need to take professional photos and share them immediately in any situation. It is also an ideal choice for those who want to express themselves and the exciting moments that make up their lives quickly and easily while on the go,” said Irene Ng, Vice President, Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd.
Share everything, from anywhere
With 3G/4G LTE technology, the GALAXY NX allows photographers to constantly stay connected. Promising speedy sharing whether on the move or at home, the GALAXY NX’s seamless connectivity transcends the current offerings to professional photographers, providing a device which puts the sharing of professional level images at its heart.
The GALAXY NX embraces the era of visual communication to provide an outlet for passionate photographers to express their exciting experiences immediately, in spectacular quality.
The GALAXY NX is well-equipped to help users capture picture perfect moments. Photo Suggest provides location-based recommendations of popular photography spots sourced from a huge library of images taken by fellow photographers across the world.
Story Album lets users enjoy timeless memories by displaying special moments on one timeline, reframing and resizing them to create digital photo books which can be viewed and shared on other devices.
Stunning picture quality
Its 20.3MP APS-C Sensor produces images which are bright and detailed even in low light conditions, while the DRIMe IV Image Signal Processer delivers the speed and accuracy which meets the demand of photographers today.
Life moves fast and the GALAXY NX ensures that users will not miss a moment. Its Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) System facilitates accurate phase and contrast detection for crisp, vibrant shots, while the 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps shooting let you capture the action as it is happening.
The flexibility offered by the GALAXY NX’s selection of Interchangeable Lenses places creative control firmly in the hands of the photographer, opening up a world of imaging possibilities.
From compact pancake lenses and an ultra-wide fisheye to exquisite longer prime and zoom lenses, the extensive range of lenses help users create images that are truly special and to tell the story in a more personal way. True 3D Creator also brings an added element of realism to images and videos captured by the GALAXY NX, allowing users to shoot in 3D with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens.
Simple and easy to use
With Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the functionality of a smartphone is utilized to improve the photographic experience. Users can choose from an entire universe of Android apps to help personalise their GALAXY NX and do more than just shoot amazing photographs and videos, from editing images to adding special effects to staying in touch with friends and family.
The GALAXY NX is packed with features which help photographers take images that embody their passions and express their unique outlook on the scenes they are shooting. More than 30 Smart Mode options let users choose the optimum settings for the environment they are capturing, as well as create fresh, artistic images.
‘Multi Exposure’ merges two different shots together to produce one distinctive image, while ‘Animated Photo’ connects continuous shots of up to five seconds, creating a moving GIF file. For added authenticity, ‘Sound & Shot’ stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken, so moments are captured exactly as they happen.
For added personalisation, the Camera Studio allows users to easily customize settings with their most frequently used applications or camera modes, making sure their photos are captured exactly as desired every time.
Pricing and availability
The Samsung GALAXY NX is available from 17 August at a RRP of $1,958. The GALAXY NX also comes bundled with Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4 valued at $178.
