Samsung NEW NX30 Digital Camera Features & Price 3 Mar 2014

Samsung has announced the launch of the NX30, a professionally-inspired Compact System Camera featuring high quality images with faster performance and advanced features.

The camera also features ability for users to instantaneously share their photographic world with friends and family through advanced Smart Camera technology, as well as NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity features.

The NX30 is the perfect choice for aspiring photographers who are passionate about photography. Samsung also expanded its line of NX lenses with the introduction of its first “S” Series premium lens.

“As the next-generation Compact System Camera in Samsung’s award winning NX series, the NX30 inspires photographers to shoot with confidence. Users can seamlessly capture the special moments and share them immediately. The camera delivers exceptionally beautiful photographs while creating an unmatched photo-sharing experience,” said Irene Ng, Vice President, Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd.

“With the launch of the NX30, we aim to strengthen our leading position in the Compact System Camera segment. We are confident that the NX30 will deliver the best user experience and thus be loved by many consumers.”

Outstanding Quality and Speed

High quality images with rich colours are assured with the professional grade 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor. Delivering shots which are bursting with sharp details and intense colours, the large sensor is ideal for creating rich images with dramatic foreground and background blur, providing professional quality imaging that ignites the visual senses.

Featuring the Samsung NX AF System II that boasts fast and accurate auto focusing, this new model ensures all moments, including fast-moving scenes and subjects, that make up the beauty of everyday life will never be missed.

Capturing short-lived, fast-paced moments in perfect clarity is achievable with the NX30’s exceptionally fast 1/8000 sec Shutter Speed and the 9 frame per seconds (FPS) Continuous Shooting function. These features freeze the action being captured, and promise super sharp pictures regardless of how fast the subject is moving so that each split second can be appreciated.

Featuring a unique Tiltable Electronic Viewfinder (XGA, 2,359K-dot resolution), the NX30 makes it easy for the consumers to discover new perspectives. Whether crowds are obstructing the shot or a more creative angle is desired, the 80 degree tilt means that different viewpoints are simple to achieve. With the ability to move from side to side, up to 180 degrees, as well as upward and downward up to 270 degrees, the NX30’s 76.7mm (3.0-inch) Super AMOLED Swivel and Touch Display offers flexible angles which are especially useful for self-shooting, whether for stills or video capture.

Smart Connectivity, Tag & Go

The NX30’s NFC and Wi-Fi capabilities take Samsung Smart camera’s reputation of fast connectivity to the next level through a host of intuitive features which allow users to share images rapidly and seamlessly. With ‘Tag & Go’, users can instantly pair the NX30 with NFC enabled smartphones and tablets with just one tap, allowing seamless sharing of content between two devices.

Photo Beam allows users to transfer an image or video to a smartphone or tablet by simply touching the two devices together with no other configuration needed. MobileLink lets users select multiple images to send to four distinct smart devices at one time – allowing friends to share photos among themselves without the need to take repetitive shots individually.

AutoShare automatically sends every photo taken instantly to users’ smartphone or tablet and the Remote Viewfinder Pro function enables several controls of the NX30 from a smartphone, allowing users to snap shots remotely yet still have full visibility of the scene, opening up new photographic possibilities.

Dropbox, the popular web storage service is pre-loaded on the NX30, making it the first camera-specific device to offer direct-to-Dropbox uploading. Additionally, the NX30 users can upload photos taken directly to Flickr – another first in a camera-specific device. Using the advanced connectivity features of the NX30, images can be uploaded automatically, omitting the concern photographers have about memory space in their cameras, and whether their precious photos are backed up.

Experience Life from all Angles

The NX30 includes the sophisticated next-generation DRIMeIV Image Processor and a powerful DSP imaging engine that brings an unmatched shooting experience and Full HD 1080/60p movie capabilities. The high light sensitivity of the NX30, with a range from ISO100-25600, produces stunning images even in low light conditions and with OIS Duo technology, steady shots for better movie recording are guaranteed, even while on the move.

The innovative technology provided by the DRIMeIV Image Processor also enables the 3D capture of scenes and subjects via the Samsung 45mm F1.8 2D/3D lens, letting memories live on through life-like 3D images and videos displayed on compatible 3D devices. The introduction of OLED Colour to the NX30 records the ultimate contrast and real colours, to make it possible for you capture landscapes that are rich and portraits with natural tones.

Advanced video features make the NX30 an ideal solution for movie makers searching for a compact yet high performing camera. In addition to Full HD 1080/60p movie capabilities and Video Stereo Recording, the NX30 supports a standard 3.5mm microphone input for high quality audio capture while shooting movies.

The Audio Level Meter appears on the display so users can continuously monitor the input level status while recording. Moreover, the NX30 is also perfect for advanced video enthusiasts because of its HDMI live streaming with Full HD 30p output that makes it easy to connect with a large screen, recorder, and other HDMI devices.

Intuitive design is a central feature of the NX30. Two dedicated Custom Modes can be accessed on the mode dial, so that preferred camera settings can be retrieved quickly, while ten additional custom sets can be stored on the camera. The separate drive dial also provides instant access to a selection of popular modes, including continuous shooting, bracketing and self-timer. It is therefore fast and simple to select the ideal settings for a shot, meaning that there is no delay in capturing the perfect image.

Through Samsung’s innovative i-Function system, advanced camera settings such as shutter speed and aperture can be accessed with the touch of one button. For more experienced photographers, i-Function Plus lets users to reprogram existing buttons with their preferred and frequently used settings.

The new powerful TTL external flash with a Guide Number of 58 makes it simple to capture perfect shots, allowing light to travel further and wider. The high speed flash sync mode allows for flash with shutter speeds faster than 1/200th of a second, ideal for brightly lit scenes with selective depth of field. Additionally this new flash supports wireless strobe sync, bringing an added dimension to images with light that looks natural.

Pricing and Availability

The Samsung NX30 will be available in Singapore from February 27, at an RRP of $1,369 inclusive of GST, at all major consumer electronics stores.
