Samsung today announced the launch of the NX300, the new flagship model in its successful NX series. The NX300 once again raises the bar for compact system cameras, delivering an outstanding combination of features, functionality and style. Samsung also announced the new NX 45mm F1.8 2D/3D lens, the first one-lens 3D system capable of capturing both still images and full HD movies in perfect 3D quality.
Central to the NX300’s imaging performance is its brand new 20.3 Megapixel APS-CMOS sensor, capable of capturing high quality detailed images. Photos boast “sharp, life-like colors and are crisp and clear in all light conditions.” The wide ISO range (ISO100-25600) further improves performance, letting users capture balanced images in even the darkest conditions. A brand new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system also delivers fast, accurate phase and contrast detection.
The Samsung 45mm 2D/3D lens (sold separately) is the world’s first one-lens 3D system for a consumer camera. Capable of capturing both still pictures and full 1080p HD video, the Samsung NX300 and 45mm 2D/3D lens kit have become the only compact system camera supporting both 3D still and 3D movie. The NX300 is also compatible with Samsung’s entire range of NX lenses and professional standard accessories.
The NX300 will available from March for $750 USD with a 20-50 mm kit lens. The Samsung 45 mm f1.8 2D/3D lens will also be available in March priced at $500 USD.
