About Samsung NX20

Samsung NX20, introducing the 20.3 megapixels Samsung Smart Camera NX20 with 1/8000 fast shutter and Built-in WiFi.

20.3MP APS-C Sensor
Customized for the NX System, the brand-new, professional-grade, 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor produces images that rival those of any premium DSLR. Each individual pixel has a large sensor area and receives more light, guaranteeing low noise levels, high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation. The higher sensitivity allows you to shoot during low-light situations without graininess or other noise. The new sensor also provides Full HD video output capabilities

A Touch of TouchWiz
The NX20's High Speed Capture capabilities let you catch fleeting moments and fast-moving objects without requiring a separate sensor module. The NX System features an ultra-high-speed Auto Focus that can rival that of almost any system camera. Its all-new, advanced algorithm delivers faster and more accurate auto focus. The NX20 can shoot at 8 frames per second for better continuous shooting, and shutter lag has been reduced to just 40ms.

1/8000 Fast Shutter
Shutter speed can make the difference between capturing an iconic image and missing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The NX20's 1/8000 shutter speed gives you the flexibility to shoot like the pros at varying speeds and light exposures. The NX20's shutter even automatically adjusts itself as it senses environmental factors such as temperature and camera direction. And the electronically controlled focal-plane shutter reduces exposure errors.

Discover the True Beauty of HD Video
Built with 1080 30p Full HD movie recording capabilities, the NX20 transforms shooting video with a still camera into an art form. Choose from a wide range of viewing angles and zoom with confidence. The mirrorless CMOS image sensor offers precise auto focus even while you shoot. For a truly cinematic experience, the NX System has been fitted with an 18-200mm lens exclusively for Full HD video.

Instant Sharing via Wi-Fi
The NX20's Wi-Fi connectivity lets you connect your digital camera to a wireless network. Save photos and videos directly to a computer or cloud service while you shoot, email them, print them wirelessly, or upload them straight to Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. You'll never have to worry about losing a great shot, running out of storage space, or remembering to bring the right cable along.

See More. Shoot More.
The Clear AMOLED Swivel Display lets you precisely frame images and shoot from just about any angle. Compared to the TFT-LCD found on most digital cameras, the NX20's AMOLED display has deeper blacks and more accurate, vivid colors even when viewed in direct sunlight. You'll know right away if your shot is the one you want. The display also maximizes battery life so you can shoot longer.

Wide Range ISO (12800, 7 Steps)
Wide Range ISO makes any lighting situation the perfect one. The ability to shoot as high as ISO 12,800 at normal settings means that even in low light, you'll get rich tonal gradations and true colors. You'll also capture clear, crisp images of fast-moving objects.

A Better Window on the World
A key feature of the NX20 is the built-in electronic view finder (EVF). Unlike many cameras in its class, the NX20 provides photographers with a true window into reality for both short and long distances. So now you can perfectly frame each shot without any guesswork.

NX 20 - great features and IQ but handicapped by slow software


I do like the NX20 size and all the features and image quality is very good with a good lense. But the I have also missed some picture due to bugs in the software as the camera sometimes suddenly freeze and has to be restarted. I am sure Samsung would have been able to sort this out before the launch.


Marvels of Modern Photography


Not owning the NX20 long enough to be any kind of expert, I nevertheless take great pleasure in this camera. Thus far it tends to exceed my expectations. The photographic results can be stunning. Niggles: lack of touch screen, which makes the vaunted WiFi ability clumsier than necessary; battery life perhaps shorter than expected; tepid JPEGs, which need punching up. In the latter case, I process RAW, which I advise, for it creates wonders. There is plenty to learn about the camera in order to use it confidently, but the manual (PDF, naturally) is actually quite helpful. I'm having a ball with this camera, and having bought it during a super sale, after much research and consideration of the competition, I feel I received the best value for my money.


Very cool concept


Great pics, 20Mp resolution, auto transfer to pc with WiFi! Easy and intuitive setup and operation. What's not to like?


Great features i love


i just love it's wifi where i can upload instantly to my social networking account. I was choosing between Sony NEX7 and this one and after comparing it's feature decided to go for the Samsung NX20... build quality was great as its features. The lens that came with it was ok but i wish you can buy just the body only . Overall it meets my camera needs.
