About Samsung NX300M

The Samsung NX300M Mirrorless Digital Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Lens offers a 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor and the DRIMe IV image processing engine for sharp, low-noise images with accurate colors and is combined with a compact 18-55mm zoom lens and a hot shoe mount flash unit. The DRIMe IV image processing engine enables fast performance and provides support for the camera's Full HD 1080p 60 fps video capture and wide ISO range of 100-25600. In addition, thanks to the DRIMe IV, the NX300M is capable of 3D photo and video capture when used with the optional 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens. The NX300M differs from the NX300 with its inclusion of the Tizen Operating System and due to its 180deg. flip-up OLED screen which enables easier hand held self-portraits.

The NX300M features a fast Hybrid Auto-focus system that combines phase-detection AF with contrast-detect AF. It's capable of continuous burst shooting of up to 8.6 fps and a shutter speed as quickly as 1/6000 of a second. A large, 180deg. Flip Touch 3.31" OLED monitor provides accurate and well-defined 800 x 480 resolution images for live view composition and playback and it's capable of touch menu control and touch auto focus control. The NX300M provides RAW format capability and full manual control but also offers Filter Effects such as watercolor, miniature effect and vignetting.

With fast dual-channel Wi-Fi instant image sharing is possible via the Samsung SMART CAMERA App. Simply download the app to your smartphone or tablet and the NX300M will automatically detect your device and instantly transfer images to your phone or tablet for sharing. The SMART CAMERA App also allows for functions like Direct Link which send photos directly from your camera to social sites like Facebook and Remote Viewfinder which allows you to use your smartphone as the camera's viewfinder and remote control.

A retro viewfinder form factor gives this camera a distinctive look and its dimpled, ergonomically designed grip offers comfort and easy access to its controls. The NX300M is compatible with the complete line of NX mount lenses. This kit includes the black 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 OIS lens which is a compact zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to compensate for the blurring effects of camera shake and provide sharp images even in low light settings. The lens has a 35mm focal length equivalency of 28-85mm which is an ideal range for everyday shooting with wide-angle to short telephoto capability. As an intuitive i-Function lens, it allows you to control the camera's manual settings via a ring on the lens and offers image preview in real time. Also included with the NX300M is the SEF-8A flash unit which mounts to the camera's hot shoe. This compact flash, with a Guide Number of 8, flips up to turn on and flips back down to turn off. Adobe Lightroom 5 software is also bundled with the NX300M and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

Advanced 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor
The 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor with Phase detection AF-delivers high-quality images and lifelike colors with the highest resolution in its class. It's also ideal for out-focusing photography, thanks to a sensor that's the largest used in a mirrorless camera. The sensor, which measures 23.5mm x 15.7mm, collects the most light so you can create beautiful images without noise, even in low-lit situations.

3.31" wide 180deg. flip & touch AMOLED
Featuring a 3.31" tilt display that flips up a complete 180 degrees, it lets you capture life from the right angle every time. Perfect for snapping self-portraits and group shots. There's also a hybrid user interface that combines the AMOLED touchscreen with a 5-way button so you can navigate the menu, adjust settings and share images-quickly and intuitively.

Advanced Hybrid AF System
The hybrid AF (autofocus) system combines Phase detection AF and contrast AF for faster and more accurate autofocusing. Phase detection AF nearly instantaneously determines the distance of your subject, while contrast AF fine-tunes the focus for maximum contrast. Enabled by an incredibly short shutter lag, the hybrid AF System allows you to shoot accurate, sharply detailed images faster.

Smart Camera 2.0 (Dual Band Wi-Fi)
A dedicated Direct Link hot key lets you quickly and wirelessly send images to a mobile phone, tablet, PC or Smart HDTV-directly from your camera. It's perfect for sharing moments with friends, family and your favorite social networks. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M also includes Dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) support so you can connect faster and with more stability to wireless networks around you.

1/6000 sec Shutter Speed
You have a split second to take the shot your family will be talking about for generations. Take it with the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M, which boasts a shutter speed of 1/6000 sec, the fastest in its class. With that kind of shutter speed-and the fast autofocus system-you can capture a skater whipping by or a snowboarder in midair, without a hint of motion blur.

8.6fps Continuous Shooting
The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M lets you shoot continuously at an ultra-fast rate of 8.6 frames per second to ensure you get the shot you want. The advanced autofocus system brings crystal clarity to fast-moving subjects and a short shutter release lag helps you capture the fleeting moment before the subject moves out of frame.

Full HD Moive (1080/60p)
The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M may not look like a camcorder, but it capably captures Full HD 1080/60P video. With uncompromising performance bolstered by an 18-200mm lens and wide zoom capability, the NX300M delivers smooth, professional-looking videos that play well on your HDTV. When you're ready for showtime, an HDMI interface lets you transmit your vision straight to the big screen.

True 3D creator
Featuring the world's first single lens system for capturing 2D and 3D images, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M is also the only interchangeable-lens camera that lets you shoot stills and movies in 3D via Samsung 45mm 2D/3D lens. When you're done shooting, let your friends back home feel as if they were there with you, by showing off your stunningly vivid adventures on a compatible 3D HDTV.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 is the perfect match with the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300M to bring out all the details for crisp professional looking photos. Organize photos by the location they were taken with GPS tagging. View and make adjustments to video clips, turn them into still images, or trim and edit according to your needs.

Camera and features work perfectly. I am however having a problem editing raw files (srw) using Adobe elements 10. I am sure I will work it out. Other wise extremely happy with the camera, 50-200 lens and sef 20A flash.

I wanted something that was more compact and easier to carry around every day then my dslr. the Samsung NX 300 is the best camera I've had yet. it has great features and the best part is that it has a tilting screen and allows me to raise the camera over my head and still be able to see what I am taking a picture of

Excellent quality, features, and value

By

from Massachusetts, USA

I've spent a good amount of time researching various mirrorless cameras on the market, including reading lots of technical reviews and reading a camera gear oriented website, and finally settled on this Samsung camera. My reasons were: * the amount of different features for the price * beautiful touch screen with touch focus and one-touch-shutter--it's really a very nice option to have (and can always be disabled when needed) * menus are very quick to navigate. Love the dedicated ISO button and a quick way to swap various settings via touch screen, iFn button on lenses, or the Fn button on the camera * tilting and flipping display--I don't really take "selfies", but it's very nice to have a travel "selfie" every once in a while * a good selection of reasonably priced lenses, including multiple "pancake" prime lens options * lightweight, stylish (practically pocketable with a 30mm pancake lens) * very nice accurate color representation--skin tones are rendered very true to life, and auto-white balance works very well. Photographs come out very realistic (can add that overexaggerated vibrance that's so popular with other camera makers in post-processing) * comes bundled with Adobe Photoshop 5 software! I actually did not have it before but used Photoshop Elements, so even better value! * good high ISO performance (even better if you process RAW files) * does pretty well at resolving fine details like foliage * nice easy panorama mode * good 1080p 60fps video * excellent customer support! I had to do an RMA due to a faulty lens, and turnaround for me was exactly one week! And I even got a nice detailed personalized letter with what was done with the camera/lens. Very impressed. * fairly frequent firmware updates * ability to e-mail photographs directly from the camera via Wi-Fi!! * small thing, but the manual is very well written! There's a great introduction to the basics of photography that I gave to my significant other to read. Many other camera manufacturers assume that their buyers should learn the basics elsewhere and just include the usual product description and operation details. Samsung actually provides some insight about exposure, depth of field, etc. A thoughtful touch! ----Things I wish for in the future:---- * fixing noise reduction in JPEG outputs: it's a bit too strong at moderate to high ISO, and turning off noise reduction in the menu seems to not actually turn it off for JPEG outputs (a known issue--is it a bug?) Would be great to either have refined noise reduction algorithms or the option to truly turn off noise reduction in the menu. Otherwise, processing RAW at high ISO is highly recommended. * I so wish there were contacts for an EVF attachment (and an optional EVF attachment developed) where the socket for the flash is located * Would be great to have more flash modes - weaker flash options for better fill flash * Ability to set auto focus range (for less AF hunting for movies or in low light conditions or with slow-focusing lenses) * Would be nice to add ability to upload to Flickr directly from camera (but currently there are other options, such as Facebook and Picasa) Overall, this is an excellent camera, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends!

Superior results in a very portable camera

By

from San Diego, CA, USA

After much research I purchased the NX300 as a backup camera for my larger DSLR. After a week of using it I don't consider it a backup anymore; more like a co-worker for the larger DSLR. While very light the NX300 is very sturdy and a joy to carry around. The menu system is intuitive and it took a very short time to get used to using the AMOLED screen instead of an eye aperture. The grip is sturdy and the controls are easily accessible and intuitive. I had several people inquire about the camera as I used it due to its retro look (I have the brown leather looking body). I let each of them handle it extensively and all were suitably impressed with its look, feel and functionality. The only negative I have encountered is auto focus difficulty in low light with both the 18 - 55mm and 50 - 200mm lenses (much more noticeable with the 50 - 200mm). I worked around this by switching focus to manual on the lenses. Despite this one drawback I really enjoy the NX300 and look forward to using it on a daily basis. The clarity and color in pictures is excellent and I would strongly recommend the NX300 for anyone (beginner to pro).
