Mike, North Essex Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Well balanced and handles well even in my big hands.
Looks the "biz" and is well built.
Decided to get this compact system camera instead of an DSLR...definitely a good decision, light, compact and user friendly.
Bad points:
Lens are good but pricey...hopefully some independent manufacturers will join the party and get the range of lens up and prices down.

Build materials are not top notch BUT the price reflects this, and the plus points more than make up for this very minor niggle.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Life is yours to capture and share in the moment with the Samsung NX300 SMART Compact System Camera with 18-55 mm Lens in black.

Large, high-detail sensor

Photographers on the move are in for a treat with this totally portable, high-performance camera that delivers pro-standard results.

Its crowning glory is a 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor with Phase detection AF, which captures incredible high-resolution images with precision detail rendering and amazingly vivid colours. It quite simply leads its class.

The largest sensor used in a mirrorless camera at 23.5 × 15.7 mm, it’s especially good for out-focusing photography as it collects the most light to create gorgeous images with dramatic noise reduction – even in dim lighting.

Powerful image processor and broad ISO range

With its next-generation DSP imaging engine, the camera’s DRIMeIV image processor captures all those timeless moments perfectly. Faster than previous models, its enhanced performance offers better colour reproduction and satisfying noise reduction.

Your images will look beautifully natural whether you’re in bright light, indoors or outdoors at night as the Samsung NX30-0 Smart Camera allows you to shoot across a massive ISO range of 100 – 25600. Grab high-speed shots with low noise and minimal blurring, even in dim conditions.

Photograph once-off moments and precious memories in equally high-quality 2D or 3D modes with enhanced Full HD movie clarity to enjoy forever.

Advanced focus and rapid shutter speed

Combining Phase detection AF and contrast AF for quicker, more precise autofocus, the N-X300 Compact System Camera analyses subject distance in an instant, as contrast AF fine-tines focusing for incredible contrast.

The fastest-in-class 1/6000s Super Speed shutter facilitates accurate, sharply-defined images for all shooting scenarios, coupling with the rapid autofocus system to dynamically capture high-octane scenes without any blur.

Take advantage of 8.6 fps continuous shooting to render action sequences in a set of incredibly clear stills, benefiting from the advanced autofocus and short shutter release lag.

3D photos and videos

Boasting a leading-edge one-lens 2D and 3D system, the Samsung NX300 Interchangeable Lens Camera will bring your holiday snaps and videos to life with True 3D Creator. Show off your multidimensional adventures to friends on a compatible 3D HDTV!

Even in its diminutive frame, this compact system camera proficiently shoots Full HD 1080/60p videos, its performance strengthened by a wide zoom capability and smooth, professional-looking videos you can play back on your HDTV via the HDMI interface.

Ready to share when you are

Use the devoted Direct Link hotkey to rapidly establish a wireless connection with your mobile phone, tablet, PC or Smart HDTV, directly sharing images and moments with friends and family or on social networks. Dual-band (2.4 and 5 GHz) support facilitates a faster, more stable connection with wireless networks.

Samsung MobileLink enables direct image or album transfer to an Android smartphone, iPhone or tablet, without needing to save the image in a text or email. Control the album on your device and see the changes saved on your camera too.

Interface the facts

The Samsung Smart NX300 Camera affords you loads of options, even when navigating menus on the 3.31” WVGA hybrid touchscreen. Teamed with a five-way button, you can rapidly choose options to apply effects, share images, add text and more.

This easy-to-use screen also flips up 90º and down 45º, enabling you to frame and capture tricky low or high angled images without awkwardly positioning your body. More exciting photo opportunities are yours with less hassle thanks to this great screen.

Getting creative in-camera

Add drama and artistic flair to your images in an instant with Creative Shot, which automatically analyses the scene to prepare suitable effects. Faces are brighter and clearer, outdoor scenes more colourful with this intelligent feature.

Smart Filter lets you get creative on the display itself, with amazing functions such as Cartoon Filter, Cross Filter, Ink Painting, Half-tone Dot and even more, adjusting light, colour and line for a mind-boggling range of visual accents.
