The Samsung NX500 is an ultra-compact mirrorless camera with a 28.2-megapixel back-illuminated APS-C CMOS sensor, high-speed shooting at up to 9fps, a 3-inch 1036k-dot AMOLED touchscreen monitor, plus 4K video recording.
4K UHD Video Recording
Record true 4K video for 4X the resolution and details of Full HD. With HEVC (H.265) support, capture extreme details using half the storage space typically used for HD recording.
NX Autofocus System III
The NX500 has the power to capture life’s precious moments in amazing detail, thanks to an exceptionally fast NX Autofocus System III that features hybrid auto focus. It has the perfect combo of speed and accuracy.
28 Megapixel BSI APS-C Sensor
The NX500 uses the world’s first 28MP, BSI APS/C size image sensor. At 28MP of resolution, it is the highest resolution APS/C size sensor available. Compared to front side illumination (FSI), its back side illumination technology (BSI) allows more light to reach the sensor, resulting in lower noise and improved image detail.
DRIMe V Processor
The DRIMe V is Samsung’s fastest, most powerful image processor yet. It has the speed, performance and accuracy for photos and video in a variety of shooting conditions.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
The NX500 supports the advanced Wi-Fi 802.11n for remote control and instant transfers of high-res photos and videos. Together with Bluetooth® and NFC, you get fast connectivity for easy sharing.
Samsung Auto Shot uses a predictive algorithm to track movement and automatically trigger the shutter at just the right moment.
DUAL Dial and Hybrid UI
Two independent command dials and a hybrid UI that includes both a touch screen and a range of buttons provide quick and easy access to your key settings on the fly.
The NX500 fits beautifully in the palm of your hand, and features a slanted shutter button that is easy to press. It gives you the perfect combination of steadiness and ergonomics for great shots.
You can tilt the 3-inch display 90° and rotate it 180°, and with a Full VGA AMOLED screen, you’ll always see the shot clearly—even outdoors in bright sunlight.
9fps Continuous Shooting
With continuous shooting, you can capture a burst of images at 9 frames per second. And with the advanced AF system, it continuously focuses so you don’t lose detail as the subject moves.
Fast 1/6000s Shutter Speed
Precious moments can come and go in an instant. With a fast shutter speed of 1/6000 of a second, the NX500 can freeze and capture fast moving subjects with clarity.
The NX500 shoots up to ISO 25600, making it very sensitive to light. That means you can take great shots in tricky lighting indoors or even outside at night, with minimal noise or blur.
Low Light Performance
Thanks to a truly innovative technology called Adaptive Noise Reduction, the NX500 is capable of producing crystal clear images virtually free of noise, even set at a high ISO of 25600.
Take time-lapse shots like a pro. Capture clouds moving or a flower blooming in high-res stills. You can adjust the interval between 1 second and 24 hours, and it even converts the stills to UHD quality video.
