Samsung has announced the release of a revolutionary new digital camera, the Samsung NX10 digital single-lens Camera, in India that is claimed to be the world’s first mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera with ultra-high resolution APS-C size CMOS sensor.
The new Samsung NX10 features an APS-C size CMOS sensor and incorporates a number of advanced industry-leading imaging technologies and it’s smart slim design and powerful functions mark a new era in digital photography.
Samsung NX10 is a compact interchangeable-lens digital single-lens camera, that features an APS-C size CMOS sensor and an ultra lightweight body, that produces high-quality images comparable to Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras.
Samsung NX10 uses a high precision electronic viewfinder, instead of the traditional reflective mirror and prism used in Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras, which significantly reduces the camera’s body size making it compact.
The NX10 camera measures 123 x 87 x 39.8 mm and weighs only 353 gms, and is ergonomically designed with a clipper-built design.
The Samsung NX10 is equipped with Samsung’s exclusive Fast and Decisive Contrast AF, providing a 15-zone (basic) and 35-zone (feature) automatic focus, and supporting 247-zone multi-zones metering.
Samsung NX10 digital single-lens camera is not affected by the delay produced by the reflector; its high-speed continuous shooting function can shoot up to three frames per second for a maximum of 10 superior photos at 14.6 megapixels.
The Samsung NX10 digital single-lens camera utilises the 14.6 M APS-C CMOS sensor and ultra-fast image processor DRIMe II Pro to capture detailed and vivid images. Meanwhile, its larger light-sensitive area can easily soften the silhouette highlighting the subject during shooting.
The Samsung NX10 camera’s APS-C sensor and ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 3200, makes its performance in colour reproduction and noise control equal to that of Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras.
The Samsung NX10 beholds a 3.0-inch LCD screen that features high-quality AMOLED technology that only uses one-eighth of the power consumption compared to traditional TFT screens. When shooting in bright sunshine or at acute angles the AMOLED display screen remains clear and bright with no reflection or discoloration supporting 10,000:1 contrast ratio.
In addition, the Samsung NX10’s electronic viewfinder has a 100% vision field and 86% magnification and can sense when users look through the viewfinder, automatically shutting down the AMOLED screen to conserve power.
The Samsung NX10 digital single-lens camera features the popular 720p HD video recording function which can record 1280 x 720, 640 x 480, 320 x 340 MP4 (H.264 ) format AAC mono video. Users can produce professional-looking, high definition movies with the 1280 x 720, 16:9 ratio function.
Samsung is also introducing the K-Mount for the NX system, which will also be compatible with Samsung DSLR GX series. These high-quality lenses of various focal lengths from the K-mount series will improve the shooting ability of the new NX10.
The Samsung NX10 camera is available in two versions; one with 18-55 mm lens kit which is priced for Rs. 42,990 and the other version featuring a 30 mm Pan Cake lens which comes for Rs. 44,990.
