Samsung Electronics unveiled the Galaxy NX, the world’s first 4G interchangeable lens Connected Compact System Camera (CSC), last night at a glitzy event in London featuring performances from Will.i.am and Emili Sande.
Samsung claims the 20.3MP APS-C Sensor produces images which are bright and detailed, even in low light conditions, while the DRIMe IV Image Signal Processor delivers both speed and accuracy.
Its Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) System ensures accurate phase and contrast detection, Samsung claims, so you can capture crisp, vibrant shots, while the 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps shooting means you can capture the action as it is happening.
Lenses include compact pancake lenses and an ultra-wide fisheye, to longer prime and zoom lenses. True 3D Creator allows you to shoot images and movies in 3D with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens.
Featuring Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the camera can choose between a large number Android apps while 30 Smart Mode options mean you can choose the optimum settings for the environment you are capturing. Multi Exposure merges two different shots together to produce one distinctive image, while Animated Photo connects continuous shots of up to five seconds, creating a moving GIF file.
For added realism, Sound & Shot stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken, so moments are captured exactly as they happen.
The Galaxy NX will be available to buy in the UK as a 4G variant that supports 3G from selected online and high street retailers this summer. More information can be found here: www.samsung.com/uk/GalaxyNXCamera/.
