The Samsung NX30 release date has been confirmed by Amazon and the flagship NX-mount camera is now available for pre-order at the world’s most popular retailer.
In recent times, it has come to our attention that Samsung is readying a new camera to take over the flagship crown of the NX series. It has been revealed that it will be a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera that will be sold as Samsung NX1 and that it will be significantly more powerful than the NX30.
With no official announcement made in the past few weeks, the flagship NX-mount position has been claimed by the brand new NX30. The shooter has been introduced officially by the South Korean company at CES 2014, although no availability information has been revealed.
Thankfully, Amazon has entered the fray by revealing its release date and price, while beginning to take pre-orders for it. Moreover, the most popular retailer in the world has confirmed some specifications and some more photos.
Amazon confirms Samsung NX30 specs list includes 20.3-megapixel sensor and 3-inch touchscreen
Warming the seat for the NX1 will be an easy job for the NX30, as it features a 3-inch articulated AMOLED touchscreen on the back. Additionally, it sports a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor that takes crisp clear photos with amazing details and “intense colors”.
The product description also says that photographers can capture “dramatic” background and foreground blur, so that viewers will not take their eyes off the main subject.
Autofocusing is provided by the NX AF System II, which delivers quick and precise focusing, as one would expect from a high-end camera.
A tilting electronic viewfinder is also available on the back of the shooter, allowing users to frame their shots properly. A hot shoe mount can be used for attaching an external flash, if the built-in one does not do its job properly.
Shipping is said to begin this February for a price a little under $1,000
Samsung NX30 is sized at 5 x 3.8 x 1.6 inches and is weighing 13.3 ounces. It is a smart camera that comes packed with a multitude of “SMART” features, such as Social Media Upload, Photo Beam, Mobile Link, and e-mail support.
All of this is possible thanks to WiFi connectivity, which allows users to connect their camera to a smartphone or tablet with ease. NFC (Near Field Communication) technology is supported, too, linking two devices together using a simple touch.
Amazon says that the NX30 mirrorless camera will begin shipping on February 18, roughly three weeks from the moment of writing this article. It can be all yours for a price of $999.99, which also includes an 18-55mm lens.
In the meantime, there are no more details on the NX1. When they become available, we will be right here, reporting all the information, so stay tuned!
