Samsung NX300M is rumored to be announced soon as a minor upgrade to the NX300, a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera unveiled earlier in 2013.
A few days before the Consumer Electronics Show 2013, Samsung revealed the NX210 successor, a new mirrorless camera called NX300. It supports the company’s NX-mount series of interchangeable lenses and it is packing decent specifications on paper.
Samsung NX300M manual appears on the company’s official website
It appears that the South Korean company is not happy about the device’s performances on the market and, as a result, the NX300 will be substituted by a slightly modified version, which will go by the name of NX300M.
Although this is just a rumor, it is based on pretty strong evidence. The Samsung NX300M specs and manual have been leaked on the company’s official website
Samsung NX300M specs to include AMOLED touchscreen with enhanced tilting capabilities
Potential customers are probably very curious to find out what has been changed in the NX300M when compared to the NX300. Well, according to the manual, the cameras are 99% identical, with the major distinction being the AMOLED touchscreen, which can be tilted more.
The Samsung NX300M will come packed with a 3.31-inch AMOLED touchscreen tiltable by up to 180-degrees and down by up to 45-degrees. On the other hand, the NX300 features the same AMOLED touch-based screen, but its tilting levels reach only 90-degrees upwards.
Upcoming NX-mount camera to retain the 3D ability of its predecessor
Samsung’s upcoming MILC will feature a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor, ISO sensitivity range between 100 and 25,600, full HD video recording at 60 frames per second with stereo audio support, and a Hybrid AF system, combining both contrast and phase detections.
A nice trait of the NX300 is its ability to shoot 3D images. The original camera was launched alongside the 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens. Since there are no other differences between the two, then the 3D photography function will be present in the upcoming model.
The NX300M will also be capable of connecting to smartphones and tablets through built-in NFC and WiFi. Its release date is unknown, but the current NX300 is available at Amazon for as low as $568.77.
