Samsung NX300 Camera Review


Samsung never used to be a big name in film cameras but has become one of the leading brands in digital photography. Ironically, its popular Galaxy smartphones are helping to dig a grave for point-and-shoot cameras – including Samsung's own. […]

Ultimately, the NX300 gives the impression of an aspiring champ that isn’t quite there yet – just like Samsung’s NX system in general. If you can live with the restrictions, the NX300 is an attractive upgrade from your old point-and-shoot camera or a...

Samsung NX300 Review


We have to admit to salivating over this camera when Samsung unveiled their NX300 ($749-799) at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this past January. Alas it was a prototype so we had to cool our heels, waiting for a production unit. Well, it finally...

Super stills, very good 1080p videos ; High-quality 3.3-inch touchscreen ; Best implementation of Wi-Fi in a camera

No EVF, not even as an option ; 3D lens way too expensive

The Samsung NX300 is a great next-step camera for someone who wants high-quality stills and solid videos from an interchangeable lens camera with a large sensor.

The Samsung NX300 is a speedy mirrorless compact that captures excellent images and offers well-executed integrated Wi-Fi for easy online photo sharing.

Sharp kit lens. Excellent high ISO performance. Retro chrome and leatherette styling. Tilting, touch-screen display. 7fps burst shooting. Short shutter lag. Wi-Fi. 3D lens support. 1080p60 video. Includes Adobe Lightroom software

No EVF option. External battery charger not included. Lacks built-in flash and mic input

The Samsung NX300 ($799.99 list with 18-55mm lens) is the latest midrange entry in Samsung's mirrorless camera line. Its 20-megapixel APS-C image sensor is the same size found in consumer D-SLRs, and its image quality and performance are among the best...

To test Samsung's NX 300 compact system camera, we took it to a Wild West-meets-Pinterest wedding at a ranch in New Mexico.

Samsung NX300: Lab Test Results & Comments


The NX300 follows the company's NX210 and updates many features. Its new WLAN system, for example, now supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz systems for better data transfer. (Note: 5GHz systems eliminate interference better than the older 2.4GHz standard.) The...

Compact body with a very nice high-class finish ; Fast burst mode ; Swivel LCD ; Very good resolution results

Missing optical or electronic viewfinder

Camera Test: Samsung NX300


If there were any doubts that Samsung is making a name for itself in the camera business, they were put to rest with two simultaneous introductions this year. The Galaxy camera turned the tables on the mobile phone world by finally creating a camera...

My guess is that some people are a little wary of Samsung cameras. Whether they are unsure of the image quality or uncertain of the build and design of the camera, those that are hesitant can cite reasons that are founded in least up until...

Open source licenses ; Fast Autofocus ; Sharp images even from kit lens ; Great Wi-Fi connectivity ; Touchscreen is very responsive

Battery only charges in camera ; Less than stellar battery life

The Samsung NX300 really does earn the title of the flagship NX mirrorless camera. It offers a classic leatherette skin draped over a sleek metal body. It is solid and sturdy--the best made NX of the entire lineup. Its image quality is clean and sharp,...

The latest NX offers a smart blend of style, convenience, and performance.

The NX300 is a great camera. So what? Plenty of manufacturers are making great cameras that are dying on the vine. This one doesn't say Canon or Nikon on it—why should you care? Why should you throw in with an upstart brand—especially one without a...
