Samsung NX30 Preview


Samsung's award-winning NX-series will be getting a new sibling soon, in the form of the NX30. It features a 16MP CMOS image sensor mated to the DRIMeIV Image Processor for faster shooting (1/8000 sec shutter and 9 FPS continuous shooting), improved...

Fantastic all-rounder with lots of added extras

It seems like Samsung has finally made a camera which enthusiasts can aspire to own. It's a great camera to use, and crucially, images are fantastic. The NX system is starting to become a more complete package, with a decent, if limited, range of...

Samsung NX30 review


The Samsung NX30 is the latest edition to the company's steadily evolving line of compact system cameras, assuming top-dog position and unseating the visually comparable NX20.

Re-thought body lay-out, flip-up viewfinder and vibrant rear LCD, versatile Wi-Fi features, i-Function lens system

Plasticky build, slight softening towards frame edges with kit lens, should be available with powered lens kit bundle, wind noise on movies

A nice touch is the inclusion of the full version of Adobe’s well-regarded editing software, Lightroom 5, which costs £102.57 direct from Adobe. The NX30 also has a neat Picture Wizard menu containing nine presets and three custom settings to set image...

Samsung NX30


Every CES brings something exciting at the upper end of Samsung's camera range. Last year, it was the almost pocket-sized NX300; this year it's the more traditional DSLR-wannabe NX30, with a reinvented sensor and super-bright fold-out 3in AMOLED...

Image quality, features and design make this a tempting – and viable – alternative to a semi-pro DSLR
