Mirrorless Moves

 

When reviewing cameras, I like to put them through some real-life rigors. So, when my editor handed me the Samsung NX 300 a week before my friend's Wild West-meets-Pinterest wedding at her family's ranch in New Mexico, I figured a weekend in cowgirl...

Clean optics and a nice big sensor. Touchscreen display is easy to use and high-quality — I didn’t miss a viewfinder. Fast image capture. Manual controls are good, and auto mode yields great results. Wi-Fi sharing tools make image back-up a snap....

Gratuitous 3-D functions distract from a perfectly good lens — get the cheaper 2-D version. Underwhelming in-camera editing tools. Clunky novelty capture features. Super-shaky video — at least it’s 1080p. Purple lens flare and harsh automatic flash...

Samsung NX300

 

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 NX300 is the first camera to support the 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens. This fast prime is identical to the 45mm f/1.8, but adds support for 3D photo and video via a dual internal shutter system. The NX lens system is fairly well rounded, and includes two...

The Samsung NX300 is another powerful and affordable ILC, leading the way in features and performance for its price range. It also sports the largest sensor (APS-C) of any camera in its class. All these great features are supported by great image...

Image stabilization is not built into the camera, it must rely on the lens ; Highest ISO settings are not printable ; Very Poor battery life and no external charger for spare batteries ; Special features deplete battery even faster

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: Shoot like a pro, share like a teenager

 

It has interchangeable lenses and in-camera retouching, plus built-in Wi-Fi for easy Instagramming.

Large APS-C sensor with excellent high ISO performance ; High quality 18-55mm kit lens ; Built-in WiFi with companion Android and iOS apps ; Creative controls such as Smart Mode and Smart Filters Excellent manual focusing

LCD-only composition ; No accessory viewfinder option ; Lack of built-in flash ; In-camera battery charging unless you buy accessory charger

The Samsung NX300 provides a legitimate alternative to the and series. Its large APS-C sensor, sharp kit lens, and plethora of intelligent controls are worth investigating before you decide which compact system camera to buy.

Samsung NX300 Review

 

The NX300 is Samsung's new flagship compact system camera, replacing last year's NX210 model. The metal-bodied NX300 features a new 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system with both phase and contrast detection, expanded ISO...

The NX300's is Samsung's best compact system camera to date, offering cutting edge features and excellent image quality at a price that won't break the bank. We'd have liked a built-in flash, fully-articulating AMOLED screen, a dedicated AEL button and...

Samsung NX300 Review

 

The 20.3-megapixel NX300 is the most fully realized mirrorless, compact system camera Samsung has produced yet and one of the best on the market in its class. Though the camera is slightly bigger and heavier than its predecessors, the NX300's "retro...

Stylish "retro modern" design in two color schemes; attractive 3.3-inch AMOLED tilting touchscreen; new APS-C CMOS sensor with on-chip phase detection AF; better image quality, particularly in low light at high ISOs; faster all-around performance;...

Camera feels more plasticky than expected when you pick it up; slower shot-to-speeds compared to rivals; poor buffer depth with raw files; aggressive anti-noise processing destroys detail in high ISO shots; display smudges easily and is rather dim; no...
