Samsung NX30

 

The Samsung NX30 is an excellent mirrorless camera with a unique titling EVF, but its burst shooting duration is limited.

Snappy autofocus. 8.6fps burst shooting. Excellent high ISO performance. Solid control layout. Vari-angle touch-screen display. Tilting EVF. Integrated flash. Wi-Fi with NFC. 1080p60 video with mic input.

Limited burst shooting. EVF lags in dim light. On the bulky side. No alternate kit or body only purchase options. Dedicated charger not included.

Wi-Fi is a standard feature in new cameras, but Samsung has been leading the pack in that functionality for some time now. The NX30 is no exception; it's easy enough to copy images and videos to your smartphone or tablet using the free Samsung Smart...

What kind of world does the Samsung NX30 live in? It's a DSLR-style mirrorless camera with a fully articulated touch screen, 1080/60p video and loads of connectivity. Based on specs alone it's a potentially good entry-to-mid level DSLR competitor, or a...

The NX30 looks and handles like a DSLR, but weights significantly less.

Adjustable eye level viewfinder and tilting rear panel AMOLED display ; Intuitive operation ; Clear and colorful image quality requiring few tweaks

Battery only chargeable in-camera

With its mix of snapshot and DSLR-type controls, the Smart Camera NX30 is a device that is easy to get to grips with and will deliver great-looking shots with plenty of color and contrast straight out of the camera. While there is nothing here really...

High ISO settings tend to show some noise ; Video results could be a little better ; Camera almost feels too lightweight with a bit too much plastic ; Camera is larger than most mirrorless ILCs ; Extendable EVF feels like overkill or a gimmick when...

Samsung NX30 Review: Midrange Mirrorless Goodness

 

I don't consider myself a professional photographer but I am a hobbyist who loves taking pictures and this is the Samsung NX30 review.

Super lightweight, great battery life, versatile with touch screen and movable viewfinder.

Video record button is placed where it can accidentally be pushed.
