Samsung just announced the new NX2000 that will be part of its new mirrorless cameras. This catching camera from the Korean company will come with a substantial sensor, a rear touch screen, and WiFi connectivity, tendency that we’ve seen in recent launches in the category. While some considered that the camera would use the Android OS – a rumor that began after leaked information a few weeks ago – it isn’t the case. We’ll see later what the new NX2000’s novelties are.
The Nx2000 model Will have an APS-C CMOS sensor with 20.3 MP, with an ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 25,600. Furthermore, it has a DRIMe IV image processor that allows the camera to take photographs at 8 frames per second. On the other hand, the touch screens aren’t absent in the Samsung mirror less renovation. The new NX2000 model will have a 3.7” touch screen that will allow for device menu navigation, as well as some of the camera controls. However, there are also some buttons to Record, go Home, and Play.
The camera is also geared towards beginners, bringing 14 different scene modes to be able to take a photo in different situations. Like many of the company’s products, it will also count on a Best Face function that allows the camera to take 5 consecutive photos, and then allows us to choose the best pose for each of the people in the picture. With these choices, the camera combines each person’s best pose in a single photo.
During January, Samsung presented the NX300, which used the new 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens, the first one in a 3D objective line. With the new NX2000 model, we find ourselves with this same objective, with which the decision to keep getting 3D technology to the consumer market is confirmed. The camera’s 3D photography capabilities can be explored when it’s paired with one of these objectives. Furthermore, it will count on HD filming capabilities, in 1080p. Finally, one of the functions we also saw in previous models is repeated in the new NX2000 model. As Panasonic also did with its G6, Samsung’s camera won’t count only on inbuilt WiFi, but also NFC (Near Field Communication) technology to make sure that file transfer between the camera and other devices (like smartphones) will be much easier and faster. Thanks to this connectivity, we’ll be able to synchronize the camera – and, consequently, the photographs – with some fundamental apps like Facebook, among others. This way, we see how this tendency is increasingly taken.
The camera will be available in black, white and pink. Its market value, they say, will be abour $650, with an inbuilt 18-55mm IOS objective. The release date hasn’t been announced, but the device can be preordered in some online stores, like B&H. Here, an interesting fact: the camera also comes with a free Adobe Lightroom 4 copy. Details about a more advanced line for objectives in 3D haven’t been revealed yet. Without a doubt, though, it will be the market’s next step if it proves its success.
