Samsung has just announced its newest interchangeable lens cameras (ILCs) in the NX series, namely the NX20, NX210 and NX1000.
Clockwise from top: the NX20, NX210 and NX1000.
These new cameras all come with Wi-Fi connectivity built in to take advantage of Samsung's "Smart" features. Other common specifications include a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, 8fps continuous shooting at full resolution and full-HD video recording.
Like its predecessor, the NX20 has a DSLR-like form factor and features a built-in electronic viewfinder. What's new is the articulating 3-inch AMOLED screen, which will help users if they need to shoot from awkward angles.
The NX210 has the same 3-inch 614,000-dot display as the NX20, but is a fixed screen without articulation. Aside from on-board Wi-Fi, it doesn't seem to differ much from the earlier NX200.
With the NX1000, Samsung has gone with a cleaner design compared with the earlier NX100. The chassis has fewer curves, and it now looks more similar to the NX200/NX210. However, you can still tell it apart from the NX210, as the handgrip is not seamlessly integrated with the body.
As mentioned earlier, all three models come with Wi-Fi capabilities. This allows wireless uploading of images to social networks and also the ability to link to a Samsung smartphone, which will act as a wireless viewfinder and remote control. We've seen these features in the company's compacts such as the WB150F, but it's a first for Samsung's ILCs. Incidentally, Nikon's latest DSLR, the D3200, is also Wi-Fi enabled. However, that requires an optional accessory, the WU-1a module, which costs US$60 in the US.
