Samsung NX Concept

Samsung on the day before the PMA expo has revealed a concept version of a camera that it believes should provide the image quality of a digital SLR with the overall smaller size of a compact camera. The NX has an SLR's APS-C sensor size but scraps the traditional mirror box for an electronic viewfinder; the difference reduces the gap between lens and sensor by 60 percent while simultaneously improving low-light performance and reducing visible noise as a result. Live previews on the larger LCD are also made easier.

Most technical details have been omitted in the early look at the concept, though its controls are again a cross between DSLRs and compacts with a relatively simple scheme that still leaves room for a full-manual mode as well as aperture and shutter priority modes; it also teases a movie mode that is again made easier by the absence of a typical mirror array.

Samsung intends NX models for production and will ship the first complete model in the second half of the year.
