20.3-megapixel camera touts Wi-Fi connectivity
The Samsung NX1000 mirrorless camera has gone on sale. Originally announced in April, the more budget-friendly of the NX Smart cameras, the NX1000 can use Wi-Fi to instantly upload images and video to social networks, cloud storage, or send in e-mails. A remote viewfinder app for supported Galaxy handhelds allows for control from 30 feet away, while MobileLink and AllShare can push images onto other compatible devices.
The 20.3-megapixel CMOS sensor is capable of 1080p HD video capture, with a 3-inch LCD screen for composing images. Shutter speeds can be set as high as 1/4000s. A Smart Auto setting can select the most appropriate scene mode for best results, or for those requiring full manual controls, the Smart Panel allows for customization to the aperature, shutter speed, flash intensity and other settings. Ten Smart Filters, a Selective Color function for isolating a single color, and a 3D Panorama feature round off the image processing extras.
Available in both black and white options, the NX1000 is on sale now for around $700.
