Samsung Adds Smart Camera NX2000 to Its NX Line
Samsung has announced a new addition to its NX family with the launch of the NX2000.
Incorporating Samsung's Smart Camera technology, the NX2000 features a large 20.3-megapixel ASP-C CMOS Sensor, boosted by a DRIMe IV engine which works to reduce noise, improve speed and enable superior color reproduction. On the go, the the 1/4000th second top shutter speed makes capturing clear, blur free images an achievable task, while the wide ISO range (100 to 25600) helps to deliver images that are beautifully balanced, regardless of the light conditions.
Its 3.7-inch WVGA Full Touch Screen provides a convenient and intuitive navigation tool to access a range of features, while the SMART mode provides even more options to aid you in taking the perfect shot with its 14 different scene modes and a selection of settings that reflect your shooting environment and needs. Users can take photos of fast-moving subjects, such as a child running, with Action Freeze or capture pretty portraits with Best Face which takes five consecutive photos and lets the user select the best facial expression of each person in the picture.
The 3D Still and Movie Recording capabilities of the NX2000, when coupled with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens, bring an added element of realism to photos and videos, which can be replayed and enjoyed on compatible 3D TVs. Full HD Video Recording ensures that movies retain the same level of detail, color and quality as stills, so users can view their story just the way it happened.
The Samsung Smart Camera App, available on both Android and iOS platforms, provides a streamlined way of linking smart devices, ensuring that every tech savvy user’s treasured memories are stored without fuss. AutoShare sends photos, as they are taken, directly from the NX2000 to a smartphone or tablet, via a direct Wi-Fi connection.
Also, the integrated NFC technology seamlessly links the NX2000 to many NFC-enabled Android smartphones and tablets. Additionally, users can sync their favorite social website (such as Facebook), to the dedicated Direct Link hot key, for menu-free simplified sharing with the touch of a single button.
The Samsung Smart Camera NX2000 is available in black, white, or pink, at S$849 from Mid July onwards, and is bundled with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 (valued at S$178). The 45mm 2D/3D lens is also available at S$649.
