SHOOT FAST. SHARE FASTER. The NX300 combines SPEED, PERFORMANCE and CONNECTIVITY for perfect shooting in every moment.
Sometimes a split second makes all the difference. The new Samsung NX300 lets you quickly and perfectly capture every magical moment. With the advanced hybrid autofocus system, you can shoot sharp and detailed images more spontaneously than ever. You can also take continuous shots at a rate of 8.6 frames per second, so amazing action photos are now even easier. Enjoy it all with stunning high-quality and vividly realistic colour thanks to the 20.3-megapixel sensor, and even share memories quickly and easily with wireless connectivity.
Taking the sensor to the next level Advanced 20.3M APS-C CMOS Sensor
Worthy of professional photographers, but made for the enthusiast, the 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor—now with Phase detection AF—delivers high-quality images and lifelike colours with the highest resolution in its class. It's also ideal for out-focusing photography, thanks to a sensor that's the largest used in a mirrorless camera. The sensor, which measures 23.5mm x 15.7mm, collects the most light so you can create beautiful images without noise, even in low-lit situations.
Capture with greater clarity and speed.
Advanced Hybrid AF System
The hybrid AF (autofocus) system combines Phase detection AF and contrast AF for faster and more accurate autofocusing. Phase detection AF nearly instantaneously determines the distance of your subject, while contrast AF fine-tunes the focus for maximum contrast. Enabled by an incredibly short shutter lag, the hybrid AF System allows you to shoot accurate, sharply detailed images faster.
Capture the moments within a moment
8.6fps Continuous Shooting
When you're shooting fast-moving action such as a tennis player stretching for a shot at the net, effortlessly capture the entire sequence with a series of brilliantly clear stills. The NX300 lets you shoot continuously at an ultra-fast rate of 8.6 frames per second to ensure you get the shot you want. The advanced autofocus system brings crystal clarity to fast-moving subjects, and a short shutter release lag helps you capture the fleeting moment before the subject moves out of frame.
The speed you need for great photography
1/6000s Super Speed Shutter
You have a split second to take the shot your family will be talking about for generations. Take it with the NX300, which boasts a shutter speed of 1/6000s, the fastest in its class. With that kind of shutter speed—and the fast autofocus system—you can capture a skater whipping by or a snowboarder in midair, without a hint of motion blur.

You can also hold the camera over a crowd for a high-angle shot and see exactly what you're getting. Shooting from a variety of angles can also make for more exciting photo albums.

Designed to capture attention with retro modern style
Retro Modern Design
Taking its cues from the simplicity of vintage camera design and from state-of-the-art innovation, the design of the NX300 impresses with elegant, flowing lines and a luxuriously textured feel. It's crafted from sturdy metal, yet is compact and lightweight for easy on-the-go shooting. Sharp edging presents a sleek silhouette when viewed from above, while an ergonomic design ensures a safe and steady grip.

Discover the true beauty of Full HD video
Full HD Movie (1080/60P)
The NX300 may not look like a camcorder, but it capably captures Full HD 1080/60P video. With uncompromising performance bolstered by an 18-200mm lens and wide zoom capability, the NX300 delivers smooth, professional-looking videos that play well on your HDTV. When you're ready for showtime, an HDMI interface lets you transmit your vision straight to the big screen.
Wide Range ISO (100~25600)
Capturing natural-looking images indoors, or outside at night, can require a higher ISO than most cameras allow. The NX300 lets you shoot up to ISO 25600 making it twice as sensitive to light as the previous model—so you can snap high-speed photos with minimal noise and blurring, even in low light.
Tap Smart Mode to access a variety of settings that help you get the perfect shot every time—even if you're not a pro. Capture a high-speed scene with Sports Capture, or let Rich Tone create extraordinarily surrealistic photos with colours that pop. Just choose the mode you want and shoot perfection.
Instantly add emotional impact to your images without stopping to figure out which mode to use. Creative Shot automatically analyzes the scene when you take the shot, and prepares the appropriate effects. So a happy face beams a little brighter, and a sunset glows with a touch more orange.
Boost creative fun with the Smart Filter –right on the display! Cartoon filter makes any photo look like an animated film scene while Cross Filter makes light sources appear to have several points of light, like stars. There's also Ink Painting, Half-tone Dot and more ways for you to express your creative side.

I like to travel and was looking for something small and easy to use and yet still have all the bells and whistles of a DSLR and I think now with the Samsung NX300 I have found it !
This camera is still new to me and I have a way to go yet to get to know it properly but these past few days have to be honest blown my mind !
This camera is unbelievable and does things that 5 years ago we could only dream of , also if you are someone who uses most social media sites then this is the best camera you could buy today . You can take a picture and send it to Facebook , flickr ,twitter etc in seconds .
I could give you the stats as others have on here but the bottom line is that this camera is ...The future :)
Little update.... Friday 20.3.15... I have had this camera now for one week and it is great ! I have taken some very impressive shots and really got the feel for it now . it is ideal for anyone wanting to take shots of say items to sell or for business purposes say for estate agents who wish to take pictures and then send straight to the office or website ? It is so light to carry and you can walk for miles and hardly notice you have it on your shoulder or round your neck ! I will be of course be giving it a more through testing as the weeks go by but just wanted to share this update with anyone looking to buy this awesome camera ..oh and the free lightroom software is brilliant !Read more ›
Those boundaries are now extending even beyond what professionals could possibly discern and for all the detail, it often comes down to that indefinable 'feel' factor. However, first for some detail:
* LCD screen
A good size to make composition pretty easy, pivots upwards to 90 degrees to the body (useful for low level shots) and also down to about 45 degrees for those higher ones. There isn't an integrated view finder and the screen is the only means by which to compose shots. Although the screen has been designed to cope with brightly lit conditions this could present problems with glare for some users and others may simply prefer using a viewfinder for composition.
The screen is touch-sensitive and you can take a shot with a touch of the screen (to the extent that it is worth switching the camera off if you are walking with it bouncing against you). It is also possible to identify and track a subject in a busy scene with sharply focused results.
* Smart options:
Lots of programmed shooting options available and I found most easy to get to grips with. These may seem like gimmicks or must have features depending on usage but perhaps better to have something and not use it than vice versa:
1. Beauty Face: automatic programming to correct facial imperfections.Read more ›
I'll start with the problems:
First camera had an issue where the captured image would go all garbled - example at [...]
The replacement camera feels a bit sluggish in comparison to the first, having to sometimes tap the touch screen multiple times to get a response.
Another way it feels sluggish, is on the first camera, using the instant touch AF, I could pretty much instantly take another photo once the review image had gone. Now on the new one I am having to wait until the processing has finished before I can take another. This adds about a couple of seconds. This may not sound like much, but it has made what was a really useful feature to me a bit useless.
The next problem is not really anything to do with a faulty camera - Video!
NX1000 (and I assume NX20/200/210) had a video mode dial. In there you got a proper 16:9 view of what will be captured, and FULL control over settings.
On the NX300, there is no video mode dial, so you have no way of getting a 16:9 preview until you hit record!
At first you may think you get full manual control over video, as in each respective PASM mode, you will get control over aperture, shutter, etc, but you WILL NOT get control over ISO - it's auto and that's that!
There are ways they could address those two issues, but one can't buy a camera on the hopes that they will, and I am posting this as a warning to those it would bother.
Focus still struggles a bit in dimmer light.Read more ›
