Samsung NX300 systeemcamera

Door -

Het eerste CES-nieuwtje is al binnen, vlak voor de officiële opening van de beurs in Las Vegas. Samsung heeft namelijk de NX300 systeemcamera aangekondigd. Het cijfer ‘3’ lijkt er op te duiden dat het hier om de derde generatie gaat, maar in feite gaat het om een aangepaste versie van de NX200 en NX210 (met wifi). Het ontwerp van de body van NX300 is nagenoeg identiek aan dat van zijn voorganger, maar Samsung heeft gezorgd voor een retrotintje met de metalen boven- en onderkant. De 20 megapixel-sensor lijkt identiek te zijn, behalve dan dat deze ook uitgerust is met fasedetectie autofocusdiodes (voor een hybride af-systeem).


Verbeteringen

Aan de achterzijde is wel het een en ander veranderd. Het OLED scherm is groter en meet nu 8,4 cm (16:9) met 768k dots. Het scherm is nu ook aanraakgevoelig én kantelbaar. De NX300 is verder voorzien van een snellere processor waarmee de camera in staat is om 9 foto’s per seconde te maken én 1080p films met 60 fps. 

Verder heeft Samsung nog een 45mm ojectief uitgebracht, waarmee zowel 2D als 3D foto’s gemaakt kunnen worden.
