Article Index

The Samsung NX3000 is a low-cost APS-C compact system camera – for around $324 you get the body and a decent 16-50mm power zoom kit lens. This is the successor to the Samsung NX2000, and adds even more of a retro flavour to keep it in-line looks-wise with the recent Samsung NX Mini.

The 20.3-megapixel Samsung NX3000 is a compact system camera for the mobile generation, and should slot into most people’s lives like a dream. However, it’s not perfect – and not actually an NX2000 upgrade in every respect .

A large, bright 3.0" 460.8k-dot LCD monitor is incorporated into the camera design to enable clear monitoring and image playback as well as an efficient means for previsualizing camera settings and applying a host of shooting modes and creative effects. The screen features a 180° tilting design, too, making it ideal for self-portraits and for working from low angles. Also benefitting the creation of self-portraits is Wink Shot, which allows you to simply wink at the camera in order for the shutter to automatically be released.

Also contributing to the overall usability of the camera is a compact, ergonomic, and functional design that includes a textured hand grip and a hot shoe to facilitate the use of a wide array of accessories. The SEF8A external flash is bundled with the camera and features a guide number of 8m at ISO 100 and covers lenses up to 28mm (35mm equivalent).
