This is pretty big news in the camera world. Samsung has finally lifted the veil on their new NX10 and dpreview.com has a 12-page preview. So what’s so special about this little badboy? The fact that’s it’s SO little. We’re talking a 4/3rds format competitor here. It’s even slightly smaller than the Panasonic G1. But unlike the small sensors of the 4/3rds and micro 4/3rds cameras offered by Panasonic and Olympus, the NX10 sports a 14.1 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor (much larger sensor than the 4/3rds format). It’s going to be very interesting to see how this camera performs.
Here are the key features of the Samsung NX10, as listed on dpreview.com
- 15.1 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor (presumed to be close relation to Pentax K7 sensor)
- 14.6 million effective pixels
- New Samsung NX mount (25.5mm flange-back distance)
- 720P movie capture (H.264, 30 fps)
- Contrast-detect autofocus
- 3.0″ AMOLED screen (614,000 dots, PenTile RGB array)
- 921k dot Electronic Viewfinder
- 30mm F2 pancake and 18-55mm standard zoom options
