Samsung NX10 Finally Announced!

This is pretty big news in the camera world. Samsung has finally lifted the veil on their new NX10 and 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

  • 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

    I decided that Santa should give me a belated gift and ordered the Canon SX200 IS. It will arrive in a couple of days and I’ll let you know how it goes. I was smitten with the megazoom, manual overrides and HD video. I need something light for all the months it’s either too cold or too hot here to comfortably keep my ‘good’ camera in the car for long.
    PS I like all things oceany

      My buddy just bought one for his girlfriend for Christmas and says she loves it. That camera’s gotten rave reviews. Good for you for pulling the trigger on it. Can’t wait to see the photos you get out of it.
