Samsung SMART Camera NX2000
The 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor in the NX2000, produced entirely by Samsung in-house, is said to produce extremely sharp and highly detailed images, even in low light conditions. The NX2000's capabilities are boosted by its DRIMe IV engine which works to reduce noise, improve speed and enable superior color reproduction.
The camera features 8fps fast continuous shooting, 1/4000th second top shutter speed and a wide ISO range (100 to 25600.) Ease of use is intrinsic to the NX2000 and the large 3.7-inch WVGA Full Touch Screen provides a convenient and intuitive navigation tool to access a range of features. SMART mode offers 14 different scene modes, a selection of settings which reflect your shooting environment and needs. Users can take photos of fast-moving subjects, such as a child running with Action Freeze or capture everyone’s “good side” with Best Face which takes five consecutive photos and lets the user select the best facial expression of each person in the picture. Users simply select the mode that fits their needs and enjoy the expert results.
With a choice of 12 interchangeable lenses, aspiring photographers have improved control over the images they shoot with the NX2000. From ultra-compact pancake lenses and versatile zooms, to a premium portrait lens and a macro lens, the wide lens selection only enhances the photographic experience. Samsung’s innovative i-Function system allows users to further unleash their creativity by controlling various settings with the lens, such as the aperture or shutter speed, so professional-quality images are more achievable than ever.
The 3D Still and Movie Recording capabilities of the NX2000, when coupled with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens (sold separately), bring an added element of realism to photos and videos, which can be replayed and enjoyed on compatible 3D TVs. Full HD Video Recording ensures that movies retain the same level of detail, color and quality as stills, so users can view their story just the way it happened.
Enhanced Wi-Fi Connectivity is at the heart of the NX2000, enabled by Samsung's SMART CAMERA 2.0 technology, offering a host of functions which make it easy to share and store images directly from the camera. The Samsung SMART CAMERA App, available on both Android and iOS platforms, provides a streamlined way of linking smart devices, ensuring that every tech savvy user’s treasured memories are stored without fuss. AutoShare sends photos, as they are taken, directly from the NX2000 to a smartphone or tablet, via a direct Wi-Fi connection. Special memories can be shared instantaneously from the smartphone when users aren’t connected to an access point, and images are also instantly backed up for those who are constantly on the go and don’t have time to worry about storage.
The integrated Near Field Communication (NFC) technology seamlessly links the NX2000 to many NFC-enabled Android smartphones and tablets. Simply tap the camera with the smart device and NFC immediately launches the Samsung SMART CAMERA App and automatically pairs the device via a direct Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, users can sync their favorite social website, such as Facebook, to the dedicated Direct Link hot key, for menu-free simplified sharing with the touch of one button.
True to its commitment to capturing professional quality images, the NX2000 also includes Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4, bolstering its offering to advanced photographers. With an array of tools, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is the essential photography workflow application allowing photography enthusiasts and professionals to enhance, organize and share photos.
The NX2000 (MSRP: $649.99) will be available in white, black and pink from authorized Samsung retailers nationwide and at www.samsung.com.
