First Premium NX lens Samsung’s first S Series lens is launched alongside a compact standard zoom Along with the NX30, Samsung added two new lenses to its line-up for NX CSCs, including the first in its Premium S Series, which guarantees superior optical technology for professional image quality, and a compact standard zoom ideal for stills and movies.

Samsung announces newNX30

The Samsung NX30 is the new flagship for the NX line-up, and it combines high image quality with faster than ever speed and an unmatched photo- sharing experience. At the heart of the NX30 is a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor for sharp detail and intense colours in professional-quality images. The sensor is combined with the latest DRIMeIV Image Processor, which allows for a wide ISO sensitivity range of 100- 25,600 and even 3D capture with the Samsung 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens. The NX30 also offers 60 frames-per-second shooting with full HD 1080 video. The NX30 also features the Samsung NX AF System II, which ensures quick and accurate focusing in any situation, even with fast-moving scenes and subjects. The speed doesn’t stop there either – an exceptionally fast shutter speed of 1/8000sec matches the pace of professional DSLRs, while the maximum continuous shooting rate of nine frames-per-second lets you capture each split second of fast-moving action. OIS Duo technology in the NX30 also guarantees steady shots, whether you’re capturing stills or movies. Creativity made easy Unique to the NX30 is a tiltable electronic viewfinder with 2359k dots; this can be angled at up to 80˚ to make easy work of composing from different viewpoints. For even more flexibility, there’s also the three-inch Super AMOLED Swivel and Touch Display on the back, which can be turned by up to 180˚ side to side and 270˚ vertically. Getting your settings right is simple too, with Samsung’s i-Function system. This gives you access to advanced camera settings at the touch of a single button, or you can also use i-Function Plus to reprogram existing buttons and set up the controls as you want them. Two CustomModes on the mode dial let you retrieve common set-ups easily too. Smart sharing Samsung’s Smart Camera technology makes it easier than ever to share your photos with the NX30. The new Tag & Go function lets you pair the camera with a smartphone simply by touching the devices together, letting you tap and share your pictures instantly and easily. Photo Beam allows you to transfer images between devices by just touching them together, Autoshare automatically sends every photo you take to your smartphone or

Samsung 16-50mm f/2-2.8 S ED OIS The Samsung 16-50mm f/2-2.8 S ED OIS lens provides a zoom range equivalent to 24.6-77mm in 35mm format. With an aperture of f/2 at 16mm and f/2.8 at 50mm, it’s the brightest 3x zoom lens in its class. The design includes three aspherical lenses to eliminate spherical aberration, two extra-low dispersion lenses to reduce chromatic aberration and two extreme high refractive lenses that keep the optic compact and light. The lens also features an Ultra-Precise Stepping Motor, ensuring focusing that’s three times more precise than with a conventional Stepping Motor. With optical image stabilisation, which keeps things steady when handheld, this is sure to give you pin-sharp shots every time.

tablet instantly, and with MobileLink, you can send multiple images to four devices simultaneously. Wireless connection to a smart device also means you can use Remote Viewfinder Pro, enabling you to control the NX30 remotely but still see the scene you’re capturing on-screen and access manual controls including shutter speed and aperture.

Samsung 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS

Samsung’s second new lens also offers a 16- 50mm zoom range, but its more compact design is ideal for everyday use or when you’re travelling. The Samsung 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS weighs just 111g and has a compact 31mm frame. This lens also features a unique Electro zoom with a see-saw button that lets you simply click to zoom – similar to using a compact camera, but with the image quality of an APS-C sensor. The zooming mechanism uses the same technology as a high-end camcorder, so is ideal for movies as well as stills. Low zooming noise and a Silent Autofocusing mechanism also make for quiet operation, and optical image stabilisation reduces blur from camera movement.
