Outstanding Quality and Speed
High quality images with rich color are guaranteed with the advanced 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor. Delivering shots which are bursting with sharp detail and intense colors, the large sensor is ideal for creating rich images with dramatic foreground and background blur, providing professional quality imaging that ignites the visual senses. Featuring the Samsung NX AF System II thatboasts fast and accurate auto focusing, this new model ensures all moments, including fast-moving scenes and subjects, that make up the beauty of everyday life will never be missed.
Capturing short-lived, fast-paced moments in perfect clarity is achievable with the NX30’s exceptionally fast 1/8000 sec Shutter Speed and the 9 frame per seconds (FPS) Continuous Shooting function. These features help to further break down the action and capture movement beyond what the eye can see so that each split second can be appreciated.
Tiltable Electronic Viewfinder (XGA, 2,359K-dot resolution) in the NX30 makes it easier than ever to discover a new perspective. Whether crowds are obstructing the shot or a more creative angle is desired, the 80 degree tilt means that different viewpoints are simple to achieve. With the ability to move from side to side up to 180 degrees, and upward and downward up to 270 degrees, the NX30’s 76.7mm (3.0-inch) Super AMOLED Swivel and Touch Display offers flexible angles which are especially useful for self-shooting, whether for stills or video capture.
