Achieve professional-quality images no matter who you are. The NX11 is fully compatible with Samsung’s innovative i-Function lens, which means that the camera can be easily controlled without having to understand all the complex camera settings. The user interface makes it all easy to understand, whether you’re a novice or a professional. NX11 comes with a load of new features, including Panorama mode, Smart Filter, Sound Picture and compatibility with GPS module (optional). With its super large APS-C size sensor and fast speed AF (Auto Focus), NX11 lets you photograph that perfect shot in breathtaking detail.

Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

3" AMOLED display provides clear photo information anytime, anywhere
AMOLED (Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode) is thinner, brighter and faster in response time than a LCD screen. AMOLED is 3,000 times faster in its response rate than LCD, expresses pictures with bright colours evenly lit with no backlighting, and allows us to view the display at any angle or lighting conditions, even in bright sunlight. In addition, its dynamic 10,000:1 contrast ratio provides clearer images in true colours.

Fast AF that captures life in an instant

Fast AF that captures life in an instant
Innovatively designed, the Samsung NX11 is the perfect size and weight with an improved ergonomic grip. Without a mirror box and pentaprism, it’s small and light enough to carry around everywhere you go. Its quick and accurate contrast AF function lets you capture fleeting moments instantly before they pass you by. Now you can capture even the most spontaneous moments in astonishing detail, and turn unexpected, had-to-be-there moments into memories of a lifetime.
Lens Priority Mode (lens recognition setting)

Lens Priority Mode (lens recognition setting)

Under the Lens Priority Mode, the camera recognises the attached lens and provides optimised settings for that particular lens. When the lens is changed, the settings automatically readjust for optimal shooting. With NX’s revolutionary lens technology, there is no need to worry about how to set your camera. Just push the i-Function button and rotate the lens, and let the camera do the rest.

What you see is what you get

What you see is what you get
Unlike optical viewfinder which only shows images reflected from the mirror with limited information, electronic viewfinder of Samsung NX11 can convey additional OSD (on-screen display) information on screen. Since camera settings can be applied to the preview image instantly, what you see in the electronic viewfinder will be identical to the picture you take.
HD Movie Recording

Internal flash

Internal flash

Leave the external flash and light meter at home. The Samsung NX11 comes with a built-in flash that pops up to help you quickly capture life’s most spontaneous moments. What’s more, Auto TTL mode automatically adjusts the brightness of the light, ensuring you get the perfect picture in a flash.
Upgraded mode dial

Upgraded mode dial

Conveniently positioned under your right thumb, the upgraded mode dial offers immediate access to manual and semi-manual settings. It also lets you create amazing landscape scenes through a one press-and-sweep panorama mode, and record the sounds of the moment with Sound Picture. There’s Lens Priority Mode too, which automatically selects the best scene option for the lens being used. It’s never been this easy to get to the perfect setting.
