SMART CAMERA NX300
NX300High performance made portable—the on-the-go photographer never had it this good. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 features a brand new 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Hybrid Auto Focus system for delivering detailed images that obliterate the line between professional and enthusiast. And the maximum shutter speed of 1/6000s makes shooting faster than ever before when every second counts.
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 centers 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.

Taking the sensor to the next level
Worthy of professional photographers, but made for the enthusiast, the 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor—now with Phase detection AF—delivers high-quality images and lifelike colors with the highest resolution in its class. It’s also ideal for out-focusing photography, thanks to a sensor that’s the largest used in a mirrorless camera. The sensor, which measures 23.5mm x 15.7mm, collects the most light so you can create beautiful images without noise, even in low-lit situations.
Capture with greater clarity and speed
The hybrid AF (autofocus) system combines Phase detection AF and contrast AF for faster and more accurate autofocusing. Phase detection AF nearly instantaneously determines the distance of your subject, while contrast AF fine-tunes the focus for maximum contrast. Enabled by an incredibly short shutter lag, the hybrid AF System allows you to shoot accurate, sharply detailed images faster.
Capture the moments within a moment
When you’re shooting fast-moving action such as a tennis player stretching for a shot at the net, effortlessly capture the entire sequence with a series of brilliantly clear stills. TheSamsung SMART CAMERA NX300 lets you shoot continuously at an ultra-fast rate of 8.6 frames per second to ensure you get the shot you want. The advanced autofocus system brings crystal clarity to fast-moving subjects, and a short shutter release lag helps you capture the fleeting moment before the subject moves out of frame.
The speed you need for great photography
You have a split second to take the shot your family will be talking about for generations. Take it with the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300, which boasts a shutter speed of 1/6000s, the fastest in its class. With that kind of shutter speed—and the fast autofocus system—you can capture a skater whipping by or a snowboarder in midair, without a hint of motion blur.
Always ready to share your memories
Connect to your world—and to your smart devices. A dedicated Direct Link hot key lets you quickly and wirelessly send images to a mobile phone, tablet, PC or Smart HDTV—directly from your camera. It’s perfect for sharing moments with friends, family and your favorite social networks. The Samsung Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 also includes Dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) support so you can connect faster and with more stability to wireless networks around you.
Everything about the camera is faster, including the interface
The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 offers multiple options, even for navigating the menu on the 3.31"(84.0mm) WVGA screen. The intuitive Hybrid Touch User Interface combines a 5-way button with a touchscreen so you can quickly select menu options to apply effects, share images, input text and more. Whether you’re tapping the screen or moving the cursor around, everything you do is easier and faster.
Designed to capture attention with retro modern style
Taking its cues from the simplicity of vintage camera design and from state-of-the-art innovation, the design of the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 impresses with elegant, flowing lines and a luxuriously textured feel. It’s crafted from sturdy metal, yet is compact and lightweight for easy on-the-go shooting. Sharp edging presents a sleek silhouette when viewed from above, while an ergonomic design ensures a safe and steady grip.
Get a different view on life
See—and capture—the world differently. The 3.31"(84.0mm) AMOLED Tilt Display flips up 90º and down 45º. So now you can easily frame and capture a low-angle image without having to awkwardly contort your body or lie on the ground. You can also hold the camera over a crowd for a high-angle shot and see exactly what you’re getting. Shooting from a variety of angles can also make for more exciting photo albums.
A powerful engine for perfect shooting
Powered by Samsung’s next-generation DSP imaging engine, the DRIMe IV image processor accurately captures the special moments in your life. It’s faster than its predecessor for improved overall performance, including superior color reproduction and noise reduction. Whether you’re shooting 2D or 3D, this powerful engine ensures you’ll treasure your memories—with enhanced Full HD movie quality—for the rest of your life.
Add pop to your movies and stills
Make vacation stills and videos pop off the screen with True 3D Creator. Featuring the world’s first single lens system for capturing 2D and 3D images, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 is also the only interchangeable-lens camera that lets you shoot stills and movies in 3D via Samsung 45mm 2D/3D lens. When you’re done shooting, let your friends back home feel as if they were there with you, by showing off your stunningly vivid adventures on a compatible 3D HDTV.
*45mm 2D/3D Lens Kit only
Discover the true beauty of Full HD video
The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 may not look like a camcorder, but it capably captures Full HD 1080/60P video. With uncompromising performance bolstered by an 18-200mm lens and wide zoom capability, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 delivers smooth, professional-looking videos that play well on your HDTV. When you’re ready for showtime, an HDMI interface lets you transmit your vision straight to the big screen.
Wide Range ISO (100~25600)
Capturing natural-looking images indoors, or outside at night, can require a higher ISO than most cameras allow. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 lets you shoot up to ISO 25600 making it twice as sensitive to light as the previous model—so you can snap high-speed photos with minimal noise and blurring, even in low light.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 is the perfect match with the NX300 to bring out all the details for crisp professional looking photos. Organize photos by the location they were taken with GPS tagging. View and make adjustments to video clips, turn them into still images, or trim and edit according to your needs.
