High performance made portable—the on-the-go photographer never had it this good. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 features a new, ultra-sensitive 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor and an advanced hybrid autofocus system for delivering detailed images that obliterate the line between professional and enthusiast. And thanks to 1/6000 shutter speed, you can keep up with the action—any action—and precisely capture a fast-paced moment you would otherwise miss.
Advanced 20.3M APS-C CMOS Sensor
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.
Advanced Hybrid AF System
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.
8.6fps Continuous Shooting
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. The Samsung 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.
1/6000 sec Shutter Speed
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 1/6000 sec, 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.
Smart Camera 2.0 (Dual Band Wi-Fi)
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 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.
Hybrid UI (Touch & 5 Way Key) Variation
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.
Retro Modern Design
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.
3.31"(84.0mm) AMOLED Tilt Display
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.

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.
