SMART CAMERA NX300 High performance made portable—the on-the-go photographer never had it this good. The Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 features a new, ultra-sensitive 20,3 MP 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 1/6.000 shutter speed, you can keep up with the action—any action—and precisely capture a fast-paced moment you would otherwise miss.

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 disposal 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.



  • Fast and powerful, the Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300 allows you to quickly and perfectly capture spontaneous, even magical, moments throughout your day

Taking the sensor to the next level

Advanced 20,3 M APS-C CMOS Sensor Worthy of professional photographers, but made for the enthusiast, the 20,3 MP 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 23,5 mm x 15,7 mm, collects the most light so you can create beautiful images without noise, even in low-lit situations.

Capture with greater clarity and speed

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.

Capture the moments within a moment

8,6 fps 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. 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.

Everything about the camera is faster, including the interface
