NX300 20.3MP SMART Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black)

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Camera Very pleased with this camera. Takes very good pictures and appears to have many options (which I have not fully explored at this stage). Some reviews say it does not come with a flash - but mine certainly did. February 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great camera with a few nitpicks that keep it from being all around 5stars Build: like a tank. It is solid, compact, and has enough heft to feel serious. The top is brushed aluminum which adds to the looks and build. The bottom is plastic painted silver but it doesn't really detract from the overall body. This is not a retro design, it is contemporary and even sophisticated. Retro is the "in" word right now, but it isn't accurate. Very responsive and good looking TOUCH screen. Software: easy menus, panoramic stitching, focus peaking, 1/3 ISO selections, 1080 60fps video, face detection autofocus with 'touch to focus and shoot' touchscreen ability, screen is accurate with display of WB and exposure, AF is snappy, there is a lot to love. Problem with the NX300: 1) Price (depending). There are options in DSLRs for the same price or less that easily outperform it, and at this time, there are mirrorless options that outperform it in features and functionality at the current price. This directly affects VALUE. I gave it 4 stars because I managed to find one for an excellent price so my personal value for the camera is high. If not, sadly, I would give it 3 stars. 2) The design went slightly backwards with the change to a 4way controller from the dial on the back of the NX210. Makes changing aperture slower and certainly less of an advantage to a more serious photographer. This change only decreased functionality and speed of use so not a good move. There is a lot to really love about the NX300 and it is probably the most mature feeling camera in the lineup, even over the NX30. Samsung has a really good camera system with the NX that stumbles in some areas/choices but also gives users a more than capable mirrorless option that I would choose again if I had to do it over.
