Image Description

Shoot fast. Share faster

Capture and share life’s fastest moments in perfect detail with the Wi-Fi ready Samsung SMART CAMERA NX300. High performance made portable — the on-the-go photographer never had it this good. The 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 its 1/6000 shutter speed, you can keep up with the action — any action — and precisely capture a fast-paced moment you would otherwise miss.

Image Description

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.

Image Description

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.

Image Description

Capture the Moments Within a Moment

When you’re shooting fast-moving action, you’ll effortlessly capture the entire sequence with a series of brilliantly clear stills. The 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 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 sprinter running by, without a hint of motion blur.

Image Description

Get a different view on life

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.
