Samsung has announced the launch of selfie-focussed NX3000 smart camera which blends retro styling, beefier specs, and improved connectivity.
The NX3000 Smart-Camera is designed with metal and textured tone body which furnishes a decent-professional look. In the inside the camera comes with a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS Sensor that has ISO of up to 25,600, 1/4000 shutter speed and 5 frames per second continuous shooting. The connectivity options include Wi-Fi and NFC including Tag & Go integration. This enables features like Remote Viewfinder Pro, Photo Beam, and Mobile Link.
The interesting aspect of the camera is its “focus on selfies.” It has a 3-inch flip-up display that’s viewable from the front along with a new feature called “Wink Shot”. In that feature you have to point the camera at yourself and your face framed and then simply wink at the camera to have it capture a selfie for you. There is no more fumbling around for the shutter button while grasping the camera body backwards.
The NX3000 will be available in White, Black and Brown colors and will be bundled with Samsungs new compact 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS Lens.
