Samsung announces the NX2000
Samsung expands award winning NX range with addition of the NX2000
London, UK – May 1, 2013 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd today announced a new addition to its award-winning NX family, with the launch of the NX2000. A stylish, slim compact system camera (CSC), the NX2000 combines professional results with SMART technology. Photos and movies can be captured easily, and immediately shared with friends and family.
Nick Porter, Head of Digital Imaging, UK and Ireland said: "The NX range combines quality photography with the ability to share amazing photos simply and quickly. Samsung is constantly innovating through technology and the NX2000 builds upon the success of existing NX products, offering our customers a unique and stylish camera which takes incredible pictures".
Impressive Photos Made Easy
The large 20.3MP ASP-C CMOS Sensor in the NX2000 produces extremely sharp and highly detailed images, even in low light conditions. Designed to continuously deliver high quality images, the NX2000's capabilities are boosted by its DRIMe IV engine which works to reduce noise, improve speed and enable superior color reproduction.
With 8fps of fast continuous shooting, the NX2000 ensures that no moment is missed. Whether the subject is quickly moving or the photographer is on the run, the 1/4000th second top shutter speed makes taking clear, blur free images easy. The wide ISO range (100 to 25600) helps to deliver images that are beautifully balanced, regardless of the light conditions.
Take Control of Your Images
Ease of use is intrinsic to the NX2000 and the large 3.7-inch WVGA Full Touch Screen provides an intuitive navigation tool to access a range of features. Slim and stylish, the bright screen is simple and quick to use, making it easier than ever to control all aspects of the camera. SMART mode provides even more options to aid you in taking the perfect shot, offering 14 different scene modes, and a selection of settings which reflect your shooting environment and needs. Users can take photos of fast-moving subjects, such as a child running with Action Freeze or capture everyone's "good side" with Best Face, which takes five consecutive photos and lets the user select the best facial expression of each person in the picture.
With a choice of 12 interchangeable lenses, aspiring photographers have improved control over the images they shoot with the NX2000. From ultra-compact pancake lenses and versatile zooms, to a premium portrait lens and a macro lens, the wide lens selection only enhances the photographic experience. Samsung's innovative i-Function system allows users to further unleash their creativity by controlling various settings with the lens, such as the aperture or shutter speed.
Breathing life in to images, the 3D Still and Movie Recording capabilities of the NX2000, when coupled with Samsung's 45mm 2D/3D lens (sold separately), bring an added element of realism to photos and videos, which can be replayed and enjoyed on compatible 3D TVs. Full HD Video Recording ensures that movies retain the same level of detail, colour and quality as stills, so users can view their story just the way it happened.
Connect Your World
Enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity offers a host of functions which make it easy to share and store images directly from the camera. The Samsung SMART CAMERA App, available on both Android and iOS platforms, provides a streamlined way of linking smart devices, ensuring that treasured memories are stored without fuss. AutoShare sends photos, as they are taken, directly from the NX2000 to a smartphone or tablet, via a direct Wi-Fi connection. Special memories can be shared instantaneously from the smartphone when users aren't connected to an access point, and images are also instantly backed up for those who are constantly on the go and don't have time to worry about storage.
The integrated Near Field Communication (NFC) technology seamlessly links the NX2000 to many NFC-enabled Android smartphones and tablets. Simply tap the camera with the smart device and NFC immediately launches the Samsung SMART Camera App and automatically pairs the device via a direct Wi-Fi connection. Additionally, users can sync their favorite social website, such as Facebook, to the dedicated Direct Link hot key, for menu-free simplified sharing with the touch of one button.
True to its commitment to capturing professional quality images, the NX2000 also includes Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4, bolstering its offering to advanced photographers. With an array of tools, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is the essential photography workflow application allowing photography enthusiasts and professionals to enhance, organize and share photos.
The NX2000 will be available in White, Black and Pink.
