Samsung Unveils NX200 Compact System Camera with DSLR Sensor

Posted by on Thursday September 1, 2011 | Uncategorized

Samsung unveiled the 20.3-megapixel NX200 this morning, a compact system camera (CSC) that uses interchangeable lenses like a digital SLR but has no internal mirror.

The NX200 is a follow-up to the NX100, which was announced about a year ago. As with the previous model, the NX200 uses an APS-C CMOS sensor that’s the same size as what you’d find in an entry-level DSLR.

Along with a bump up in megapixels from 14.6 to 20.3MP, the NX200 has been redesigned with a smaller, sleeker all-metal body and a more significant hand grip.

According to Samsung, the NX200 also has faster shot-to-shot speed, faster autofocus, and can shoot a maximum of 7 frames per second. ISO range has been expanded (100-12,800) and there’s now full HD recording at 30fps.

The Samsung NX200 has a 3-inch VGA AMOLED screen on back that’s designed to offer better battery life and greater contrast when shooting in bright, outdoor light.

A ship date and officially pricing for the Samsung NX200 have not been announced yet.
