three SMART compact system cameras (CSC) with built-in Wi-Fi ? the eye
catching NX1000, the versatile NX210 and the top-of-the-line NX20.
With SMART features, the NX1000, NX210 and NX20 can connect to

The sleek and compact NX1000 will be available in June in white, black
and pink at an MSRP of $699.99.
"With the expansion of the NX family, Samsung reinforces its
commitment to connected creativity. Photography, at its core, is as
much about sharing a special moment, as it is about capturing a
stunning image and the new NX Series delivers both without
compromise," said Reid Sullivan, Senior Vice President of Digital
Imaging, Samsung Electronics America. "Whether for professionals
emailing photos on assignment, or a family sharing a truly unique
memory, there is an NX Series camera ready to deliver."
Channeling Samsung's premium NX image quality, the NX1000, NX210 and
NX20 cameras all feature a stunning design and a professional-grade
20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor. Ensuring the cameras benefit from
Samsung's ecosystem of imaging products, they are also compatible with
Samsung's unique i-Function 2.0 system. This innovative system enables
users to control camera settings using the lens only, without having
to take focus off the subject. New i-Function features include a
digital crop and zoom, which allows users to focus on the most
important parts of an image and crop away distracting background
elements, plus the ability to add custom functions.
Shoot SMART with Samsung NX
Coupled with the latest SMART features, the integration of Wi-Fi in
the new NX models enables users to instantly upload images and video
to social networking sites like Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket and
YouTube, to the cloud with Microsoft® Sky Drive®, or even email them
directly from the camera at the touch of a button.
Further extending the benefits of Samsung's SMART features, the NX20,
NX210 and NX1000 are compatible with Samsung's Remote Viewfinder app,
which when loaded from Google Play (formerly the Android Marketplace)
onto a supported GALAXY smartphone or tablet, allows users to control
settings and even take the picture from up to 30 feet away. With
Samsung's MobileLink app, users can easily transfer and display images
on Samsung smartphones, tablets, or Smart TVs ? turning a variety of
popular devices into instant photo frames.
In addition, AllShare and the TV Link application let the new NX
models connect directly to a DLNA-compatible TV to show off those
amazing images on the big screen, while PC Backup can store photos on
a PC without fumbling with cables.
All-new, Extremely Approachable: The NX1000
As an introduction to CSC photography, the NX1000 combines the imaging
power of a professional camera with the portability of a

compact form-factor suitable for a small bag and a night out on the
town. Bundled with an all-purpose 20-50mm lens and external flash, the
NX1000 offers shutterbugs a versatile system that can help improve
their photography skills, while also capturing high-quality images.
The Samsung NX1000 features a large, bright 3.0-inch LCD screen for

2.0 take the guess work out of photo-taking. A dedicated Smart Link
Hot Key on the top of the camera makes sharing photos via Wi-Fi as
easy as pressing a button for instant sharing.

all-metal premium-quality body for added durability.
The new NX210 also boasts high speed capture with a 1/8000 shutter and

NX20 offers comfortable ergonomics and a convenient 3.0-inch swivel
Super AMOLED screen for composing in a variety of conditions and at
any angle. Additionally, the NX20 incorporates an SVGA Electronic
Viewfinder (EVF) for framing and composing images. The EVF also
includes a proximity sensor to detect when a user is away from the
viewing area and shuts the screen off to conserve battery life.
Fitting for more advanced users, the NX20 touts a lightning-quick
shutter speed, allowing users to capture images at up to 1/8000 of a
second. Continuous shooting also adds to the camera's photo prowess,
as the NX20 can shoot up to 8 frames per second. Lastly, an electronic
level feature helps compose images and allows users to perfectly
center and adjust a tripod-mounted or handheld shot.
Creative Control at Your Fingertips
Creating artistic expressions with photography is now available for
all users with minimal effort. Samsung's Smart Auto setting analyzes,
identifies and automatically selects the most appropriate of its scene
modes to provide users with optimal results. From a brilliant
fireworks display to a dimly-lit party environment, scene detection
technology identifies the shooting conditions and automatically
adjusts the settings to help achieve standout images. For users
seeking more control, the Smart Panel allows them to explore their own
photographic skills with Full Manual Control settings for aperture,
shutter speed, flash intensity and more.
All three NX models feature Samsung's ten exclusive Smart Filters and
a new Selective Color function, which allows users to isolate a single
color in an image for a dramatic effect. Additionally, the NX20, NX210
