We've just received a production-level unit of the new Samsung NX10 SLD digital camera, and have posted our first set of test shots from it straight from the lab.
Samsung's NX format is very similar to Micro Four Thirds in concept, eliminating the mirror box to save weight and size, and using Live View display to frame images. The Samsung NX10 has two displays - a 3.0" AMOLED VGA LCD panel, and a 921,000 dot electronic viewfinder of unspecified size. The image sensor itself is a 14.6 megapixel APS-C CMOS chip, offering ISO sensitivity to a high of 3,200 equivalent. Focusing is also performed on data streamed from the image sensor, with Samsung claiming that the NX10's contrast detection autofocus is "one of the fastest ... in its class on the market". The Samsung NX10 also offers 720p high definition video, a dust reduction system, a built-in popup flash and an external hot shoe. Visit the Samsung NX10 Samples page for the test images we've shot so far (which includes links to select .SRW RAW files), and check back soon for more Samsung NX10 test shots in the coming days!
