We've just posted our first set of lab test shots for the Samsung NX100 SLD digital camera, straight from the lab!
Following in the footsteps of the closely related NX5 and NX10 models, the Samsung NX100 aims to better fulfill the promised reduction in body size of an SLD camera. The change comes mostly from a reduction in height, and from the removal of the sculpted handgrip of the previous NX-series models. The NX100 still doesn't challenge the compactness of Sony's NEX-5, but it's certainly among the smaller SLD camera bodies yet announced.
Like its existing NX-series siblings, the Samsung NX100 is based around an APS-C sized, 14.6 megapixel CMOS image sensor. It also retains a 3.0-inch, VGA-resolution AMOLED like that of the NX10. Following the lead of Panasonic's Lumix GF1, as well as both the Olympus E-P2 and E-PL1, the NX100 also adopts a hotshoe-mounted electronic viewfinder that mates into an accessory port just below the shoe.
