posted Thursday, January 2, 2014 at 1:31 PM EDT


Samsung just announced the NX30, a new flagship for its NX-series of mirrorless compact system cameras. Like previous top-of-the-line NX-series models, the Samsung NX30 is styled like a small SLR. It also sports an improved version of the 20.3-megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor seen on several previous NX models.

But much else is new on the NX30. Highlights include a high resolution pull-out, tiltable electronic viewfinder, the improved hybrid autofocus system that debuted on the NX300, a completely redesigned grip, a 3.5mm jack for external microphones, and Samsung's latest image sharing and internet connectivity features.

We've spent some time trying out the latest NX-series flagship, so for the full story read our hands-on preview. (And watch out for more hands-on thoughts, coming shortly!) As for pricing and availability of the NX30, Samsung has yet to make any statement.
