Launched at CES 2010, Samsung’s NX10 marks the introduction of the ‘next generation’ of camera. A mirror-less interchangeable lens digital camera, the NX10 offers the performance and image quality of a DSLR and the portability and ease‑of-use of a compact point-and-shoot. However, unlike other mirror-less interchangeable lens systems on the market today, the Samsung NX10 is the first to utilize an APS-C sized image sensor (CMOS type), providing a larger surface area to gather light and produce higher-quality images. The NX10 utilizes an ultra‑precise Electronic Viewfinder (EVF) and also offers a high-resolution, 3.0” AMOLED display. Consumers will also benefit from the NX10’s fast, DSLR-like auto-focusing speed as well as the ability to record HD video in addition to professional quality digital stills.

Like a DSLR, the NX10 offers users the flexibility of interchangeable lenses and optical image stabilization (lens shift) which drastically enhances their creativity by giving them additional options for optics. At launch, three Samsung NX lenses will be made available to consumers, including a 30mm fixed focus pancake lens, an 18-55mm OIS, and a 50-200mm OIS telephoto.
