Samsung officially unwrap NX
Ahead of CES, Samsung has announced the final specification of the DSLR-like NX. Following in the footsteps of the Micro FourThirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic, the NX dispenses with the usual reflex mirror and pentaprism (in favour of an EVF), allowing for a much smaller and lighter body.
Unlike rivals though the Samsung NX is the first of its type to feature a APS-C size sensor - much larger than Pens' and little Lumix cameras, so we can expect perhaps to see improved high-ISO performance over those models.
The only real downside to this is that the NX lenses will have to have a larger image circle to cover the larger sensor, so they won't be as compact as the mFT optics. All the same the NX is is a welcome addition to the range cameras available.
