Samsung NX11 interchangeable lens digital camera debuts

Camera uses i-Function lenses

| Cameras News | Posted: Dec 30, 2010 6:06 pm

I have been shooting photos for years now using a DSLR camera. I bought the DSLR just for the faster shutter speeds so I could catch my kids actually in the frame instead of just an elbow or ear. I found out after using the thing for a while that the manual modes a DSLR offers and the ability to change a lens to your needs and situation makes for much better photos. The big downsides to a DSLR camera is that the things are big and bulky, plus they cost a lot.

Over the last year or so there have been a growing number of smaller digital cameras coming to the market that lack the mirror box of a DSLR making them smaller and keep the image quality and interchangeable lenses. They aren't any cheaper than a DSLR typically, but they are easier for some to take with them. The latest of these interchangeable lens cameras to land is the Samsung NX11. This is not a micro four-thirds camera; it has a larger APS-C sensor than the micro four-thirds offerings have.

 

The camera works with the Samsung i-Function lenses that allow all settings to be adjusted from the lens. The rear LCD is a 3-inch AMOLED unit and the camera can record HD resolution video as well. It will be offered with a 20-50mm zoom lens and other lenses will be optional. The sensor in the camera is a 14.6MP unit and the video recording resolution is 720p. Samsung will ship the camera in February for $649.
