Samsung NX300 Reviews

Imaging-resource reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“the main benefit of the DRIMe IV processor is that it allows the camera to shoot in full 1080p at both 60 fps and 30 fps — along with both 2D and 3D stills and video with Samsung’s new 45mm 2D/3D lens — it seemed quicker on the draw on all fronts. Also zippy, the camera’s new Hybrid Auto Focus system merges a 257-point Contrast AF with a 105-point Phase Detection AF.”

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The Samsung NX300 is an welcome refresh to the Samsung NX range, with an impressive 3.31 inch touch screen (the largest on any mirrorless camera), and a good range of Wi-Fi features built in. Image quality is impressive with better results than the previous model, the NX210, thanks to improved noise performance, and excellent levels of detail.”

Digitaltrends reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“This would be a great next-step camera for someone who wants high-quality stills and solid videos from an interchangeable lens camera with a large sensor. A state-of-the-art Wi-Fi implementation makes it that more attractive.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMAG reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The Samsung NX300 is an impressive mirrorless camera. It’s the best NX body that we’ve tested to date, and is supported by a lens system with some impressively sharp optics. Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to get your images on the Internet right after you’ve shot them, and serious shutterbugs can tinker with Raw files using the included Adobe Lightroom software to perfect each and every shot.”

CNET reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The fold-out screen immediately makes this a more tempting proposition than those that came before it, while its lightnin-fast reactions and effective focusing system give you the best chance of accurately snapping your subject, however quickly it’s moving. Low light performance is good and the expanding lens line-up makes for a versatile platform all round.”

Rating: ★★★★½

PCPro reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“For handheld shots, sensitivity stretches to ISO 25600, with compensation of three stops in either direction in 1/3EV increments. Low-light performance is good, with grain holding off as far as ISO 800, and remaining light even up to ISO 3200.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Digitaltrends reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The camera is well-built and feels solid and comfortable in the hands, although it’s definitely a two-handed operation when used with a larger, heavier lens attached. The touchscreen is fairly responsive”

T3 reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The new sensor 20.3 Megapixel APS-CMOS sensor is an improvement on the NX210, and the NX300 also features a new hybrid auto focus (AF) system with both phase and contrast detection. The new snapper also offers up a 1/6000 sec shutter speed and an improved 8.6fps burst mode.”

ITPortal reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The lens is sharp and with the handy i-Function feature can act as a central control for each of your most frequently tweaked settings. The scene modes are easy to use and produce good results. Apart from the barrel distortion on RAW files, it’s difficult to find anything to dislike.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Pocket-lint reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“there’s a large sensor, top notch low light performance, and of course the bundled Lightroom software. The new lens priority mode should prove a fillip to beginners as they strive to achieve more artistic results, and for everyone else there’s the touch interface, larger fold-out screen, iFunction system, versatile Wi-Fi, the list goes on (and on and on).”

Expertreviews reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“This lens can shoot in 3D for both still and video photography, and can also be used as a regular 2D prime lens. WE checked out the 3D effect today and it looked pretty impressive, both in video and stills.”

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Samsung NX300 and writes;
“The specs are otherwise basically an incremental upgrade over the NX210, with 8.6fps continuous shooting (vs. the NX210’s 8fps), a slightly larger 3.3-inch AMOLED screen (vs. the NX210’s 3-inch), and an ISO range that tops out at 25600 instead of 12800.”
