Design-wise, however, is where the NX100 steps apart. Samsung says that has been “inspired by the simple shape of dew forming on a leaf,” but if that just sounds like jargon to you, know that this looks like it’ll be one of the most portable mirror-less interchangeable lens cameras (MILC) out there.
One of the more interesting features is a new one called “i-Function” which allows photographers to control the camera just by using the lens. While something that is lens specific, this method of controlling the camera is a little like zooming or focusing on your lens, except it can also control things like shutter speed, aperture, and even low light sensitivity.
There’s also 720p HD video capture, low-light sensitivity up to ISO 6400, a 3-inch AMOLED screen, and a whole bunch of options that should make photography easier and more fun.
Samsung tells us that it should hit Australia in October for $899 RRP, and you’ll get a choice of lenses with either a thin 20mm wide angle lens or a walkaround 20-50mm zoom lens.
