Samsung’s NX Series, Worlds First Hybrid Camera?
This afternoon Samsung announced the NX Series, their latest “bridge”. Granted we’re still missing some basic info on the new NS Series but it’s clear Samsung’s goal is to revolutionize the overall Bridge concept and bring REAL DLSR image quality in a point and shoot like body. Like conventional DSLRs, the NX Series utilizes an APS C sized image sensor providing a much larger surface area to gather light and produce higher-quality images than comparable digital camera systems.
On the other hand the NX Series doesn’t feature a mirror box but employs an ultra-precise Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). The use of an EVF allows Samsung engineers to significantly reduce the size and weight of this new system by decreasing the distance between the lens and image sensor (flange back) by approximately 60% compared to traditional DSLRs. In addition to utilizing the EVF, consumers can also take advantage of the camera’s Live View functionality to frame their shots on the NX Series’ high resolution screen.
We hope to know more about this NX Series as soon as the PMA kick off.
