Samsung’s Jelly Bean-powered Galaxy NX DSLR gets UK pricing (not cheap)
Ever looked at your compact interchangeable lens camera and thought “I know what this needs. It needs built-in 3G/4G support, a quad-core chip and run on the latest Android OS”? Well, you’re in luck and, if you live in the UK, you can buy one now – make sure you’ve saved up though.
If you’re UK-based and have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the new Samsung Galaxy NX camera you’ll be pleased to know that it has landed, albeit with a rather hefty price tag.
The Samsung Galaxy NX is the world’s first camera system to be equipped with 3G/4G LTE and Wi-Fi support, as well as sporting interchangeable lenses.
The Samsung Galaxy NX runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and has been designed to provide an easy way to share professional quality images anywhere at any time. Great for snappers working out in the field.
Other features of the Samsung Galaxy NX camera include a monster 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and Samsung’s DRIMe IV Image Signal Processor. The NX is tailored for low light photography thanks to that large CMOS image chip. All of that is pushed through a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
The NX is capable of 8.6fps with a 1/6000 shutter speed. There’s 16GB of built-in storage for what you’ve shot – at least you’ll have the option to squirt your exclusives back to the office or on to your site within moments.
Samsung explains a little more about its features: “The Samsung Galaxy NX has Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus –which uses both phase and contrast detection methods. Phase Detection for fast initial focus and Contrast AF for fine tuning the detail. The result is reliable focus accuracy and super-short lag times. For sports and action fans there is a maximum shutter speed of 1/6000 sec and a maximum frame rate of 8.6 frames per second.”
The Samsung Galaxy NX is now available to purchase from UK retailers such as Jessops and Wex Photography for… wait for it…. £1,299.
