IFA - BERLIN, Germany – September, 7, 2011 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, one of the global leaders in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of the new NX200, a compact system camera that is designed to assist users to deliver professional quality photography.
The NX200 guarantees an easy experience that lets you unleash your creativity to its full effect. It features premium functions such as a 20.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, high speed capture (including 100ms Advanced Auto Focus), wide range ISO (100-12800), HD movie recording, and Samsung’s unique i-Function lens. With high-performance features built into a compact metallic design, with the NX200 you won’t have to choose between style and quality images.
The NX200 is the perfect combination of design and professional performance, delivering high quality imaging in a camera that is compact and easy to use. The camera incorporates a 20.3 Megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor developed in-house by Samsung, helping to ensure high quality images which show details and puts high performance at the fingertips of photographers.
In addition, the camera’s wide range ISO (100-12800, covering seven steps) can capture sharp details and produce natural colours even in low-light environments or when capturing still images of moving objects. To capture movement on video, the NX200 also features 1920x1080/30p (H.264) HD movie recording and Stereo Sound for exciting and vivid videos. All this is incorporated into a compact and sleek body with a premium metal design, light enough to be carried around in a jacket pocket and stylish enough for a user to be proud of.
Samsung’s i-Function 2.0 lenses allow the user to control a range of parameters from the lens without having to take their eye off the shot. The NX200 is fully compatible with the wide range of nine different i-Function lenses which enable toggling between shutter speed, aperture, EV, WB, and ISO quickly and easily through the button and ring on the lens. With the i-Function 2.0 lense on the NX200 users can also control six different Smart Filters and the intelli-Zoom function from the lens whilst in Lens Priority Mode.
One of the key ways in which Samsung’s NX200 stands out is by making it easy for users to realise their own creativity through a range of fun and easy-to-use features and settings. The camera features ten different Smart Filter effects, six of which can be easily accessed through the i-Function lens, allowing the user to capture a uniquely creative image of their object without having to take their eye off it to change the filter. The new NX200 also includes Magic Frame technology, which enables the user to encapsulate their pictures with thirteen different frames, from magazine covers to holiday themes for fun sharing of images with family and friends.
Professional standards made simple
With its Smart Panel, the NX200 makes taking amazing pictures simple and fuss-free, even for first-time users. The high-quality images captured can be viewed in brilliant quality on the 3.0” VGA AMOLED display and intuitive control comes through the camera’s Smart Panel which features a Hot Key, enabling users to jump easily to key functions without the need to scroll through confusing menus to get to their desired shot.
The NX200 enables users to capture their experiences by using exciting new features and Samsung technology. The Panorama function means that users can take lengthened shots of large objects or turn the image into a 3D scene, helping to bring the object to life. To capture the moment for posterity, Samsung has also added the Sound Picture function to the NX200, so that a snippet of sound can be recorded to accompany a still image to enhance the memories in a photograph.
