Image Quality at the Core
High quality images with rich color are guaranteed with the advanced 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor. Delivering shots which are bursting with sharp detail and intense colors, the large sensor is ideal for creating rich images with dramatic foreground and background blur, providing professional quality imaging that ignites the visual senses. Featuring the Samsung NX AF System II that boasts fast and accurate auto focusing, this new model ensures all moments, including fast-moving scenes and subjects, that make up the beauty of everyday life will never be missed.
Capturing short-lived, fast-paced moments in perfect clarity is achievable with the NX30’s exceptionally fast 1/8000 sec Shutter Speed and the 9 frame per seconds (FPS) Continuous Shooting function. These features help to further break down the action and capture movement beyond what the eye can see so that each split second can be appreciated.
The NX30 makes it easier than ever to discover a new perspective with a Tiltable Electronic Viewfinder (XGA, 2,359k-dot resolution). Whether crowds are obstructing the shot or a more creative angle is desired, the 80 degree tilt means that different viewpoints are simple to achieve. With the ability to move from side to side up to 180 degrees, and upward and downward up to 270 degrees, the NX30’s 76.7mm (3.0-inch) Super AMOLED Swivel and Touch Display offers flexible angles which are especially useful for self-shooting, whether for stills or video capture.
Smart Connectivity, Tag & Go
Building on the successes of Samsung Electronics’ market leading SMART CAMERA technology, the NX30’s NFC and Wi-Fi capabilities offer the next-generation of connectivity. It is now easier than ever to take advantage of a host of intuitive sharing features. The ‘Tag & Go’ function lets users tap and share memories instantly and easily, pairing the NX30 with NFC enabled smartphones and tablets.
The Photo Beam feature allows the transfer an image or video to a smartphone or tablet by simply touching the two devices together with no other configuration needed. MobileLink lets users select multiple images to send to four distinct smart devices at one time – everyone can treasure photos, without the need to take repetitive shots on each individual device. Dropbox, the popular web storage service is pre-loaded on the NX30 in selected regions – making it the first camera-specific device to offer direct-to-Dropbox uploading. Additionally, users of the NX30, in select regions, can upload directly to Flickr, the full resolution photo sharing site – another first in a camera-specific device. Using the advanced connected features of the NX30, images can be uploaded automatically so that snap happy photographers will not need to be concerned with filling up their memory.
Experience Life from all Angles
The NX30 includes the sophisticated next-generation DRIMeIV Image Processor and a powerful DSP imaging engine that brings an unmatched shooting experience and Full HD 1080/60p movie capabilities. The high light sensitivity of the NX30, with a range from ISO100-25600, produces stunning images even in low light conditions and with OIS Duo technology, steady shots for better movie recording are guaranteed, even while on the move. The innovative technology provided by the DRIMeIV Image Processor also enables the 3D capture of scenes and subjects via the Samsung 45mm F1.8 2D/3D lens, letting memories live on through lifelike 3D images and videos displayed on compatible 3D devices. The introduction of OLED Color to the NX30 records the ultimate contrast and real colors, to make it possible for you capture landscapes that are rich and portraits with natural tones.
The NX30 is the ideal solution for movie makers searching for a compact yet high performing camera. In addition to Full HD Video Stereo Recording, the NX30 supports a standard 3.5mm microphone input for high quality audio capture while shooting movies. In addition, the input level can be manually adjusted to ensure optimal audio quality. Moreover the NX30 is also perfect for advanced video enthusiasts because of its HDMI live streaming with Full HD 30p output that makes it easy to connect with a large screen, recorder, and other HDMI devices.

The new powerful TTL external flash with a Guide Number of 58 makes it simple to capture perfect shots, allowing light to travel further and wider. The high speed flash sync mode allows for flash with shutter speeds faster than 1/200th of a second, ideal for brightly lit scenes with selective depth of field.
