Samsung Rolls Out NX10 Interchangeable Lens System Camera

Samsung NX10 Interchangeable Lens System Camera

Samsung has unveiled the NX10, a new camera that departs from the conventional SLR design by doing away with the mirror so it can have a smaller body, but retaining the ability to change lenses just like DSLRs.

More importantly, it retains the larger APS-C sized image sensor used in most DSLRs, unlike the smaller sensors of the Micro Four Thirds cameras it is competing against like the Panasonic GF1 and the Olympus PEN.

The Samsung NX10 packs 15.1 megapixels (14.6MP effective) and can shoot 720p movies. Backside, it sports a 3-inch AMOLED display screen.

The NX10 continues a trend among camera manufacturers to veer away from the traditional DSLR design towards more compact, mirror-less interchangeable lens system cameras. The NX10 will be on display during the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show, January 7-10, in the Samsung booth #11026 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
