Samsung Releases GX-10 DSLR Camera And 5 New Lenses

Samsung GX-10 DSLR

On Thursday Samsung launched its 10.2-megapixel GX-10 DSLR camera with a 2.5-inch LCD screen, built-in Optical Picture Stabilization technology (CCD Shift), dust removal function, water-proof and anti-dust coating, one-touch RAW button and continuous shooting at 3 fps.

At the same time, the company also announced the launch of five more lenses for use with the GX-10 and GX-1 series of Samsung’s DSLR cameras. These are: the fish eye lens (10-17mm F3.5-F4.5 ED), an ultra wide zoom lens (12-24mm F4 ED AL), a wide zoom lens (16-45mm F4 ED AL), a fixed focus lens (35mm F2 AL) and a macro lens (Macro 100mm F2.8).

The Samsung GX-10 DSLR camera sports a PentaPrism viewfinder with a high magnification (0.95x) to provide a clearer, wider field of view (95%) for optimum shooting. Samsung said the advanced design features of the GX-10 ensure it is robust enough for taking quality pictures in even wet, sandy or dusty conditions as the camera comes equipped with a special water-proof and anti-dust coating.

“The advanced dust removal function included in the GX-10 also removes potentially problematic dust from the CCD by vibrating it automatically when the camera is booted, resulting in perfect blemish-free pictures with minimum effort on the part of the photographer,” Samsung added.
