Samsung Galaxy Camera Photos, Specs, and Details Leak

Want a phonecamera instead of a cameraphone? It’s something that we were joking around about just months ago, but it might soon become a reality.

A full month late — and right on the heels of Canon’s EOS M announcement — Samsung officially began shipping its entry-level NX1000 mirrorless camera yesterday. The camera, which was supposed to ship sometime in June, comes sporting a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, 3-inch LCD, full 1080p video capability, 8fps continuous shooting, a $700 price tag, and the title of “first compact system camera (CSC) with built-in Wi-Fi” — a title it shares with its more expensive NX brethren.

It may not have been the best day to release a new compact camera, given that Panasonic announced five of them (if you count superzooms), but Samsung powered through anyway, unveiling its new addition to the compact world: the stylish looking MV900F. Unlike most of the compacts we’ve seen coming our way in the past month, this isn’t a technical powerhouse with a superfast lens or a huge sensor. What the MV900F offers is a bunch of cool, if not a little bit random, features that try to entice the everyday user away from their smartphone. Read more…

Samsung EX2F: A Premium Compact Camera with a f/1.4 Lens

As more and more consumers are opting to use their smartphones as their primary camera, manufacturers are moving away from cheapo point-and-shoots and towards beefier compact cameras that offer quality that phones can’t match (yet). Samsung’s new EX2F definitely falls into that category.
