Mirrorless Android! Samsung’s Going Nuts With This Smart Camera Thing.

With the big boys (Canon, Nikon, Sony) and even the medium boys (Olympus, Panasonic, Fuji) playing safe, the digital camera world has been quite boring since the full-frame race, the megapixel race, and clean-ISO-at-6400 race have fizzled.

Thank goodness for Samsung’s craziness the past 12 months in keeping the digital camera news exciting — and here’s another one!

Android Mirrorless Galaxy Camera NX

The rumours early this year was there will be a replacement for the Samsung Galaxy Camera (see review), meaning, it’ll be a point-and-shoot, possibly with more advanced optics and sensors. Turns out, the Galaxy Camera NX is a different beast altogether.

Techtastic and HardwareZone SG report the following specifications.

  • 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor
  • Full HD 1080p video recording
  • ISO up to 25,600
  • 4.3-inch, 960 x 540-pixel touchscreen
  • Optical viewfinder, popup flash

That’s a huge screen for those uninitiated with the current Galaxy Camera. With a larger body shell, this’ll even feel bigger than ever. I hope they have the battery technology to keep up with all the screen requirements and processing power.

Expect an announcement on the 20th of June 2013.
