Top Customer Reviews
First off, if you want an extensive review of this camera go to cnet, dpreview, etc. That's where I head when doing research before buying a camera. This camera is an upgrade from my NX210 that I purchased last year. On my Amazon review of the NX210 I wanted to give it 4 1/2 stars. I thought that the mediocre focusing system subtracted 1/2 star. After reading the positive reviews of NX300 and noting the several awards it already won I just had to have one. I decided on the white one and wow am I glad I did. It is one fantastic looking device. I was initially contemplating the more compact 20 - 50 mm kit lens but ultimately went with the 18 - 55 mm lens. The latter not only offers a wider focal length, but also features optical internal stabilization. I can definitely notice that the focusing system is an improvement over the NX210. It's the quickest, most accurate focusing camera I've ever experienced. I'm also happy to report that the focusing system is no longer audible during video playback. The articulated touchscreen is a nice upgrade as well. The touchscreen is responsive and makes the camera easier-to-use overall. Otherwise, it takes the same "SLR quality" photos the NX210 takes but with a much higher chance of being in focus. This is the first time I felt comfortable giving a camera five stars and recommending it to family and friends without hesitation.
Excellent image quality thanks to the APS-C sensor and the 18-55mm Zoom lens included.
Excellent controls - among the best in my opinion.
Compact design and good build quality.
Beautiful AMOLED screen.
Fast, reliable Autofocus.
Fairly light, good grip (not the best ever, but good enough), handles well.
8-9 fps shooting speed (very good considering the high resolution images)
1/6000 shutter speed (fast, good for action)
Overall value for the price is superb.
Quick direct video and good video quality
Battery life (get an external charger and some extra batteries)
View screen not as fully adjustable as some (but adequate)
No built-in flash (more compact body, not needed much of the time (e.g. landscapes))
Small, shoe mounted external flash (more adjustable, but less convenient)
Lots of digital image "features" - great if you like them and use them, fluff if not.
My Review of the Samsung NX300
I started my adventures with the Samsung camera line with the inexpensive WB150F model. The wireless features impressed me and the camera itself was reasonably decent as well for the low price. So when I ran across the NX1000 which was then selling for less than 1/2 its original price. I gave it a look. I ended up purchasing one and so was introduced to Samsung's excellent APS-C sensor and lens line (20-50mm, 18-55mm OIS, 20mm and 30mm primes and the superb 16mm wide angle lens among others). The Samsung lenses deliver great results and are relatively low priced for their quality.

The NX300 is my all-time favorite camera because of the quality of the pictures and the ease of access and use of the many features. My favorite features are the one-button panoramas (see user photos) and the in-camera HDR, neither of which I've been able to accomplish easily and/or well with cameras which required merging in post production. I also love the touch display and the RAW format, which I've never had before.
The sharpness and color accuracy are so much better than my past Nikons.
I do mostly landscape photography and dappled sunlight has always been a problem due to washed-out highlights. The SmartRange+ feature corrects a lot of that and if it can't, the HDR can. To do an HDR with my old Nikon, I had to put the camera on a tripod, take a picture, adjust the aperture, take a second, adjut, the a third. Any movement in the pictures ruined it. The NX300 takes its set of HDR pictures at different apertures in a fraction of a second, so movement should not be a problem in any kind of normal circumstances.
I also do a lot of macro photography in the landscape and with my old cameras, had to switch back and forth between macro and normal focus. In the NX300, macro is just part of the normal focus range, so no switching.
I'm surprised that a memory card does not come with the camera since they are so cheap and you cannot use the camera without one. A 32GB Class 10 card is only about $18. So if you are buying this camera and don't have a large, fast card, you probably should add it.Read more ›
What I like about this product
- Compact and light weight as compared to the DSLR cameras with interchangeable lens. The camera body weighs about 12.5 oz and fits easily in a small camera case such as the Case Logic DCB-304 Compact System/Hybrid Camera case.
- nice bright and vivid 3.3" flip-out touch screen which makes it easy to view even under bright light situations. It is also quite easy to navigate the various on-screen functions and photos / video viewing
- nice picture quality supporting upto 25600 ISO and a shutter speed of 1/6000 sec. The 15 - 55 mm lens works well for many photo-shooting situations with a phase-detection focusing system which provides better and faster focusing. The lens also comes with the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) function which is helpful for shooting fast moving objects. The lens's thread diameter is 58 mm in case if you want to purchase filters for it. This package also comes with a lens hood.
- a variety of controls for the more advanced photographers. Some of the features I like included the focusing / exposure / metering modes, bracketing by exposure / white balance, and manual adjustment of the flash's power. The camera also comes with a neat feature called "beauty face" which automatically smoothen the skin tones either in real time or applied after the picture is taken.
- wireless Wi-Fi capability. This is a function which I like very much.Read more ›
