I've received this package and I have been playing around with the camera. Very nice quality pictures that can handle high iso noises pretty well, Video quality is amazing with very fast auto focusing. Even at low light, the focus was amazingly well done. I own Canon 7D and I bought this camera for my wife and she is loving it so far. Lots of fun functions built in camera editor, as well as full touch screen effects are really nice. I highly recommend this camera whoever wants to buy a mirrorless. It even comes with free lightroom4 software!

We didn't want to spend a ton of money on a DSLR, but didn't want to cheap out with another point and shoot. God knows, we have a pile of them from the past 15 years. This was a great alternative to both. The interchangeable lenses are what set this apart from the point and shoot cameras, but retain a lot of the qualities of a consumer DSLR.

Pictures are fantastic, you will not be disappointed. Tons of settings you'll probably never use. Trust the auto setting.

The video can be shaky, especially if you use the stock lens. You'll need an OIS lens to stabilize it to get that professional video feel. Even though the video can be shaky with a non-OIS lens, you get that genuine home video composition in a high definition picture.

The flash is not built-in, but it does come with one.

The wifi works, but isn't very intuitive. I tried pairing with a nexus 7 (2013) tablet to transfer the photos and video. It doesn't always pair... that could use some refining. It might work more seamlessly with a Samsung Galaxy phone or tablet, I happen to have an iPhone 5, which it doesn't work with.

I wholly recommend this camera as your new family camera to capture all those important moments; birthdays, recitals, childbirths, retirements, vacations, trips to the beach, to the lake, to the mountains, camping, a friday night of pizza with the family. It's going to be with you and your family for a long time.

Lastly, I can't stress this enough.... buy a 2nd or even 3rd lens. Whether it be the ultra-wide angle, the ultra-zooms or the OIS lens. These are all high-quality lenses, they will not disappoint, they will enhance your experience.

Aesthetically, it's a beautiful looking device. People will ask you about it.

For me, it was between the Sony Nex6 and the NX300. I had also considered the Sony Nex5-R, but after having a friend upgrade from that to the Nex6, I figured it was the way to go. I ultimately ended up with this camera due to the price point. There are a lot of differences between the cameras, but I will just list what I like and do not like about this camera.

I like this camera for many reasons. First off, the learning curve was small. I've only ever owned point and shoot cams before, so this was definitely a step up. The menus are obvious, and easy to navigate, and it has a mode description function that tells you what each setting does, and in some cases, what its best uses are. Next, the image quality is superb. Even though the kit lens is lightweight and doesn't have the best glass, it really turns out some nice images in RAW quality. The lens, on a good note, is light, and the auto focus is fast and fairly quiet.

Things I don't like about the camera (after 45 days of use) are, the screen is large, but isn't very bright and is hard to see in sunlight. The camera is also missing a viewfinder, which would have been a nice touch to set it apart from the NX2000. The wifi link on the camera requires a lot of back and forth between the app on your device and camera, which is kind of frustrating if the camera dips into power saver mode and drops the connection.

Overall, the camera handles well and has a really awesome aesthetic to it. People comment on the cameras looks all the time, which is kinda sweet. So far, I can't say that I am regretting buying this camera, even though I miss the viewfinder. I think it's definitely better than lugging around a huge DSLR tho. I wouldn't be surprised if the next camera I buy is a mirrorless as well. The technology is only going to get better.

I have had the NX300 for almost a month. I have used it with the 20-50mm lens several times and I like the pictures that come from that lens. I did also purchase a FD lens adapter that I use with many of my old lenses. I have found that I prefer to use my 28mm FD 2.8 and 50mm FD 1.4 prime lenses over the samsung 20-50mm. Even though I lose the auto focus and the ability to have live view from my phone or tablet, I found that the pictures are much better. So if you are looking to use old lenses, this camera works great. As for the build quality of the camera, it is pretty good. Obviously plastic all over, but not cheapy feeling. The camera works very well for the most part. I upgraded the firmware and since then I do get freezes and I have to pull the battery. I also shoot RAW, and sometimes when I take rapid shot pictures it will not save. I use a class 10 45MBps SD card, so I'm not sure of the issue. Video is great with this camera. I really like the 1080p 24fps option combined with the FD lenses. It gives a great cinematic look to the videos. I say buy the camera. Especially if you have old glass that you want to use again.

Amazing Compact System....I've owned DSLRs in the past (multiple Canon) and even a Sony NEX-6, but this camera hands down is amazing. It out performs any DSLR I've ever owned. It's not a full-frame sensor, but instead an APS-C, but it is so great I don't even care. I just picked up the 30mm f2.0 lens and 18-200mm lens and I cannot....I mean I cannot put it down.....The 20-50mm that it comes with is a typical stock lens. It performs well, but I definitely recommend picking up other lenses. I even transfer my images automatically from the camera via Wi-Fi built in the camera directly to my phone....uploading all my photos to my social networks is super easy. Buy this camera...right now! I don't care if you're a professional or just a beginner, this is just amazing!

I recently purchased the Samsung NX300 camera along with the 30mm pancake lens.
All I can say is WOW! This takes the best pictures of any camera that I've ever owned.
Having said that, I have to admit that I've only owned around half a dozen. One of them
was a Sony compact that got very good reviews but took awful pictures. The other was
my Canon Rebel Xti. The pictures are as good as the best Canon shots and I don't have
focusing problems which has plagued the Canon since I first purchased it a few years ago.
So I'm really happy with the purchase. If you want to charge your battery outside of
the camera you will need to purchase an external battery charger. I bought the
Kapaxen Rapid Battery Charger Kit for BP1030 or BP1130 Battery for the Samsung NX-300 on
Amazon for around 13 dollars and it works fine. This camera also comes with a small
flash which attaches to the hot shoe although I ended up buying one of their better flashes
after a month or two.

This is a backup camera and I love the style and retro looks. Excellent pictures and resolution. Comfortable and proper weight for its size.

Love the versatility and flexibility of this camera. Approaching dslr performance and feature set in a small, easily toteable size. Wifi transfer to phone/tablet/pc a plus.

Use My Canon 70D for professional shoots and needed something compact to keep on me at all times.This beauty looks like a 70's rangefinder that is very light, sturdy, dependable and 20MP +++++ It works for me. Brought a filter and now use my Canon lens on this little gem! Love This camera. It's not my Canon but it's one hell of a back up!

I absolutely love this camera. I have a nikon D600 that I used professionally. And let me tell you it's up to par once you get some good glass on it. I would recommend getting a lens adapter. And getting some vintage glass. I prefer nikon because they have kept the same mount and you have more options.
