Featuring a top shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second, along with a quick autofocus system, the NX30 enables you to capture movements that can't be seen by the naked eye. You can shoot continuously at 9 frames per second (FPS) for brilliant, clear stills of fast-moving action.
Frame Low-Angle Shots with AMOLED Swivel Display
On the back of the NX30 is a brilliant 3-inch AMOLED swivel and touch display that offers vibrant colors, exceptional contrasts, and virtually blur-free motion clarity. The swivel display flips up and down 270 degrees and pivots 180 degrees horizontally.
Wi-Fi Connectivity for Easy Sharing

You can also email files to friends and family members or use the Group Share function, which allows you to send images to up to four people simultaneously. The camera also comes with 2 GB of free Dropbox online storage or 50 GB if you also own a GALAXY smartphone.
Full HD Video Recording with HDMI Output for Playback
With the NX30, you can not only shoot photos, but you can also take 1080p Full HD videos. The Smart Range+ feature automatically gives tonal detail a boost, resulting in brighter shadows and darker highlights. Use the HDMI interface to play your video back on an HDTV.
Additionally, when you combine the camera with a 3D lens (sold separately), you get true 3D photos and videos (3D TV system required to view in 3D).
Photo Beam to Share Photos with One Touch
Like other Samsung devices, the NX30 features Photo Beam technology, which makes it a snap to share photos. Simply tap the camera on any NFC-compatible smartphone to automatically share whichever image you're currently viewing.
Save Photos in Real Time with AutoShare
With Samsung's AutoShare feature, you can send photos instantly to an NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet--just as you're shooting them--over a Wi-Fi connection. This makes it easy to back up photos and share them wherever you are.
Remote ViewFinder Pro
When you connect the camera to select smartphones, you can use the Remote ViewFinder Pro app to turn your phone into a viewfinder. A SMART Panel allows you to adjust camera settings, including shutter speed, Iris, exposure control, ISO, and white balance--all wirelessly from the screen of your smartphone. This feature also lets you GPS-tag your photos.
Send Files Using Mobile Link, Even Without Wi-Fi
Based on NFC technology, Samsung's Mobile Link app lets you select and send photos or albums to a designated smartphone or tablet, even when you're away from a Wi-Fi hotspot, and without having to send the photos as a text message or an email. The app also lets you manage photos on your smartphone and save the changes automatically to the camera.
Transfer Files with PC Auto Backup
Saving photos, video clips, and more to your computer is easy with the NX30. Just select the PC Auto Backup function, and the camera will wirelessly transfer all of the files on the camera to your PC or Mac.
Samsung Link to Connect with Other Devices

Powerful Image Processing with DRIMe IV
Powered by Samsung's next-generation DSP imaging engine, the DRIMe IV image processor delivers superior color reproduction and noise reduction whether you're shooting in 2D or 3D.
Wide ISO Range for Clear Low-Light Shots
Well suited for capturing natural-looking images indoors or outside at night, the NX30 lets you shoot up to ISO 25600, making it twice as sensitive to light as the previous model of this camera. As a result, you can snap high-speed photos with minimal noise and blurring, even in low-light conditions.
i-Function System for Photo Adjustments
Using this camera's i-Function control, you can quickly and intuitively adjust the aperture, shutter speed, EV, and ISO range with a single button and a value ring on the lens. i-Function also lets you program existing buttons with frequently used settings and set up shortcut keys.
Edit Files with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
An ideal companion for the NX30, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 allows you to bring out all the details in photos, resulting in crisp, professional-looking shots. This software lets you organize photos by location with GPS tagging. You can also view and make adjustments to video clips, turn them into still images, or trim and edit them according to your needs.

Top customer reviews
These new mirrorless, interchangeable lens cameras are "outside" the box and many devotees scoff at them but the quality is excellent. Perhaps if I worked for National Geographic there might be a problem but for the enthusiast who wants good quality with some ease of use I can recommend the NX30. I haven't worked much with the wi-if feature but can certainly see the potential. And I love the iFN button feature on the lenses. Click that button on and you can view (and change) the aperture, ISO, WB and exposure compensation without ever looking away from the screen or rangefinder.
This is an exciting camera and I am really happy to own it.
So, after doing the research I was glad to see that Amazon had this camera at a great price point. The problem was that I don't make a lot of money, and as such even the $599 that Amazon was selling it for was still high for me. So, I saved and eventually got the camera. And I have to say that even though I was fully expecting a LOT of buyers remorse (that usually happens to me when I spend a lot of money on myself) I haven't had any.
But, on with the review. I'm not going to get into the technical points of the camera and the specs. Those can be found on this site and on numerous web sites. What I like about this camera (and I am certainly not an expert by any stretch) is it's ease of use.
I like how when I go through to change a setting the camera tells me what that change is, and what it will do. I like how the owners manual actually has a very large section explaining the importance of ISO, shutter speed, aperture...etc. I like how when I make changes I can see immediately the effect that they will have on the picture via the 3 inch screen on the back.
So, as I move away from "auto mode" this camera acts as a tutor in a couple of different ways. And personally, I like that hand holding. As a beginner I can recommend this camera to a beginner that wants to get out of auto, and I can see how it will continue to be a viable tool as I learn.
Given rumors that Samsung is getting out of the camera business (or at least the interchangeable lens camera business), and the fact that this is an older camera, this may not be the right purchase for everyone. But I'm thrilled with it. Image quality rocks. Selection of features is great. I LOVE the articulated viewfinder. This one feature seems at first to be a gimmick. But the moment you pull it out, and can out the camera to your eye and not have your nose hit the camera, you see how cool it is. And to be able to tilt it up, so you are looking down into the camera, really makes the 'odd angle' shots a easier.
I researched hard before ordering this camera. I had a limited budget, and had some Samsung glass already (not a huge deal). I would have had to pay way more to move into the Canon or Nikon camps. Their entry level DSLR cameras do not come even close to matching the features of this Samsung, and would have been more expensive to boot. I would have had to move to the mid-level Canon or Nikon to get the same features, with the added cost, and having eventually to replace some glass I already have.
Yes, Samsung makes newer, and even better cameras - the nx500 and nx1. But for my needs, these were overkill (and I wanted the evf the nx500 did not have). So this camera is perfect for me.
The sample photos were all taken with the kit 18-55mm lens. Which does pretty well for a kit lens.
