While recording in 2D, the lens has an aperture of f1.8 which allows users to capture exceptional images, even in low-light situations. While in 3D, users can capture either still photos or Full HD video. The intuitive I-Function feature gives users one-touch access to all your camera's manual settings. Adjust the aperture, shutter speed and more with just a twist of the lens while previewing the image in real-time. Plus since it's incredibly lightweight, you can take it with you anywhere. This 45mm f1.8 2D/3D lens is compatible with the Samsung NX300 Compact System Cameras.

From the Manufacturer

The Samsung EX-S45ADWUS looks like a regular lens, but it allows you to take 3D photos and videos when you put it on an NX camera that supports 3D. The lens has a focal length of 45mm and provides great performance in both 2D and 3D mode. It also features a fast F1.8 maximum aperture and Samsung's intuitive i-Function for quickly changing settings.

45mm 2D/3D Lens Offers Creative Versatility

The Samsung EX-S45ADWUS features a 45mm (equivalent to 69.3mm in 35mm format) focal length and takes photos in both two and three dimensions. When used with a camera that supports 3D, the lens can create 3D images and videos that are playable on compatible 3D televisions.

The lens also performs well in 2D, with a fast F1.8 maximum aperture that gives you creative control over depth of field and allows you to work in low-light situations. The lens is ideal for portraits, letting you take dramatic shots with background blur to isolate the subject.

One-Touch Access to Controls with i-Function

Samsung's i-Function feature gives you easy one-touch access to your camera's manual settings. You'll be able to adjust shutter speed, aperture, and more with just a push of a button and twist of the lens.

This lens is basically the same as the 2D-only Samsung 45mm f/1.8 Lens, with the addition of a pair of internal lenses & LCD shutters that automatically swing into place with the flip of a switch. This lens will only work with the NX300 and NX2000 (and possibly newer models); if you have an older camera, this lens will only operate in 2D mode.

In 2D mode, this lens is excellent for portraits. It is about the equivalent of a 70mm lens on a 35mm film camera. It has an f/1.8, making it useful for low-light situations and giving it a tight depth of field. This is the second widest aperture currently available in a Samsung lens, beaten only by their 85mm f/1.4 monstrosity.

Unfortunately, the lens is much less useful in 3D mode. When the 3D lenses are engaged, it drops down to a T6 (transmission-stop, which is the f-stop modified for light transmission losses). It's nearly useless indoors without a tripod and even outdoors the shutter was remarkably slow. Worse, it appears the lens works by taking two full resolution photos in quick succession, rather than dividing the sensor into two smaller simultaneous images. This means if there is any motion, the resulting 3D image will be blurry. The camera works well taking 3D shots of scenery or architecture on a calm, clear day, but you can forget about using it with children or animals.

If you do manage to take a good shot, you'll still need something to display the image. For each photo you take, the camera records a standard 2D JPEG and a 3D MPO file. You can display the MPO file using a 3D TV or computer monitor, or an Oculus Rift, Nintendo 3DS or HTC Evo 3D.

One of the reasons I bought the Samsung NX camera in the first place. Still learning to use it but my first attempts look pretty good. Hooks up to 3D-HD TV via HDMI. Outputs 3D stills and video. Wish they had more lenses

I have NX500 and this lens 2D/3D does not work. You can take picture and thats about it. The image format is always jpg and you can't change it in the settings. Lets of people will tell you it is compatible with NX500 however there is no document or proof just a You Tube link to a sample which proves nothing. Even the manual that comes with this lens tells you that this lens needs special camera that can detect the lens and switches format. If you go to the Samsung official product page "[...]" you will see "Compatible Products" list which clearly indicates only 4 cameras will work with this lens. And then in PC Mag in "[...]" it clearly said "allows you to capture 3D images and video when you pair it with the NX300 camera; it is not compatible with any other NX cameras". Maybe I missed something, however facts remains which is I could not get this to take 3D pictures on my Samsung NX500.

I was so excited when I received this lens. So far, I'm loving the Samsung NX300 camera and, with a road trip to Utah looming large on the horizon, this seemed like the perfect way to capture some fantastic scenery.

I experimented with some shots around the house and at the Disneyland Resort. I have a Samsung 3D TV but, for some reason, the 3D image didn't work -- it seemed to be a double exposure. Since I have an LG 3D TV, too, I simply moved the camera to that room. The picture looked absolutely amazing. There was a rose on the bush in the front yard and it looked like I could just reach out and pick it. It was sharp and clean and beautiful.

So, I really have no issues with the 3D function. Other than the limited capabilities, it looks fabulous. It's limited because the only way to take advantage of the 3D is on a 3D TV. Of course, that's obvious, but opportunities then are small since there is no other way to share.

But, the "feature" that breaks my heart is the field of view. The lens is 45mm and fixed; however, it's just too zoomed for my use. My other lens, a 20-50mm, has a much bigger field of view. You can see the difference in my photos. It's the front of my house taken from the same location. The first -- with pretty much just the porch -- is with the 45mm 3D lens, the second with the 20-50mm lens at 50mm. I would have had to cross the street to get my whole house in the photo, and then the tree would block it.

Same thing at Disneyland park. I had to move to the other side of Walt and still part of Sleeping Beauty Castle is missing.

So, although it may work in canyons and mountain ranges, I don't want to be so intent on getting everything in the photo that I step backwards off a cliff.

And, just FYI, the lens must be used in landscape mode. In other words, I could not have used portrait mode to capture all the castle turrets.

So, sadly, it's going back today.

I learned......I have the NX20 from a few years ago. The mount will fit and take pictures but the 3D software is not on the camera NX 20 are to old. I think Amazon is great for saying it is compatible. Since I bought the NX20 on here. But it is misleading that it only fits. I hope I can return under my ignorance. The transaction was fine. I told the seller I was having issues. I chatted with a SAMSNG rep and he verified I can take pictures just not in 3D.
