Samsung has announced what it says is the first one-lens 3D system on a camera that can produce 3D video and still images.
The NX300 is the new flagship model for the NX series of compact cameras and alongside its launch Samsung has announced its NX 45mm F1.8 2D/3D lens. When operating in 3D mode it uses a pair of LCD filters, which each project slightly different images onto the sensor of the camera. When used with the Samsung NX300 it produces 5 megapixel 3D stills as well as 1080/30p HD video in 3D.
The NX300 compact camera features a new 20.3 megapixel AOPS-CMOS sensor for high levels of detail, as well as a wide ISO range (100-25600), which should allow images to be grabbed even in very low light conditions. With a 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 9fps continuous shooting mode, you shouldn’t miss anything!
There are 14 different settings for Smart Mode, including Light Trace, Action Freeze and Creative Shot, as well as i-Depth, which makes it easy to adjust the depth of your image without moving off your intended subject,
The Samsung NX300 has a retro look and comes in either white or black with a contrasting silver band. Images can be shared instantly via smartphone and tablet thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity.
The Samsung NX300 was launched at CES and there is no price or release date as yet for the UK. The 45m 2D/3D lens will be sold separately.
