Just few days before the Consumer Electronics Show 2010, Samsung has unveiled their latest NX10 digital camera that boasts 14.6-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and using mirrorless interchangeable lens (like a digital SLR camera). It is also capable of HD movie recording and comes with a 3-inch AMOLED screen.

Las Vegas, NV, January 4th, 2009 – Samsung today announced the Samsung NX10 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas – a digital camera that boasts optimum image quality in a sleek, compact body.

The NX10 incorporates a fast auto focus (AF) 14.6-megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor and large 3.0-inch AMOLED screen, allowing users to easily view their images, even under bright sunlight. Users can also record videos in High Definition to create the full story. Available in Noble Black and Titan Silver, the Samsung NX10 features one of the fastest AF in its class in the market which ensures users never miss a moment,. The company’s latest innovation, the new DRIMe II Pro engine and advanced AF algorithm, also provide ultra fast AF speed with the higher precision of contrast AF.

In the heart of a DSLR embedded inside the compact frame of a digital camera, successfully integrating the APS-C size CMOS sensor with a mirrorless interchangeable lens, for a sleek, lightweight camera that users can easily take with them everywhere they go. Users are not just limited to taking shots but can also tell their own stories in video format with HD movie recording (H.264 codec).

Samsung incorporates a large 3-inch AMOLED screen in Samsung NX10. AMOLED provides easier viewing even in bright sunshine and at acute viewing angles, meaning users no longer need to shield their screen with their hand. The screen also provides 10,000 times faster response rate than conventional LCDs, has a far lower power consumption and higher contrast ratio – 10,000:1 vs. 500:1.

The Samsung NX10 also contains a range of intelligent features to put professional quality images within reach of the amateur photographer. The Samsung NX10 includes in-depth manual controls and also a Smart Auto function which automatically detects the surrounding environment of the shot and selects the right shoot mode. Its Smart Range feature also enables the user to vividly express both bright areas and dark areas in the same frame, and the Supersonic Dust Reduction system keeps those dust particles clear of the image sensor that can often impair an image. It even senses when the user brings the camera close to their face to look through the viewfinder, and puts the AMOLED screen on standby to conserve power.
