Samsung’s upcoming mirrorless camera got an unofficial reveal earlier this month when photos of it leaked and spread all over the Internet. Although originally rumoured to be released this February, this is obviously untrue, making speculators change mark their calendars for the new rumoured release date to be set to 2 months from now in May.
Not much is known about the Samsung NX20, and Samsung did not deign comment about it during the gadget-packed Samsung Forum 2012 held mid-month. But what we do know is that its predecessor, the Samsung NX11 retailed for £550 at launch, which probably means that this much anticipated camera will cost approximately the same. So unless the NX20 comes with some real surprises, and ends up on the high-end range of Samsung’s cameras for which the current flagship product is the NX200 (priced at £700 at launch), then the NX20 will probably sell for £600 below.
Aside from the speculations in release date and pricing, what we do know right now about the NX20, again based on rumours, is that it sports a new 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor capable of 1080p video, ISO support from 100 to a new max of 12800, a burst shot mode capable of taking eight photos per second, and to crown it all, WiFi connectivity.
The WiFi connectivity is much talked about and should enable photographers to more easily share their photos via social sites, or just simply upload them without having to take out your cables.
