The Samsung NX300 really does earn the title of the flagship NX mirrorless camera. It offers a classic leatherette skin draped over a sleek metal body. It is solid and sturdy–the best made NX of the entire lineup. Its image quality is clean and sharp, only giving way to serious pixel degradation at ISOs above 6400.
The Wi-Fi functionality is simple to use and unable to be beat by any other camera except for Samsung’s own Galaxy Camera. So far, no other camera company has been able to create an easier Wi-Fi experience. This is great news for those that desire great image quality and want to have their images available on the web with the blink of an eye.
In addition to a great camera, Samsung is now packaging the NX300 with Adobe Lightroom giving users $150 worth of free software ($80 value if you already own a previous version of Lightroom).
We have found way more pros than cons when it comes to the NX300. Besides a couple issues surrounding the battery, we are very content with the way the NX300 feels and performs. The camera has an MSRP of $800 and includes either the 18-55mm or 20-50mm lens. However, we were able to find deals at B&H and Best Buy for $698 and $650, respectively.
