Way to go Samsung. Snagging a guy like Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man, as your NX spokesperson is big! 

Photography is not a new hobby for Usain Bolt. After winning gold at the 2012 Olympics, Bolt grabbed sports photographer Jimmy Wixtrom's Nikon D4 and took some fun shots of his own. But in this case, Usain is grabbing the Samsung NX300 to do some serious photography.

Through the NX Junior Campaign, Samsung is teaming up with The Usain Bolt Foundation to offer photography equipment and lessons to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In addition to this announcement, Samsung is announcing that the NX300 and the 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens is now available for purchase. The NX300 is being sold for $750 and the 45mm lens is available for $500. Check out our first look hands-on preview of the NX300 and the 45mm lens here.
