As with any market’s technological advancements, photography often finds itself caught between tradition and innovation. Seasoned photographers have been sporting bulky DSLRs since their introduction, but now compact system cameras have entered the mix. The four-star Samsung’s NX30 bridges the gap between the two phenomena, providing a classic DSLR-like body alongside new mirrorless imaging technology. The jet-black , 20.3MP camera boasts shutter speeds of up to 1/8,000, while built-in Wi-Fi offers the ability to instantly share images via social media and email. Continuous shooting at 9 frames per second also allows you to capture the frantic action of fast-paced environments, while an ISO of up to 12,800 ensures great stills in the poorest of lighting conditions. Additionally, the NX30 is outfitted with Full HD 1080p video recording capabilities, with an 3-inch LCD touchscreen that includes the option of an electronic viewfinder.
Now through July 31, electronics superstore Adorama if offering $300 off the initial asking price of the Samsung NX30, with bundled two-day shipping when using coupon code “SAMSUNGSUM”. Your order even includes a Samsung 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 lens kit, Photoshop Lightroom 5, and all the necessary accessories to charge, transfer, and shoot. The reign of the DSLR probably isn’t changing anytime soon, but mirrorless models are certainly challenging the status quo.
