Samsung NX1000 Smart Compact Camera with free tablet and cashback

The Samsung NX1000 Smart Digital Compact is one of the South Korean company’s most versatile digital cameras and it now comes with a cracking bundle, including a 20-50 lens kit, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet (with an SRP of £199) and £50 cashback.

Not a bad deal for a device that once carried a suggested retail price of £500, but can now be purchased for £399 at Amazon. Note that the cashback offer ends on 15 December.

The NX1000 has what Samsung calls a “professional-grade” APS-C CMOS sensor. This is not only several times bigger than a compact camera’s sensor but also (it is claimed) one that can rival any premium DSLR. It has a 20.3-megapixel resolution and can, of course, take full HD videos.

As expected, it comes with a flurry of features including a 40ms shutter lag, interchangeable lenses, the ability to capture up to eight photos per second, Wi-Fi connectivity, the ability to interact with a number of services like Facebook, YouTube or even SkyDrive and an ISO range going from 100 to 12,800.

Note also that no memory card is included and that you can link the camera to any Android device using applications like MobileLink and RemoteViewer.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
