Samsung upgrades the selfie on new NX3000 smart camera

Selfie addicts will be apoplectic with joy at the news that Samsung has designed a camera that makes it easier than ever to take photos of themselves.

The NX3000 Smart Camera’s 3in Flip-up display has Wink Shot technology that means by simply opening up the screen, turning it towards you, and winking it will capture a selfie in one fell swoop.

The camera’s Self Shot mode automatically airbrushes selfies, which can be turned off, and there is also the ability to set a 3-second countdown timer when taking selfies.

That isn’t all as it has an impressive set of features that means when not taking selfies it performs to the high level that has become the standard for the NX series of compact system cameras.

It has a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with 1/4000 shutter speed and 5fps continuous shooting that allows users to snap photos at a fast rate in whatever location.

Lens-wise it has a 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS lens that is lightweight but doesn’t lose any of its power due to this fact. The camera’s zoom function can also be controlled via a mobile device by using the Remote Viewfinder Pro setting to allow for more creativity when taking shots.

As this is one of Samsung’s Smart cameras it features Tag & Go integration that means photos can easily be shared by using the device’s Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. In addition to this it has various advanced features such as Photo Beam and Mobile Link.

Samsung will release the camera in the UK in the middle of June with no pricing details yet confirmed and as a point of reference it comes in at $529 [£312] in the US.
