The Evolution of Samsung’s Cameras, NX10 becoming one with i-Function Lens

Samsung has unveiled the new NX11 at CES2011 in Las Vegas during January. The NX11 has been designed based on the NX10, and supports 14.6M pixels APS-C image sensor, ISO 3200, 720P movie recording, and 30~1/4000s shutter speed. These are almost the same as the NX10. Due to these features, people will easily think there’s no difference between the two cameras, but taking a closer look, there are some differences such as i-Function lens functions, panorama, and sound capture mode. Besides, it has advanced noise handling feature in high ISO, so the overall quality of the pictures has also been upgraded. These upgrades are good.



Practical Design with Grip

The design is similar to the NX10, but the grip is better. The grip on the front has been changed. The grip allocates more space for the middle finger, which is good for us small handed people. It is 123 x 87 x 39.8mm and weighs 353g without the battery and memory card.


Due to the new shooting modes and i-Function mode, the design of the mode dial has changed.

the camera functions by the i-Function button on the camera


The i-Function button on the 18-55mm II OIS lens (released with the NX11) is to control the camera functions. It’s a good combination with the NX11 which includes the electronic view finder, because various settings are easily set by the lens. The i-Function can be activated by pushing the i-Fn button on the lens barrel, and the setting is adjustable by using the focus ring. The adjustable items vary by the mode. In P/S/A/M modes, ISO, White Balance, Aperture, Shutter speed, and exposure can be set. There are more video samples. Here is the link to the source.
