The Samsung NX100 is a mid-cost mirror-less compact camera. Samsung promotes this camera as the world's first camera with an i-Function lens. The i-Function lens allows you to instantly adjust aperture, speed, and exposure with the touch of the i-Function button. You do not even have to look away from the lens to make adjustments. The i-Scene mode of this camera automatically senses what kind of lens is attached, and suggests the best type of scene to shoot with that particular lens. The NX100 has an APS-C sized CMOS sensor, and shoots in 14.6 megapixels. This sensor will help you to capture natural color and clear images in your shots. The 3.0" AMOLED display of this camera shows clear, detailed images, and can be viewed even in the sunlight. You can shoot 720p video with the NX100. Thanks to the HDMI interface of this camera, you can hook up the NX100 to your HDTV and watch your clips on the big screen. The Samsung NX100 comes with 7 Smart Filter effects, which allow you to put your own artistic spin on your images. The Samsung NX100 comes with a ninety day parts warranty.
