On the back of the NX30 is a brilliant 3-inch AMOLED swivel and touch display that offers vibrant colors, exceptional contrasts, and virtually blur-free motion clarity. The swivel display flips up and down 270 degrees and pivots 180 degrees horizontally.
Wi-Fi Connectivity for Easy Sharing
Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi capability, the NX30 makes it easy to post pictures and videos–along with comments–to Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and other sites. You can also email files to friends and family members or use the Group Share function, which allows you to send images to up to four people simultaneously. The camera also comes with 2 GB of free Dropbox online storage or 50 GB if you also own a GALAXY smartphone.
Full HD Video Recording with HDMI Output for Playback
With the NX30, you can not only shoot photos, but you can also take 1080p Full HD videos. The Smart Range+ feature automatically gives tonal detail a boost, resulting in brighter shadows and darker highlights. Use the HDMI interface to play your video back on an HDTV.
Additionally, when you combine the camera with a 3D lens (sold separately), you get true 3D photos and videos (3D TV system required to view in 3D).
Photo Beam to Share Photos with One Touch
Like other Samsung devices, the NX30 features Photo Beam technology, which makes it a snap to share photos. Simply tap the camera on any NFC-compatible smartphone to automatically share whichever image you’re currently viewing.
Save Photos in Real Time with AutoShare
With Samsung’s AutoShare feature, you can send photos instantly to an NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet–just as you’re shooting them–over a Wi-Fi connection. This makes it easy to back up photos and share them wherever you are.
Remote ViewFinder Pro
When you connect the camera to select smartphones, you can use the Remote ViewFinder Pro app to turn your phone into a viewfinder. A SMART Panel allows you to adjust camera settings, including shutter speed, Iris, exposure control, ISO, and white balance–all wirelessly from the screen of your smartphone. This feature also lets you GPS-tag your photos.
Send Files Using Mobile Link, Even Without Wi-Fi
Based on NFC technology, Samsung’s Mobile Link app lets you select and send photos or albums to a designated smartphone or tablet, even when you’re away from a Wi-Fi hotspot, and without having to send the photos as a text message or an email. The app also lets you manage photos on your smartphone and save the changes automatically to the camera.
Transfer Files with PC Auto Backup
Saving photos, video clips, and more to your computer is easy with the NX30. Just select the PC Auto Backup function, and the camera will wirelessly transfer all of the files on the camera to your PC or Mac.
Samsung Link to Connect with Other Devices
Thanks to Samsung Link, you can connect this camera wirelessly with other nearby Samsung Link-enabled devices and share photos and videos or upload them to your web storage service.
Save Files to Your Personal Cloud with HomeSync
Samsung’s HomeSync feature allows you to save photos and videos to your own personal storage cloud and share them. Even if you’re somewhere else in the world, you can share what you capture in real time with your family at home, with photos and videos streamed right to your Samsung Smart TV.
Powerful Image Processing with DRIMe IV
Powered by Samsung’s next-generation DSP imaging engine, the DRIMe IV image processor delivers superior color reproduction and noise reduction whether you’re shooting in 2D or 3D.
Wide ISO Range for Clear Low-Light Shots
Well suited for capturing natural-looking images indoors or outside at night, the NX30 lets you shoot up to ISO 25600, making it twice as sensitive to light as the previous model of this camera. As a result, you can snap high-speed photos with minimal noise and blurring, even in low-light conditions.
i-Function System for Photo Adjustments
Using this camera’s i-Function control, you can quickly and intuitively adjust the aperture, shutter speed, EV, and ISO range with a single button and a value ring on the lens. i-Function also lets you program existing buttons with frequently used settings and set up shortcut keys.
Edit Files with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
An ideal companion for the NX30, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 allows you to bring out all the details in photos, resulting in crisp, professional-looking shots. This software lets you organize photos by location with GPS tagging. You can also view and make adjustments to video clips, turn them into still images, or trim and edit them according to your needs.
