Samsung will soon unveil a new camera, the NX500, which will just be a smaller version of its award-winning camera NX1. This mirrorless camera will get sort of downsized as the new camera will have almost similar specs, just the size will be different. The NX500 will have the same size as that of its predecessor, NX300. You will be able to shoot 4K videos and that too at a much lesser cost as compared to the $1500 worth NX1.

The NX500- What to Expect?
The specs are not going to be lesser in the NX500 because of its lower cost when compared to the NX1. It will have 4K resolution of 4,096 X 2,160 and a 28 megapixel BSI (backside illuminated) APS-C image sensor. The camera can shoot continuously at 9 frames per second (fps). The Ultra High Definition video recording with 3,840 x 2,160 resolution will make this camera a must-have for people who love photography. It has an improved Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The ISO is the same as NX1, which is at 100-25600 and can be extended up to 51200.
The UHD video recording and 4K will give you videos which you can watch on 4K monitors and TVs. The NX500 will be able to create high resolution photos into UHD quality time-lapses in the camera itself.
There is a 3 inch Super AMOLED touchscreen on the rear of the camera that can be angled down and flipped up 180 degrees. You can click amazing selfies as much as you want. There is hot shoe on the top which you can use to fix an external flash that comes with the camera.
Look and Feel
The NX500 looks classy with an aluminum frame body which is encased in fake leather. The batteries are the same as that of NX300. So, if you are planning to upgrade your NX300 to NX500, you won’t need a new battery.
You will get three colors to choose from- brown, black and white. However, the thing which will be lacking in the box of Samsung NX500 is a free copy of Adobe Lightroom. This is because the company is not developing this photo-editing software any more.
The Samsung NX500 will be launched in mid-March and will be available at a price of $799.
Do you own any of the Samsung cameras- NX1 or X300? Will be buying the NX500? Looking forward to hear your thoughts.
