Product information

Bring the flexibility and power of a DSLR to everyday shooting with the Samsung NX3000. Complete with a versatile 16-50mm lens, Wi-Fi and NFC you’ll be ready to shoot and share at any range.

Powerful CMOS sensor
Worthy of pros but built for everyone, the 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor gives your images incredible detail and amazing colour. It’s perfect for beautiful out-focused photos and noise-free images, even in low light.

Wi-Fi & NFC
Share photos effortlessly via Wi-Fi and NFC. Photo Beam lets you transfer photos instantly, and you can send whole albums with MobileLink. You can even save to your mobile device as you shoot with AutoShare.

Remote viewfinder
The NFC-enabled Remote Viewfinder Pro turns your smartphone into a remote control. Adjust camera settings like shutter speed, exposure control, and more—all wirelessly from your smartphone.

Full HD video
Shoot video Full HD (1920x1080p) at 30 frames per second with lifelike colour and extraordinarily sharp details. The H.264 format allows you to record longer MPEG-4 video, so you can capture more of the action.

Smart mode
Make advanced photography techniques easy. Start taking great shots, like perfect trails of light at night, or instantly capture a high-speed scene. Just a quick tap of Smart Mode and you’re set with various modes to shoot perfection.

Burst shooting
With the NX3000, you have the power to shoot a burst of images at five frames per second. So when you have less than a second to document that breathtaking dive, this camera has you covered from start to finish.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.

Note: Please check the compatibility of the lens with your camera.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It is excellent I was an early convert to digital cameras; (about 15 years ago) I have owned two different makes (Fuji and Nikon) across 5 models. This time I wanted a camera that, could at a stretch fit in my pocket, have a high resolution sensor and obviously excellent lens/optics. I bought the Samsung Galaxy NX3000 late last year and have so far taken more than 3,000 photos. It is excellent. It is quite simple to use, a lot simpler than my old Nikon. I bought a spare battery/charger for a recent holiday, but to be honest I didn’t need it, as I was getting 300 photos per charge. I also bought a NEOPine soft case from eBay, which was cheap and does the job. In short this is great camera that you can take with you all the time and always get good images on the standard ‘auto’ setting. It has no built in flash (it comes with a standard hot shoe fit flash) but I was getting really good night-time and limited light photos without the flash. If you are a keen photographer, but don’t want to lug around a big SLR and/or a camera/kit bag, then buy one of these! 13 February 2015
