Samsung NX5

NX5 is a digital camera by Samsung with AMOLED display ,pop-up style flash, SD / SDHC memory card support,DMIU connectivity and many more…..

If you’re looking for a DSLR styled camera that’s rather more compact in terms of proportions and which is billed as being the perfect entry-level system camera for the amateur photographer Samsung hope that their new Samsung NX5 Micro Four Thirds Camera, which is the younger sibling of the Samsung NX10, will prove tempting enough for you to part with your hard earned cash.

So you like Samsung’s NX10 pseudo-DSLR camera, but can’t quite reach up to its price point? Good old uncle Sammy is looking out for you with this here budget-friendly model.

Samsung’s NX5 camera which has been rumoured for some time has now been officially released. The NX5 is the smaller brother of the NX10 yet still packs in a  14.6 megapixel system into its smaller form factor.

The most important difference is the higher image quality compared to other compact camera. Like the NX10 the Samsung NX5 has an integrated APS-C CMOS image sensor, the same sensor size of almost all digital SLR cameras.

the NX5 replaces the AMOLED display with a standard 3-inch LCD, but looks to be keeping all the other important features. That means you’re still getting an electronic viewfinder and that 14.6 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor — which collected plenty of review approbation — inside a compact body, plus the same selection of NX-mount lenses to choose from.

The NX5 features an electronic viewfinder interchangeable lens support and has a 3 inch TFT LCD rather than an AMOLED display which you would find on the NX10.

The Samsung NX5 boasts a 14.6 megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor and, yes, it’ll offer HD movie recording and Live View capabilities and the same electronic viewfinder as featured in the NX10 but, in order to cut down on pricing, you’ll need to factor out the NX10’s AMOLED display as you’ll find that replaced with a standard LCD display measuring in at 3”. Additionally you can still count on an integrated pop-up style flash, SD / SDHC memory card support and HDMIU connectivity which, in terms of size, the NX5 comes in at a highly respectable 123 x 87 x 39mm (WxHxD).

A €699 ($855) launch price might not seem like a great deal, but we’ve found its elder brother retailing for $619 on together with a kit lens, so expect prices to tumble downwards shortly after this shooter’s release in late June.
