Samsung Announces the NX2000 Smart Camera

Samsung’s NX2000 Smart Camera features a 20.4 Megapixel ASP-C CMOS sensor that offers 8 fps, an ISO range of 100 to 25,600, and a top shutter speed of 1/4,000 of a second. The camera is powered by the DRIMe IV engine that is reportedly able to "reduce noise, improve speed and enable superior color reproduction."

The NX2000 offers Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity and includes a 3.7-inch WVGA (800 × 480) touchscreen that allows users to access a variety of functions such as "Action Freeze," which captures and collates a moving scene in a single photo and "Best Face," which chooses the "best facial expression" from five pictures for each person present.

The Samsung NX2000 Smart Camera will be launched at the end of May for $649.99 in three colors: white, black, and pink. It includes a complimentary copy of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.
