Jumping the CES gun by a little bit, Samsung decided on an early announcement for a couple of its 2011 cameras. In addition to the, the company is adding the NX11 to its interchangeable-lens camera line. Ostensibly a follow-on, rather than replacement for the NX10, the NX11 seems to offer minor tweaks and a different kit for a slightly lower price.
The main change over the NX10 is support for the i-Function lens system that was introduced with the
The NX11 also has some design tweaks, including an updated grip, and ways to more directly access the i-Function and Lens Priority capabilities. It will ship as a kit in February with the new 20-50mm i-Function lens. Priced at $649, it lists for only $50 less than the NX10. That's a sign that the NX10 will likely disappear pretty soon. Samsung hasn't updated the camera's 720p video or, presumably, many of the other issues I had with it, including a so-so EVF and poor default settings, so I have to admit to some disappointment with this announcement. We'll see in February.
