Retro, sort of

Samsung's revised the midrange NX model's design with a more retro two-tone look, but the effect is ruined by the lenses, which have a much more modern feel.

Controls

There are a full set of direct-access controls that you can use instead of, or in addition to, the touch screen. They're redesigned from the NX210: the back dial is gone, replaced by a five-button panel, and it's got a bigger thumb-grip area. On the downside, the record button is very flat and in that awkward area on the right shoulder. That's the same place it is on the Sony NEX-6; hopefully, this isn't the start of a trend.

Like the NX1000, the NX300 now has a button to directly invoke Wi-Fi; in the NX300, it's user-programmable for selectable connectivity options. The grip is also slightly larger than the NX210's.
