Samsung Galaxy NX photos (pictures)

It's big, but it offers the potential for excellent photos and connectivity done right.

Body

The body is pretty big, even larger than the NX20.

Grip

The grip is humongous but comfortable, and the top controls look oddly featureless. Excluding the grip, the body is actually rather thin. There's a small record button and a large adjustment/select jog dial, plus a rather hard-to-press power button.

i-Function

The camera takes the NX line of i-Function lenses, which allows for settings changes via the rings on the lens.

Battery compartment

The huge 4,360mAh battery is necessary to support the large LCD and electronic viewfinder, as well as all the extra draw from the image-processing subsystem. The camera takes microSD cards and has a SIM slot.

Connectors

There's a microphone input as well as a USB connector and an HDMI output.

Camera Studio

Samsung is touting a feature called "Camera Studio," which is really just a folder that holds all your camera-related applications.

Room for everything

The huge screen means the interface can be really big and fat-finger-friendly.
