Samsung styles up its NX3000 entry-level ILC (pictures)

Now its most inexpensive interchangeable-lens model looks more sophisticated.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

Two tone

The NX3000 looks a lot more like the NX300, with three two-tone color choices: black, white, or brown

Selfie friendly

As is the trend, the LCD flips up completely for easier selfies.

Unlike many entry-level ILCs, the NX3000 has a hot shoe.

New kit lens

The NX3000 kit comes with the 16-50mm power-zoom lens; the NX2000 included the old, manual-zoom 20-50mm lens.

Controls

While the NX2000's operation was more screen-driven, the NX3000 has more a more traditional control layout.

Slimmer profile

Although the body is actually a hair deeper than the NX2000, the NX3000's more compact lens makes the overall package slimmer.

Tilting LCD

The NX2000 has a huge, high-resolution display. While the NX3000's tilts -- a useful feature -- it's smaller and rather low resolution.
