Brand New Gear

Photo-A-Day #3262

For the past few months I have been shooting with the NX300 from Samsung as part of the Imagelogger program. Well, my contract has been re-upped because I was sent the NX30 the other day as my new camera to shoot with. I can shoot with both but the NX30 is the one that is going to be primary. I’ll continue to shoot with the NX300 as well.

There are a few differences that I see right away. The NX30 has a really nice hand grip. It is more substantial than the NX300. There are more knobs and buttons on the NX30 than the NX300. the NX30 lets you set the shooting mode with knob. It also has two custom settings hat you can program for things you normally shoot, this will come in handy for photographing the toys.

The LCD screen on both cameras seem to be the same size. The NX300 can tilt 45 degrees down and 90 degrees up. the NX30’s LCD screen is the kind that flips out to the side so that you can take great pictures of yourself or use the camera to shoot videos. The NX30 also has an electronic viewfinder. It is really cool because when you get your eye close to the viewfinder it turns on automatically. You can also pull the viewfinder out and tilt it up 90 degrees. The NX30 also has an integrated pop up flash. The NX300 came with a flash that you can put onto the hot shoe.

I’ve been incredibly impressed with both cameras. As I learn more about them I’ll be posting some great information.

Here are a couple of photos.
