Samsung officially announces the Galaxy NX DSLR camera, coming in October with a hefty price tag58
But, while professional and semi-pro DLSRs have been dropping in price recently, meaning that you can get a quality camera anywhere from $500 to $1000, Samsung thinks that it has added enough value to the Galaxy NX and is planning to sell it for $1599 (body only). If you want an 18-55mm lens with that it will cost you $1699. Given what the Galaxy NX offers, it can be argued that it is worth the price, but it's certainly not an easy sell.
As a camera, the Galaxy NX offers a 20.3MP APS-C sensor along with a DRIMe IV Image Signal Processor, an Advanced Hybrid Autofocus system, a 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps shooting, and the option to swap lenses. On the mobile device side, it features a 4.8-inch 720p touchscreen and SVGA (800 x 600 pixel) electronic viewfinder, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot that is expandable up to 64GB, 2GB RAM, and a 4360mAh battery, all running on Android 4.2.
As an added bonus, it offers all of the TouchWiz Smart Modes in the camera, where they make more sense than on a phone, and you get access to the Google Play Store and all of the apps therein. And, the camera includes an a 4G LTE radio, in addition to Wi-Fi connectivity, so you really can do more with your photos directly from the device. There will be a Wi-Fi only model, but there is no pricing for that just yet.
What do you guys think? Worth it?
