The Samsung NX20 is a digital compact camera produced and marketed by Samsung since April 2012 as a successor to the Samsung NX11. It is a 20.3 Megapixel mirrorless interchangeable lens camera using the Samsung NX-mount.[1]

The NX20 is comparable in weight and size with cameras such as the Sony NEX, Nikon 1 and the Micro Four Thirds series of cameras.[1][2]

The NX20 includes the i-Function lens control system and a built-in WiFi for connection to online services such as email and social networking.[3][4][5]

Samsung NX30[edit]

The NX30 is similar to its predecessor, the Samsung NX20, but has fast hybrid autofocus which Samsung claims can detect an object in only 80ms.[6]

In addition to this advanced phase-detect/contrast-detect hybrid autofocus system, but it has improved ISO range,[7] better continuous shooting speed (8 vs 9 fps), Full HD videos @ 60fps (NX20 being limited to 30fps only), a higher resolution display and tiltable viewfinder.
