The Samsung NX series is a series of APS-C mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras with Samsung NX lens mounts from Samsung Electronics, introduced in 2010.

The APS-C image sensors have a 1.54× crop factor. Optical image stabilization is featured on some of the lenses, indicated by an "OIS" marking. Automatic focusing on NX lenses is handled by a dedicated electric motor built into the lens.

Cameras[edit]

Samsung NX-mount[edit]

With an diameter of 42mm the lens mount has a comparatively large flange focal distance of 25.5 mm – the 35 mm full-frame format Leica M mount is only 2 mm larger (despite this, M mount lenses cannot be mounted on NX camera with preserving infinity focus.

NX-mount lenses[edit]

As of February 2015, there are 15 Samsung lenses available.[8] As of February 2015, the NX-mount is supported by at least one additional manufacturer: Samyang Optics, which only delivers lenses without autofocus / image stabilization.

Current Status of NX series[edit]

An official announcement from Samsung has never emerged, detailing the current status of the NX brand. It is widely known that Samsung pulled their camera business out of all major markets.[9] This leads to speculation that NX has been abandoned by Samsung. No future development is anticipated.
