Samsung's NX11 Compact System Camera in AV Roadshow 2011

One of the Samsung gadgets featured in yesterday's Samsung AV Roadshow 2011 was the NX11 Compact System Camera.

Held at the Crown Plaza in Ortigas, this year's Samsung AV Roadshow 2011 focused largely on the Samsung Smart TV; but that is for another article. :)

NX11 Compact System Camera

Allow me to focus on the new NX11 Compact System Camera for now. In addition to the NX family of cameras, the NX11 contains a feature set similar to Samsung’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the NX10.

NX11 improved in the grip design for comfort and easier shooting. It also has a lens priority mode dial to simplify mode searching for each lens.

More importantly, it now has a panorama mode for taking landscape scenes or large groups. The panorama mode allows for a one press-and-sweep motion similar to what competitor brands also came up with.

Similar to NX10, NX11 still uses APS-C sensor, which is larger than that of a Micro 4/3 for high-quality images. It can be said that NX11 is a combination of the NX100 and NX10.

The NX11 is also compatible with Samsung’s new i-Function lens. The i-Function lens has a built-in button. Without taking the camera off the target, users can toggle between shutter speed, aperture, EV, WB, and ISO using the i-Function button and ring on the lens.
"Because a typical camera user wraps their hand around the lens when holding the camera, the new i-Function system means that photographers can naturally use their left hand to change settings through a button..."
