Samsung’s got a new camera on the horizon–the NX500. It sports a 28MP sensor and 4K video. The company is cashing in on the selfie craze by outfitting the camera with a 180-degree tilting LCD. As with all of Samsung’s offerings, the NX500 is filled to the brim with wireless connectivity, which makes sharing to Facebook, Instagram and the like a breeze. In terms of megapixel-count, it goes toe-to-toe with the NX1, but it takes design notes from the NX300, its predecessor, making it a lighter NX option.
While there’s no word on price yet for the Samsung NX500, it will be available in Black, Brown and White this March. It seems like an ideal choice for enthusiasts and street photographers, though given its resolution, we’re sure it’d be a boon for portraitists, too.
Head on for specs and product images.
