Report CES 2010 - Samsung Electronics announced the launch of the Samsung NX11 - the latest addition to the highly successful NX family of digital cameras. The new Samsung NX11 digital camera contains a feature set similar to Samsung’s first mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, the NX10, however the Samsung NX11 is also compatible with the new i-Function lens that was introduced for the Samsung NX100. The Samsung NX11 camera will come complete with an 18-55mm i-Function lens, as well as two new i-Function lenses, a 20mm pancake and a 20-50mm zoom silver color lens. The launch of this new Samsung camera reinforces the company’s commitment to leading innovation in the compact system camera market.
The i-Function lens puts the perfect picture at the fingertips of all photographers by providing an exceptionally easy way of controlling the Samsung camera. Since a typical camera user wraps their hand around the lens when holding the camera, the new i-Function system allows photographers to naturally use their left hand to change the camera’s advanced settings via a button built into the i-Function lens, without needing to take the digital camera off the target. Users can toggle between shutter speed, aperture, EV, WB, and ISO quickly and easily by simply using the i-Function button or ring on the lens, meaning easier and quicker configurations while shooting.

The new Samsung NX11 digital camera also focuses on usability, with a change in the grip design to make shooting easier and more comfortable for users. Additionally, the Samsung NX11 camera has a lens priority mode dial, simplifying the search for the best mode for each lens. The new Samsung camera also includes a convenient, one-touch i-Function button that activates common shooting controls like aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance, meaning easier and quicker configuration while shooting. The Samsung NX11 camera makes taking great landscape scenes or pictures of large groups simple by featuring a panorama mode, which allows the user to take panoramic pictures in one press-and-sweep motion. As with the NX10, the Samsung NX11 uses the best-in-class APS-C sensor for better image quality. The APS-C sensor is larger than Micro 4/3 and delivers high quality photos with ease.

“Today’s launch is important for Samsung in reinforcing our position as a leading innovator in the digital camera market and for showing our innovation in the compact system camera market,” said Mr. Hyunho Chung, Executive Vice President and Head of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics. “The Samsung NX11, while offering the best features of the Samsung NX10, has an upgraded design and the additional i-Function capability with more lenses. The launch of our next offering in the NX range also demonstrates our commitment to our customers, by producing user driven innovation in the form of easy-to-use functions and upgraded customization.”
Samsung NX11 with AMOLED LCD screen
Alongside the built-in flash and built-in electronic VGA (640x480) viewfinder, the new Samsung NX11 has a 3.0” AMOLED LCD screen. The AMOLED screen reduces the glare from sunlight so that consumers can see their pictures under any lighting conditions. The user can also get a more vivid, clearer image through enhanced color reproduction. The Samsung NX11 camera provides high quality video with 720p HD recording, and its large APS-C sensor allows the videos to be recorded with shallow depth of field, providing effects similar to those in motion picture movies.
