Camera has interchangeable lenses and lots of features

Samsung has tossed a new digital camera into the limelight this week called the NX11. The new digital camera promises a set of features that are much like the first mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras that Samsung brought to market such as the NX10. The new camera will ship with an 18-55mm i-Function lens and it will also be available with pair of additional i-Function lenses (20mm pancake lens and a 20-55mm zoom lens).

The cool lenses put all of the controls the user needs at their fingertips for easy adjustments and use. The idea is that adjusting settings directly from the lens allows the user to make adjustment without needing to take their hands of the camera and eyes off the subject.

“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 NX11, while offering the best features of the 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.” 

The camera boasts integrated flash and an electronic VGA resolution viewfinder along with a 3-inch rear AMOLED screen. The camera can also record 720p HD video and has an APS-C sensor. The sensor has a resolution of 14.6-megapixels and the lenses use the NX mount. Image stabilization is currently built into the lenses of the camera. 

Overall dimensions will vary a bit with the lens used. The dimensions of the body are 123 x 87 x 39.8mm and the camera weighs 353g without the memory card inside. The camera has all sorts of auto modes and other features and face detection that can detect up to ten faces per shot. The camera will ship in February for $649 with the 20-50mm lens.

This isn't an SLR by definition since there is no mirror. SLRs will still be better than mirror-less designs at least for a while.

I agree the lack of 1080p is pretty odd now that it's 2011. I would never consider this camera personally.
