Samsung has announced a new member of its NX interchangeable-lens, compact camera family. The NX3000 promises "crisp, high quality images" and allows for sharing of images via Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity. It also features a flip-up viewfinder screen for taking selfies.

The NX3000 is the latest in a number of recent additions to the NX range, including the NX Mini, which Samsung says is the world's lightest, slimmest interchangeable-lens camera, and the NX30, a high-end DSLR-styled camera.

The camera features a 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor, 1/4000 shutter speed and 5 fps continuous shooting. Samsung's Tag & Go technology allows users to beam photos directly from the camera to friends' mobile phones, control the camera remotely from a smartphone, and use the Mobile Link app for sharing and viewing photos on paired mobile devices.

Samsung’s 16-50 mm F3.5-5.6 Power Zoom ED OIS lens is bundled with the NX3000, and the lens's zoom can be controlled by the camera via the Remote Viewfinder Pro functionality. For selfie-enthusiasts, the 3-inch screen flips up to act as a front-facing viewfinder and users can trigger shots with a wink.

Size-wise, the NX3000 comes in at 117.4 x 65.9 x 39 mm (4.6 x 2.6 x 1.5 in) and weighs 230 g (8.1 oz), excluding the battery. As with other cameras in the range, it has a retro-styled housing and is available in multiple colors – in this case white, black and brown.
