Samsung today announced that the new NX1100, compact system camera (CSC) with built-in Wi-Fi and AutoShare, is now available in the U.S. bundled with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 for a MSRP of $599.99.
The camera is boasting a 20.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, fast shutter speeds of up to 1/4000 seconds, a 3.0-inch LCD screen, 1080p HD video capture, and technologies like Smart Auto 2.0.
With the touch of a button, users can connect via Wi-Fi thanks to a dedicated Smart Link Hot Key on the top of the camera that shares photos instantly between the camera and a mobile device or directly to social media sites like Facebook and YouTube.
The Samsung SMART Camera App, available for both Android and iOS, creates a secure connection with the camera. The NX1100 is able to detect and auto-connect to a mobile device wirelessly whenever any of the SMART Camera features are activated. These include AutoShare, which automatically sends full resolution images and video to your mobile device; Mobile Link, which allows users to select and transfer images or albums from the camera directly to your smartphone at their leisure; and Remote Viewfinder, which provides users the ability to control the camera from a smartphone or tablet.
The camera comes bundled with Lightroom 4, helping amateur and professional photographers import, manage, enhance and showcase all their images within one application. Lightroom 4 is a $149 value and upgradeable once future versions are released.
With the Smart Auto setting, the camera analyzes, identifies and automatically selects the most appropriate scene mode. Scene detection technology identifies the conditions and automatically adjusts settings to help achieve dynamic images. For users seeking more control, the Smart Panel feature allows them to explore their own photography skills with Full Manual Control settings for aperture, shutter speed, flash intensity and more - all from a single menu screen.
The NX1100 touts ten exclusive Smart Filters and a new Selective Color function, which allows users to isolate a single color in an image for a dramatic effect. Capturing an expansive scene is easy thanks to the 3D Panorama feature.
The NX1100 (MSRP: $599.99) is now available in white and black from authorized Samsung retailers.
