The DRIMeIV processor uses a single-core, 800Mhz Cortex-A9 processor, as well as a SGX540 GPU, which are similar to what you'd find inside a lower-end smartphone these days.EngadgetNot RatedSamsung unveils Galaxy Camera 2 and NX30 with NFCThe NX30, meanwhile, builds on the NX20's formula with upgrades to image quality and the display. The new mirrorless cam sports both a more light-sensitive 20.3-megapixel sensor and a fast hybrid autofocusing system that takes just 80ms to find its subject.Tom's GuideNot RatedSamsung NX30 Hands-On: Mirrorless Camera ChallengeThe NX30 viewfinder is bright, without noticeable pixels, providing a very good preview of a shot. It doesn't, however, have the lifelike color and detail of an OLED viewfinder, such as in Sony's pro-level A7 and A7r cameras.CNETNot RatedSamsung NX30 gives tilting viewfinder a whirlWhile Samsung's ramping up its connectivity with NFC for quick connections and stressing more app-based features like improved Flickr and Dropbox integration, and group sharing, I think the built-in tilting viewfinder is the most attractive new feature.Pocket-Lint90Samsung NX30 reviewAt £899 the NX30 isn’t pocket money, but don’t be tempted to call it expensive just because it isn’t a "real" DSLR. It may be lacking the mirror, but in every other respect it’s a high-end, semi-pro camera that could leave you asking why you’d want anything larger.Imaging ResourceNot RatedSamsung NX30 ReviewWhile the sensor in the Samsung NX30 continues with the 20.3-megapixel resolution we've seen in several previous NX cameras, its performance has been improved by moving to a new manufacturing process that uses copper, rather than the more common aluminum, metal interconnects.Pocket-LintNot RatedSamsung NX30 unveiled before it makes its public dIt sports a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, 3-inch Super AMOLED swivel and touch display, tiltable EVF with eye contact sensor, and has a swathe of Wi-Fi connectivity options and access to cloud services. You can even get your email on the camera. A DRIMeIV image processor runs the show.TechRadar90Samsung NX30 review: Fantastic all-rounder with loIt seems like Samsung has finally made a camera which enthusiasts can aspire to own. It's a great camera to use, and crucially, images are fantastic. The NX system is starting to become a more complete package, with a decent, if limited, range of optics currently available.T380Samsung NX30 reviewIt handles well, it's responsive, it takes clear and punchy pictures, and apart from the price tag, which is sure to come down after launch anyway, we have very few grumbles.What Digital Camera90Samsung NX30 ReviewAlthough the NX30 might not boast the best build quality of all CSCs in its class, it's a model that has an awful lot going for it. ... the model also handles particularly well, and with the inclusion of Lightroom 5 as standard you're looking at a pretty complete package for those wanting to invest in an enthusiast CSC.PC Pro80Samsung NX30 reviewThe Samsung NX30 represents a seriously tempting package, offering the best features of a DSLR without the potential bulk. With a rapidly growing lens line-up, it’s almost as flexible, too, which makes the £899 asking price – roughly equivalent to a Canon EOS 70D or Nikon D600 – far easier to swallow.TechRadarNot RatedSamsung launches NX30 - 'professionally' inspiredThe camera also features, for the first time in a Samsung CSC, a tiltable electronic viewfinder with 2,359k dot resolution. The 3 inch touch screen display is also movable, offering full articulation.DigitalCameraReviewNot RatedSamsung NX30 Hands-On PreviewDCR was unable to upload the photos shot with the NX30 to a computer, but at first glance, photos looked crisp on the LCD display. Zooming in made it easier to check on the quality of each photograph for blur and other imperfections.Expert Reviews80Samsung NX30 reviewA solid all-rounder with exceptional ergonomics.TrustedReviews90Samsung NX30 reviewThe NX30 combines some neat innovations, an outstanding feature set and smart design to very good effect.ePHOTOzine90Samsung NX30 ReviewThe Samsung NX30 would make an excellent choice for anyone with Samsung lenses, and the introduction of additional lenses is a good sign, although the relatively high introduction price may put some off.TrustedReviewsNot RatedSamsung NX30: Hands-onClearly the NX30 it has a lot of potential – it’s nicely made with a logical control layout and a strong specification. Samsung has done smart things with the design and fit and finish, too, making this a CSC worth looking out for when it comes out later this year.Expert ReviewsNot RatedSamsung NX30 review - Hands onIt’s a very capable-looking camera though and should provide some competition for our current favourite the Panasonic G6 which currently costs around £650.Photography Blog90Samsung NX30 ReviewDespite our reservations about the level of build quality, the new Samsung NX30 offers more than enough innovation, performance and image quality.

Based on my enthusiasm for the NX300 expectations were high and the NX30 has not disappointed. Has been a couple of weeks since I took delivery of it, but I am putting the NX30 down as one of my best camera decisions so far. -ELWEngadget Reader90May 12, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80May 1, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I was looking for a more compact camera to lug around with me on a daily basis. I went from a Nikon P7800, Sony NEX 6, Samsung NX30, Sony A6000, and then finally back to the NX30. In the end the DSLR feel of the NX30 kept winning me back because DSLR's are all I shoot with. The Good:- DSLR feel in a small form factor- Articulating touchscreen LCD ( I have to add that an articulating LCD means that you can turn it completely around to face the camera thus protecting the LCD)- Wireless and NFC are easy to set up and plays great with my Galaxy phone- Two scroll wheels to change aperture and shutter speed- Kit lens includes lens hood- Shutter speed tops off at 1/8000The Bad- Very small lens choice for fast lenses (but all compacts suffer from this)- Price is about $100-$150 too much- Weird 24p mode at 1920x810- No Samsung branded replacement batteriesThe A6000 is definitely the best bang for the buck and the camera that I would suggest for an enthusiast. But the NX30 is the camera I would suggest to a pro looking for an enthusiast camera. I recently paired it up with a Canon 50mm FL f/1.8 with an adapter and am loving the form factor with the lens.
