The Samsung NX500 has been rumored to be released for a few months now. We thought we might see it at CES 2015; however, Samsung really had nothing new for photographers. Rumors and leaks for the new NX500 have reached fever pitch. [Read more…]
Samsung Germany has published the product page for the NX2000 even though an official press announcement has not been made yet. Key details of the upcoming APS-C mirrorless camera include a 20.3MP sensor, 3.7″ touch screen display and wireless image sharing with mobile devices.
Samsung dropped what looks to be a pretty exciting camera with its Galaxy Camera last month, which is a heavy duty Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered point and shoot. In it, the camera is not just one of the features, it’s the whole point of the device – something that looks to become a serious trend.

I think we’re about to see an onslaught of these in the next few months – particularly at CES 2013.
The latest rumor of a non-phone Android-powered camera comes from Samsung. The electronics giant (who just got spanked by Apple over patent infringements regarding Samsung’s popular smartphones’ similarity to the iPhone) may be putting together the “Samsung Galaxy S Camera.” [Read more…]
