Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies announced firmware upgrades for two products within Samsung’s NX compact system camera range – the NX100 and NX10 on April 18th 2011 in Seoul Korea.
Following the availability of the innovative i-Function lens feature on both models, the latest upgrades are set to make the cameras even more convenient for the photographer to use, bringing added value to Samsung’s NX range customers and putting the perfect picture at their fingertips.
Here are the improvements in NX10 (v1.30) and NX100 (v1.10) Firmwares
1. The Panorama function is added (in the Scene Mode menu).
2. New 18-55(II) mm, 50-200(II) mm, and 18-200 mm i-Function lenses are supported (in addition to the OIS menu).
3. The algorithm of Video AF is improved, and the low contrast in the AF function is increased.
4. By default, the Video AF mode is set to CAF.
The firmware upgrade also makes these functions faster and quieter than ever, giving photographers the ability to take noise-free, professional-looking still images and movies with ease.
In addition, through the upgraded firmware, the NX100 and NX10 now provide the i-Function setting help guide via the camera’s display, as available on the recent NX11 model. The feature helps users take impressive shots more easily by guiding users with explanations on different functions of the i-Function lens.
Mr. Hyunho Chung, Executive Vice President and Head of the Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics, commented: “We continually look for ways to improve the photography experience, to make it more fun and add value for our customers. The latest upgrade is reflective of this. Users of the NX system already benefit from key features such as compact portability of the devices, and innovations like the i-Function lens. Through ongoing developments, we hope to offer even more to enable photographers of all levels to get the best results and professional-looking pictures every time. We look forward to announcing a number of additional developments in the future to make the NX range even easier for our customers to use.”
