RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- January 3, 2013

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and convergence
technologies, today announced the launch of the NX300, the new flagship model
in its successful NX series. The NX300 once again raises the bar for compact
system cameras (CSC), delivering an outstanding combination of features,
functionality and style for perfect shooting in every moment. Samsung also
announced the new NX 45mm F1.8 2D/3D lens, the first one-lens 3D system
capable of capturing both still images and full HD movies in perfect 3D
quality.

Myoung Sup Han, Senior Vice President and Head of the Digital Imaging
Business, Samsung Electronics, commented: “Since its launch in 2010, the
Samsung NX System has become synonymous with innovation and design, making the
best digital imaging technology available to everyone without compromising on
style. The NX300 builds even further on this illustrious heritage. Not only
does it deliver incredible speed and accuracy through advanced photographic
features, but it is truly built around the user, with upgraded SMART Camera
functions making shooting and sharing both easy and seamless. We are also very
proud to introduce the first one-lens 3D system alongside the NX300, opening
up a whole new world of 3D photography and video recording for consumers
everywhere.”

Perfect shooting

Central to the NX300’s outstanding imaging performance is its brand new 20.3
Megapixel APS-CMOS sensor, capable of capturing high quality detailed. Images
boast sharp, life-like colors and are crisp and clear in all light conditions.
The wide ISO range (ISO100-25600) further improves performance, letting users
capture beautifully balanced images in even the darkest conditions. A brand
new Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) system also delivers fast, accurate phase and
contrast detection, while the 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps continuous
shooting mode ensure you never miss a moment.

The Samsung’s unique in-house developed DRIMe IV imaging engine provides
outstanding developments in speed, and image quality. The DRIMe IV engine
enables better color reproduction and greater noise reduction, as well as
support for full 1080p HD video capture in both 2D and 3D (when combined with
Samsung’s new 45mm 2D/3D lens).

The NX300’s 84mm (3.31”) AMOLED screen makes capturing and reviewing your
images a pleasure, while the hybrid touch screen and 5-way manual key
interface is simple and intuitive to use. The tilt display makes it easier
than ever to take high and low angle shots, letting you capture your world
from any angle you choose.

Easy usability and stylish retro design

The compact NX300 makes it simple for anyone to achieve pro-like and
impressive pictures easily with minimal technical knowledge or time spent
adjusting parameters. Using the camera’s Smart Mode, users can choose from 14
different settings, such as Creative Shot, Landscape, Light Trace or Action
Freeze which will automatically adjust parameters such as aperture and shutter
speed in order to obtain the best shot possible for the desired situation. The
NX300 also includes i-Depth, an easy and simple way to adjust the depth of an
image using the NX Series’ unique i-Function system which enables users to
modify camera parameters using the lens itself, adjusting the image without
ever having to move off target.

The NX acclaimed design returns with the NX300 sporting a stylish yet simple
retro feel that is available in either black or white with a contrast silver
band, conveying elegance and authenticity.
