RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. -- May 01, 2013

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in digital media and convergence
technologies, today announced a new addition to its award-winning NX family,
with the launch of the NX2000. A stylish, slim compact system camera (CSC),
the NX2000 combines outstanding, professional results with revolutionary
Samsung SMART Camera technology. Photos and movies can be captured with ease
and immediately shared with friends and family in stunning clarity.

"Combining consumer demand for quality photography with the increasing desire
for instantaneous sharing has become a focus for our NX range," said Sun Hong
Lim, Senior Vice President and Head of Sales & Marketing, Digital Imaging
Business, Samsung Electronics. "The NX2000 builds on this theme to offer a
stylish model which caters to the needs of today's aspiring photographers who
love to share their lives on social networking sites. Ideal for the everyday
photographer who wants to capture their world, the NX2000 allows users to
express themselves and share their beloved stories with ease with the people
who matter.”

Impressive Photos Made Easy

The large 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor in the NX2000, produced entirely by Samsung
in-house, produces extremely sharp and highly detailed images. Even in low
light conditions, images burst with color. Designed to continuously deliver
high quality images, the NX2000's capabilities are boosted by its DRIMe IV
engine which works to reduce noise, improve speed and enable superior color
reproduction.

With 8fps fast continuous shooting, the NX2000 can effortlessly keep up with
the fast pace of life today, so that no moment is missed. Whether the subject
is quickly moving or the photographer is on the run, the 1/4000^th second top
shutter speed makes taking clear, blur free images an achievable task, while
the wide ISO range (100 to 25600) helps to deliver images that are beautifully
balanced, regardless of the light conditions. The NX2000 works faster and
harder to capture every detail, so people can re-live stories in dynamic
realism.

Take Control of Your Images

Ease of use is intrinsic to the NX2000 and the large 3.7-inch WVGA Full Touch
Screen provides a convenient and intuitive navigation tool to access a range
of features. Slim and modern, the bright screen is simple and quick to use,
making it easier than ever to control all aspects of the camera. SMART mode
provides even more options to aid you in taking the perfect shot, offering 14
different scene modes, a selection of settings which reflect your shooting
environment and needs. Users can take photos of fast-moving subjects, such as
a child running with Action Freeze or capture everyone’s “good side” with Best
Face which takes five consecutive photos and lets the user select the best
facial expression of each person in the picture. Users simply select the mode
that fits their needs and enjoy the expert results.

With a choice of 12 interchangeable lenses, aspiring photographers have
improved control over the images they shoot with the NX2000. From
ultra-compact pancake lenses and versatile zooms, to a premium portrait lens
and a macro lens, the wide lens selection only enhances the photographic
experience. Samsung’s innovative i-Function system allows users to further
unleash their creativity by controlling various settings with the lens, such
as the aperture or shutter speed,so professional-quality images are more
achievable than ever.

Breathing life in to images, the 3D Still and Movie Recording capabilities of
the NX2000, when coupled with Samsung’s 45mm 2D/3D lens (sold separately),
bring an added element of realism to photos and videos, which can be replayed
and enjoyed on compatible 3D TVs. Full HD Video Recording ensures that movies
retain the same level of detail, color and quality as stills, so users can
view their story just the way it happened.

Connect Your World

Enhanced Wi-Fi Connectivity is at the heart of the NX2000, enabled by
Samsung's SMART CAMERA 2.0 technology, offering a host of functions which make
it easy to share and store images directly from the camera. The Samsung SMART
CAMERA App, available on both Android and iOS platforms, provides a
streamlined way of linking smart devices, ensuring that every tech savvy
user’s treasured memories are stored without fuss. AutoShare sends photos, as
they are taken, directly from the NX2000 to a smartphone or tablet, via a
direct Wi-Fi connection. Special memories can be shared instantaneously from
the smartphone when users aren’t connected to an access point, and images are
also instantly backed up for those who are constantly on the go and don’t have
time to worry about storage.

The integrated Near Field Communication (NFC) technology seamlessly links the
NX2000 to many NFC-enabled Android smartphones and tablets. Simply tap the
camera with the smart device and NFC immediately launches the Samsung SMART
CAMERA App and automatically pairs the device via a direct Wi-Fi connection.
Additionally, users can sync their favorite social website, such as Facebook,
to the dedicated Direct Link hot key, for menu-free simplified sharing with
the touch of one button..

True to its commitment to capturing professional quality images, the NX2000
also includes Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4, bolstering its offering to
advanced photographers. With an array of tools, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is
the essential photography workflow application allowing photography
enthusiasts and professionals to enhance, organize and share photos.

The NX2000 (MSRP: $649.99) will be available in white, black and pink from
