Samsung NX5 is NX10 made cheaper

Samsung’s hybrid semi-compact camera, the NX10, was sort of a challenger for the micro four-thirds market but the price tag was a bit of a turn-off for a lot of people. So, they made the Samsung NX5 to address that price issue.

You basically get the same specs of the NX10 on the NX5 but Samsung skipped that pretty 3-inch AMOLED screen to be able to offer it cheaper.

Samsung NX5
14.6MP APS-C CMOS sensor
Optical Image Stabilization system (OIS)
DRIM image processor
Full HD 1080p video @ 30fps
Contrast Autofocus with 16 AF areas
3fps continuos shooting speed
ISO 100-3200 (50-6400)
3-inch LCD display screen
Pop-up Flash
HDMI, USB 2.0 ports

We’re not sure when it will become available locally but expect the retail price to be a little lower than the kit of the NX10 (see review here) which is still hovering the Php40k range. My guess is that the Samsung NX5 will go somewhere between Php30k to Php35k.

  1. I’m not sure if I’ll go with Samsung on this, since they are still untested when it comes to camera… With price tag of 30K, I’d rather get Nikon D3000. :)

  2. This is a possibility.

    What do we loose from the Amoled to LCD screen Abe?

    please help

    D5000 kit (grey unit) costs 30K flat at Henry’s. Mayer’s prolly sells it for about 1k less.
