A good mirrorless camera always comes in handy. Our recommendation this season is Sammy’s new flagship model in the NX series. Boasting stellar picture quality, dope wi-fi features (photo sharing, hotspot), and an alluring retro-design—the NX300 is an all-around performer that combines functionality with style. It’s the first shooter to tackle a 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens, adding third-dimensional photos and videos into the mix and executing both formats well. Speed is where the NX300 excels best snapping an est. 16 JPG shots at 7.2 frames per second.
