An editor’s choice on most tech blogs, Sammy’s compact mirrorless shooter captures high-quality stills and welcomes state-of-the-art wireless sharing features (hotspot, social media) absent on most of today’s top camera models. The NX 300 is the first of its kind to carry a 45mm f/1.8 2D/3D lens and execute both third-dimensional photos and videos flawlessly, making it a suitable DSLR replacement. And with a 7fps burst-shooting mode, pictures are instantaneous with the press of the shutter button.
