Samsung Digital Imaging on Monday introduced the NX series, a new line of digital cameras the company calls "hybrid," for their DSLR-like design and features. The cameras are expected to hit store shelves in the second half of 2009.
The NX series cameras use an APS-C-sized sensor -- the same type of sensor that many digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras use, but it does not use a "mirror box" for viewfinding. Instead, it employs an electronic viewfinder, which Samsung says enables the camera to be lighter and smaller than a conventional DSLR.
The first models of the new NX Series are scheduled to ship in the second half of 2009, according to Samsung. The company has not announced pricing and Samsung's Web site is not yet updated with details about the announcement.
