Samsung NX300

28 Reasons why Samsung NX300 is better

than the average

1.Significantly more megapixels (photo)
20.3MPvs 16.7MP (the average)
vs 108MP (best: Panono Camera)
2.Clearly larger sensor
23.5 x 15.7mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.Measurably more focus points
247vs 37 (the average)
vs 425 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
4.Distinctly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
9fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.Has a flip-out screen
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
Flip-out screens are useful for doing tricky shots.
6.Vastly higher maximum light sensitivity
25600ISOvs 19130ISO (the average)
vs 3280000ISO (best: Nikon D5)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
7.Significantly better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,003 x 36.4fps (the average)
vs 2,160 x 60fps (best: Canon EOS 1D X Mark II)
8.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The device can connect to WiFi.
9.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
10.Has a 24p cinema mode
Yesvs No (76% don't have it)
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
11.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
63.7mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
13.Measurably less body volume
316.3cm³vs 531.1cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
14.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
40.7mmvs 50.8mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
16.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
17.Has a touch screen
Yesvs No (79% don't have it)
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
18.Bigger screen size
3.3"vs 2.9" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
19.Has GPS
Yesvs No (85% don't have it)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
20.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
21.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
22.Has touch autofocus
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
The autofocus is immediately set to the subject by just touching it on the touch screen.
23.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
24.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
25.Measurably more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
26.Has dual band technology
Yesvs No (100% don't have it)
Dual band devices can transmit data quickly on the newest 5 GHz band, using recent standards (eg. 802.11n, 802.11ac etc.) They can also use the older 2.4GHz band if needed.
27.Hybrid AF System
A single sensor uses both phase detection and contrast AF to focus better.
28.Is compatible with Android
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
