Samsung NX10 Firmware Update and New Lenses

656722.jpg

Samsung today announced a firmware upgrade for its NX10 mirrorless camera that will ensure compatibility with Samsung's innovative new i-Function lens technology, putting the perfect picture at the fingertips of all photographers through an exceptionally easy way of controlling the camera. The new firmware for the NX10 is version 1.20.

Users of the NX10 camera will now have the power to control the camera's settings conveniently and intuitively from the lens itself, something not possible on other camera lines. While conventional lenses are passive in controlling camera settings, the unique i-Function Lens is a proactive lens that communicates with the camera body. The NX10 will now also deliver total image control with a remarkably easy way to control camera settings to ensure quick image capturing, and also provide customized settings optimized for the lens being used.

To guarantee photographers capture their perfect picture and engage with their shots, all NX system lenses launched from now on will feature the i-Function capability, which is a convenient one-touch button that activates common shooting controls like aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance, meaning easier and quicker configuration while shooting. When the button is pressed, the shooting parameter is shown on screen with a graphical cue and rotating the manual focus ring on the lens changes the value. The firmware upgrade also provides a faster AF speed on the camera, which ensures that users never miss that perfect moment.

The NX system firmware upgrade provides compatibility with a range of innovative lenses and accessories to further enhance the user's experience. The lens line-up available to NX10 users will also include a compact zoom 20-50mm lens to provide both high image quality and portability and a small and light 20mm wide angle Pancake lens, with the updated Graphic User Interface (GUI) to support the i-Function lens technology. The enhanced lens capability will include Lens Distortion Compensation (LDC) to ensure reduced image distortion across the NX model range for all camera users.

Additionally, the GPS tracker enables photographers to capture their exact geographical location in real time. The models will provide camera users with the ability to geotag their special picture moments when capturing images with the GPS tracker, specifically tagging the coordinates and city name. The city names can be displayed across 76 countries and the display capability includes the name of the city directly on the screen, which means that users can now sort their images by location.

“All NX system lenses launched from now on will feature the groundbreaking i-Function capability, so all our customers have the perfect picture at their fingertips.”
— Mr. SangJin Park, President of Samsung Digital Imaging Business, Samsung Electronics
