November 19, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

You may remember in the summer, Samsung announced a new Galaxy Camera. This one I was actually very interested in. It’s a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses and based off of their NX Camera series. The Galaxy NX is a 20.3MP mirrorless camera. Best of all, it runs Android. In fact, it’s running Android 4.2 – Jelly Bean. The Galaxy NX is featuring a 20.3MP APS-C sensor which provides us with some pretty amazing images that are very detailed and performs very well in low-light conditions.

The Galaxy NX Camera is on sale today in Samsung authorized resellers starting at $1599.99. The Body only is $1599.99, and the kit with the 18-55mm lens is going for $1699.99. We should be getting a review unit in soon, and we’ll be putting the Galaxy NX through it’s paces and see just how good it actually is. I have some pretty high hopes for this one, since I really liked the Galaxy Camera last year, and the Galaxy NX is a better camera…or should be.


So how many of our readers are going to pick up a Galaxy NX camera?
