The Samsung NX3000 is a smart digital camera with a 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor and an adjustable 3-inch display. Thanks to the fast 5 fps

The Flip-Up Display with ‘Wink Shot’ ensures that you can easily take selfie shots. You simply open up the display, strike a pose, wink at the camera and your selfie is taken by the camera.

All video recordings are done in

Full HD
