This screenshot of Samsung’s plans for new NX-series lenses (for Samsung NX10 and NX100) in 2011 was apparently on display at Photokina 2010.

  • Macro: 60mm OIS f/2.8 iFn
  • Movie Pro: 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OIS iFn

Samsung NX100 Announced

The Samsung NX100 follows the well-received NX10 in Samsung’s mirrorless camera lineup.  The NX100 features a 14.6MP APS-C image sensor, a 3-inch AMOLED screen and a more compact design than found on its sibling.  The NX100 is capable of capturing 720p HD video and offers a sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400.

Samsung did not provide pricing or availability information for the NX100 prior to the embargo date; however, I will update this page when such info becomes available.  In the mean time, you can check availability on Amazon.com.

Along with the NX100, Samsung has also announced several new NX-series lenses available in 2011, including the following:

  • 60mm Macro
  • 18-200mm
  • 16mm
  • 85mm
  • 16-80mm

Samsung NX100 Rumored to Launch in September

Recent leaks and rumors suggest that the Samsung NX100 will launch just before Photokina 2010.  Photo Rumors is pegging this camera as a higher end camera to the mainstream Samsung NX10, which was recently reviewed here.

And that makes sense, given that the NX5 (not launched in the US) is a stripped-down version of the NX10.
