Samsung NX10 Images Leaked

Samsung NX10

Update #2:  As of 1/4/10, the Samsung NX10 has been officially announced.  For more details, click here.

Update: After this post was published, Samsung contacted me and requested the addition of the following statement: This information was not supplied by Samsung and does not represent an official announcement of the NX10. Final technical specifications and details regarding the camera system will be made available by authorized Samsung representatives at a later date, with the official launch of the product.

It looks like some images of a production model of the Samsung NX10 have leaked out onto the web via DPR forums.  The above image shows the smaller body design with no mirror in between the lens mount and the 14.6-megapixel sensor.

You can also see the video setting on the mode dial in the other images in the DPR forum.  It looks like a pretty nice design; however, not quite as small as you might expect from a mirrorless body.

We’ve been waiting a long time to get hands on a production model from the Samsung NX series.  It looks like we may be getting close to that actually happening.  Hopefully, we’ll see a release by the time CES 2010 rolls around and get to play with this new camera.

Samsung NX10 and 30mm f/2 Lens Update

Samsung NX10

Update: As of 1/4/10, the Samsung NX10 has been officially announced. For additional details, click here.

The Samsung NX 30mm f/2 lens has leaked out onto the Pentax Forums.  The image in this thread reveals the expected pancake form factor of the 30mm lens with a 43mm filter thread.  According to the poster, the leaked image was supposedly captured with a Samsung NX10 and 18-55mm lens.

Other loosely “confirmed” lenses include the aforementioned 18-55mm zoom and a 55-200mm zoom lens.
