Samsung Adds i-Function Lens Compatibility To NX10, Forming the NX11


Samsung today announced an update to their NX10 mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, just about a year after we first heard about it. The NX11 is actually not much of an improvement (which is not to say it’s bad); the addition of i-Function lenses and an adjustment of the grip seem to be the only new features.

Beyond that you have the same 3″ 640×480 AMOLED screen, 720p/30 video, and an APS-C sensor producing 14.6 megapixels. It’s got a hot shoe, a new lens priority mode, and all the usual accessories. I remember some disappointing early reports of the i-Function lenses, though, so make sure you try this out in person before making the commitment. The NX11 should be available in February for $649 with an 18-55mm i-Function lens.

Samsung also announced a new compact camera, the WB700, a sort of compact megazoom. It’s got a 18x optical zoom, puts out 720p and 16 megapixels, and… there you have it. It’ll cost three hundred clams. That’s actually quite a nice-looking little camera.

Lastly, there are two new i-Function lenses for those of you interested in such things: a 20mm F/2.8 pancake and a 20-50mm F/3.5-5.6 zoom.
