    Best of both worlds

    I love taking picture, though I'm not a professional photographer. I quickly noticed how much more true to life the color was on this camera than other's that I've used in the past. The pictures are also very sharp. It turns on and is ready to take pictures very quickly. My favorite feature is being able to transfer photos from the camera to my Samsung cell phone using the built-in NFC chip! It makes sharing pictures with family and friends a snap. (Get it? A SNAP!) I love the smart options. I can't wait to play with the light trace mode. A friend showed me how to manually adjust some settings as well, so I have plenty to explore. Also, when I registered the camera with Samsung for the warranty, they extended the warranty by three months just for registering. That made me feel much more secure in this purchase.

    Great Cam for a Great Price

    Picked up the refurb for quite a bit less than list price but it would have been worth it if I had paid full price. I had a cross country trip planned to Yellowstone/Tetons and the Grand Canyon with other stops along the way and I entrusted all those memories to this camera... I wasn't disappointed. Absolutely excellent photos from end to end and the smart features make it a snap to take excellent photos even if you're a novice photographer. Very pleased with the kit lens' quality. The only reason I took a star was because the remote viewfinder via my smartphone is pretty limited when it comes to settings and this would be an awesome place to make improvements.

    What a nice camera. Pictures are sharp, clear and accurate. Having an APS-C sensor in such a small body is a huge plus; the sensor can really capture a lot of information leading to accurate colors and clarity. Some minor gripes- the included flash is weak and there are noticeable shadows when using the included kit lens. Also, autofocus has some difficulty in low-light situations where I feel it should still had enough light to focus. Both issues will be resolved with using a smaller "pancake" style lens, but when using the included kit lense they detract from the overall performance. If you want a camera which is relatively small and yet can take some truly stunning pictures this is a great choice, especially if you can get it on sale!

    I bought the NX300 as a start to DSLR photography and wow what a camera. IF you are looking for a good start without breaking the bank then you found the camera for you. I love all the features and ability to go full manual. This lets you go from point and shoot to professional and anywhere in between without the ton of money. Do you research because if you looking for a full pro camera then this is not it. This is a beginning camera so you can learn and experience the abilities of a DSLR. There are a few things I wish it could do like the remote view finder only works when you use it as a point and shoot. There are some many possibilities that could be done but they are not in this model. Enjoy shooting a DSLR and you will love what this camera can do for you.

    Amazing Camera for a beginner

    This camera looks really cool and retro and get lots of compliments from it. The 20 megapixel sensor gives great image quality and allows you to crop easily. Unfortunately this camera is made by Samsung so Nikon and canon lenses wont work without an adapter and once you do that, no auto focus. Also because of the Samsung barrier you may find it a bit harder to find accessories to fit the camera but besides that its a great, small camera.

    This is a high quality--and high tech!--camera. It takes great pictures on auto, and has a deep and wide range of other adjustments you can make--from fully manual to auto plus your own tweaks. No, I am not a camera expert, but I felt it was a great camera for me to get for great pictures and to learn the ropes on, too. Since it was half price, I could not pass it up. Manual is huge, and only online---had to print the whole thing to really be able to study and learn. no other downsides...

    My only complaint is with Samsung support. I was trying to get a replacement part, four different times with support and nothing. Everytime I called they stated I need another number off the camera. The first time, I was taken to the Samsung Website, and linked to a whole different camera. I ended up going to a camera shop and they gave me the part for free. The camera is great, but I may not buy again because of the support.

    I recommend this camera to anyone who is a newbie. It's vey easy to set up and learn even without reading the manual. However, the only major downfall for me was that it was hard to find / figure a perfect setting during night time. Most of my pictures taken during night time or in dark places are not so great. But then again, that is really subjective. Overall, good camera purchase.

    This is a great camera with 20 megapixels. The only complaint I have is that it is kind of awkward. With the large lens on the smaller size camera makes it a little front heavy. I was hoping that in addition to the lens included, it would come with a smaller one for easier traveling. I am very surprised at the quality and clarity of the pictures with the higher resolution. Very nice in that respect.

    I have had my camera a month now. The auto mode allows perfectly focused pics while I've been able to capture a shot with the bokah background on the manual setting. Also there is an app available which allows me to use my phone as a remote to capture photos. :-) This ideal for an at home photo booth type set up.

    I needed a new camera to step up from my old Nikon coolpix. I wanted that next step up without moving to a full SLR. The Samsung hit that sweet spot right in the middle. It takes great photos and comes with a lot of options. I didn't notice when I bought it but it also came with a full copy of Adobe Lightroom which greatly reduces the time I'd spend post shooting.

    Good step-up from a point-and-shoot

    I was not sure about having a camera with interchangeable lens, etc., but have found this camera pretty easy to use so far. Wishing it had more zoom capability without purchasing an additional lens, but the pictures it takes are much better than my much smaller point-and-shoot with higher optical zoom.

    I wanted something compact to take on vacation with me instead of my bulky DSLR. This was a great compact camera, great lenses you can purchase (although pricey) and love the Wi-Fi feature but the images weren't as good as I had hoped. Returned this for a Sony A6000 and am much happier.

    This is a nice camera if you want to get asked a lot of questions and receive compliments regarding the looks. Overall it takes good pictures, but not great. The wifi feature is nice, but the menu system could have been executed better.

    This product is really fantastic. It has variety of options I can choose when I take a picture wherever I am. It is really light and fancy. Also transfer the pictures from camera to the phone is a good program. I liked that.

    The resolution on this camera is amazing, does well in low-light situations but you would benefit from getting a flash. The price was great and I love how light it is compared to other DSLRs

    This camera makes taking decent pictures in almost any condition a breeze. Disappointed that for the money it didn't come with an SD card. The 60 fps video is amazing. Very smooth motion.
