    I like this camera very much. I started photography when I was a little boy almost 35 years ago... I had many cameras, but no one (even Canon 5d Mark II) never make me so exited. First of all it small and light with very good lens and touch screen and this touch screen could do all adjustments... with small and light "Slik" tripod this camera now with me even I go shopping or meet somebody. Low noise, instant HDR mode together with manual modes... You can see Horizon and vertical level on touch screen. Quick autofocus. If You like RAW - you can use RAW. If You like HDR - it make instant HDR (yes it took a little bit time, but result coast this time. It economy minutes and hours of post work with pictures). It communicated with yours mobile phone or online storage. Quick recharge. MENU easy to understand without reading any instruction. SHARP. Nice colors. I recommend this camera to beginners and too professionals.

    I LOVE my Samsung NX300. Did not even know I was in the market for a camera to replace my beloved and well-used Nikon D3100. Then I saw her sitting there in the case. "I must hold her," I thought. Apparently aloud, as within a moment the nice sales associate had her out of the case and in my hands. Then I saw her price and I thought, "No effing way! I am a teacher! A divorcee with a child and no child support! I care for my mother, for crying out loud!!" But buy her, I did. Then I returned her, only to buy her again when she went on sale 50% off!! Seriously worth full price, though! Takes amazing photos and I love the touch screen feature. I also love the way I can get superior DOF with this camera vs. my Nikon. Only because I can actually SEE what the photo will look like before I activate the shutter. Fabulous camera! But it!!

    Perfect DSLR substitute so far.

    Had the camera for about a month and have been thrilled so far. I love the look and feel of it--reminds me of the old Nikkormat I had in high school--and am equally pleased with the image quality. As a non-expert, I am unable to speak to many of the nuances of compact system and DSLR cameras, and how the Samsung compares to other brands. However, if you are looking for something less bulky and cumbersome than a full DSLR, but want the control and image quality that a DSLR affords, I can very comfortably recommend this camera. And if you already have other Samsung devices, you will have the added bonus of connectivity through the Samsung app, which allows you to quickly, and wirelessly (sp?), upload photos from the camera to your phone/other device.

    I have always used point and shoots and recently have started to use my iPhone 5S for my blog. However, I wanted better picture quality and really wanted the shallow-depth-of-field look in my photos. I decide to go with this camera because it was so easy to use and the learning curve wouldn't be as bad for a noob like me. I absolutely love how it looks (I got it in white). I also like the tilting screen which makes taking photos easier since you can put the camera in certain positions without following it. The picture quality is very good. My camera came with Adobe Lightroom 4 which is very useful for correcting bad lighting. I hope to get better at using this camera :)

    I have a Canon Rebel but after last summer my husband and I realized we needed a less bulkier camera to take on the motorcycle with us. I spotted this camera just after Christmas and convinced my other half we needed to give this camera a try. Best investment, I am able to play with all the settings and get the shot I want. The pictures come out beautiful! My husband being a beginner loves that he can pick up this camera and get the perfect shot he wants every time in auto mode. It's a win win for both of us and are ready to have so much fun with this camera this year. The only thing I don't like is it had no viewfinder only am lcd screen which doesn't rotate much and the battery doesn't last as long as I would like.

    Great alternative to pricier DSLR cameras

    This camera delivers on just about everything you could want from a DSLR, but for a lot let. Plus, if you are a gadget lover, the built in WiFi integrates with your smartphone, it shares pictures on the big screen smart TV like a breeze. It can auto-upload to your favorite social media site like facebook or flikr. Then, the features... this camera allows you to easily start taking creative control of your shots. The user interface and the i-function button bring all the different elements of exposure (ISO, shutter speed, f-stop, etc) right to forefront. If you are looking to step up from point-n-shoot, but don't want to invest thousands in equipment, this is a great option!

    I have been eyeing this camera and one other every time i went into best buy. I decide to get this one when they didn't have the other one. I'm so glad that i did. I LOVE it. i love everything about. what i really like is that when i turned off all the lights in the house and took a picture it was crystal clear every feature of this camera is good. i can't think of anything bad. its small (not bulky) you can buy lenses. it has a direst link that you can send the pictures to your Samsung phone or to your cloud. Best Buy had it in store for 650ish on sell normal price(799.99) and i found it on their website for 550.00. they sold it to me for the website price. Love the Samsung NX300.

    This is the best point and shoot camera yet. This camera is very easy to use. It is very easy to setup for the iniacial setup. It is very easy to to just take pictures and send them to friends or just post them on Facebook. I bought this camera and charged it up fully and was taking pictures and posting them on Facebook in minutes. When I'm in areas that does not have Wifi I can connect to my phone and send pictures or post them via my phone. If you are looking for quality point and shoot camera with wifi then this is the for you.

    I have chosen this camera over a new SLR since it can take pictures just like a PRO. It is great for beginners as it is user friendly. The features are easier to understand in comparison with my old canon SLR. It's touch screen feature and all the photo effects are my favorite not to mention its WIFI access feature. As of the video, it was ok but not as great as when you use an SLR or GoPro. However, the camera was beautifully designed with a brown leather surface which makes it is so classy every time I carry it around. All in all, this camera is a great find!

    Great Surprising Samsung Camera

    My first compact mirrorless camera. I am just surprised how good this camera is in different levels: great quality picture and video, and the look!. Very sharp and natural color pictures. I also tried the Sony A6000, but it did not match the picture quality of nx300 (this was a surprise given the high quality reviews of this camera). Highly recommended for my family and friends. Great job Samsung, and I think this camera deserves a greatest status online!.

    I still have plenty to learn about how to use this camera to get optimum photos but I have been shooting in mostly aperture priority mode and have been getting great results. I love the wi-fi connectivity, it makes it so easy for me to share photos and the in-camera editing capability is handy too although it doesn't replace an editing program like lightroom for example. Very fun camera, I am looking forward to using it more and trying out different lenses!

    I own a full DSLR and wanted something smaller for traveling. My local BestBuy had this and the Sony NEX series cameras in stock. I chose the Samsung based mostly on the looks and I am really impressed with my choice. This camera takes great pictures, nice video, and is very easy to use. I would definitely recommend. The wifi features are also great and the application to pair with my Android phone always impresses.

    Having used an older model Samsung NX1000 I was a little skeptical of purchasing the NX300. But after reading other reviews and seeing that Samsung had worked on and succeeded at improving the image quality and low light capabilities of the 20MP sensor, I was sold. The kit lens is very sharp and produces some great images. I have shot images up to iso 3200 and have been very pleased with the Samsung NX300.

    I love the style of this camera. We weren't able to try it at the store because the display unit didn't have any power. I loved the pictures we took with it and the ease of figuring out the menu options. Unfortunately it didn't have a high enough zoom for us so we returned it. We purchased the Samsung Galaxy 2 which has a 21x zoom. If you don't want a larger zoom or don't mind purchasing a different lens to get a larger zoom, this camera is great.

    I wanted a nice camera but really wasn't trying to get into an expensive dslr. This camera is perfect if you want good quality pictures without the extra lens, editing, etc you need with a dslr. You can connect to wifi and upload pics directly to Facebook and other social media. What I really enjoy most is you can edit right on the camera with different features. The only con I have is the battery dies fairly quick.

    Can't say enough good things...love the style, function and ease of using this camera. I wanted to replace my bulky canon while on vacation and the NX 300 was a great alternative. Crisp photos and wifi allowed me to transfer photos directly to my phone or upload to social media. I used the automatic setting a lot while on vacation but have used the manual settings for everyday shots and love them!

    I am not an experienced photographer but I love this camera! I think the photo quality is great and I love that I can send photos straight from the camera. I also get comments on the camera itself all the time. My boyfriend is a bit experienced with photography and he's also impressed with this camera. I love it and would definitely purchase it again.

    The camera is great. It had a ton of features and takes quality pics. Although it has a few less megapixels than the Nikon D3300 which I was also considering, the smaller size makes it ideal for travel which is what we got it for. The pictures from our trip turned out really well and the moveable screen is a plus.

    I was looking into Canon and Nikon DSLR's, but those are so expensive... Then I came across this camera, which has a faster burst rate and a better ISO rating. I highly recommend this camera for someone who just got into cameras. This is a huge step up from a cell phone and point-and-shoots. Great bang for the buck!

    This camera, compared to any other similar cameras, is the best deal for the money! Image quality is outstanding, even in low light. Camera is light and feels great in your hand, though the small control dial at the top is a little awkward to use sometimes. The screen is incredibly sharp and vibrant.
