The NX210 is an advanced compact system camera with a 20.3-million-pixel, APS-C CMOS sensor. It has 8fps continuous shooting, built-in Wi-Fi for email, social networking and transfer, and an ISO range of 100-12,800 that lets you take high-speed photos even in low light. Samsung’s slender, all-purpose i-Function 16mm lens offers great versatility, with quick and easy one-touch access to all your camera’s manual settings.
