Samsung Philippines lent me this cute pink camera to play with some weeks ago. It’s actually one of their newest models, the Samsung NX2000. This is not a tech review in the sense that I’ll cover every single spec and detail in the brochure. I’m simply here to share how I used it and what I thought of it so you’ll be getting a bird’s eye view from a regular person.
To start, the pink color is very attention-getting. People always look when I take it out, lol. If you don’t want the attention, better get it in black or white.
You charge it the way you would a cellphone. You don’t have to take the battery out.
It reminds me of my Sony NEX-5N with its slim body and ginormous lens. It packs a full 20MP.
Its entire back is an LCD display… almost. You know how Samsung loves flaunting their super clear and bright screens… it’s always larger than life. 😀
If you’re the type who likes toying around with shooting modes, the Samsung NX2000 has a lot of those. I just set it in full auto the entire time it was with me. You navigate via touching the screen.
If you want to use the flash, pull it upwards. I almost always never use the flash when I take photos because I find it tends to wash everything out. This cam also has a Direct Link button which allows it to connect to the internet via wifi so you can upload photos and videos online straight from the camera.
What I noticed about the Samsung NX2000’s photos is the clarity of lines and details. Check out my tonkatsu photo above. You don’t need to be a professional to take incredibly clear shots with this cam.
This is a tonkatsu photo taken by my Sony NEX-5N. Yes both tonkatsus are from Yabu.
The Samsung NX2000 also has a Beauty Face mode you can select from the menu. Think of it as instant Photoshop for perfect airbrushed skin, hahaha. Above are photos of me taken by the Samsung NX2000 — the one on the left on full auto mode, the one on the right on Beauty Face mode.
Wow. I was so amazed when I was doing product shots with the Samsung NX2000. I felt as if I was staring at a magazine ad. The clarity is incredible.
Hmmm I didn’t do any travelling while the Samsung NX2000 was with me so I don’t have any landscape shots. I’m pretty sure they’d look just as good as the rest of my photos on this post.
Out of the box, you would have to attach the kit lens and flash by yourself but that’s pretty much it as far as assembly is concerned. Battery life is okay, I guess. I was able to use one charge shooting pics for 3-4 separate days.
You can see more sample photos taken with the Samsung NX2000 on the following blog posts:
I’m not fond of taking videos so I didn’t try out that function. The cam can however take HD videos at 1080p.
In a nutshell, the Samsung NX2000 boasts of 20.3MP. Its ISO can go way up to 25600. Yes, it can perform well in low light conditions. I actually took photos of my barbecue in a dimly lit JT Manukan branch during a dark and rainy night (see above) and it was… decent.
It has 2GB internal storage too in case you can’t be bothered to buy a memory card. It’s lightweight and relatively easy to carry around too.
The Samsung NX2000 is priced at P29,990 and is available where Samsung cameras are sold (I’m thinking appliance stores, electronics shops, Samsung stores of course, etc.).
