And that’s not all, the NX300 is also going to bring the new Samsung 45mm f1.8 2D/3D lens in its entourage, which according to the South Korean company is the first one-lens 3D system in the world.

  • Max shutter speed of 1/6000th of a second
  • 8.6 fps for JPG bursts
  • ISO range of 100-25600
  • 3.31-inch AMOLED touch display
  • Dedicated mode dial on top with full-size hot shoe mount
  • New Hybrid AF system
  • Dual band WiFi
  • 3D capable DRIMe IV processor
  • Charges via micro-USB

The Samsung NX300 and 45mm f1.8 lens are all expected to begin shipping this coming March. The camera is going to cost around $750, complete with a 20-50mm kit lens and a copy of Adobe Lightroom. However, you need to shell out at least $600 for the Samsung 2D/3D lens.
