My mother is still not a big fan of taking pictures with her Smartphone so I decided to buy her a proper digital camera (because til now she was still using an old classic film one). On Amazon I bought this Samsung NX30 Kit 18-55 for a little under £500 with free postage. The camera arrived in about three days with a proper packaging. The box contained the device itself, Samsung 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Lens, Body cap, BP1410 Li-Ion Battery and a battery charger, USB cable, user manual and Photoshop Lightroom 5 Software.
Few device specifications:
- 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS Sensor
- 3.0 inch (1037k) Tiltable AMOLED Touch Display
- DRIMeIV Image Processor
- High Speed 9 fps Capture
- Full HD Video with Stereo Audio
- Wi-Fi & NFC Smart Connectivity
The product dimensions are 4.2 x 12.7 x 9.6 cm and weights 376 g. It is not one from the lightest devices in the market, however it is still comfortable to carry the camera in hand around. You can flip the screen around and take great self portraits. We tested the camera in poor light and the quality of the pictures was absolutely amazing. The camera is very easy to use and even my mother (her always takes ages to learn something technologically new) picked up the usage of the device very quickly. This camera with interchangeable lenses was by time of purchase one of the best on the market for amateur photographers.
My mother absolutely loves this camera and still takes it with her on all her travels.
