Samsung NX500 Available For Pre-Order, Still Not Officially Announced

By Anthony Thurston on January 17th 2015

In a rather bazaar twist, B&H has pre-order links available for the upcoming Samsung Nx500 and a price – $799 – despite the fact that the camera has not officially been announced by Samsung yet.

The page has no images, no specs, no information. Just the camera, kits, and price. For that other information we must wait until the official announcement, or rely on the latest rumors, which are pretty sure about the specs…

Rumored Samsung NX500 Specs

  • 28MP BSI APS-C sensor
  • D5s image engine
  • ISO range: 100-25,600
  • New hybrid AF with PD
  • 55ms super fast AF
  • 9fps with AF
  • 1/6000s shutter speed
  • Easy sharing with BT/Wi-Fi/NFC
  • 3: Super AMOLED tilt &flip LCD screen
  • Dual command dial

It looks like a pretty impressive mid-range mirrorless rig. Not quite the ‘NX1-Mini’ that it was originally rumored to be, but still a really solid body that should compete well as more lenses are announced.

If retailers are already posting about the camera, we shouldn’t be waiting too much longer for the official announcement from Samsung. So stay tuned…

Oh, and if you are feeling good about it, you can pre-order on B&H here.

    I got the Nx300 and I really like that camera. Love it for taking candid shots when I’m doing behind-the-scenes photography on independent film sets (people ignore the camera and just do what they’re doing, as opposed to when I bring the Canon out and they suddenly start posing for photos). When it’s released I’ll have to travel into New York City to look at it hands on.

    Will wait for its release and for the reviews.

    I have to agree with Aaron here, if the photos are what the camera will look like, it kind of looks like a bigger version of their Galaxy phone cameras that they tried and kind of flopped… Still, it might be a good piece of kit to use like the A6000, who knows.

    On paper it looks like a pretty good little camera. Interested to see how it actually preforms.! Not crazy about the design of it though. Kinda reminds me of the old nex cameras from sony.
