High-speed image processor DRIMe Vs

Meet the DRIMe Vs, Samsung’s fastest, most powerful image processor yet. It has the speed, performance and accuracy you need to shoot breathtaking photos or high quality video in a variety of shooting conditions.

Extremely fast and accurate NX AF System III

The NX500 has the power to capture life’s precious moments in amazing detail, thanks to an exceptionally fast NX AF System III that features hybrid auto focus. It has the perfect combo of speed and accuracy.

Capture 4K Video

The NX500 captures videos in unbeatable 4K resolution, providing 4 times the resolution of Full HD and improved clarity. Thanks to the new HEVC (H.265) codec, the NX500 lets you record in higher quality, while using only half the memory space required by H.264 codec systems.

Accurate shots every time

Samsung Auto Shot uses a predictive algorithm to track subject movement and automatically trigger the shutter at just the right moment. And with a variety of options, like baseball, jump, and trap, you’ll always be ready.

Easy sharing with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

The NX500 supports an advanced Wi-Fi standard for instant transfers of high-resolution photos. Together with Bluetooth and NFC, you get all the fast connectivity you need for easy sharing.

Dual command dials & hybrid UI

The NX500 features two independent command dials and a hybrid UI that includes both a touch screen and a range of buttons on the back, providing quick and easy access to all your key settings on the fly.

Comfortable to hold, easy to shoot

The NX500 fits beautifully in the palm of your hand, and features a slightly slanted shutter button that is easy to press. It gives you the perfect combination of steadiness and ergonomics you need for great shots.

Shoot from any angle

Just flip up or tilt the 3-inch display and you’re ready to shoot at almost any angle. You can tilt it 90° and rotate it 180°, and with Super AMOLED, you’ll always see the screen clearly—even outdoors in bright sunlight.

Capture brilliance with a burst of speed

Don’t miss a thing. With continuous shooting, you can capture a burst of images at 9 frames per second. And with the advanced AF system, it continuously focuses so you don’t lose detail as the subject moves.

Fast 1/6000s shutter speed

Precious moments can come and go in an instant. With a fast shutter speed of 1/6000 of a second, the NX500 can freeze and capture fast moving subjects with clarity.

ISO 100-25600 (Ext. 51200)

The NX500 shoots up to ISO 25600 (Ext. 51200), making it very sensitive to light. That means you can take great looking, natural shots in tricky lighting indoors or even outside at night, with minimal noise or blur.

Shoot with confidence even in low light

Thanks to a truly innovative technology called Adaptive Noise Reduction, the NX500 is capable of producing crystal clear images virtually free of noise, even set at a high ISO.

UHD-quality time lapse shots

Take time-lapse shots like a pro. The NX500 can capture clouds moving or a flower blooming in high-res stills. You can adjust the interval between 1 second and 24 hours, and it even converts the stills to UHD quality video.
