Customer reviews and ratings

Samsung NX300 20.3MP Smart Compact System Camera - Black. 4.2 5 5 5
Excellent for carrying along. I am very happy with its features and the image quality. One thing is missing though, a viewfinder. Still, it's a super camera. 22 February 2014
Excellent product, but still missing potential. This is a very well made camera. The build quality is superb, and the photos it can take are stunning. The on-board quick photo editing suites are excellent if you can make the right use for them. One of my favourite software features is the Wi-Fi sharing, but this is where there is a lack of fuffilled potential. As of writing this review, on Sunday the 19th of January, The Wi-Fi sharing capabilities are hindereied by the lack of places to share to. You can share photos and videos to Facebook, Picasa, Youtube and Skydrive. While these will suffice for the moment, there are many places that the camera should be able to share to, such as Dropbox, Google drive, or any of the other similar cloud services. Along with other social media sites, such as Twitter, Google+, and Tumblr. I am happy with all of the pictures I have taken with this camera, because of how well done both the hardware and software (image processing) have been made. Overall, This product is one of the best cameras I have used. Congratulations to samsung for the amazing product. (Other features worth mentioning that I haven't had too much need for use of or have had enough experience to review fully but have been excellent when I have used them: Articulating Screen, AMOLED Screen, Built in Lens i-Function.) Photos Below Captured and edited only with On-board software. (Can't wait to start editing with the included Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software!) 19 January 2014
amazing camera and quality amazing quality pictures every time, can't beat it! amazing camera would recommend it to everyone. 22 September 2013
Use the camera Don't just leave this in 'auto' mode although you will still get excellent pictures, it is well worth spending an hour or two with the downloaded information from Samsung and getting to know the workings of the camera really well. I did this and my first purchase afterwards was a tripod. I now go out and look at things with an eye to composition rather than just 'snap and shoot.', not that there is anything wrong with doing just that, this camera will accommodate both disciplines. Just using 'auto' mode is like buying a Jag and then tooling around in first gear, opening it up will give you the full experience, same with the NX300, open it up and see what it, and you, can do. 19 September 2013

I note that you seemingly have two identical items on the website for VERY differing prices:-

Samsung NX300 20.3MP Smart Digi Camera - Brown.
Samsun NX300 20.3MP Smart Compact System Camera - Black

The prices differ and one is show with a flash and the other without.

What is the real difference in these products and does the latter come with a flash even thought the picture does not show one?

Please respond
