Samsung has today lifted the lid on its latest compact system camera, the NX500.

Replacing the NX300, the NX500 includes a 28 megapixel back-side illuminated sensor, 4K video recording quality.

The camera’s body is also sized at 119.5 x 63.6 x 42.5mm without the lens, which makes it pretty portable, and slimmer that makes it easier to hold. Samsung has also repositioned the shutter button.

On the back the camera also has a display that can be flipped all the way around, making it well purposed for selfies. It also has touch controls and uses Samsung’s AMOLED technology.

In terms of other specs, the camera also has 30/25 fps capture at the standard 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution, or at 24fps DCI capture at a higher 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution.

Finally the camera has Wi-Fi, NFC.

The Samsung NX500 will be available in black, white and brown in the UK from March. As of yet no price has been revealed yet.
