The camera's 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor has been developed in-house by Samsung and delivers incredibly detailed images. It's no slacker either, with fast boot technology credited for its 100 millisecond advanced autofocus speed, and can shoot 7 frames per second continuously.

With rapid response time and image precision the technology in this camera is geared towards still images of rapidly moving objects and life-like colour, even in environments crippled by poor lighting.
The camera's wide range ISO helps to capture vibrant colour, ranging from 100-12,800 ISO, and covering seven steps.
If the photo you've captured isn't to your liking, the NX200 can take another photo within 400 milliseconds: that's 2.5 shots per second.
This high speed approach to capturing images is evident in its video capabilities, delivering Full HD (1920 x 1080) videos with stereo sound.
"With the NX range we have pioneered the compact system camera that allows any user to get the results that they've always wanted from their pictures without having to manage complicated controls or carry heavy, clunky equipment," said Myoung Sup Han, Samsung's VP and Head of the Digital Imaging Business.
"With technology like this built into a stylish and compact body, the NX200 is the ultimate tool for achieving professional quality in a compact camera.
