We are excited to see Samsung NX500 first-hand on its launching to know more of its features and performance capacity; if it can compete with the other range of mirrorless compact camera brands dominating the local market today. Samsung NX500 boasts the same DNA as the critically acclaimed Samsung NX1, which looks more than a DSLR than a compact camera.
This time, the Samsung NX500 has the feel of compact and perhaps the only gear you would be carrying for your photography adventures, coverage, and photo-shoots. Just like what top professional fashion and commercial photographer Xander Angeles is doing now.
Xander is a known photographer for almost 15 years who delves from film to digital cameras. It was a surprise to see him capturing great images which he presented during his Relentless, Forward, Progress photography exhibit held in The Atrium, SM Aura Premier on a Friday evening, with the Samsung NX500. He pulled it off. The images that we saw captured every single detail and characters of each personalities with active lifestyles like Ryan Agoncillo, Drew Arellano, Erwan Huessaff, Mateo Guidicelli, Benjamin Alves, Solenn Huessaff, Bianca King, ‘Kuya’ Kim Atienza, Rio dela Cruz, and a lot more who shared their moments for Xander’s photo exhibit.
“When I began thinking of a concept for this exhibit, I wanted it to be inspiring and very close to my heart. I decided to do something different and focus on the challenging passions of athletes, celebrities, and personalities. I wanted to capture the spirit of adventure and speed, such as people running, doing extreme sports, or testing the limits of their physique. Fortunately, the Samsung NX500 allowed me to take rich and vivid images of my subjects in action. It was good to see people having fun, doing what they love the most and I am very happy with the resulting photos taken,” Xander shares.
“We at Samsung are honored to be part of Xander’s aim to spread such a wonderful message that could inspire others to go further and push themselves beyond their comfort zones. Working with an incredible photographer like Xander proved that creative ideas, aided with the right material and equipment cans end a very powerful message. With the Samsung NX500, these photos are now brought to life,” said Samsung Category manager for Digital Imaging, Adriene Rivera.
3 key features of the Samsung NX500
The core feature is the 28.2 megapixel BSI APS-C Sensor that can produce vivid and crisp images. It has the first back-side illuminated APS-C sensor for a wider dynamic range and richer gradation. It can produce 14-bit RAW output during a single shooting mode. The Samsung NX500’s video recorder is built-in with 4K UHD video recording capability and an interval capture mode that will let the user take photos while shooting videos. Moreover, it can also take shots from different angles with the Tilt & Flip-Up screen through the FVGA AMOLED screen, also suitable for selfies.
Next, Samsung NX500 comes with the DRIMe 5 Imaging Processor, a powerful engine that processes 2.8 times faster than its predecessor. Its blazing fast All New Hybrid Autofocus System with on-surface phase detection makes fast speed shooting and precise focusing possible. This we can see through the series of action shots that Xander took for the photo exhibit.
The third part is the wireless connectivity. Sharing photos can be done instantly with the Samsung NX500’s wireless connection feature that makes it easy to transfer images from one device to another without need for a WiFi connection.
