Your camera does not have an interchangeable lens. The current lens is permanently fixed to the camera, and you can't change it to use another one. If you want to be able to swap lenses, you need to have an interchangeable lens camera.

I'm pretty sure you're out of luck. Samsung made one mount adapter, the ED-MA9NXK, for Pentax K mount — probably because before NX, Samsung made a few Pentax-compatible cameras and lenses. But even that doesn't have autofocus. And, while there are plenty of third-party manual-only adapters, I don't think there are any AF-capable ones — and, since NX is ...

NiMH batteries have a fully charged voltage that is lower than a standard alkaline AA. A partially discharged NiMH battery (or an NiMH battery that's been stored for a while) will have an even lower voltage. For occasional use I'd recommend getting some Lithium AA batteries. They're relatively expensive, but their energy density is high, and their self-...

In order for the camera to fire, a small spring loaded connection has to be pushed in far enough. If you take off the lens and look in the exact opposite direction of the red dot, you will see a small metal point sticking out. That is it. The challenge is to ensure that the T2 mount you purchase is designed specifically for the Samsung NX range of cameras....

First you need to check your camera settings. This could be something as simple as slipping the camera into manual mode and over exposing. Can you replicate the bright white with the lens fully covered by a lens cap? If yes then you have something electronically wrong with your camera and you need to call Samsung for service. Is the camera in automatic ...

Since the Samsung NX system is dead, your best bet will probably be to try and find a part scavenged from another example of the same lens. You might get lucky on eBay, but you'll probably need to know the part number. Finding a catalogue number online is pretty much impossible without knowing which specific lens you're talking about. The fly in the ...

The "Red Eye Reduction" flash setting causes several bright flashes before the photo is taken, with the intention of closing the pupils of people in the photo, reducing the chance of reflection from their retina, which causes the red eye problem. When there is nobody looking at that flash, that effect doesn't happen. It won't hurt the photo, but it wastes ...

Generally you should use a remote shutter release to hold the shutter open for a prolonged period. This also prevents camera-shake that is usually associated with touching the camera while taking a long exposure. Several options are available from simple lockable switches to complex intervalometers. Each have their own advantages but to get started a cheap ...

Is there any way to get the stuff out from under my lens? I'm open to any ideas, even taking it apart. A non-invasive method should be the first thing you try. I'd wrap the camera in a couple layers of paper towel and then cover the towel-wrapped camera in (dry, uncooked) rice. Try to orient the camera so that gravity will keep the liquid off the lens as ...

So can I use the cheaper Sony intervalometer on the Samsung camera? No, you cannot. While the Sony multi-terminal connector looks like it's micro-USB, it isn't, really. doc-diy.net's list of shutter release pinouts has an image of the connector, and its wiring is nothing like a micro USB connector. It has an additional 10 pins (15 in all) vs. the standard ...

Same as any other camera. It's two fish eye lenses mounted back to back. Take an instantaneous single shot or take a movie. Your choice. It's a tool if you NEED 360 pictures. A toy if you don't. For most people I suspect it's a toy, and quite an expensive one.

The general answer is "neither", but it depends entirely on what your target audience is. If you know that your target audience will be using a particular device, it is fine to mix for that device specifically, but for general release, this is why color spaces and standards exist. If you adjust your color on a well calibrated display in a standard color ...

Your camera's main lens is permanently attached to your camera and is not considered interchangeable. There are some non-interchangeable lens cameras with filter threads on the front of the lens that can be used to attach "close up filters" or "wide angle filters" that allow one to focus at a closer minimum distance for macro work or allow a wider field of ...

If the lens cover is not visibly damaged/polluted, and it is not a focusing issue rooted in your composition habits, the assumption with any camera (from smartphone to DSLR) showing such problems is that there are tilting or decentering issues - vulgo, a lens element or the sensor got knocked out of whack. It could also be a defective optical stabilization ...

As may know, Samsung has completely closed their camera division. There are no parts or accessories currently available for any Samsung digital camera. I downloaded the owner's manual from Samsung, and the list of accessories on pg 13 did not have any kind of remote control shown. You'll need to buy a different camera.

The problem seems to be with the way you are storing the batteries. Batteries are good old analog chemical devices. Many chemical reactions, including the various chemistries used in most types of consumer batteries, are affected by temperature. If the glovebox is very hot or very cold (say, approaching above 40ºC or below 0ºC) it will alter the chemistry ...

It looks like your shutter gets stuck. Switching on and off opens it, but it gets stuck close afterwards.Remove you lens. Does the shutter is closed or open? I have an NX2000 here that also has a shutter problem. I do not have a solution yet.

I have been trying to fix my NX300 for over a year with this same issue.I talked to several support people at Samsung and didn't get a resolution, and was getting very frustrated. Finally, Joshua at Samsung walked me thru a firmware/bodyware update which was NOT easy to do, but fixed the problem. You have to first install the update to your camera, but ...

Did you try a factory reset ? Normally there is a way ( described in manual ) to completely reset a camera to out-of-the-box settings. Have you tried to start it without a lens, in case the lens ( or mount ) is an issue ? Did you at any point try to upgrade the firmware, as an incomplete firmware upgrade would "brick" the device. Check the battery ...

The manual doesn't mention a procedure for doing a hard reset. The menu option leaves the date, time, language and video output settings alone. So you can use the menu option, and then change the date/time, language separately, or you can remove the battery for a period of time and hope for the best.

In many cameras, to get this to work, you enable "release without lens" in the camera menu. However, this doesn't seem to be available in the case of the Samsung NX300. According this this thread on DPReview, "Your adapter just has to depress the mechanical switch in the lens mount. Some adapters are problematic, most are fine." If the adapter you have is ...

Since your camera doesn't have an external port for an intervalometer nor does any external software currently support the intervalometer function on your series of cameras, the answer is simple: you can't.
