These Cheap Samsung Cameras are a Great First Mirrorless Investment

If you've been wanting to pick up a mirrorless camera to supplement your smartphone photography, Amazon has a great deal today on refurbished Samsung NX-series models. The NX300 will even shoot 3D with a special lens (sold separately)! This is a Gold Box deal, so these prices are only available today, or until sold out.

We got a great comment earlier today from a Lifehacker reader who owns the NX300, which I'll quote here:

Folks, check out those Samsung cameras. Their image quality, especially based on the cost of these cameras is really quite good.

I have been using an NX300 for a year now and have only good things to say about it. With this camera I am taking pictures as good or better than many entry- and mid-level DSLR's from the big brands. In addition to solid image quality, I am also getting a touchscreen, wifi connectivity, and great usability.

$270 for an NX300 is HUGE bargain. I believe that it will also come with Adobe Lightroom 4.0 which makes it an even better deal. Snap it up!
