Samsung today announced the GALAXY NX, the world's first ILC (interchangeable lens camera) with LTE, 3G/4G, and WiFi connectivity. In other words, Samsung has built an entry-to-mid level ILC that runs off the Android operating system just like your Galaxy smartphone or tablet. Not only can you choose from "an entire universe of Android apps" -- apps to help edit and and special effects to 20.3 megapixel images and Full HD video -- but you can then instantly share your final product anywhere at blazing speeds to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and more.

With a 1/6000 sec shutter speed and 8.6fps high speed continuous shooting, you might think the GALAXY NX is only for experienced pros. Worry not. If you've ever used a Google smartphone, you already know how easy the menus are to navigate. Plus, Samsung includes a number of newbie-friendly features such as Photo Suggest, which suggests places to take great pictures based on your location; Story Album, which allows you to create customized digital photo books; an Advanced Hybrid Auto Focus (AF) System; Camera Studio, which lets users customize settings on their most frequently used apps or modes; and 30 Smart Modes.

What are Smart Modes? Here are three examples: "Multi Exposure merges two different shots together to produce one distinctive image, while Animated Photo connects continuous shots of up to five seconds, creating a moving GIF file. For added realism, Sound & Shot stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken, so moments are captured exactly as they happened."
