Here you can see Samsung's NX lens mount system. They currently offers three lenses for the NX10; the 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OIS, 30mm F2.0 and the 50-200mm F4.0-5.6 OIS zoom lens. The Imaging sensor seen in the center of the lens mount is an 23.4 x 15.6mm APS-C sized CMOS sensor, which is larger sensor than what is found in most EVIL (Electric Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras and is the same size of those found in most consumer dSLRs.

Because the NX10 uses a mirror-less system, this allows for a smaller camera body as well as smaller lenses. The CMOS sensor is also equipped with a "Super Sonic" dust control system to keep it clean by vibrating at 60,000 times a second literally "shaking off" any would be contaminants.

The Samsung 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 OIS lens comes packaged with the NX10. It has switches for auto/manual focus and for activating/deactivating the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) system inside the lens. Also seen in this picture is the release button used to swap out the lenses.

samsung_nx10_flash.jpgThe NX10 has a built in flash that has auto activation when in Smart Auto Mode. There is a "flash release" button to activate it in the other shooting modes. You can see the button in the above image (bottom right of the photo). Flash modes consist of: Auto, Smart Flash, Fill-In, Fill-In Red Eye, 1st. Curtain and 2nd Curtain; which options are available depends on which shooting mode you are in.
