Samsung NX10 DSLR Camera to Soon Support i-Function Lenses (Video)

October 12, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Samsung has announced that its NX10 DSLR camera will soon be providing support for the innovative i-Function lens system. The company will be integrating the technology in all of its upcoming NX-system lenses.

The i-Function lens technology, which initially worked with NX100 only, will now also work with NX10 and NX5. This support for the technology comes via a simple firmware update for the NX10 (v1.20) and NX5 (v1.10). Both the cameras will now get the same camera-controlling feature that allows users to adjust aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance right from the lens.

There will be a one-touch button that will allow users to access a graphical representation of the particular setting and value, which can be changed by rotating the manual focus ring on the lens.

Furthermore, the firmware update also promises to deliver faster auto-focus speeds. Users can also enable Lens Distortion Compensation, a processing tool that is claimed to help reduce image distortion.

The new firmware also brings external GPS compatibility and supports compact zoom 20-50mm lens and small 20mm wide-angle Pancake lens with an updated UI.
