from £1.50 per month


Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

The portable high-performance Samsung NX3000 SMART Compact System Camera with 16-50 mm Wide Angle Zoom Lens teams retro-styling with cutting-edge technology, and offers a range of ways to wirelessly share your photos with integrated WiFi and NFC.

Professional-grade results

The Samsung NX3000 SMART Camera features a large 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor that shoots high-resolution images and Full HD video with delicate detailing and realistic colour.

The camera's superior image processor and 25-point autofocus lets you quickly capture spontaneous moments and memorable shots with ease.

Your images will look natural in any light conditions as the Samsung NX3000 Compact System Camera lets you shoot across a wide ISO range with low noise and minimal blurring, even in badly lit conditions.

Auto and manual control

The Samsung NX3000 SMART Camera hosts Smart Auto and Aperture or Shutter Priority, as well as full manual focus so you can achieve the shot you want.

Unleash your creative flair with the NX3000 - take advantage of continuous shooting at 5 fps to capture a set of incredibly clear stills or set the shutter speed to its lowest setting of 30 seconds for a long exposure.

Shoot and share

With integrated WiFi sending your photos and videos directly to Facebook, YouTube, email and other social platforms is easy when using the Samsung NX3000 SMART Camera.

NFC (Near Field Communication) opens up even more sharing opportunities such as Photo Beam that allows you to send a copy of a photo to a friend by tapping the camera with their NFC-enabled smartphone. You can also use WiFi-based Group Share to send shots to up to four people at once.

Samsung camera app

The SMART CAMERA app for Android and iOS integrates three existing Samsung apps for total convenience, giving you access to AutoShare, MobileLink and Remote Viewfinder.

With WiFi and NFC, AutoShare automatically sends every photo you take to your smartphone or tablet and it also GPS tags them too.

With the NFC-enabled Remote Viewfinder function you can control the NX3000 with your smartphone, making setting up group shots easier than ever.

With MobileLink it's easy to send photos or whole albums to all of your devices via NFC. You can control the album on your phone and any changes will be saved on your camera.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4

With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 you can enjoy comprehensive photo editing tools that allow for sophisticated image manipulation.

The impressive software gives you the ability to make inspiring adjustments, target certain areas, experiment with filters and more.

Striking design

The Samsung NX3000 SMART Camera lets you rapidly navigate your shooting options on the 3.0” screen using the control dial.

The easy-to-use screen flips up to 180 degrees, enabling you to frame tricky low- or high-angled shots without uncomfortably positioning your body. The flip screen is also perfect for self portraits and the intelligent Wink Shot snaps a photo with the wink of an eye.

The design of the Samsung NX3000 SMART Camera is inspired by older cameras and it offsets a strong and lightweight metal construction with a vintage textured panelling.

Memory cards

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

The Samsung NX3000 SMART Compact System Camera with 16-50 mm Wide Angle Zoom Lens offers an attractive combination of state-of-the-art imaging technology, convenient connectivity and unique styling.
