The Samsung NX11 is Samsung's third mirrorless camera system - following on the heels of the NX10 and the NX100

Samsung has announced its third mirrorless camera system: the Samsung NX11.

The NX11 camera, which will become available in February 2011, is an updated version of the Samsung NX10 and boasts a 14.6Mp APS-C sensor.

It will be displayed at next month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where Which? researchers will be on hand to try out the model's new features.

Samsung NX i-Function lens

Among the most interesting new features on the Samsung NX11 is the introduction of the i-Function lens compatibility that was first seen on the Samsung NX100.

This allows users to access settings, such as aperture, shutter speed, white balance and ISO control through a button on the lens body. Samsung claims that this make it easier and quicker to configure the settings when shooting.
