Samsung offers own take on DSLR miniaturization

Samsung mini DSLR coming

Following almost a month behind Olympus' and Panasonic's Micro Four Thirds camera system announcement, Samsung unveiled plans for a similar system with interchangeable lenses and its internally-manufactured 14MP APS-C sensor. Amateur Photographer reveals that Samsung's project is allegedly dissimilar from the Micro Four Thirds system, with the company claiming to have been working on this system for some time.

The aim of the project is the same: to reduce overall lens and camera body size, while maintaining a professional level of quality for the images it produces. Prototypes of Samsung-manufactured lenses are currently being tested.

Samsung will reportedly not abandon its current GX DSLR cameras, but will look to compliment them with the "hybrid" system instead. The company expects to release the new models in 2010.
