Las Vegas – Samsung promised a new “hybrid” interchangeable lens camera with an APS-C-sized image at the PMA show. Like the micro Four Thirds cameras from Olympus and Panasonic, Samsung’s forthcoming model will not not have a reflex mirror (and thus is not technically a digital SLR).
Shedding the mirror allows the camera to be considerably smaller than a traditional digital SLR, Samsung said.
Details at press time were sparse but the model is expected to offer an APS-C sized sensor, an electronic viewfinder, and a live view LCD. It is due in the second half of the year.
