Samsung NX500 shown as discontinued
The Samsung NX500, which launched in the U.S. early last year, is shown as discontinued on B&H Photo, which may indicate that the camera is no longer being manufactured. However, it's still available from Samsung's website and Amazon. If the NX500 has indeed reached the end of its life, it would mark Samsung's latest move away from the camera market following the company's recent discontinuation of the NX1 model in Germany and the UK.
Late last year, rumors surfaced claiming Samsung had discontinued its NX1 mirrorless camera model in Europe. Soon after, Samsung representatives confirmed the model has been discontinued in the UK and Germany, citing a 'gradual decline in demand for standalone digital cameras.' Adorama now shows steep discounts for the NX1 model, marking the body-only unit down $450 to $1,049 and the NX1 with 16-50mm power zoom lens a full $500 cheaper at $1,199.
We've reached out to Samsung for confirmation and will update this story when we hear back.
