Press Release:


London, UK –  12th March2013 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd today announced that the brand new NX300 is to feature Adobe® Lightroom 4 software. Combining the impressive feature set of the NX range with an array of post production tools included in Adobe® Lightroom, Samsung aims to offer the best in photography. 

Adobe® Lightroom 4 software provides a range of digital photography tools, enabling simple adjustments to advanced controls.
