Positives Of Lightweight NX Cameras: Samsung NX500 04 Front Right

Samsung's latest generation of NX cameras are incredibly lightweight, yet still pack in all the latest technology to help you take stunning photos. Here, we run down some of the top reasons why having lightweight equipment is good for a photographer: 

No more carrying around a back breaking amount of kit - In the past, when you wanted to take good images, it often meant lugging around a large, heavy camera body, along with a range of hefty lenses too. This would put a strain on the photographer's back, causing all sorts of issues. Now though, the only kit you need is small enough to fit in your pocket in most cases. The NX500 only weighs 286g without a battery, which is amazing when you think about how much technology is in the camera.

Travel further - Having lighter kit will encourage you to walk that little bit further, as you're not weighed down by heavy gear. This could mean you find a stunning location that you wouldn't know existed if you gear wasn't so light. 

Lightweight camera = lightweight support - Having a lightweight camera will in-turn mean that your tripod or monopod can be lighter too, as it'll have less weight to bear. This means that you can downsize your support to a smaller, more compact model, as it won't have to bear the weight of a hefty DSLR.

Easier for travelling with - The weight and the smaller size of the NX range of cameras also mean that they're more friendly when it comes to travelling as they'll easily fit into your hand luggage, meaning you don't have to worry about them getting damaged in the hold, and their weight means that they'll take up less of your allowance, too.
