Samsung NX Camera Archive

This is an inofficial mirror of the firmware, drivers and open-source downloads provided by Samsung for their excellent but discontinued NX series of mirrorless digital cameras. It only contains files that are strictly related to the NX cameras, and no third-party software.

There is no warranty for the provided files, their correctness or functionality!

If not versioned by Samsung, the file names have been extended with _v1.41 or _2014-11-14 based on the included version or the date of the newest file inside the archive. Matt Everglade has collected changelogs for camera firmware and lens changelogs.

Rationale

In the first half of the 2010s, Samsung created a great range of mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors, featuring modern electronics, Wi-Fi, touch screens and other awesome gimmicks. Then, around 2015, they silently exited from the market, and buried whatever was announced but not yet released.

In 2021, they discontinued the online services for the NX cameras, making it impossible to send images to social media, but also disabling the iLauncher tool for upgrading the camera firmware. Some of the firmware download URLs from over a decade ago are already 404.

It’s not clear for how long Samsung will still provide the respective firmware files from their official download pages, so this project aims at storing the relevant data in a central place.

Some of the archives have been directly downloaded from official Samsung servers, while others were provided by community members.
