It appears that one of Samsung's newest camera devices to be released at IFA 2011, the NX200, has received a bit more attention than the rest of the publishing world was allowed at the event - photos ahoy! While we were given a short opportunity to see the new NX200 and its billion different possibilities for lenses, a mister John P over at GeekBeat got an extended look, including, lets say it one more time, sample photos and video, which he then got to take home and play around with. This camera is a kingly little beast, with interchangeable lenses galore, a 20.3 megapixel rating, and a relatively small frame at 4.6 x 2.46 x 1.44 inches. Sound like the little lady for you?

If there's one thing that Zuckerberg hates, it's Instagram. Actually I'm pretty sure he's not the least vengeful fellow in the bunch, but at the moment it appears that one of the groups Facebook is about to take on is, indeed, the photo filtering group itself. If you're a frequenter of Facebook, and if you're reading this article I must assume that you are, you know that one of the most popular activities on the social networking site is sharing photos.
