Samsung NX1 Review


When Samsung announced their top-end camera NX1 in September 2014 it gained much attention, much more than the other cameras and lenses before. Samsung took all their knowledge and implemented some unique features into this new body:

  • First 28-Megapixel back-side illuminated APS-C sensor with improved dynamic range and high ISO capabilities
  • 15 frames per second maximum shooting speed at full resolution with continuous AF
  • 4K video recording and storage using the H.265 codec

I got this camera (and the Samsung 16-50mm F2-2.8 S lens) for a month and used it in varying scenarios to evaluate the new capabilities. I’ll focus on the photography related functions and compare it with my Samsung NX30 and Phillip Reeve’s Sony A7.
