Samsung NX1 Review – Verdict

Samsung NX1 product shot 3

Samsung NX1

While Samsung has continued to make waves in the consumer electronics market in recent years, it still hadn’t managed to gain a huge amount of ground in the world of photography despite introducing a range of models well suited to the consumer market.

The NX1 looks set to change all of that however, thanks to the combination of some truly class-leading technology in a body which is as good as any in its class. The 15fps continuous shooting speed at the full 28MP resolution is really excellent, while 4K video capture, amazing AF performance and a range of connectivity options look set to complete the package.

Throw in the fact that the sensor is capable of out performing any in its class in terms of resolution and you start to understand why we think the NX1 is set to compete with some of the very best digital cameras on the market.
