My first SLR, the Pentax Spotmatic F, and my second, the Nikon F, were iconic cameras. They broke new ground and set new standards for their time. My gut tells me Samsung’s flagship NX1 mirrorless camera will be joining the list.
The NX1 ($1,499.99 for the body only) is Samsung’s first true professional-level interchangeable lens camera, and it comes loaded with cutting-edge features including: a 28.2 megapixel APS-C BSI CMOS sensor; 23.5 x 15.7mm internal 4K@24fps, 4K UHD@30fps and 1080p at up to 60fps (120 fps in 1080i); advanced hybrid autofocus system utilizing 205 phase-detect and 209 contrast-detection AF points; 100-25,600 native ISO range, expandable to 51,200; 76.6mm (3-inch) 1,036k-dot Super AMOLED touch screen; 10-12 stops of dynamic range; and H.265 video recording system with uncompressed 8-bit, 4:2:2, 4K output via HDMI.
