Review: Samsung NX1 4K Mirrorless Compact System Camera

September 4th, 2015 · 4 Comments · 2160p, Digital Camera/Camcorder, Digital Cameras, HDMI, HDR, Product Reviews, Review, UHDTV

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 […]
