Samsung NX1000 review: performs as good as it looks
8 March 2014
Conclusion: Yet there are similar rivals out there in roughly the same price range that deliver just as much, if not more. Cameras are expensive items, and the one you purchase should be usable for at least a couple of years.
Excerpt: The Samsung NX1000 is a new system camera with interchangeable lens to Samsung NX Mount features an APS-C 20.3 MP (custom made for this system) and integrated WiFi connectivity for sharing images directly.
Pros: 3D Panorama, 20.3 MP APS-C sensor; Features Smart Auto 2.0; Filamto Stereo Full HD 1080p; Wide range ISO (12800, 7 steps); Samsung NX Mount System, I-Function 2.0, integrated WiFi (Smart Link).
Excerpt: A camera with the features and functionality of a DSLR in a smaller body and with Wi-Fi connectivity? Sign us up. The NX1000 has a 20.3MP sensor and comes bundled with a sharp zoom lens that produces great pictures in all lighting situations. Including night shots.
Summary: Samsung has just announced three brand new NX System, interchangeable lens cameras for 2012, the NX20 , NX210 , and NX1000. Despite the NX1000's compact size, it has many of the same performance features as the NX20 and NX210.
Pros: Smart Auto shooting mode is accurate and easy in all situations, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, WiFi allows a multitude of useful controls and features, Great image quality, Optical Image Stabilization is available on some lenses, Nice, Bright 3.0-inch LCD, HDMI output,...
Cons: AF system on our unit was either slow or not working correctly, Very noisy images when ISO is over 1600, Removable flash can be easy to forget
Summary: The Samsung NX1000 is the lower-end model of the Korean giant’s newest line of interchangeable lens cameras, which marks it as cheaper and less featured. But don’t take it as a bad stride; this camera has no shortage of substance, and its cheaper price point makes it still very desirable.
Pros: Great image quality, Wi-Fi connectivity, Nifty features
Summary: Our devices are getting smarter, and can most times do more than just their primary role. Yes, even beyond our smartphones and tablets (and PC’s of course) – almost every gadget is a multi-tasker, it would seem.
Summary: I find it a little strange that Samsung has three cameras in its NX range that all feature the same 20.3-million-pixel sensor, metering and AF system. In many respects there is little to choose between them, especially the NX210 and NX1000, apart from differences in build quality.
