Summary: I am a serious amateur photographer who normally uses a Canon DSLR. I was attracted to the NX1000 because it has professional features like a 20 MP sensor that allows shooting at low light. It has proven to be an excellent "street camera." Many features appeal to me but the panoramic capability is one of the best. It did not take long to adjust to using the back of the camera to compose and focus instead of an optical viewfinder. Picture quality is superb.
Summary: I'm giving four instead of five stars because the camera doesn't let you WiFi photos at large resolutions. But if that feature is not important to you this is a five star camera. This is my first digital camera with removable lens. This allowed me to connect it to an adapter and use it with my 540mm focal length 101mm apochromatic refractor telescope.
Summary: This camera was exactly what i was looking for. A point and shoot with great image quality. Its super easy to use and I like the control I have over various photo features. I purchased this camera as a step into the world of manual digital photography with the ability to switch back to no hassle controls. The more I use this camera the more I discover. I would recommend this camera to fellow newbies!!!
