Samsung NX1 review: Mirrorless camera takes on midrange dSLRs for action shooting -- and wins


Fast, sturdy, well-designed and with excellent photo quality, the Samsung NX1 hits all the bases.

The Samsung NX1 is fast, well-designed, weather resistant and feature-packed, and it produces great photos and videos.

There's no charger included, and USB charging takes longer than we'd like. Plus, it could use tracking autofocus when you're shooting via the viewfinder.

Fast, sturdy, well-designed and with excellent photo quality, the Samsung NX1 hits all the bases for action-shooting enthusiasts.

Samsung NX1 Review


Very good, high-resolution image quality; Excellent high ISO performance with RAW files; Very good dynamic range; Blazing fast 15fps full-res burst mode; Deep buffer; Great build quality & comfortable ergonomics; Lots of physical controls; Great...

Continuous AF performance still not as robust as competing DSLRs; Aggressive JPEG noise reduction at high ISOs; JPEG colors and saturation less pleasing at higher ISOs; H.265 video codec can be difficult to work with.

On most fronts, the Samsung NX1 is a tremendous camera, with excellent DSLR-like ergonomics and controls, impressive photo and video quality and great performance. The NX1 does falter somewhat with continuous autofocus performance, but overall, it is a...

Samsung NX1 Review: A Mirrorless Camera Packing Heat But Lacking Glass


Samsung sells a crapload of cameras all around the world. But not for pros. At $1500, the new NX1 is the first Samsung cam packing enough power to be taken seriously by photography enthusiasts. It shoots 4K video and fires off super fast 15...

Flagship compact system camera challenges DSLRs via 28 megapixel photos and 4K video

Eye-level viewfinder ; Lightweight yet sturdy feel ; Fast and accurate response

Premium asking price ; Less lenses are available ; Bulky alternative to a DSLR

Samsung NX1 review: The new-age DSLR successor?


After wrapping up its Pentax clone GX-series DSLR line in 2009, Samsung has spent time furrowing its own path back into the camera market with its NX-series compact system cameras. The latest of which, the Samsung NX1, isn't afraid of going large: it's...

Image quality is really good, super-fast 15fps burst mode, responsive touchscreen, decent battery life, quick access mode dials and controls, tilt-angle screen

Tizen has some stability issues, big and expensive, screen colours misrepresentative, autofocus not infallible, Auto Shot lacks full potential, ISO 6400 lacks detail

Although the Samsung NX1 kills the very notion of "compact" system camera, it's still a solid slice of kit with plenty to shout about.

Fast, feature-packed and massively capable, the Samsung NX1 is an unbridled success

There's a risk that the NX1's wireless features serve more to complicate than simplify the process. We had to install three Android apps, two of which ran constantly on our Android phone, and which seemed to drain the phone's battery. Launching the...

Built for speed and responsiveness, the Samsung NX1 has a 28.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and the company’s DRIMe V processor that drives both 4K video and a full-resolution still image shooting rate of 15 frames per second, all with AF. Viewing is via a...

Samsung NX1


If there's something to say about Samsung and its camera range, it's that they take improvement seriously. That's why it's not too difficult to note that the NX1 is the best camera Samsung has made to date.

4K video/ very fast shooting/ handles well/ great connectivity

Auto focus not always that fast/ buttons at back a bit flush

There is no doubt that the NX1 is Samsung’s best camera yet, being not only a good choice on the mirrorless front (competing head-on with the Olympus E-M1 and the Fujifilm X-T1), but also that of Nikon and Canon on the DSLR side. There is no doubt that...

Samsung NX1


A high-resolution interchangeable-lens camera, with fast autofocusing and continuous shooting plus extensive connectivity options, reviewed with the latest firmware update.

Samsung is a relative newcomer to the enthusiasts' camera market and appears to be struggling to gain traction at a time when camera sales have slowed or, in some cases, declined. However, in the NX1 the company has created a camera that is...
