Samsung NX1

Originally reviewed by TrustedReviews 03 December 2014

Key features:

  • Outstanding image quality
  • Super-quick burst mode shooting
  • 4K video

Who's it for? Action photographers who want high-speed performance with less bulk – it has 15fps continuous shooting mode and is weather sealed.

The Samsung NX1 is a terrific camera that stands head and shoulders above most of the competition. It captures some of the best image quality we’ve ever seen from an APS-C camera, as well as excellent performance, powered by a new DRIMe V processor. Burst mode takes snaps at a rate of 15fps with continuous autofocus, which is really impressive, and it also shoots 4K video.

The 2.36 million-dot EVF is one of the best we’ve come across – it’s sharp and quick, offering focus peaking and 5x magnification too. The 3-inch touchscreen OLED display can be tilted, which is great for when the camera’s not at eye-level. This is also one of the first of its type to offer Bluetooth connectivity along with Wi-Fi and NFC.

However, at 138.5 x 102.3 x 65.8mm and 550g (without a lens attached), it’s hefty. Samsung’s premium S-class lenses are similarly weighty, meaning that the full setup could come in at well over a kilo. Some of the buttons on the rear are also too small and fiddly, but these are the only issues we’ve come across. It’s a brilliant machine.

Price: £1,299
