Samsung SMART CAMERA NX1 Official Introduction
Extremely fast AF system - Speed is everything
Samsung's NX1 camera is ready to capture life as it happens. Thanks to 205 phase-detection points and 209 contrast-detection points, the NX AF System III covers an incredible 90% of the sensor area. This super-wide AF area is superior to those in digital SLRs. With 15 frames-per-second (fps) capture speed, it can track and capture moments that you don’t even see coming. This isn’t for a short burst, either. Up to 70 full resolution JPEG images can be captured at a time, so even the fastest-moving action won’t get away from you.
The NX1 has a variety of AF features, including one that’s great for stills with moving subjects and one that’s perfect for movies. Active AF can detect when your subject starts moving and will automatically switch to a continuous mode, while Movie AF uses quick phase autofocus to give you faster focus and reduce wobbling.
Ultra high detail
Great photography relies on your ability to capture the little things, like colours and tiny details that you barely noticed. With a 28MP APS-C CMOS Sensor, which is supported by Back Side Illumination (BSI), the NX1 camera delivers rich colours, impressive detail and 14-bit Raw files even in low light. And the extra power of 4K and UHD video recording gives you four times the resolution and four times the detail of Full HD.
Shoot with confidence even in low light
Shooting in low light with a high ISO is no challenge at all for the NX1, thanks to a truly innovative technology called Adaptive Noise Reduction driven by the powerful DRIMe V image processor. Even set at a high ISO of 25600 (Ext. 51200), the NX1 is capable of producing crystal clear images virtually free of noise, giving you the confidence to push the limits and capture incredibly crisp photo in low light environments.
Breathtaking 4K UHD video recording
Powered by Samsung’s DRIMe V image processor, the NX1 lets you record in true 4K video. You get 4 times the resolution and 4 times the details of Full HD for every movie you shoot. It even supports the highly efficient HEVC (H.265) format which lets you capture extreme details while only using half the memory space typically consumed by the conventional H.264 codec. And with the Samsung Multimedia Converter PC software that comes with purchase5, HEVC encoded video files can be easily converted into ProRes 422 format so you can edit freely.
Lifelike and realistic EVF as quick as your eye can see
The NX1 lets you see and compose your shots with unbelievable speed with an OLED Electronic View Finder that comes on in a virtually instantaneous 0.005 seconds. ¹ Not only that, the EVF gives you a clean and wide view that reproduces the naturally sharp feel of optical viewfinders so prized by the pros. It’s also been ergonomically designed to fit the shape of your eye for added comfort and usability. 4
Capture fast-moving action with 1/8000 sec. shutter speed
With a powerful shutter capable of shooting at up to 1/8000 seconds, the NX1 can freeze and capture some of the fastest moving subjects with exquisite clarity. And the shutter has been rigorously tested to withstand 150000 shots, even when performing at its top rate of 15 frames per second.
Crafted from highly durable magnesium alloy
The NX1 is built to deliver heart-stopping photography at blazing fast speeds. It’s also built for durability and goes anywhere with ease. The NX1 is fully crafted from highly durable magnesium alloy, giving you the firm, rigid structure you would expect from the most premium cameras. Despite the light weight and portable size, the NX1 is one tough camera that you can rely on in any environment.
Constructed to be dust and splash resistant
Every passing moment can be photo-worthy, but it’s not always sunny out there. That’s why the NX1 was built with a dust and splash resistant structure. It’s ready to perform even when your surroundings are dusty or wet, so the next time you feel the inspiration but the weather isn’t perfect, you can rest assured that your investment will stay protected.6
Convenient top-mounted LCD status display window
The NX1 comes with a top-mounted LCD status display window that shows all your current camera setting values, putting all your key settings and information precisely where you’d expect them to be on a top-of-the-line camera. With a quick glance, it gives you the full control you need to take the exact photo you envisioned in your mind.
Share anytime, anywhere with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
The NX1 supports the latest Wi-Fi standard, IEEE 802.11ac, boasting speeds faster than 802.11n. With the power to do quick data transfers, high resolution photos and videos can be shared in a snap. And with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC capabilities all together, you get the full range of fast connectivity needed for easy sharing to your devices such as your smartphone.
Perfectly timed shots every time
Sometimes it’s hard to get the timing of your shots right. Samsung Auto Shot helps with a highly advanced predictive algorithm that tracks subject movement, automatically triggering the shutter at the right time. There is even a baseball mode, so can finally get that shot of your favourite batter hitting the ball out of the park.
An ergonomic grip for precise control
The NX1 provides the ultimate grip comfort. It has rubber-like skin, with a grip that anchors the NX1 perfectly to your hand, allowing you to focus purely on your photography.
Samsung lenses are great for capturing detail; especially the new Samsung 50-150mm F2.8 S ED OIS Premium S Telephoto Zoom Lens and the 16-50mm F2-2.8 Premium S Zoom lens. Both lenses are perfect companions to the NX1, with a wide aperture throughout the focal range, extra-low dispersion (ED) elements and one Xtreme High Refractive (XHR) element, plus an Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS), it’s a highly capable lens with a fast and quiet autofocusing performance.
A lens for every occasion
Any system camera is only as good as the lenses that support it and the Samsung NX range is one of the most comprehensive available for any compact system camera, with the current line-up totaling 18 optics. With eight zooms, seven prime (single focal length) lenses and three specialist optics to choose from, you’re sure to find one to suit your shooting requirements. Boasting craftsmanship of the highest level, they deliver stunning clarity, beautiful colours, and amazing contrast.
