Samsung NX1 Debut
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.
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.
You might be into wildlife photography; or maybe exploring in the Arctic is your thing. Whatever it is, there’s no doubt that unbelievable photos often come with a little bit of adventure. For this reason, the NX1 is crafted using premium and robust materials. Its light, super strong magnesium-alloy body is dust and splash resistant, and offers remarkable protection in even the harshest of conditions.
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.
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.
