About Samsung NX1000

Samsung NX1000 20.3 Megapixel Compact System Camera. Style and Perfection, All in One.
Introducing the 20.3 megapixels Samsung Smart Camera NX1000 with 1/4000 fast shutter and Built-in

20.3MP APS-C Sensor
Customized for the NX System, the brand-new, professional-grade, 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor produces images that rival those of any premium DSLR. Each individual pixel has a large sensor area and receives more light, guaranteeing low noise levels, high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation. The higher sensitivity allows you to shoot during low-light situations without graininess or other noise. The new sensor also provides Full HD video output capabilities.

1/4000 Fast Shutter
Shutter speed can make the difference between capturing an iconic image and missing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The NX1000's 1/4000 shutter speed gives you the flexibility to shoot like the pros at varying speeds and light exposures. The NX1000's shutter even automatically adjusts itself as it senses environmental factors such as temperature and camera direction. And the electronically controlled focal-plane shutter reduces exposure errors.

High Speed Capture
The NX1000 features super-fast High Speed Capture capabilities provide an simple yet sophisticated way to capture images in total focus. The ultra-high speed Auto Focus (AF) that can rival almost any system camera and is core component of the system. The result is a fast and precise AF System that captures life's fleeting moments. And with a sequential rate of 8fps, capturing fast-moving objects in perfect clarity are no longer a challenge.

Discover the True Beauty of HD Video
Built with 1080 30p Full HD movie recording capabilities, the NX1000 transforms shooting video with a still camera into an art form.Choose from a wide range of viewing angles and zoom with confidence. The mirrorless CMOS image sensor offers precise auto focus evenwhile you shoot. For a truly cinematic experience, the NX System has been fitted with an 18-200mm lens exclusively for Full HD video.

Instant Sharing via Wi-Fi
The NX1000's Wi-Fi connectivity lets you connect your digital camera to a wireless network. Save photos and videos directly to a computer or cloud service while you shoot, email them, print them wirelessly, or upload them straight to Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. You'll never have to worry about losing a great shot, running out of storage space, or remembering to bring the right cablealong.

Premium Metal Design
The NX1000 packs the power of a professional-grade digital camera within a sleek and compact design. Its ergonomically crafted exterior fits perfectly within your hand, while the topside design feels solid and looks just as sturdy. The NX System gets its charming good looks through the perfect combination of modern metallic styling and classic clean lines. On the inside, the large CMOS Sensor replaces any mirrors for a smaller camera body. The lightweight body makes it more portable and easier to shoot in a variety of angles and positions, making it the ultimate professional-grade camera that you can carry in your pocket.

Smart Filter 2.0 and Selective Color
Smart Filter 2.0 options make it easy to create special moods. Choose the Tilt & Shift Lens Effect for a miniaturized look, the Vignetting Effect for striking contrasts, Half-Tone Dot for a comic-book look, and more. With the Selective Color feature, you can even choose the colors you want to emphasize.

Even indoors or at night, you can create images with minimal noise, rich tonal gradations and faithful colors=without a flash. You'll also capture clearer, crisper images of fast-moving objects.

NX1000 system camera

I have 20-50, 50-200 zoom lens and 16mm wide angle. All are great, easy to use, small. The camera is small, the lens easy to change and beats carrying a large heavy SLR for long hikes. A GPS module is available, not built in but goes on the hot shoe. The carry-all case doesn't quite do that. It's adequate for the camera with a lens, a secondary lens and the charger and spare battery. There is NO room for extras. While the camera is very good the user's manual is the pits. It's next to useless...

Surprisingly good!


from Bozeman, MT

When you think of quality cameras, you often think of Canon or Nikon first. However, this camera easily matches the quality and features of other cameras for this price. My only complaint is that it takes too much time to process images after shooting them; that being said, it works very well for still photography, where you can afford some waiting.


This camera is by far , the best camera that I ever have .


from weymouth ma

I never expect the camera to be able to take picture with all the effects that you can get in the photo shop software . I'm very impress with the size and the capacity .


Better than I expected


from Peru

I bought this camera some time ago. I have always been interested in photography but I didn't want to spend too much in a camera since I'm a beginner. I started looking over the web to try to find a good camera with a nice quality/performance/price relation. Coincidentally, this camera appeared in one of the pages where I use to buy my stuff. So I decided to give it a chance, the price was excellent and after reading a couple of reviews online the camera looked powerful enough to start learning. After some months of use, I can say that I'm really satisfied with this camera, it's my companion to every family reunion and trip around my city. It has a nice performance, the only thing that I would recommend is getting another extra battery if you're planning long photo sessions and maybe buying a 200 mm lens that is sold separately and I have missed a couple of times.


Solid camera


from Oakland

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. It worked really well and I have some great detailed shots of the San Francisco waterfront area and some ship traffic from a dock in Oakland. I also like the special effect filters that come in the camera. It connects well to an ipad and the auto adjust feature on the iPhoto app worked perfectly to color balance the telescope lens shots, which the camera couldn't do by itself since it wasn't designed to be used with my telescope. All I all, I got everything I wanted.


Professional Point 'n Shoot


from Florida

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. Ease of use is important with a new camera and this one excels. The 16 mm wide angle lens is just right for the kind of shots I often take. My next purchase is the 50-200 mm tele lens. Overall, it is a heck of a buy.


Great Camera


from Massachusetts

Takes great pictures. I would definitely recommend this camera to friends. Easy to use features.

new world at night


from egypt

very nice design i must begin with,2nd its WiFi sharing skills (after update firmware),i am very happy with my purchase i bought it with good price+camera case all these advantages not compare to its night performance 30 sec shutter speed delay make my night like a day light i captured a photos my ayes cant see and i used 20 mm kit lenses really i am surprised with this performance nice jop Samsung. although it has some times a slow AF at nigh but MF is more helper then.i wish Samsung lower the price of other lenses type it will rock with NX1000


Alot of features


from Baltimore, MD

I have had this camera for about a month and I have not went through all the features. It seems like everyday I discover something else I can do. I have not had any problems so far.


The best affordable mirrorless camera.


from Uruguay

Meet and exceed my expectations. Intuitive and easy-to-use user interface. Quality product. It was love at first sight.
