[Video] Samsung NX1 Review – In a class of its own

Digital Photography Review is a well established and respected Photography enthusiast site that was founded back in 1998, and which specializes in reviews of consumer digital cameras. Recently they have got hands on with the Tizen based Samsung NX1 Smart Camera and have carried out a full in-depth review, which is what they are famous for. This was a production Samsung NX1 running the latest firmware 1.22.

Samsung is still a relative newcomer to the high end prosumer camera market, but it seems to have pulled all the stops when designing the NX1 – with impressive results – Dpreview

The NX1 has some stiff competition in the form of the Nikon D7200, Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Panasonic DMC-GH4 and Fujifilm X-T1. All these cameras have their pros and cons, and the NX1 has it own special blend of tricks to bring to the table.
