The Samsung NX1000 is a new entry-level mirrorless compact system camera. The plastic-bodied NX1000 features a 20.3 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, high speed capture and fast auto focusing, ISO range of 100-12,800, 1080p HD movie recording, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, 3-inch LCD screen, 8fps continuous shooting, Sweep Panoramas and Samsung’s unique i-Function lens. The i-Function button on compatible lenses allows users to control the NX1000 by scrolling through manual settings (shutter speed, aperture, EV, WB, and ISO) and using the focus ring to change the parameters for each setting. The NX1000 also has a special i-Scene lens priority mode, which allows users to select the scene modes, six different Smart Filters and the intelli-Zoom function. The Samsung NX1000 is available in black, pink or white and costs £599 / $699 in a kit with the 20-50mm II lens. The NX1000 is very slightly smaller than the NX210. Once again there's no viewfinder or built-in pop-up flash, and while beginners probably won't notice the lack of an EVF, being more used to holding a camera at arm's length than holding one up to their eye, they will undoubtedly miss having a flash, while the reverse is probably true for more experienced photographers.
Protruding metal neck strap eyelets are located on top of the NX1000 at the sides, with the rear dominated by the fixed 3 inch LCD screen. On the left side of the body is a lozenge shaped hole for the built-in microphone. On the right is a plastic cover that houses a HDMI port for connecting the NX1000 to a HD television or monitor and a USB port. The latter port can be used as a remote socket for use with the new SR2NX02 remote shutter release.The NX1000 uses the same built-in dust-removal system as the original NX100 and NX10 models, which vibrates the sensor 60,000 times per second to remove any unwanted specks from appearing in your images.There's a traditional round dial with a positive click for the different exposure modes located on the far-right, which is a typical feature of DSLR cameras and enables you to quickly change between the various options. The usual selection of Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual are available for the more experienced photographers, and the more beginner-friendly Scene modes, Smart Auto and Lens Priority mode are also accessed via this dial
The NX1000 can record high-resolution Full HD 1080p 1920x1080 and 720p 1280x720 movies in the 16:9 aspect ratio and standard VGA 640x480 or 320x260 movies in the 4:3 aspect ratio, all using the H.264 format at 30 frames per second (you can optionally shoot 720p at 60fps). There's also a new cinematic 1920x810 pixel, 24fps mode.The Samsung NX1000 produced images of excellent quality.The images were a little soft straight out of the NX1000 at the default sharpening setting and ideally require some further sharpening in an application like Adobe Photoshop, or you can change the in-camera setting for JPEG files. The night photograph was excellent, with the maximum shutter speed of 30 seconds and bulb mode of 8 minutes allowing you to capture plenty of light.Colours were vibrant without being over-saturated in the default Standard Picture Wizard mode, and you can always choose Vivid if you want even more punch or one of the other seven presets to change the mood of your JPEG images.The Samsung NX1000 has 3 different JPEG image quality settings available, with SuperFine being the highest quality option, and you can also shoot in RAW format.The flash settings on the Samsung NX1000 are Smart Flash, Auto, Auto+Red-eye reduction, Fill-in, Fill-in+Red-eye reduction, 1st Curtain, 2nd Curtain and Off.Samsung's various Picture Wizard options are similar to Olympus' Picture Modes, Nikon's Picture Styles and Canon's Picture Controls, offering preset combinations of different sharpness, contrast, saturation and colour tone settings, all of which can be changed.he same 20 megapixel sensor from the NX210 and range-topping NX20 delivers excellent still image quality, with a very usable ISO range of 100-3200 and 1080p HD video complete with auto-focusing, full control over the exposure settings, stereo sound and a wealth of other options. The NX1000 offers all the advantages that a camera with a large APS-C DSLR sensor offers, namely better performance at higher ISOs and greater depth-of-field effects than the smaller Micro Four Thirds format.


The Samsung NX2000 isn't the cheapest entry-level compact system camera on the market, but it is a very capable one, sharing the same core DNA as the other new NX models. It's so similar to the NX210 that i would recommend saving £150 / $200 and opting for the NX1000 instead, or stepping up to the more DSLR-like NX20
