A Technical Leader - The Samsung NX-1 Camera
I guess we could say that the NX-1 is the big beautiful flagship camera of the Samsung range - except it isn't big and overpowering - but it is beautiful.
It is one of the new breed of cameras - the mirror less system camera. It has all the function of the larger DSLR cameras but with a smaller profile and quieter operation. It is at the cutting edge of operations too - this camera has a number of features for shooters that you just don't get in other systems.
For example - the lenses for the NX-1 have an " Fn" button on the left side. This is a "function" button that allows the shooter to select one of four criteria to alter; ISO, aperture, shutter speed, or white balance. No taking the camera from your eye - just poke the button and turn the front lens ring to make our changes. Fast.
Second - an effective combination of external access dials and buttons with such refinements as the touch screen. the ergonomics of grip and finger contact are near-perfect with such professional refinements as lock-on buttons for the rotary mode dial. No small thing when you want to prevent control shift in the midst of action.
Thirdly - really convenient and seamless integration with laptops, tablets, and smart phones. Well, you'd expect this from Samsung, given their pre-eminent position in the smart-phone business. If your ambition is to be well-connected with the least fuss this is the camera to choose.
Fourthly - the OLED viewfinder is on - instantly - and reacts instantly to give you a real-time experience. There is also a tilting screen for studio and landscape work.
Fifthly - 4K video recording - best view there is these days and sets your videos up for professional showing in the future.
Range of lenses? Very wide, and gaining more new focal lengths each year. And here is the real kicker - like all the devices that Samsung produce - they are produced by Samsung themselves - no external compromises . A seamless integration of optics and electronics.
