The Tizen based Samsung NX1 Smartcamera is the company’s answer to DSLR Professional shooting in a Mirror-Less Compact Systems Camera (CSC). The NX1 is capable of shooting 4K video and a staggering autofocus time of only 0.055sec. Originally the NX1 was supposed to hit the US last month, but that clearly didn’t happen.


The NX1 features a 28.2-megapixel, APS-C CMOS sensor, 15fps of continuos shooting, a 3-inch Super AMOLED articulating screen, an EVF with a 1,366 x 758 resolution, NFC and WiFi.

We expect Samsung to offer the NX1 at $1,500 body-only, or $2,800 with a 16-50mm lens, a grip, extra battery and an external charger. At the moment most retailers have the Smartcamera on Pre-Order but its expected to be released REALLY soon.
