Are you in the market for a compact interchangeable lens camera? You’re in luck, because the hot Samsung NX1000 has just hit the shelves and it’s actually priced quite reasonably for what you get. Not surprisingly, this camera is compatible with the full family of Samsung NX lenses, giving a fair bit of versatility.
Behind that is the 20.3MP APS-C CMOS sensor, capable of full 1080p HD stereo movie recording. There’s also a 3.0-inch VGA (921k dot) LCD on the back and Samsung’s Smart Auto 2.0 shooting functionality. The ISO range goes up to 12800 with shutter speeds up to 1/4000 sec. You can also use the Wi-Fi along with the Remote Viewfinder app to use your Galaxy smartphone or tablet to take pics from up to 30 feet away. Smart Filters, Selective Color, and full manual control round out the package.
While the MSRP on the Samsung NX1000 has been set at $699.99, you can find it on Amazon for $649, including the 20-50mm kit lens.
