Style and Perfection, All in One.

Introducing the 20.3 megapixels Samsung Smart Camera NX1000 with 1/4000 fast shutter and Built-in WiFi.

Image Description

20.3MP APS-C Sensor

Customized for the NX System, the brand-new, professional-grade, 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor produces images that rival those of any premium DSLR. Each individual pixel has a large sensor area and receives more light, guaranteeing low noise levels, high dynamic range and accurate color differentiation. The higher sensitivity allows you to shoot during low-light situations without graininess or other noise. The new sensor also provides Full HD video output capabilities.

Image Description

1/4000 Fast Shutter

Shutter speed can make the difference between capturing an iconic image and missing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The NX1000’s 1/4000 shutter speed gives you the flexibility to shoot like the pros-at varying speeds and light exposures. The NX1000’s shutter even automatically adjusts itself as it senses environmental factors such as temperature and camera direction. And the electronically controlled focal-plane shutter reduces exposure errors.

Image Description

High Speed Capture

The NX1000 features super-fast High Speed Capture capabilities provide an simple yet sophisticated way to capture images in total focus. The ultra-high speed Auto Focus (AF) that can rival almost any system camera and is core component of the system. The result is a fast and precise AF System that captures life’s fleeting moments. And with a sequential rate of 8fps, capturing fast-moving objects in perfect clarity are no longer a challenge.

Image Description

Discover the True Beauty of HD Video

Built with 1080 30p Full HD movie recording capabilities, the NX1000 transforms shooting video with a still camera into an art form. Choose from a wide range of viewing angles and zoom with confidence. The mirrorless CMOS image sensor offers precise auto focus even while you shoot. For a truly cinematic experience, the NX System has been fitted with an 18-200mm lens exclusively for Full HD video.

Image Description

Instant Sharing via Wi-Fi

The NX1000’s Wi-Fi connectivity lets you connect your digital camera to a wireless network. Save photos and videos directly to a computer or cloud service while you shoot, email them, print them wirelessly, or upload them straight to Facebook™ or YouTube. You’ll never have to worry about losing a great shot, running out of storage space, or remembering to bring the right cable along.

Image Description

Premium Metal Design

The NX1000 packs the power of a professional-grade digital camera within a sleek and compact design. Its ergonomically crafted exterior fits perfectly within your hand, while the topside design feels solid and looks just as sturdy. The NX System gets its charming good looks through the perfect combination of modern metallic styling and classic clean lines. On the inside, the large CMOS Sensor replaces any mirrors for a smaller camera body. The lightweight body makes it more portable and easier to shoot in a variety of angles and positions, making it the ultimate professional-grade camera that you can carry in your pocket.

Image Description

Smart Filter 2.0 and Selective Color

Smart Filter 2.0 options make it easy to create special moods. Choose the Tilt & Shift Lens Effect for a miniaturized look, the Vignetting Effect for striking contrasts, Half-Tone Dot for a comic-book look, and more. With the Selective Color feature, you can even choose the colors you want to emphasize.

Image Description

Wide Range ISO for Perfect Exposure

The wrong exposure can ruin even the most carefully framed shot. The NX System’s imaging sensor offers a wide ISO sensitivity range of up to 12,800 at normal settings. Even indoors or at night, you can create images with minimal noise, rich tonal gradations and faithful colors-without a flash. You’ll also capture clearer, crisper images of fast-moving objects.

Image Description

Panorama, 3D Panorama

Image Description

Smart Panel

The intuitive Smart Panel user interface puts all the settings you need right at your fingertips. Every key feature is easy to access, thanks to on-screen icons and clearly explained menu items. That means faster adjustments so you won’t miss that perfect shot.

Included Lens: 20-50mm F/3.5-5.6 ED

It may be ultra-compact, but the 20-50mm retractable zoom lens delivers big results. Ranging from the 20mm wide-angle to the standard-angle 50mm, it’s perfect for everything from portraits to landscapes to sunsets. If you're a traveler, you'll appreciate the fact that the 20-50mm zoom lens is much lighter than comparable lenses. And when you're done shooting, the lens retracts dramatically when not in use so that it easily fits in your jacket pocket. Lens Details>>

Owner Reviews Submit a Review

I'm giving four instead of five stars because the camera doesn't let you WiFi photos at large resolutions. But if that feature is not important to you this is a five star camera. This is my first digital camera with removable lens. This allowed me to connect it to an adapter and use it with my 540mm focal length 101mm apochromatic refractor telescope. It worked really well and I have some great detailed shots of the San Francisco waterfront area and some ship traffic from a dock in Oakland. I also like the special effect filters that come in the camera. It connects well to an ipad and the auto adjust feature on the iPhoto app worked perfectly to color balance the telescope lens shots, which the camera couldn't do by itself since it wasn't designed to be used with my telescope. All I all, I got everything I wanted.
