The NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm Lens (Black) from Samsung is a more compact, and more affordable alternative to a cumbersome DSLR camera, yet it still offers a lot of quality features you would expect to find in cameras three times its size. Along with the sleek, slim design of the NX1000, you get the creative opportunities that interchangeable lenses afford, plus mega-fine-detailed imagery: with a large (23.5 x 15.7mm), high-resolution APS-C image sensor, the NX1000 captures photos at a vast 20.3 Megapixels. This model comes with a versatile 20-50mm zoom lens and a flash that attaches to the camera's hot shoe.

The lens features Samsung's i-Function technology, which puts a button on the lens that unlocks the manual adjustment of several settings. Choose among shutter speed, aperture, exposure value, white balance, and ISO, and then turn the ring on the lens to adjust your selected parameter. The slim-bodied NX1000 camera has a mount that accepts any of Samsung's NX-mount lenses, a growing family that already offers a wide range of choices.

The NX1000's video system is capable of recording full HD 1920 x 1080 video at 30p. Set at 1280 x 720 resolution, the NX1000 can even capture true slow-motion video.

Having Wi-Fi connectivity in your camera lets you 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, Twitter 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.

The NX1000's 20.3 Mp APS-C CMOS sensor offers almost 50% more pixels over its predecessor, to capture much finer detail in images
The bundled 20-50mm lens zooms 2.5x and offers an aperture range of f/3.5-5.6. The OIS II optical stabilization ameliorates camera shake for any image
The NX1000 records movies as H.264 files at Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution at 30 progressive frames per second. The camera can also record 720p (1280 x 720) at 60 fps
The NX1000 fast drive enables the capture of decisive moments at a speed of 8 shots per second and a shutter speed of up to 1/4000th of a second
The NX1000's bright 3.0" display features a VGA resolution (640 x 480) for 921k dots and a 100% field of view of what the sensor captures
The APS-C sensor features super-sonic dust reduction to keep it free of dust
Display options include Grid (four types), Histogram (for checking exposure levels), Icon On/Off, and a Distance Scale that's selectable in feet or meters (or can be turned off)
For stereo audio capture, left and right microphones are integrated into the camera's top – and separated by a distance that's about equivalent to the diameter of the lens mount. There's also a top-mounted speaker for playback
The bundled SEF-8A flash (GN8) mounts to the camera's hot shoe. Flipping it up turns it on; flipping it back down turns it off again
Smart Filter enables access to 10 filters for applying artistic effects in-camera
The NX1000 can create 3D images (regular or panoramic) without a special lens
Framing mode auto-gains the brightness of the display in low-light scenes to keep the LCD bright
Focus Aid shows an on-screen reference for easier manual focusing

        Comments about NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm Lens (Black):

        This is a step-up for us from point and shoot cameras. The first thing you notice is that even with the huge mega-pixel rating, it processes an image MUCH more quickly then even our very nice point and shoot Canon. The camera is easy to handle. Yes, I have taken more then one video by mistake because I put my thumb on the record button while holding the camera. Didn't take long to learn better, but did have to learn.

        Have only played with the remote viewer feature enough to see that it works.

        All in all, I'm very, very pleased.

        Comments about NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm Lens (White):

        I am admittedly a novice in photography, but love this camera. I leave the camera in smart mode and it works out all the settings to get me a great shot. Far better than any point and shoot, but while retaining the simplicity. The wifi option to email photos is spectacular. I was at an engagement party and took a spectacular shot of the now bride and groom. They asked me to send them the photo when I got home, but after hooking up to their wifi network, it was in their inbox within a few minutes.

        My only suggestion is to factor in a top of the line memory card when you buy this camera. With the size of the images this thing takes in raw format, you need something with a quick write speed. I use Sandisk Extreme.

        Comments about NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm Lens (White):

        I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and took many pictures and a video of the otters' feeding. I didn't use flash since some exhibits restrict the use. The NX1000 will not take pictures if it cannot focus on the object. For example, the lens is too close to the object and you press the shutter button. The NX1000 won't take a picture. I am a beginner, so I don't know why this is so. I have to learn how to take a picture properly. It is very easy to use and compact. I took several videos at length and the battery/camera did get hot. I just did as the user manual suggested and took out the battery out to let the NX1000 cool. Overall, the NX1000 is a great camera for a beginner like me.

              Out of the box I thought I'd never figure out how to properly use this camera since its loaded with features. I followed instructions in camera when I turned it on and right away started taking the best photos ever. My friends thought I had someone take them for me. It's comfortable to hold and easy to operate. I just love this camera.

                The camera is great, fast and reliable. With its price as a point and shoot camera but with the features of an SLR. What can i ask for!

                    Used the camera for the first time last weekend. Pictures were of a friend mountain biking, so used shutter priority with continous shots. Was very happy with the results. Color and focus were both exceptional. Camera also fit nicely in my pack due to the small size.
