The NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm and 16mm Lenses (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, a wide angle 16mm lens, and a flash that attaches to the camera's hot shoe.

The lenses feature 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 20-50mm lens zooms 2.5x and offers an aperture range of f/3.5-5.6
The included 16mm pancake lens is equivalent to a 24.6mm lens in 35mm format and provides a wide 82.6° angle of view while maintaining a fast f/2.4 maximum aperture
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

          Only drawback is there is no View Finder!

          Right out of the box, this Smart Wi-Fi digital was easy to get shooting and uploading to the Internet. The quality of the photos is exceptional. You can just set it on "SMART" and it does everything for you to get a great shot. It was easy to connect with my Wi-Fi router and computer. Exploring all of the more advanced features will be fun.

            Comments about NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm and 16mm Lenses (Black):

            After my son was born I found it difficult to leave the house with the baby, car seat, diaper bag, AND dSLR kit. Yet I wasn't satisfied with just our point-and-shoot (even though it is a good one, Olympus TG-1iHS). So size was my biggest motivation.

            My two criteria for choosing between mirrorless systems were price and wi-fi. Although this is the "low-end" model from Samsung, I find it fits my needs well. If I wanted a viewfinder and didn't care about size & weight, I would just use my dSLR, after all. I got the body, three lenses, and small accessories for under $1000.

            I am primarily shooting with the 30mm pancake lens. With a UV filter for protection, it really is not much smaller than the 20-50mm without a filter. The whole thing is not as flat as I would like; I guess I was kind of picturing a large point-and-shoot.

            The system does allow for plenty of aperture and shutter control and fast continuous shooting, giving it many of the advantages of an SLR system. One drawback is that most of the controls, including ISO, white balance, and metering, require scrolling through the menu.

            Of note, I was able to find a fotodiox lens mount converter for my EOS lenses at another online retailer. Just for curiosity's sake.

            I would definitely recommend a mirrorless system to any casual photographer who is thinking about stepping up to a dSLR for picture quality and shooting speed.

            Comments about NX1000 Mirrorless Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 20-50mm and 16mm Lenses (Black):

            I wanted a camera smaller than an SLR that had a larger sensor than a small camera but with good resolution, so I had been looking for an APS-C camera. I also considered the Sony Nex 5R and Canon Eos M. The former was my top choice, but it doesn't come out until late January. The Canon has terrible reviews with respect to its autofocus speed, and both of them are priced much higher. I believe this camera gets generally positive reviews, and when I saw the great price Black Friday week, I felt compelled to pull the trigger. I was primarily interested in the 16mm pancake, since it results in a very compact package, and the 20-50mm is an added bonus for the price. I do not consider myself anything other than an amateur, so the level of controls and convenience functions are fine for me. The images it can take are extremely sharp. The videos seem okay also. The main drawback, in my opinion, is that there is no image stabilization, so I think a tripod is necessary in low light, or you have to otherwise need to somehow get the shutter speed up. The battery doesn't seem great either, but spare batteries are relatively cheap. It's also slow writing raw to the card. Assuming that the camera remains reliable, I think it is a great overall deal. Minus one star for lack of OIS, but I can't complain too much given the great price I paid. As usual the transaction was smooth and no problems with the delivery.
