    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.

        Great value in the compact system camera class. Wifi option is cool for facebook and instagram. Wish it came with a bigger lens, but you can always go buy a bigger zoom lens. Best price was on here,

          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.

                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.
