Patrick Singleton had his hands on the first Samsung’s DSLR which released on 23.02.06. The Samsung GX-1L DSLR featuring 6.10 megapixel CCD sensor, interchangeale lens (Pentax K-mount), 5-point phase detection with selectable spot AF, and a 2.5″ LCD screen display.
“We think the GX-1L is a respectable entry level option. We say that mainly because it seems to be a Pentax, which is a good thing for a few reasons. First, it shares Pentax’s durable construction, simple interface and other positive qualities. Second, it shares the Pentax lens mount, so it’s compatible with a large selection of Pentax system lenses and accessories. Third, Pentax has sent other emphatic signals that they are in the digital camera business for the long haul—and whether or not Samsung produces more DSLRs won’t really matter to the GX-1L owner, because Pentax will prove an upgrade path of fully compatible equipment.”
