Dennis Hissink had his hands on the new Samsung GX-1S DSLR, a 6.1 Megapixel (CCD sensor) Pentax mount Digital SLR camera featuring a large 2.5 inch LCD screen, high speed 2.8 fps up to 8 frames in JPEG mode CCD sensor.
“Holding the Samsung GX-1S in my hands feels both secure and comfortable. The camera is light weight (about 505 g) and its dimensions (125×92.5×67 mm) are small enough to bring the camera with you all the time. The front of the Samsung GX-1S features the standard Pentax K lens mount with AF coupling. On the lower right side of the lens a lock button unlocks the lens from the mount. The self-timer LED can be found in the grip, while the Focus mode switch is located on the opposite side. The top of the camera features the pop-up flash compartment, external flash hot-shoe and a rather small status LCD panel. “
