Samsung NX1000 Reviews

Pocket-lint reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“The inclusion of the decent 20.3-megapixel sensor – the very same as found in the NX20 – is the star of the show, so if image quality is your main concern then the Samsung might have already caught your attention.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“The camera scores highly in all areas and importantly produces great image quality whilst providing excellent Wi-Fi connectivity, whether you want to upload to social network sites, or simply backup photos.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“In testing we found the NX1000 produced very good sharpness, solid dynamic range, and offered image quality that was quite good right up to ISO 3200. The NX1000 also managed to capture shots at up to 8 frames per second,”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Photographyblog reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“The NX1000 offers all the advantages that a camera with a large APS-C DSLR sensor offers, namely better performance at higher ISOs and greater depth-of-field effects than the smaller Micro Four Thirds format. We’d be happy to regularly shoot with any setting from 100-1600, and even 3200 is handy at a push.”
Rating: ★★★★½

PCMAG reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“Video is recorded in MP4 format at 1080p30 or 720p30 HD quality. The footage is excellent; details are crisp, colors are sharp, and the kit lens is able to refocus on the fly without adding unwanted audio to the soundtrack.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

ITProPortal reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“It’s a well-sorted little camera and certainly above expectations for an entry-level model. It has plenty of useful features as well as a couple that may need a little work, but on the whole it’s a very nice camera to use and produces some very pleasing results.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PC Advisor reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“Offering a blend of manual control and point and shoot operation, the NX1000 is very usable, no matter your skill set. And when punchy, bright, detail-packed images are the result we have a very capable, portable contender for those prepared to look beyond brands with a longer camera heritage.”

T3 reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“The 20.3 megapixel sensor incorporating Samsung NX1000 presents itself as the ideal step up camera for someone wanting a more future proofed device capable of taking better pictures than their present point-and-shoot camera or smartphone allows.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Sansmirror reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“Noise levels are lower, too. The old 14mp sensor definitely started degrading at high ISO values, even as low as ISO 800. This new sensor handles ISO 800 just fine, and even ISO 3200 is quite usable now. Color fidelity is good, and overall this small, low-end camera is capable of producing some excellent images.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Amateurphotographer reviews the Samsung NX1000 and writes;
“Using the camera to shoot a sports scene, I found fast and erratic movement definitely beyond its capabilities. Without lock-on tracking for continuous shooting, don’t expect the camera to cope with rapid movement. However, at this level the camera is not really designed for this use, and its intended audience should find the contrast-detection AF system snappy for everyday scenes.”
