What People Are Saying:
Critics like the sensor size (and the resulting high-quality images) on the NX1000, as well as the Wi-Fi, tilting screen and continuous shooting speed of up to 8 frames per second. Consumer Reports calls it thin and relatively inexpensive for its class, but says video quality is only fair. There are only a few user reviews online, but the ones that CostHelper found are positive, although a few complain about having to buy separate lens to get close-up (macro) shots or to get better than a 2X zoom.
- PC Mag: "The 20-megapixel camera is a little slow to start and suffers from some shutter lag, but is still worth a close look for its Wi-Fi features and overall image quality."
- DigitalCameraInfo.com: "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, though the buffer is more limited than it was on the higher NX-series cameras."
- SansMirror.com: "Other than the clunkiness of the Wi-Fi add-on and the fact that the iFn button seems more gimmicky than useful, this is a very strong contender for a basic mirrorless camera. Fortunately, you can pretty much ignore the Wi-Fi and iFn button if you'd like, which makes the NX1000 very much like a well designed compact camera, but with a hot rod large sensor inside to produce superb images and an interchangeable lens option up front."
