Samsung NX1 receives the ‘Best Compact System Camera Professional’ award by TIPA
Samsung has announced today that the NX1, which was launched last year, has received the ‘Best Compact System Camera Professional’ award by Technical Image Press Association (TIPA). TIPA editors vote for the best imaging products each year based on several factors including quality, innovation, ease-of-use, design/ergonomics, as well as price-to-performance ratio. TIPA specifically praised the NX1’s image quality, which according to Samsung was “previously unimaginable”.
The NX1 features a 28.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor working in tandem with the home-baked DRIMe V image processor, hybrid autofocus system, high-resolution tilting touchscreen AMOLED display, ISO range of 100-25,600, and is capable of capturing 4K videos as well as full resolution images at 15 frames per second. It can capture 4K in two resolutions – DCI 4K-4096 x 2160 at 24fps and UHD 4K-3840 x 2160 at 24/30 fps. The unique hybrid autofocus system on this camera combines contrast-detection autofocus with phase-detection autofocus mechanisms.Join the Discussion
