Samsung Electronics Co has launched the NX1, a super-fast interchangeable-lens camera, at event featuring award-winning photo journalist David Burnett.
The NX1 is the latest addition to Samsung’s award-winning NX series, which combines the connectivity features that consumers expect from Samsung, with crystal clear image quality, fast shutter speeds, and a durable body that lets users take photos under any conditions.
The NX1 boasts a DRIMeV Imaging Engine, which allows for 28-MegaPixel photos to be taken at 15 frames per second (fps) – an astounding feat that allows users to continuously shoot high-quality images without experiencing any delays in camera function despite the size of the data stream. The NX1, can easily capture that once-in-a-lifetime moment as it happens, in glorious 28-MP resolution and at 55ms AF speed.
Users can shoot video in 4K UHD, four times higher resolution than HD. The footage is guaranteed to be smooth and impressive, whether you are viewing it on your laptop or on a high-resolution television. This image clarity is even present in photography taken in darkness, and images remain clear and bright thanks to the NX1’s Adaptive NR technology, which analyses and processes details, colours, and other important elements of the photograph when activated.
Samsung’s design team created a casing that makes the NX1 a perfect camera for any weather condition. The durability of its magnesium body is enhanced by dust and drip-proof seals around the dials, button, and seams of the device, allowing for beautiful captures to be made in any conditions. The range of interchangeable lenses is also dust and splash-proof, making it easier than ever to expand your photography skills in rain or shine.
The camera, which also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, was unveiled at a special launch event held in association with Gulf Photo Plus and in the presence of award-winning photojournalist David Burnett. During the event, Burnett shared insights from his 40-year career as a photojournalist and gave an exclusive preview of images shot on the NX1 from his journey across the Middle East.
Raj Varma, head of division – mobility sales group, Samsung Gulf Electronics, said: “We are confident that our latest model will equip professional photographers with the tools to capture the perfect shot. Unrivalled by any other Compact System Camera on the market, the NX1 boasts superior shutter speed and image quality that will leave you nothing less than impressed with this camera’s performance.”
The Samsung NX1 is priced at AED5,999 AED.
