Just in time for Photokina 2014, Samsung is announcing their brand new flagship camera: the NX1. And for this, it seems like the company is pulling out all the stops. In brief, it boasts a brand new 28MP APS-C BSI sensor, 4K video at 24p, 15fps shooting capabilities, a magnesium alloy body with weather sealing, a new DRIME 5 processor, 205 AF points that cover 90% of the imaging sensor, an old school LCD screen on top for easier readouts, 153 cross type sensors, NFC, WiFi and bluetooth connectivity.
Also published today is our hands on experience–and to be quite honest we were floored by the AF performance. The new sensor has the most resolution of any APS-C sensor out there so far, so it will be very interesting to see how it performs.
In addition to the new camera though, Samsung is also announcing their new weather sealed 50-150mm f2.8 OIS lens. It boasts a four axis stabilization system, and a nine blade aperture.
