Definitely, this is a subjective and an optional part of the review – I just processed the pictures to my pleasure in the Lightroom. If you are not interested in this approach, you can go directly to the conclusions (bottom of this page).
That’s what I got:
For those who want to see the RAW-files from NX1000, I made a small archive (255Mb).
Samsung has released a wonderful little camera, that is great in the hand, equipped with a very good lens, and the results of the shooting may compete with the more serious, “professional” cameras. Battery capacity is sufficient for normal situations – 350 shots on average. Simple interface, excellent automatic shooting modes, and opportunities for image processing – make this the most attractive camera for beginners. More advanced users may get delays with RAW recording for continuous shooting, this problem can not be called critical, but it is the only serious drawback of the camera. The controls and menu structure are absolutely comfortable. Almost all the basic requirements for a modern camera followed: the camera ready to shooting in a second after turning on, I’ve never encountered a miss autofocus, and have never been disappointed with the AF-speed, did not have complaints about the metering of semi-automatic and automatic modes. Shutter lag was for me unnoticed. High ISO can be used in conditions with insufficient light. TFT-screen easily passed the test under bright sunlight. Built-in Wi-Fi as an additional service - looks really interesting and useful innovation for photographers, but wireless functions must be able to work with RAW.
