With a total cost of around $600 (with a lens), the NX1000 is Samsung's an entry-level mirrorless camera. Video features are fairly substantial, but the performance of the camera—particularly in low light—left a lot to be desired.

Motion & Sharpness

The NX1000 reproduced motion quite well from our test rig. There was very little trailing, though there was some ghosting and artifacting present in the image. The motion of the pinwheels was fairly smooth, but the camera had trouble rendering the vertical lines on the side of the train.
