And the Korean firm has done it again with its latest NX system interchangeable lens camera, cramming Wi-Fi into its metallic guts.</p> <p>Before any camera enthusiasts out there shout it, we know that the older NX20 features Wi-Fi too – but the NX1000 is a much smaller and sleeker camera than the chunky, mini-DSLR-looking NX20, and it’s aimed at a different kind of buyer.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £530.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 – Wi-Fi </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Wi-Fi works in much the same way as on the <a href="/review/samsung-wb150f">Samsung WB150F</a> compact camera: after connecting to a network, you can email photos or videos, upload them to Facebook, Picasa, Photobucket or YouTube, beam them to a DLNA-equipped TV and back them up to a PC (not a Mac, sadly) or, via Microsoft SkyDrive, the cloud.</p> <p>There are also a couple of Wi-Fi features aimed at Android and iOS device users. Download the MobileLink app and you can wirelessly transfer them to your phone. The Remote Viewfinder app is more intriguing, letting you look through the NX1000’s lens and even take photos on your smartphone’s screen; you could even do this from the other side of the world as long as the camera’s switched on and connected to Wi-Fi.</p> <p>All these ideas are sound enough, and go some way towards bringing the camera in line with a phone when it comes to sharing photos and videos – but there’s a long way to go until it’s all as seamless. Typing in Wi-Fi keys and Facebook captions using a cursor and button, for instance? A total pain in the posterior. Until manufacturers start putting top-notch touchscreens on cameras, that’s always going to be a problem.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-nx1000-05_3.jpg?1372990416" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 – design and features </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Wi-Fi skills aside, the NX1000 is a solid compact system camera, much like the <a href="/review/samsung-nx200">NX200</a> we reviewed earlier in the year. There’s a compact, mostly-metal body; a crisp, rich and lag-free AMOLED screen; a healthy smattering of controls and manual options to keep seasoned snappers happy.</p> <p>There’s Samsung’s trademark i-Function lens, too (a 20-50mm zoom comes with the camera and others are available), and this gives usability a major leg-up. The i-Fn button, situated perfectly for your thumb, can be assigned to a setting like ISO or aperture: hit it, then twist the lens ring to change the setting in double-quick time.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-nx1000-08_3.jpg?1372990416" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 – performance </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Performance is better than a compact and a little bit worse than the average DSLR. Photos and 1080p video clips are sharp and clean in good light, but a little too grainy for our liking when things get dimmer (you may find yourself attaching the included flash a lot). The autofocus is a lot faster than older NX models, but still lags a shade behind compact system cameras from Sony and Panasonic.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-nx1000-04_0_3.jpg?1372990416" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The NX1000 is yet another impressive compact system camera from a major manufacturer, and while we’d rather spend our money on a <a href="/review/sony-nex-5n">Sony NEX-5N</a> or <a href="/review/panasonic-lumix-gx1">Panasonic GX1</a>, there’s nothing here we can point to as particularly disappointing.

Though it hasn't been treated to the same metal finish as its big brother the NX210, the grip plus thumb-pad on the rear make the NX1000 easy to hold plus the plastic body still looks pretty sexy, especially in white.</p><p>So Sammy's 'budget' compact system camera offering more than looks the part – it easily competes with our favourite skinny DSLR competitors and you can feel immediately how light it really is.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-NX1000-hands-on-review-front%255D_0.jpg?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_342.png?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 hands on – smart camera&amp;nbsp; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>This time round, Samsung has kitted the entire NX range out with serious Wi-Fi skills – like the ones on the smartie compact<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/review/samsung-wb150f"> WB150F</a> – so that you never lose a photo again. Accessing your sharing options – including direct uploads to Microsoft SkyDrive and Facebook – straight from the Wi-Fi option on the mode dial is idiot-proof. You can also use the Smart Link hot key on top of the camera to back up your snaps straight to your smartphone.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-NX1000-hands-on-rewview-mode-dial_0.jpg?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_0_275.png?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 hands on – controls &amp;nbsp; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The NX1000 shares a lot of impressive specs with the top-end NX20 including that all-important 20.3MP APS-C sensor. AF was speedy and it boasts an 8fps continuous mode – so we can't wait to take it out for a spin to test out the image quality and performance in a full review.</p><p>There are no surprises when it comes to the NX1000's manual controls – and they include a dedicated button for shooting 1080p video. If you're stepping up from a compact for the first time, the iFunction button on the 20-55mm lens (also featured on the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/review/samsung-nx200">Samsung NX200</a>) is a nice touch. Adding filters and adjusting ISO, shutter speed and exposure via iScene is done by twisting the lens – so you can see the changes on the display as you tweak your settings.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-NX1000-hands-on-review-front-side_0.jpg?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_1_229.png?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 hands on – display </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sammy has made a few compromises to bring the price of the NX1000 down to £600 though – there's no built-in flash, but there is a hotshoe for adding the external flash that will come bundled with the camera.</p><p>And that's a 3in TFT LCD display round the back – no AMOLED here. We can't see this causing many problems in terms of viewing and framing your snaps – and if you'd prefer an Electronic Viewfinder and Clear AMOLED display you can always splash out the extra £300 for the NX20.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/samsung-NX1000-hands-on-review-display_0.jpg?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="144" height="43" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/logo_2_192.png?1364396300" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung NX1000 hands on – price and release date&amp;nbsp; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Samsung NX1000 is out in June for £600 with the 20-55mm iFunction 2.0 lens.
