Samsung's highly anticipated NX1 mirrorless camera was scheduled for release last month yet an unexplained delay has kept the product from hitting store shelves. Fortunately, Samsung's website has confirmed that the 4K-ready NX1 is now officially available for sale in the U.S. despite retailers like Amazon and B&H Photo still sporting only a pre-order page with a November 28th stock estimate.
For those of you who are unaware of what the NX1 brings to the table, I'll give you a brief overview of its notable specs:
- Magnesium Alloy body designed for weather resistance
- 28MP APS-C Sensor
- Revolutionary AF system with 205 focus points (a whopping 153 are cross-type)
- 15fps continuous burst photography with AF at full 28MP resolution
- Full cinematic 4K and UHD resolutions at 24p plus the usual array of HD video formats (right to SD)
- 3″ Super AMOLED rear display with touch screen
- Integrated Wi-Fi (801.11ac)
- AMOLED electronic viewfinder with focus peaking
The starting price for the NX1 body is just under $1,500 while a bundled NX1 and 16-50mm f/2.0-2.8 lens will run you just under $2,800.
