Another thing about the Samsung NX1000 is the aforementioned Wi-Fi functionality that is a hallmark of the company’s NX range. Samsung has even gone so far as to have a dedicated Wi-Fi button built into the NX1000 chassis so as to encourage its use.

Aside from its more straightforward utilities, the Wi-Fi also allows streaming images directly to a TV or email. An app can even be downloaded via the Android market that enables the phone or tablet as the camera’s remote shutter release. The phone or tablet can even control the Smart panel of the camera.

In addition to all those possibilities, the Samsung NX1000 is imbued with a decent, and in fact pretty impressive 3-inch LCD monitor with 921,000 dots of colors. Although it may not be a Clear AMOLED screen as that of its other brothers, nor even just the more regular AMOLED display, the panel is nonetheless perfectly sharp and bright, and is definitely enough for composing and reviewing images on.

Specs-wise, the Samsung NX1000 uses the similar 20.3 MP APS-C CMOS sensor as that of its NX210 and NX20, and even NX2000 brothers despite being the entry-level flagship model of the whole NX series. Performance-wise, the chip does pretty well and produces excellent quality results.
