The NX1 offers the same capabilities as a midrange dSLR, including weather sealing, but in a much more compact body. However, because it's an APS-C-size sensor, with concomitant-quality optics, the lenses are the same size as dSLR versions.

The grip is relatively large and very comfortable to hold.

A locking mode dial with custom settings slots and a status LCD are features not typically found on mirrorless models.

While it's not exactly the same, high-end Nikon users will recognize the configuration of the controls on the left shoulder.

This configuration, with a locking drive mode dial, will be very familiar to folks who use midrange Nikon dSLRs.

The back looks like most of the Samsung ILCs, including the Wi-Fi direct-connect button.

The NX1 supports both Cinema 4K/24p and UHD/30p, with the ability to record internally to SD cards or to a recorder via HDMI. You can also stream 4K wirelessly to a Samsung TV.

The AMOLED touchscreen display tilts for overhead or low-level shooting.

This is the biggest disappointment: most cameras in this class have two slots.

The NX1 has a headphone jack and mic input, micro HDMI out, plus a USB 3.0 port.

The built-in flash is relatively underpowered (GN 11), but you're better off with an external flash, anyway.

The camera incorporates the first APS-C-size backside-illuminated (BSI) we've seen.

The battery grip replicates the built-in shooting controls.

The grip attaches the same way as on most cameras -- nothing fancy here.

With the battery grip attached, the camera is about as big as a dSLR with one.
