    Sounds like Nikon 1 competition to me. I like that! Maybe it will force Nikon to work on the system more seriously.

    Elsewhere I've seen this rumoured to be literally a mini NX model (with APS-C sensor) so I don't know which is correct to be honest.

    NXF1_zps244d9189.

    Prime 9mm x 2,7 ~ 24,3mm (in 35mm)
    Zoom 9-27 x 2.7 ~ 24.3 - 72.9mm (in 35mm)

    It will be interesting to see how fast 9mm will be. So who is going to make a decent 1" sensor compact camera w/ Canon g1x II type lens now that another company other then Sony has the same sensor? Nikon has the same size sensor but it hasn't used it in any compact either.

  5. Neat, but at what point is it too small?

    I don't think this is the Sony sensor in the RX10/RX100. It looks more like an upgraded version of Aptina's 14MP sensor in the NIkon V2. Here are my thoughts on the sensor and the camera/zoom lens.

    The color will certainly make a bold fashion statement. :tongue: It will definitely need a pancake in the 28-40 mm (effective) range.

    Interesting camera. One thing that jumps out at me is micro sd.
    Nikon 1 v3 will have It and Now this CAM.
    Will this be the new standard?.
    I think It will.

    Okay Its getting more interesting.
    Found out It has NFC so you can transfer photos by touching It to an other NFC enabled device, like a smartphone or tablet.
    Come on Guys nobody has posted Its best feature. It has wink mode.
    Turn the screen up to face you, wink and It automatically takes your Picture. Instant selfie. :D

    During testing one of the prototypes, the tester dropped the camera. So yes I think this CAM might be to small for some users.

    That is the 1st Samsung camera that I have thought ...... WOW a decent looking compact interchangeable system camera. If they claim is the worlds smallest then it will have to be smaller than the Q. Good for samsung for putting in a 1" sensor!

    Hopefully this will also push Nikon to release new lenses for the Nikon 1 system. Its really good to see another player in the 1" milc market.
    Milc anyone? :D
    Sorry bad joke. I couldnt resist.
    Im not sure this is the smallest but It looks like the thinest in the market. Either way im looking foward to a full review.
