The NX1 boasts a DRIMeV Imaging Engine, which allows for 28-MegaPixel photos to be taken at 15 frames per second (fps) – an astounding feat that allows users to continuously shoot high-quality images without experiencing any delays in camera function despite the size of the data stream. The NX1, can easily capture that once-in-a-lifetime moment as it happens, in glorious 28-MP resolution and at 55ms AF speed.


This camera also offers a top-notch video setting. Users will be able to shoot their videos in 4K UHD, four times higher resolution than HD. The footage is guaranteed to be smooth and impressive, whether you are viewing it on your laptop or on a high-resolution television.
