The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) Awards are recognised as the most coveted photo and imaging awards worldwide.

Each year, TIPA editors, vote for the best photo and imaging products based on leadership across several areas including innovation, design/ergonomics, ease-of-use and price and performance ratio. TIPA judges specifically highlighted the NX1’s technology, which empowers photographers everywhere to achieve previously unimaginable levels of quality in every image they capture.

“At Samsung, it is our goal to be recognised for creating technology that enables people to capture, connect and share, while encouraging them to innovate through Samsung’s Smart Camera platform,” said Michael Gibson, Part Leader for Digital Imaging & Accessories at Samsung Electronics SA.

The Samsung NX1 was recognised for its 28.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor and DRIMe V processor, supporting both 4K video and a full-resolution still image shooting rate of 15 frames per second. The NX1 also features two 4K video settings (DCI 4K-4096 x 2160 at 24P and UHD 4K-3840 x 2160 at 24P/30P) as well as HD and Full HD. It comes equipped with a high-resolution AMOLED tilting touch-screen monitor, ISO range of 100-25,600 (Ext. 51,200) and a unique hybrid AF system that combines phase-and contrast-detection.

The Samsung NX1 was developed not to simply improve existing cameras with more advanced features, but to create a completely new type of elite device. The NX1 reflects Samsung’s relentless commitment to evolve and redefine what is possible with a compact system camera.
