Samsung has begun teasing the launch of a new flagship NX-mount camera, which will be unveiled on September 15 at Photokina 2014.
The biggest digital imaging event in the world occurs once every two years. As you may already know, we are lucky this year because Photokina will open its doors to visitors on September 16. However, the trade fair will probably start on September 15, when companies will reveal their products to the press.
The rumor mill has previously acquired information about a so-called Samsung NX1, a mirrorless camera which should take the market by storm, as it will be aimed at professionals.
Samsung is said to be ready to compete against the big boys, courtesy of an exciting specs list for the NX1. Before the announcement, the South Korean company has decided to tease its upcoming shooter and to send invitations to an event taking place on September 15 where a new NX camera will be unveiled.

The invitation to the event does not reveal very many things. The “Samsung Premiere 2014” show will revolve around the NX-mount and it will help you “find your signature”. The event will begin at 12:00 local time in Cologne, Germany.
The campaign includes several teaser images, but do not get too excited, as they include a glimpse of a large lens and the grip. This means that it is impossible to verify the accuracy of the specs list, which has been updated by a trusted source.
Nevertheless, the new mirrorless interchangeable lens camera is coming soon and it is said to be a great device with exciting features aimed at professional users.

The new Samsung NX1 specs list “confirms” that the shooter will sport a novel 28-megapixel APS-C image sensor, second-generation Phase Detection AF technology with 154 cross-type points, and new image processor – all providing a very high image quality.
Its autofocus performance is said to be the best on the market and everything will be added into a device just slightly bigger than the current flagship, called NX30, which is available at Amazon for around $820.
Samsung NX1’s body will be made out of metal alloy materials and will be both waterproof and dustproof. By the looks of it, this really is a camera for the pros, so stay tuned to find out all the details about it!
