SamsungSamsung GX-1S SLR camera review : The digital SLR camera market is no longer served exclusively by camera manufacturers. After the takeover of Konica Minolta, we have seen the sudden arrival of electronics giant Sony, whose introduction of the Alpha 100 instantly puts them on the map. In addition to this, Panasonic have joined forces with Olympus. The third electronics giant that wants a piece of the continuously growing market of the DSLR is Samsung. As far as electronics are concerned, there isn't much left to teach Samsung. For the actual camera technique, the brand paid a visit to Pentax. This resulted in the Samsung GX-1S and the GX-1L; cameras that are based on the Pentax *ist DS2 and the Pentax*ist DL2, respectively.

With the Samsung GX-1S digital SLR camera, Samsung take their first steps into the lowest segment of this strongly growing market. A logical step, especially as the range of professional models is generally hard to enter, and the battle is fought between Canon and Nikon. (Professional) Photographers are often more conservative than one would perhaps imagine. The Samsung GX-1S is a pleasantly small and light-weight digital SLR camera, one that isn't likely to be left at home, which makes the GX-1S an excellent alternative for those that are interested in taking the step from a compact camera to a digital SLR camera, without having to compromise on ease and convenience.

Samsung GX-1S DSLR - Lenses
The 6.1 Megapixel Samsung GX-1S digital SLR camera comes as a body alone or with a standard zoom lens. The Samsung D-Xenon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens is a light weight (225 g) lens with a Pentax KAF mount. The Samsung dSLR camera will utilize the new Schneider Kreuznach D-Xenon lens system and Pentax’s lens KAF bayonet mount technology. This will result in the fact that all Pentax dSLR lenses will be mountable on the Samsung GX-1S. According to the official information from Samsung the new D-Xenon lens has been especially developed for use with the new Samsung GX-1S camera. The compact Samsung D-Xenon lens is both portable and affordable to ensure easy operations.

Samsung GX1S - Consecutive shooting mode & LCD monitor
The Samsung GX1S camera includes a high-speed consecutive shooting mode of up to 2.8 frames per second up to eight frames in JPEG shooting and up to five frames per second when shooting in Raw Mode, allowing the user to capture a series of the subject's action or movement. Designed to enable easy viewing of images in all lighting conditions, the GX1S features a large, 2.5-inch LCD monitor and a high-magnification pentaprism viewfinder offering a 95-percent field view and .95-times magnification.

Samsung GX 1S digital SLR review
Samsung have taken a wise decision by keeping the bayonet identical to that of Pentax. As a result, the Samsung can also be equipped with Pentax lenses, even the very old ones, although it should be said that this will cause a slight loss of functionality, which means you will eventually lose out on a certain degree of user convenience. The Samsung GX-1S is delivered as a kit with a Schneider Kreuznach D-Xenon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, which looks suspiciously much like the kit lens that comes with the Pentax models. Either way, it offers an attractive range, which is the equivalent of 28-84mm with a 35mm camera. The focal length multiplier is 1.5x, which is the same as that of the Nikon digital SLR cameras. We had the opportunity to submit the Samsung GX-1S to some extensive testing during a longer period of time. The results can be read in the following Samsung GX-1S digital SLR review.
