The 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.

To provide accurate focusing on a variety of subjects the Samsung 1S incorporates a 11-point AF sensor and a choice of AF single or AF-continuous for a wide variety of options. For further image control, users can chose from several White Balance settings and a variety of automatic shooting modes.

Samsung GX-1S SLR preview
Compared to a year ago the digital industry is changing rapidly. Respectable manufacturers are losing ground or, better said, were never able to transform from analogue to digital like major players such as Canon. It was a shame to lose Konica Minolta as a brand for digital cameras, and it seems that this brand is not the only one to leave the digital camera market. On the other hand, players like Samsung and Panasonic are eager to take over and are transforming rapidly into active digital camera manufacturers. Samsung cooperates with Pentax and introduced the Samsung GX-1S dSLR. Although we have only had this pre-production sample in the office for a short period of time we can still give you an extensive preview of the first Samsung digital SLR camera. Read all the details about this new digital SLR camera in our Samsung GX-1S preview, which includes a comparison chart and several product images.
