With Sony dominating the mirrorless camera market, other companies are looking to find ways to make their hardware stand out in comparison. Fujifilm has chosen to design their custom sensor array, Panasonic has focused on stunning video, and Samsung – well, they want to cram as much technology into a small package as they possibly can. The result is the NX500; and it is a real tiny camera with big promises.
The NX500 borrows many of the best components of the NX1 and packs it into a bite-size version. With a 28-megapixel back-side illuminated APS-C sensor, 4K video, 30 frames per second burst shooting, and the same class-leading autofocus system of the NX1, the NX500 is easily one of the best values in the market.

- DRIMe Vs processor
- Samsung NX lens mount
- Hybrid autofocus system
- 3″ flip-up touch Super AMOLED display
