Samsung NX1 with Nikon Z7 Overview


Let's compare Nikon Z7 with Samsung NX1. These models are included in the Pro Mirrorless cameras. Nikon Z7 was released in 2018, and Samsung NX1 in 2014. Z7 is newer, which is a plus. NX1 4 years older. 4 years, this is a pretty big age difference.
The sensor resolution of Z7 is greater than that of NX1. The difference of 18 MP is quite a lot. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (NX1), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. Z7 has image stabilization(5-axis Sensor-shift), NX1 doesn’t, it is a big minus. Both cameras feature a 3-inch tilting screen.
Both cameras have a electronic viewfinder. Viewfinder Z7 has a higher resolution of 3690k dots, NX1 has a resolution of 2360k dots. Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Nikon Z7 has 15.0 fps continuous shooting. Nikon Z7 has 15.0 fps continuous shooting.
