As with many camera releases the full quoted specs do not tell the whole story on a camera’s final capabilities. Our reader Andreas Bernhard pointed us that the Samsung NX1 does have a 120fps 1080p mode included inside the Samsung Multi Motion mode. We previously thought it was just a slowdown of 60p with interpolation but as it turns out it is also sporting a full 120p 1080 mode inside the camera.
We have no further footage to show you at this time but on first inspection it looks like the NX1 is much sharper than the a7s in slow motion and it is nearing true 1080p levels of detail in 120p mode. Aliasing however is very prominent as you can see in the cat’s fur and whiskers the stair stepping is very apparent. We will need confirmation from other video samples in order to fully evaluate the performance and rank the camera accordingly. At first glance it looks like a great contender to be ahead of the GH4 and a7s in the slow motion department.
