Samsung’s next compact system camera (CSC), NX500 is up on the pre-order row. The smart camera is having the same 28MP BSI APS-C CMOS sensor as found on Samsung NX1. Meaning you can have all the benefits of the sensor and DRIMe V image processor in a compact body. As for the price, it is cheaper. If you couldn’t get a NX1 because of the price, you can consider getting an NX500. If you are living in the USA, you can pre-order Samsung NX500 (EV-NX500ZBMJUS) camera + 16-50mm Power Zoom OIS lens from Samsung’s own website or from other retailers for $799.99.
