Samsung sells a crapload of cameras all around the world. But not for pros. At $1500, the new NX1 is the first Samsung cam packing enough power to be taken seriously by photography enthusiasts.

And yet, if there's a single modern digital camera that has reached near cult status in the past few years, it's the X100. Enthusiasts flock to the retro-styled, fixed-lens shooters in droves.
