Samsung NX1000 review

Dynamic range

Image: Using raw capture is essential to get the most out of the NX1000. Here, the dynamic range and colour tones have been captured well.

Like its counterparts, the NX1000 has a dynamic range of approximately 11EV at ISO 100, which is solid if unspectacular for a camera at this level. The camera does not offer a HDR mode to extend the dynamic range, although auto exposure bracketing up to ±3EV is possible. The use of a tripod is ideal in this mode as the three frames are captured one after the other, and the files require blending post-capture to combine the extra tonal information.
