We have already told you about the rumored NX400 coming from Samsung within the next month or two, but today, some new specs have emerged that point to Samsung taking a shot at the Sony A6000sony_a6000_f001_zpsff8c7ae7

If you were to put a bunch of photographers in a room, give them the top APS-C mirrorless cameras on the market, and then ask them which ones they liked best, chances are more than a few would put the A6000 at the top or very near to it. So it makes sense that Samsung would target the A6000 as a top competitor for their upcoming NX400 camera.

According to the rumor report over on Mirrorless Rumors, the NX400 will feature the exact same sensor and AF system that has been wow-ing people in the flagship NX1. So right off the bat, we can see Samsung means business. The camera will have a built in EVF; previously, it was rumored there may be two models (one with and one without an EVF). You can see the rest of the rumored specs below… nx1-samsung

Samsung NX400 Rumored Specs

  • Same 28MP NX1 sensor
  • Same NX1 autofous system
  • Built-in EVF
  • Smaller buffer than NX1 but triple than NX300.
  • 4K recording (although not 100% sure yet)
  • No weather sealed body
  • Price around $900 with kit lens.

The rumored price seems a little high, especially if their target competitor is the A6000, but as we all know with rumored pricing on things – it’s fluid so the chances are Samsung doesn’t even really know exactly what they are going to charge for the NX400 yet.

I have to say, I am really intrigued by Samsung’s latest offerings. The NX1, by most accounts, seems to be superior – or at least on par – in most respects to many of the other top APS-C options on the market currently. The NX400 looks to be the ‘NX1-lite’, and the NX1 was already a great deal at $1500.

It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out…
