Canon 7D Mark II vs. Samsung NX1 - Specification Comparison

Canon-7D-MK-2-vs-Samsung-NXCanon 7D Mark II and Samsung NX1 finally announced, we now have confirmed set of specification of both the camera, take a look at the specification below.

Canon-7D-MK-2-vs--NX-1Sensor + AF System – If we look at history (2 year ago from now), Sensor and AF module are two different things in a DSLR, the sensor captures the image and AF module used to lock AF on the subject. But now the things are changed and new generation of PDAF (Phase detect Auto Focus ) sensor are coming.

Canon is rumored (or has the capability) to implement 20 megapixel single layer Dual pixel AF sensor only (multi layer dual-pixel AF technology will take some more time but Canon does have some patents), on the other hand the Samsung will add a 28 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor (BSI or ISO CELL we are not confirmed at this point, but I will not pay $1500+ for a camera body if it doesn’t have ISO CELL sensor inside it)….

Back to comparison– Samsung NX1 features a massive resolution of 28 megapixel but Canon 7D Mark II limited to 20 megapixel. The Canon 7D MK II PDAF sensor will carry 65 AF points “All Cross-type”, Dual cross on the center point and on the other hand the Samsung NX1 will feature 205 phase and 209 contrast-detection autofocus points … – Best Sensor – Winner Samsung

SPEED – Continuous shooting speed, Video recording, JPEG processing and the overall speed, depend upon the type of Image processor inside the camera , Canon will use Dual DIGIC 6 Processors and Samsung will use new generation of DRIMe V Signal Processor.

With the help of Dual DIGIC 6 Processors Canon is able to shoot 20 Megpixels of 10 frame in 1 second and Samsung can capture 28 megapixel 15 frames in 1 second. – Top shooting Speed- Winner Samsung

Video: Now we are sure that Samsung NX1 do shoot 4K videos but in mp4 format on the other hand Canon 7D limited to Full HD recording only and available formats are MOV and MP4 file formats , plus you also get a option to record uncompressed videos to an optional external recorded

WiFi and NFCSamsung NX1 feature NFC and WiFi for remote shooting and sharing, unfortunately the 7D Mk II will not have WiFi or NFC.

Lack of Lens Support: Samsung is very  weak here, Canon 7D Mark II will get full support of EF and EF-S lenses, Samsung NX1  will arrive with limited lenses at first (one we already have and 2-3 new lenses will arrive at the time of NX1 announcement).. but the lack of pro-grade lenses will sure impact on NX1 sales volume.

Verdict: Based on Specification we have Samsung NX1 camera is a clear winner, we recommend you to buy Samsung NX1 over Canon 7D Mark II.

    Although I would never buy the 7DII, because it (the body) will cost most probably $/EUR >2000 at launch, which simply just does not worth it, still, I do not think the NX1 is a clear winner in specifications and handling. For me the agony is more to choose between the K-3 and the NX-1. Though the 15-50, the 50-140 and the 85 mm lenses would worth all the sacrifice.

    the 7D Mk2 is outdated already.

    its onyl for AF junkies.

    i mean what have they improved? the AF system nothing more… and 5 years for that?

  • PanzerFaustNL

    The 7D mk II wil do 1600 euro.

    But I will never buy a Samsung, reason? The immense amount of lenses for the Canon, there is no company, not even Nikon, who have such a variety of lenses.
