Unlike the Galaxy S4 Zoom, the Galaxy NX is a more serious camera for photography enthusiasts.  It is a system that is heavy on technology yet it is aimed at more serious photographers, not causal shooters.  The Galaxy NX’s sensor is good, the system is good, and there are a lot of connectivity options.  This is a dream camera for mobile shooters that still prefer using zoom lenses.
