As often as we can, we like to put the cameras that we test into the hands of working photographers to find out what they think. Recently we gave the new Samsung NX1 to Jordan Stead, staff photographer at, and ventured out to nearby Carkeek Park in Seattle to photograph the seasonal salmon run.

A seasoned shooter accustomed to pro camera bodies, Jordan gave the NX1's hybrid AF system and 28.2MP BSI-CMOS sensor a good workout. The fast-moving salmon proved to be excellent test subjects, and only one camera was harmed in the making of this video. And it wasn't the NX1. We hope you enjoy this video as much as we enjoyed making it!
