Samsung GX-1S announcement clippings

For outstanding image quality, the GX-1S features high-precision, 16 segment multi-pattern metering to assure accurate light measurement in addition to center-weighted metering and spot metering for more advanced applications. To provide accurate focusing on a variety of subjects the GX 1S incorporates a sophisticated 11-point AF sensor and a choice of AF single or AF-continuous for a wide variety of options. For further image control, users can chose from several White Balance settings and a variety of automatic shooting modes such as Portrait, Landscape, Moving Object, Macro and more.

Developed specifically for use with the Samsung GX-1S is the Schneider D-XENON 18mm~55mm lens. World renowned Schneider optics have long been a defining feature of Samsung's high-end digital still camera models, and the GX-1S is no exception. The GX-1S will be available as a body only, or bundled with the D-XENON lens as a kit. For added convenience the GX-1S can be used with many Pentax DSLR lens and KAF2 and KAF mount lenses. Pricing and availability information will be provided at a later date.
