If you're looking for a fast shooting professional grade compact camera, then the Samsung NX1 Camera ($1500) might be just what the doctor ordered. The camera features a new 28 megapixel BSI sensor and the ability to shoot 4k video. The really cool thing is the new DRIMe V image processor which is 2.8 times faster than its predecessor. It can shoot a whopping 15 frames per second in continuous mode. While the Auto Focus System features 205 detection points. This gives you superior tracking and an autofocus speed of .055 sec. And what about low light shooting. Well they have you covered here as well. The APS-C BSI Sensor has a sensitivity range between 100 and 25600. This can even be extended to 51200. Now if they offered this bad boy with a full-frame sensor this might be the perfect MILC.
