Talking of the video recording feature of the camera, it can capture a 1080p video at 30fps. For this tiny form factor, a new lens mount system was necessary and new lens were needed to fit inside the tiny camera. The new lenses will include a 9mm f/3.5 ED, a 9-27mm f/3.5-5.6 ED OIS and a 17mm f/1.8 OIS. There will be an adaptor to use existing NX mount lenses too, but that one will set you back $150.
