Are we backing a dead horse?
Jun 28, 2011

I’ve mentioned this before but as I don’t see much improvement I thought I’d see what the rest of you think.

Sales for Japan, no sign of Samsung!

The site went whacky along with all their other CSC sites, they fixed them all except the NX one, which remains messed up. They seem to think it’s not worth the effort.

Still no dedicated area on dpreview, unlike much newer camera Sony Nex.

Not many people posting here given the time NX has been around.

DigitalRev TV Best of the Worst Awards 2010 (search youtube, just over half way through), Samsung NX100 voted pink spanner of the year.

Not in a great many outlets. I was in Jessops in England and the assistant was pushing every CSC type except the NX to an interested buyer.

Now some of you may argue that if you like your choice and I still like the NX over the alternatives, does it matter. Well the views of others do matter, I don’t want the NX to be a niche market as that normally means expensive and lacking support. I want the NX to be very popular so third party manufacturers get behind it with lots great lenses and gadgets. If the new models don’t answer the critics issues Samsung’s talk of domination in this market will be ridiculed. Come on Samsung get your finger out, you could start with some decent advertising.
