NX200: The good and bad
Aug 31, 2011

Good:

  • Samsung kept this a streamlined upgrade. Better materials and build, slimmer and sleeker, didn't muck with control layout much, left some basic stuff the same (like 600K OLED, 2 wheels).

  • 20MP sensor is looking quite good from the early samples.

  • ISO 12,800 and the chance you might actually want to use it.

  • Digital IS in body - I'm surprised at this, it'll be interesting to see how useful it really is.

  • 1080P Video

  • 7 FPS

  • Somehow improved (?) iFunction 2.0

  • 3D without special lenses

Bad:

  • No (still) integrated flash.

  • $899 is a surprise, and not a good one. They're solidly in NEX territory.

  • No swivel/tilt screen.

  • OLED resolution not improved.

...What do you think?
