Why are Samsung cameras not more popular?
5 months ago

I am just wondering what people think about this. Is it because the company doesn't have more of a history in photography? Too consumer oriented? Reliability issues?

I do have my reasons for asking- I bought an NX300 after trying MANY, MANY mirrorless cameras, and I really liked it- except it had touchscreen issues and I had to return it. So I am trying to decide if I should rebuy or not. I think the camera has great ergonomics, I loved the 30mm pancake, the price is right, etc. But not many people seem to love it, the resale value seems terrible, and the price is going down, down, down every time I look at it. Is it underrated, or am I missing something?

My main camera is a 5D Mark iii, I shoot my kids primarily, and I have been looking for a smaller camera. I almost feel like the NX300 might be the answer, just wondering about perspectives others might have about Samsung...
