On Island life: Samsung NX500 Shooting Experience article (163 comments in total)

It's a bit unfair to knock it for lack of EVF when there will likely be an NX50.

Only photographers would complain about too much sunshine in Hawaii. And photographers from Seattle at that.

shademaster: Dear Samsung: Thanks for the 2nd control dial on the back!

Yeah… I decommissioned my NX200 with a drop onto hard tile floor and had a "forced upgrade". NX200 had the 4-way controller/control dial. It was OK, but I think the dedicated dial will be nicer. However, I've gotten used to pushing the EV-comp button to change the function of the dial on my NX300 and it's not so clunky. I often shoot in M/Auto-ISO or M/ISO-200/TTL-flash, so two dials is nice.

In reply to:

Rdmkr: Shrinking camera bodies is a losing deal, because to make it matter the lens has to be shrunk as well, which is always to the serious detriment of optical quality. This is why I think the mirrorless ILC is overrated; it's like putting a u4/3 lens on an APS-C sensor and pretending it's just as good. It occupies this narrow and inhospitable grey area between a compact or bridge camera that goes all in on the "good enough" mentality and the DSLR that brooks no compromises.

When you put a serious lens on a DSLR, the weight of the mirror system and optical viewfinder is comparatively not a big deal. That's why we don't need mirrorless. What we need is mirrorless focus technology on the sensor of DSLRs so Live View works well when we need it.

You apparently haven't used a small NX body with the 30mm f/2.0. It's a "serious" lens. I take it to parties/events, and it lives in my backpack when I'm traveling for work. I would never do that with a DSLR.

I also use the even more "serious" (read: "heavy") NX 85mm f/1.8 all the time on my NX300. I hold the lens barrel. I'm thinking about getting the 16-50 S to use on NX300. I don't see the problem.

dwl017: Sorry my Samsung NX300 with 45mm F1.8 prime will blow this thing out of the water. Im sorry but $900 for m4/3 fixed lens is surely a joke. No way in the world with so many other options. You would be better off with a first edition Sony RX100

Any detachable lens alternative is a much better buy.

if you want a bright-ish but not super-bright zoom, get this. if you want primes on an ILC get an ILC. what's so difficult about that concept? I AM tempted to get RX100 or LX100, but I'm NOT tempted to GIVE UP my NX300.

Also: is "performance" deprecated in favor of "shooting experience" now? I'd like to see some comments on AF performance. Are we to assume "AF is at least as good as FZ1000"?

But tell us what you really think…

But seriously, cons: "no articulating display". I don't need touchscreen, but I really want the flexibility to shoot at eye level with EVF OR waist level on the screen. Lack of tilt is a huge downside and a draw for RX100 mkiii.

Your " Samsung NX300 with 45mm F1.8 prime will blow this thing out of the water" right up until the point where you try to zoom out...

In reply to:

JEROME NOLAS: It's DSLR size, the 16-50mm lens is heavy and very expensive. What they were thinking about?

tecno, for years I would occasionally defend your anti-samsung attitudes when I felt people were bullying you on these boards. You express some valid preferences. But REALLY, day after day, month after month, year after year with the same complaints... Drop it already. Get a sony or fuji and complain about it instead.

In reply to:

justmeMN: Technical merit aside, in the US, Samsung has a brand problem. $2,799.00 for an off-brand camera? Good luck with that.

I thought the $2700 included the 16-50S AND the grip. So if you want the grip, it's a good deal. If you just want body+lens, buying them separately is a bit cheaper.

It would have been nice to have seen what the in-camera "Smart Range" Dynamic Range optimizer could have done. Are the tone curves adjustable in-camera?

In reply to:

shademaster: More like: "Who would buy an LX100 when they could buy a G7X?" It's obvious why someone would want an ILC to put on a fast prime or a fast telephoto zoom. What's not obvious is whether the 1/2 stop (effective), EVF, hand grip and hotshoe trump the longer lens, smaller size (jeans pocketable), tilting touchscreen, higher resolution, better relative sensor performance (given its size) and $200 cheaper price tag of the G7X. I'm probably going to go for a G7X for my birth-mas present this year to replace old S95. Not saying LX100 would be bad, but for me, G7X ticks more boxes.

sorry, I forgot about the 4K too. But I don't do much video, anyway.

On Opinion: Bring on the 70-200mm equivalents article (340 comments in total)

Hey, Sony. If you make an APS-C A-Mount 50-150 f/2.8 at 770g like the sigma, I'll buy it and an SLT.

Also: it is frustrating that all the long e-mount stuff is full frame. It would be nice to make an e-mount fast long zoom for aps-c that doesn't weight/cost a ton. I guess we'll all stick with samsung and fuji.
