  • I had planned to buy the mini for the same reasons as you, but was unable to find the 17mm anywhere in the UK, except for one on ebay which was bought before I had a chance to bid - was that you ! ...
  • I am finding that my NX3000 is not the most versatile camera on the market, but that I can live with it's compromises, especially when I get round to buying a fast prime. At the current John ...
  • Created discussions Which prime for the NX3000
    Now that I have an unexpected rebate to play with, I'm wondering which is the best prime to go for. I want the most "general purpose" and affordable one, which will give some ability to produce ...
  • Blimey ! Before I saw your post I rang John Lewis customer service, who were extremely helpful and almost immediately agreed to refund the £80. What an incredible service! I can now use that refund ...
  • I also got mine from John Lewis last week for £279, and am well miffed that it's dropped by £80. However, John Lewis appears to have a 90 day returns policy for any reason. What's the morality of ...
  • Meant to say in my first response that I found the camera with the 16-50mm lens was quite pocketable in my gilet's pocket, especially if the camera lies on it's back in the pocket. Ray
  • Thanks Cem - I already have a supply of LCD covers. The first thing I do when getting a new camera is to put one of these on, both for minimising reflections and to protect the LCD from scratches. ...
  • Thanks Henry - can't say I'm too familiar with dog poop bags, but I get the general idea. More prosaically, I understand from other forums discussing solutions to this problem using screens that ...
  • Created discussions Maybe the NX3000 for me.
    To my surprise (not!) Samsung Marketing did not react to my ultimatum to release the 17mm f1.8 lens for the NX Mini, in the UK before 31st. August. So I won't be buying that then. Now in my ...
  • Does anyone know of an IOS app. That takes 3 bracketed shots and keeps them for pp HDR ? Ray
  • And a very well said from me also. Ray
  • Created discussions P7800 still high price
    I've been looking at the possibility of going to the P7800 as my "one and only", but am surprised that the price is still at £379 not only in the UK but also at the usual Asian ebayers. Stocks ...
  • Replied in X20 AEB
    Many thanks for the info. - it's as I expected. Looks like the X30 will be the same. Ray
  • Created discussions X20 AEB
    Can anyone tell me if the X20 AEB system can take 3 shots each 2 stops apart ? Ray
  • You're welcome ! Ray
  • VERY true, Stan! However, it looks like their version doesn't come with either LR5 or as part of the Samsung trade-up scheme, which runs out on the 31st August. Curry's currently have it with both ...
  • Created discussions NX2000 - UK price bargain
    The UK internet branch of Littlewoods, called VERY, emailed me yesterday announcing some special offers, including the NX2000 twin lens - 20-50 + 16mm - for £279, which seems an astonishing price. ...
  • Replied in ZR850 vs ZR800
    Our old friends Mobicity still have the ZR800 at £157 and the ZR850 at £169. Ray
  • Thanks very much Ntsan, that's the site I mentioned earlier in this thread which I couldn't remember the name of, but it's now much more extensive. Is that in Japanese or Korean do you know ? The ...
  • Created discussions NX Mini - ultimatum
    Having more or less convinced myself that the Mini with the 17mm f1.8 is just the camera equipment I've been waiting for -  subject to one more try out at Jessop's with the 9mm. lens - I'm telling ...
