spatz: Lytro is fantastic with a viewer that supports eye tracking.
That changes everything. Without it, no more than a gimmick.
That's not the point. The point is to be able to set the focus after you shot it.
RichRMA: Kind of pointless, to an extent. Most people who watch on TVs sit too far back to even SEE what 4K can show, so where is the advantage? It just sucks up more memory and processing power. Increase frame rate on 2k to 120fps, it would be much better.
Not everybody has a tiny 42" screen. Even 65" screens are cheap these days and you can see the difference easily.
ageha: No touch screen...
The new screen is also smaller. :(
Ashuaria Lee: NX3000 seems to be successor of NX2000.However, the H/W seems a little cheap(no GPS, small LCD, no Touch and blahblahblah..)But, has a light weighted small body and probably nice PowerZoom lens and Low price.Let's see the JPEG quality.
The NX3000 seems to be more a successor of the NX1100. The NX2000 is still a better camera.
HendeHoq: Looks very good and with a classic controls. Hope Samsung weird experiments on NX line are gone.
Classic controls? Sure...
Gesture: Beautiful camera. Excellent sensor. Great focus accuracy. World-class ergonomics. AND a great kit focal length.
Any links to the photos you shot with it?
Michael Ma: I would like to see Samsung take on the A7S with and incorporate a Samsung SSD into it. Only fear is at the last minute, they'll change their mind the last second to put a 12 megapixel sensor for a 40 megapixel one and not even register on people's radar.
Before they slap a SSD into it they need to develop a full-frame sensor and at least one full-frame lens.
No touch screen...
XVOYAGERX: Very nice, very sharp picture of a beautiful lady, most of these pictures taken with this lens look in my opinion to be superior from what i have seen from Canon, Nikon, Sony etc so far, superb, well done again Panasonic!!!!
You're kidding, right?
Alex Bayraktarov: It looks like the lens is excellent but there is also the Olympus 45 mm 2.8,which has been said to deliver outstanding images(let alone for a lense of its price).The Panasonic costs nearly 5 times as much.I just love taking photos and by no means can i call myself a photographer.But still i can not help but ask myself the question,is it really worth it paying 5 times more for 2 f stops.The olympus 45 mm 2.8 has gotten quite impressive reviews all over the place.It is a long way from $350(or whatever it sells for) to $1600.
The 45mm f/2.8 is a Panasonic, the 45mm f/1.8 is an Olympus.
kecajkerugo: despite it is the tructh or not....it does not matter anything to the real pictures quality! Show your best pictures to your friends and familiy on the best available device (like 50 or something inch 4K LCD) and observe wheher anybody will be discussing the camera lens correction needs, electronic or not. Anybody will be asking you to zoom in to say 400% to see your pixels?No, noby wull even notice that! All it will be noticed is the substance of your photos shown! So for this community such endless discussion may bring some "value" (value of wasting your time) but has nothing to do with real art or even joy associated with making photos.
dpreview.com isn't about "the art of making photos", it's about gear reviews. If you're not interested in technical details don't waste time here.
David V: I would not be surprised if this camera were contracted out to another manufacturer altogether (including lenses). A quick and lucrative way for Leica to drop a red dot on them and charge the faithful an exorbitant amount of cash, believing that they are getting Leica quality in a smaller, "more affordable" package.
The lenses look like Panasonic m4/3 lenses and are "consumer grade" slow. The sample images that were posted here are overwhelmingly ordinary. I'll keep my Fuji X gear, thank you.
Indeed the lenses look like Panasonic styled them for Leica, they look very low quality compared to the body.
Looking at the ISO 3200 images, photos from Nikon's V1 look much cleaner at that speed. The sunny weather photos are looking OK but so does a Sony Z1 at good light. JPGs seem over processed and the lens doesn't seem to be very sharp.
beavertown: 12 fps + 60fps in Jpg, APS-C Sensor, that puts Nikon 1 system to great shame.
Well done Sony.
lol, of course. (－‸ლ)
VaLeX: If egami's blog turns into a source of "news" for dpreview, how about having a piece of news on the Olympus 6-24mm F1.4-1.8 (1/1.7" sensor) - allegedly the lens of the future ZX-3?http://egami.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2013-01-08Or maybe Sony uses dpreview as a platform for launching "official rumors"? A special "partnership"?
You don't need to work for someone to sign a NDA. If they got presented preproduction samples or have gotten review samples they might have signed a NDA.
The body looks like an incarnation of Samsung's old NV line of cameras. Nice copy...
Why did they copy the lens design from Panasonic? They cool cheap.
Robo2k: Those samples are extremely disappointing. Almost all of them are horribly exposed. Then again, this is my biggest complaint with DPR previews/reviews in general. How do you manage to make every camera look so damn terrible? I mean this set barerly scratches the possibilities of this camera (or any camera for that matter)!
Your reviews might be wordefully meticulous (an honest praise!) but, man, your samples galleries (and especially this one) are the worst.
Horshack: With the advent of very fast CDAF (and CDAF/PDAF hybrid designs) plus 11fps such as on the A6000 I wonder if this technology can be acceptably replicated by using an automated focus-bracket mechanism, where the camera's processor identifies different focus subjects in the scene and brackets to each. The user can later select one of the photos for selective focus on a particular subject or the camera can create a focus-stacked composite for when deep DOF is desired.
