tonyreidsma: Hmmm... Seems I'll be buying another camera soon, and it won't be another SONY. I have TWO a7s bodies, an a6000, and an a5100. I've been watching the 4K movement, and was hoping it would die, but it seems Samsung is serious about getting into this market. I'll be watching Samsung's reliability over the course of 6 months or so.
The only annoying part is you Howhaboutraw, you dont know what an ATOMOS SHOGUN recorder is (its a 4k recorder) I was responding to the OP's idea of buying a nx1 for 4k. The OP wants an NX1 for 4k VIDEO recording. Instead of spending the $2800 on a NX1 kit, He already has TWO a7s in hand. which he can buy a 4k ATOMOS SHOGUN recorder for $1500-$2000 (used is $1500). You suddenly jump in an recommend two NON 4k video cameras, one of which doesnt even record video at all!
Maybe you need to check your reading comprehension.
That does not apply to this situation. Df does not do video, and the d4s is $5000 and does not do 4k.
I was saying, dont spend the money on a nx1 kit when you can buy a shogun instead.
If you already have an A7s, you spend the money on a shogun recorder rather than buying a nx1 kit.
a7s kills any camera in high ISO, also bitrate and has flat color profile.
Thats a silly move, buying another body when you have a better video machine already.
coody: Why can't it be designed better from the beginning but has to go through the firmware updating? Can the firmware perfectly resolve the flaw? Usually the more firmware updating has, the more problems the product has.
"Fuji may have designed hardware so far ahead of its time that they just now know how to make the best of it. "
Yeah a whole 15 days older than the a6000
The canon 70d is a year older than the xt1 and still has all these features from release day.
nemist: If only they would quit re-iterating their old sensors with bogus RAW support I think quite a few more users would be highly interested, myself included. I do applaud Fuji's continuing care of customers though. Please take note, SONY!!!
These were already common features already standard in many companies, so they really didn't have to add things that were already there.
I do like the PIP focus, dont get me wrong, but to wait a whole year to get eye AF, manual focus during AF, smooth focus pull from video, tethered shooting, 24p video is sort of silly.
@Just A Photgorapher
I will actually cite it for you, this is version 3.0 firmware released in November 2014
"2. Shutter SoundThe shutter sound can be muted if desired. (This function is incorporated in X-T1 Graphite Silver Edition.)"
"6. AF+MF"AF+MF" function enables seamless manual focusing. After half pressing the shutter to autofocus on the subject, fine adjustment can then be made using the manual focus ring."
thats just two things of a list of things that other manufactures (notice I not mentioning any specific brand) had already done with their cameras.
This is more than 6 months after release.
Also, xt1 was announced end of January, the a6000 is about 15 days after.
Have you even read some of the earlier changes? "able to turn off shutter sound" and.. "manual focus with auto focus"
Fuji isnt giving you anything, just playing catch up to everyone else.
Fuji is fixing stuff and adding things that the a6000 had when it first launched...
Its like buying a 3 wheeled car from the dealer and then it takes them a year to add on the 4th when everyone else has already been driving with 4 wheels from other manufacturers.
RichRMA: If only Sony actually made money. From astechnica:
We knew things were bad at Sony, but we didn’t know they were this bad.After years of losses, Sony is hacking off unprofitable parts of the company.In its latest earnings report, the company announced Wednesday that it had sustained a net loss of $1.246 billion during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014. Last fiscal year, Sony managed to profit $435 million, its first profit in years—it has missed profits in six of the last seven years.
Way to pull numbers a year old. Bravo.
mpgxsvcd: GoPros 4K footage almost looks like 1080p. Not quite though.
And its crappy gopro
Because its 60mbps
Michael Ma: The problem with buying this camera is that Samsung is likely to introduce a camera with double the specs with an ILC system, RAW, bigger APC-S sensor at half the price this year, and then top themselves every year. If they haven't already.
I hear Samsung is even trying to work with Magic Lantern developers for the next update of the NX1.
Watch your assets when working with Samsung.
smhmn: Garmin really missed on this "update." Specs that are about the equal of a Hero4 Silver on a product to be on the market a couple of months before the Hero4 Silver's successor is. No attempt at class leading 4k video, or building on their near class leading battery lift of the existing products. Instead we get a late me-too product with poor battery life and fewer sensors, and they altered the mounts so that any of the previous generation's are junk. Thanks Garmin.
Sony had this for 3 years now... Plus the as200v can also do loop recording.
Ben O Connor: Sony tries to say to those, who owns the old hotshue model with optional evf
Man, that optional evf was more expensive than most 32" TELEVISIONS!!!!!!
Yes, the evf was made for the rx1, people just bought it to use with the 50v, but its intent was for the rx. iys a $450 vf for a $2800 camera.
The evf was made for a $2800 camera.
keeponkeepingon: I think the title, "a class of it owns" just goes to show how dorked up the DPREVIEW sensor size based camera classification system is.
With the kit lens this is almost a $3000 camera. It should be compared to other $3000 cameras regardless of sensor size.
Also I don't see how any camera that has problems focusing in low light could be given a gold?
If I want a quick sunny day camera, I'll use my iPhone thank you very much.
"Try to price out a weather sealed 16-50mm f/2-2.8 lens with ED glass and OIS in any other system!"
$1598 body + lens
WetCoast: And A77 II review? ;)
I am thinking Samsung paid them to mute the A77M2.
