One of the best portraits I've ever seen. Is this cropped or original?
Very nice. Was the red so much...red? Orrr did you enhance it in pp?
sfpeter: I'm as attached to a mirror as I am to whether you turn the on switch left or right. Right now mirrorless cameras are for the most part like advanced bridge cameras that can change lenses. Give me a mirrorless that is full frame, has the picture quality, battery life, and performance of a DSLR ad I'd use it. It HAS to have an EVF, and really the only shooting advantage I've seen is the display shows more clearly what the end result image will look like. Otherwise I keep feeling like mirrorless is the tablets of the camera world, something manufacturers tell us we need but we're not too sure yet.
Samsung could release the perfect mirrorless if just they packed most of nx1 in a compact body WITH evf. But they won't, and no representative replies on the why.
Birdy1970: wow how fast the reviews for nikon and canon always ready.why ths samsung nx1 review need so much longer?
I hope you'll test af with a subject moving fast towards the camera, comparing the results with 7d mk2 and d750 (similar price). I also hope you'll compare iq with those and few others (a6000, d7100).
Since they say they listen to customers, please do this also for older (still produced) models (since they did NOT before), and have a read at this topic, started more than one year and half ago:
tecnoworld: Really interesting is the bad result of nx1. This shows the total lack of interest in nx cameras.
It should be priced at one half, to attract interest. Probably not even then it would.
Mike, I totally agree with you. Nx1 is definitely overhyped and I hope the dpr review will seriously test its af on real world situations, so to demonstrate that it struggles with moving subjects (several users reported that already).
Nx30 is also very cheap, at about 400€. The problem is that all the nx with evf are almost as big as a dslr, defeating the best conceptual advantage of mirrorless, imo.
Mike, you are right, I think most wise ppl would go Fuji, but perhaps few brave ppl could at least "try" the nx1, if it costed one half. I can't see many ppl giving it a try at the current pricepoint!
Ok, so is it me deciding the results of this poll? ;-)
P.s. better detesting a brand (which btw is not my case) than a person (which is your case) and trolling that person. Pathetic.

I tried to take a similar shot months ago, but my camera (samsung nx300 with the 45/1.8 lens) is too slow to focus on moving targets to get the ball sharp enough.
I wonder if you prefocused or if the d800 can actually focus this fast and sharp on an approaching ball.
Great shot, btw.
Very nice! How did you achieve such a sharp picture at 1/60 of shutter?
Samuel Dilworth: The very enthusiastic reception for this camera surprises me.
To me it seems like just another fractional iteration of Nikon’s FX platform, largely put together from existing or tweaked technology modules. It does little or nothing to solve the big problems causing SLR sales to fall. (It doesn’t even have a built-in GPS receiver for geotagging.) Unless I’m missing something, it has nothing that might attract a new type of customer either. Even the design is a nondescript, black blob indistinguishable from any other Nikon SLR to a causal observer. It practically defines banality.
What is there to get excited about? The main innovation seems to be a novel, cost-cutting construction technique – not that you’d notice as a buyer, since a D750 sells for $800 more than the functionally similar D610 (itself overpriced).
Obviously it’s not for me, but I can appreciate many cameras that aren’t. This one defeats me. Maybe my expectations are out of whack.
Vignes, I agree with you 100%.
tecnoworld: D750! The only dslr that made me...want a dslr again!
Yes, since 2011.
D750! The only dslr that made me...want a dslr again!
Happy that the neat, small, fast and reasonably priced a6000 is easily winning over those funny "dslr alike" mirrorless cameras!
Ppl stepping into mirrorless, on average, are tired of the dslr shape. Buttt want evf and performance in a small and nice looking body.
tecnoworld: A wonderful camera, its af performance makes me think of going back to dslr, after the poor performanve of even the best mirrorless around, but...I'll wait and see what the a9 can deliver.
Hello Jo! I agree, they are large (d750 is significantly smaller than d800) but samsung nx1 is almost as heavy as d750 (150gr less, that are almost nothing when you have a > 1.3 kg combo). And costs almost the same, at least here in Italy they are at about 130€ delta!
And d750 is so much better in everything (but the frame rate, which is actually a gimmick for my use when over 6-7fps).

I'd also like to see a comparison, af wise, with nikon d750. On paper the two are not direct competitors, but I've seen tests in which the d750 destroys the new samsung nx1 in af tracking. Ok, it can do only 6.5fps, but most of them in focus and...outstanding iq.
tecnoworld: Gorgeous! Did you use a polarizer for the sky?
Thx for replying. The picture is really outstanding.
