    Great-looking camera there. Price: $699. So, let's see . . .

  • A friendly note of caution. You might find that women who appear at the edges of a group or candid shot don't share your opinion of how little distortion a 28mm (equivalent) lens renders. They ...
  • "I will use the 9 - 18mm outside the most, but a lot of people are saying that there's no need for a polarizer here - what are your thoughts?" A polarizing filter is worthwhile to have on hand. Its ...
  • Guy did a nice job of explaining about the crop factor, but since you apparently haven't had experience with different lenses on a 35mm camera from the pre-digital era, you lack that frame of ...
  • M1963, thanks for pointing the way to an excellent read.

    photoshack, Rehm noted and illustrated the lens' deficiencies and included its price — the highest I've seen for one of these. If you deem...

  • Lars Rehm, I hope you've learned a lesson. When your audience is packed with photography elitists and humorless hardware snobs, you better not review inexpensive things designed for fun. If an...

  • "If there is an EVF option (built-in or external), I'll buy the updated camera and . . ." Amen. I do hope the EVF would be built in and not a brutally expensive accessory.
  • Agreed. Pro's require technically superb equipment because they deal with editors, art directors and others who require the best possible IQ.  Enthusiasts have choices. Some seem to be obsessive ...
  • I, too, have the NX Mini, with 9mm prime and the 9-27mm zoom. I find the Mini's IQ to be impressive, and its metering and focus capabilities topnotch.  The Mini's biggest drawback is lack of an ...
  • You have put together a nice, flexible outfit. The fisheye is a good little lens that requires some familiarization and practice at first.  Its rudimentary markings aren't much help in setting the ...
  • Hitherto, I had the same impression. But, after spending some time looking at images made with the 9mm BCL at flikr, I'm impressed with what it can do. Did you follow the link in a preceding post ...
  • What a splendid series of city snow scenes.
  • ren7ee, it looks as though all you have to do to see a larger version of your images at Photobucket is click on one of them. Have you tried that?  If you have and still got a very small image on ...
  • Both images are very good, but I especially like the second one. Including the door (or cabinet?) on the right was an excellent composition choice, one that works better in the second image. While ...
  • Nice shots. The bridge and cornfield with truck images evoke memories of being in similar places at similar times and atmospheric conditions.
  • I was there also and couldn't agree more. Coincidental to this Kodak announcement and the above story, I picked up a Sony CX405 video camera. It's a well-received and popular model from 2013 if I...

  • I'm trying to remember ever hearing anyone long for the good old days of Super 8 movies, and drawing a blank. Even if the quoted prices are intended to be suggested list prices at introduction, ...

  • It's an OK picture of the place, if that's what you wanted to show. Composition wise, my eye looks for a strong center of interest in this image and gets drawn this way and that, because the bird, ...
  • Replied in Veritable fall
    Very nice shots. Great composition and handling of light. I'm glad you came away without serious injury. I hope your camera did as well.
