Nice work by everyone, especially Amadou. Would like to see more articles like this. Frees up the staff from review "responsibility." And, yes, the reviews are a big responsibility, as they carry great weight in the photo community and impact buying decisions.
Rangefinder photography lets the world flow into your camera. Reflex photography captures it. There is a difference in vision, approach to life.
Wouldn't it be better to do by telemetry. I guess that is the next advance.
Welcome to the photographic community. Maybe, these are creative, talented, driven folks who will come up with many interesting products. Don't we want entrepreneurs?
Thanks for reviewing. Look forward to reading.
justmeMN: Con: No Automatic Exposure Bracketing, just like the D3100. Geez, even my 2003 Canon G5 compact camera has AEB. How backwards of Nikon. AEB is a convenient way to get a perfectly exposed photo under tricky lighting conditions. It's not just about use with HDR software.
My Pentax 33L, same year, has exposure, white balance, contrast and saturation bracketing. I think your Canon G5 also has focus bracketing. I agree, this isn't a difference maker like focus speed, viewfinder size and coverage, AF points, processor power, etc. that should determine price points.
I agree. The text, which I trust, doesn't support the number,
Jeff has paid his dues. Good move.
Kudos to Fuji. Actually, there have been several sensor replacement programs in digital camera history. Reading reviews on Amazon, etc. manufacturers seem to be less "sensitive" to the perhaps more prevalent "Lens Zoom-Error" ones???
I do applaud Nikon for having serial #s on the batteries. Of the many vintage cameras I've worked with, very early Minolta and Sony batteries had them. All proprietary camera batteries should have serial numbers just for this reason—and especially when an OEM (i.e. Panasonic) is insisting that only its branded battery be used in a camera, not to mention that some branded batteries cost almost as much as a point and shoot camera. How else can you issue consumer advisories, recalls, honor the battery warranty,etc.
Nice gallery. One the best. Varied photos. Plenty of people pix. I think this camera will be a huge success. Looks sharp. Excellent image quality.
Seems like a neat and useful app for just 3 bucks. 645 PRO = Medium Format Quality? Please do review it.
Gesture: What about manual focusing capabilities? And I would love to see multiple spot metering on the modern dSLR. My Olympus C-2040 has it!
JoeDaBassPlayer: Focus Peaking is an absolute necessity for a mirrorless camera. It is a crippled toy without it.
I just got my K 01 and can laugh at the reviewers that disliked it. It is a serious tool. Video rocks. IQ is about as good as it gets. Clean ISO 3200+ and one can focus accurately in very low light with focus peaking.
Once you actually use it, you can see why it is the way it is.
Yes. Even over focus peaking, I would like a greater magnified view, as Panasonic provides.
Aleo Veuliah: Good design, similar to the Panasonic Lumix G cameras with built in EVF
Samsung does a lot better than Sony, it has good lenses
Some of the comments are amazing. The NX 5/10/11 is one of the best-designed contemporary cameras. Period. The only thing I see comparable is the Panasonic GH2. From what I read, Samsung's sensor isn't quite up to snuff, esp. higher ISO. Still, for everyday photography, the NX10 image quality is excellent and it has favorable pictorial quality. The main thing I would improve is the manual focus assist. Panasonic does it quite well.
Just include the Wi-Fi as a standard feature=value.

D1N0: NX20 is ugly! I sure hope the external flash on the 210/1000 van pop-up instead of flashing the top of the lens.
Most dSLRs remind of the cockpit of a space craft and are just as confusing. The NX 5/10/11/20 is the best designed, most fluid digital camera I have ever encountered. Its coherent and solid.
thewhitehawk: It's a shame that the compact models don't seem to have as many manual controls as the Nex cameras, at least the Nex 7's. This seems more user-friendly oriented than enthusiast-oriented, it seems to be more in line with the Nex 5 or the Olympus Pen series.
They do look nice though. Not that it matters much to some photographers, but the construction quality and design seems to rival (or borrow heavily) from Sony's cameras, like Samsung usually does.
These are the most full-featured, adept, yet fluid to use cameras I have ever encountered. Many on these forums aspire to something akin to the very best compact SLRs of the film era (Nikon FM/FE, Contax 139, Minoltax X, Pentax ME, etc.) The only two cameras I know that fulfill this are the Panasonic GH2 and the Samsung NX5/10/11, now 20. Regardless of sensor performance, which is fine, and kit lens quality, which I think is excellent, the Samsung cameras are outstanding from a veteran user standpoint. Even the iFunction on the lens, which didn't attract me at first, is a powerful feature.
