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.
Sdaniella: Now that Canon C-Log Gamma control is available for their Cine EOS dSLR model, which utilizes a variation of ExpSim LV for video, I hope they will offer C-Log Gamma control for STILL PHOTOGRAPHY too, where its 'flatter' non-to-low gamma correction can be previewed and compared to a gamma corrected image (RAW or JPEG).I've asked numerous times before for a Zero Gamma Corrected JPG so that the maximum DR for a given exposure-and-sensitivity can be preview, as though shooting RAWwe know that over the years, even RAW has been slightly compressed by Gamma correction anyway, where in the past there was deliberately none at all, where RAW was truly RAW.And I asked for it in the form of 'Custom DR Curve' control, little did I realize it is referred to in the video world as Log (curve) Gamma control.Having this will allow us to better assess optimal DR contrast and color intensities/saturation for exposure-sensitivity, as well as colors shift for both the darkest and brightest lit surfaces
Great comment and insight.
Owners will have to take a operating certification course. Simplify. Simplify. Seriously, an impressive effort by Canon matching Nikon's recent announcements.
Cy Cheze: High quality at low ISO is pretty much what all contemporary cameras can provide. Is higher resolution meaningful either? Some say that we already have more megapixels than the eye can see on screen, unless it is a huge 8k screen at theater distance. If detection of the difference requires blowing up the image for pixel peeping, that's like saying we should value clothing by how it looks at the fiber level: fashion shows with a microscope.
It's sort of like candy being rated by its chocolatey taste. Yes, there might be deluxe sweets, but a mere $1 Hershey bar is pretty good too. Ditto for beer.
In exactly which cases has the Foveon sensor been a commercial or functional success? Or must go beyond questions of utlity and learn, like an eccentric millionaie or artist, to appreciate the quirky or deviant?
Perhaps the Foveon is, like a Tesla auto or a pet hippo, the sort of curiousity that gives great thrills precisely twice: 1) the day you buy it, and 2) the day you sell it.
Good thoughts. I think the better comparison is to the belated Fuji S series of dSLRS, Swam a different current and for certain users was a great one. With all the great things digital has brought, we have lost interest in unique lens or sensor (film) quality because it can all be simulated in processing. Doesn't one company thrive on a set of filters that emulate all our favorite black and white films.
Prognathous: It's amusing that dpreview considered Live View to be "a solution looking for a problem" when they first encountered it in a DSLR - the Olympus E330. Now they consider it to the "The missing feature". How things have changed.
Yes. Said the same thing below. I think the next advance must be a dual eyepiece viewfinder for the best cameras, as Fuji is doing.
Thanks for reviewing. Would be interesting to see what would happen if that sensor were put in the Nikon, Pentax and Sony comparable cameras you cite.
"The missing feature - Live View" Yes, I agree. In fact, if SLRs are to thrive in the days ahead, I would like Live View on the back and both optical with heads-up display and EVF through the eye piece. Fuji is to be applauded. Eye-level viewing and composing still have many advantages. Interesting, in earlier days of dpreview, the reviews keep saying "Can't imagine anyone would need live-view"! Times have changed.
