1000$ is a steal.I guess we'll soon see the new Galaxy NX2 android camera:
Curved Touchscreen.Curved EVF.Curved Body.3000$.
I guess they still sell quite a few copies if the price goes down to 1200-1300$.
In the Samsung forum people are already comparing it to the EOS 70D and explain how much worse the 70D is compared to the Galaxy NX.
Rooru S: Sony just announced a 399.99USD camera with 20MP sensor while Samsung announced a 1699.99USD with 20MP sensor... guess there is more money in South Korea than in Japan since this is absurd.
Yes - without EVF (not even optional) and with a very slow buffer and a sensor that can't keep up at ISO 800+.
plus you're comparing the sony msrp with the samsung street price....
msrp would be 400$ (sony) vs 600$ (samsung)
What people completely ignore is the fact that this is the only camera that has "smarter SMART features".
"smart was yesterday. smarter smart is the smart of tomorrow - today!"
Michael Barkowski: Unusual priorities. A $1700 bundle, and there is no standard zoom available other than the basic 18-55mm. Not even a third-party option. And yet they have announced an NX fisheye.
they have the very good 20-50mm zoom. btw for the price of the galaxy nx you can buy an nx1000 + almost all their lenses.
Too bad that Hasselblad already fell in love with Sony. This would be a superb camera for them to put some wood, leather and their logo on it and ask 10.000$ per copy.
making a supersized copy of your johnson has never been so easy!
they could put a hybrid viewfinder into the next model...
no parallax correction necessary, always 1:1 field of view no matter which lens
best of both worlds, and this would make sensor pdaf actually useful for still photography.
they could even use the sensor pdaf for a more accurate kind of focus peaking while in EVF mode...
They better make it weather proof.
Taking all the moisture problems and void warranty issues with the existing samsung phones into account I'd think twice about buying such a monstrosity....
anthony mazzeri: "The Leica X Vario is the world’s first compact camera to combine a large, APS-C format, CMOS image sensor with a zoom lens."
So what about the Ricoh GXR A16 24-85mm released a year and a half ago?
It's actually even smaller in every dimension when it comes to being a compact. And it's also wider at 24mm and faster F5.5 and longer at 85mm.
Ricoh needs to get better PR/marketing people.
what about the canon g1x?
tesilab: Mr Butler: the extended preview seems indicate that Sony has explicitly stated that the peaking feature was purposely modified to be available only for focus-assist magnified view. Do I read that right?
It seems like a terrible mistake, and the rationale doesn't make sense in my experience using the feature on NEX with truly shallow DOF lenses. Also I asked a Sony rep about this at a B&H event, and he claims an engineer has told him this would be "fixed".
Can you please tell us how you came by this information?
that's interesting. what's the difference between the 7 and 5n then when it comes to focus peaking? the 5n peaking works pretty well with my minolta 50mm at f1.4
fenceSitter: I guess we have to be grateful that Sony pretends to be listening at last, but this update for the NEX-7 is disappointing nonetheless.
The bracketing is still useless because you can't combine it with delayed shutter or remote, so you can't use it with long exposure times on a tripod. Have these people never taken pictures themselves?
And why they didn't take the opportunity to let the user re-assign the movie button instead of merely disabling it?
I guess it would have been hard work. This update looks like a cheap and half-assed quick fix, the sort of thing that I'd come up with after one afternoon to pacify the customer "until the real thing comes along."
Having had to wait almost one year for this "update" doesn't elevate my opinion of Sony very much.
please read carefully. it's not about shutter speed as such but about delayed shutter or remote shutter release. both help a lot when it comes to long time exposures and those modes are not possible on nex cameras together with bracketing.
it is either remote OR delay OR bracketing.
