crashpc: They´re gonna loose it. When I saw how ISO speed settings is burried in menus, I laughed so hard....
loving the fanboy. fanboy harder man.
Miki Nemeth: Definitely a Panasonic LX100 killer. Panasonic made a huge mistake not to add its excellent m4/3 tilting touch screen, neither mic-in to the LX100. Still, I wouldn't rush to buy an NX500. I am sure Sony is coming out soon the best of bests: A7Sii.
wow the claims that a LX100 would be sharper than the NX 28mp sensor stuff bafles me when you realise the LX100 only can resolve 12mp of resolution - not even near the effective resolution of Samsung's lenses...
Stephan Def: The price seems to be too high for that Camera. I don't see the average consumer needing 4K Video at 28MP today. Its unrealistic, in post processing you need huge processing power which most users are not going to have.
What Samsung should do is release a Model with 28MP for still images and reasonably good HD Video along with a good EVF and some other value added functions. I also think its very important to concentrate on rendering best possible jpegs right out of the box. The price range such a camera should be around 599€ I think that would sell really good.
Post processing Software is a huge issue for most if not all users. This is where the Japan manufacturers have their by far, biggest open flank. Digital Cameras today have to go hand-in-hand with good integrated post processing software in the box.
Which APS-C camera does 4k for $800?
Which APS-C camera on the market does more than 28 mpx?
Which APS-C camera on the market even has BSI?
Oh so now an A6000 is great because sony right?
Oh my god the XM1 and the XA1 don't have an EVF, they must be s***.
That's the logic I see here really...
Do people not realise Samsung makes two EVF models? The two digit and single (flagship) digit NX cameras?
Jostian: no built in flash or view finder....aarggh! otherwise it looks nice and features wise not a bad deal at the price.
Most of the market doesn't need an EVF.
Just buy your own HDMI one if its that important.
ThePhilips: "but its 16MP sensor struggles to compete with high-res APS-C chips"
DPR bias: there is no similar remark in the Canon 7D2 review.
The 7D Mk II in no way is a better low light camera than an A6000, or most of it's competition that are generally a generation behind in terms of release dates.
The sensor itself is only marginally better than the ancient 18MP canon sensor on their 700D.
This is from direct comparisons, testing files in a workflow, and reviews.
DPR is likely paid by canon to do dogs breakfast reviews. Note how they don't do the noise and image quality comparisons as directly between other cameras anymore?
i mean the camera isn;'t that important, its just a tool, but being misleading is an entirely different story.
quezra: NX1 is too much of a halo product and too little of a useful day-to-day camera. The price needs to come down before it can compete with the other mirrorless flagships, never mind DSLRs. This looks like the camera equivalent of the critically-acclaimed, tanks-at-the-box-office movie.
spidermoon: Good luck to Samsung, to sell, they must first made their product available. There is no NX1 on amazon.fr and even no mirrorless samsung at all on digitphoto.
This isnt their first product.
It's a fourth generation product.
NX1 is kind of a lot better in low light / DR..
Segaman: It will be a winner, and the people who trashes it, will be surprised, and frustrated.Gee, what a waste of time from these people.Canon is back.And it will sell
In your world, mate.
I see Impossible.
Impossible to afford.
rrr_hhh: Apparently, given the rhythm at which Canon is issuing new cameras, the marketing was idle, so they had to invent something to keep the marketing guys busy :)
But this is really lame..
Compare that to the campaign Olympus imagined when they issued the E-M5 (oh my god !) ..
The difference is that Olympus had a real breakthrough to announce, unlike Canon who has nothing to offer..
I bet that this "teasing add" will be remembered by any marketing teacher as a perfect example of what shouldn't be done..
There's a 1200D?
Isn't that just a 550D with rehashed plastic?
Sisung: Picture samples!
as would any manufacturer though...
KameraFever: You know who will not sneer away from this camera? Videographers, care least about about what the name badge. If the NX1 delivers the goods in great 4k video, they will be all over this. Did you see the secondary market revolved around the Panasonic GH series? The same thing will happen here.
None of the canon 18mp or 20mp crop sensors are on par with anything from the other manufacturers. They're quite outdated. In fact the 20mp sensor is quite a bit worse :|
Daniel Leitman: Lack of good lenses is still major problem for NX line ... so for example Fuji could produce camera half as good as this and i would buy rather that because i need good lenses for first ! after lens system i choose between cams ;)
come again? They have decent lenses that are quite affordable.
Only fuji really edges them out.
pulsar123: Minimum aperture f/40 (I guess at the longer end)? Wow. Why would they do that? Crop sensor, f/40 aperture means totally blurred photo, probably like from a cheapest cellphone. Even f/22 is way too small for crop sensor: anything smaller than f/16 results in unacceptably soft photos (due to diffraction effects; this has nothing to do with the quality of the optics).
Any superzoom I looked at had some very disappointing shortcomings in the image quality department. (During optical design, one has to sacrifice IQ a lot to get to that huge zoom range.) Let's see if Tamron will surprise us with this new lens. If the IQ is reasonable (comparable to cheap kit lenses, like 18-55mm) across the whole focal length range, this could become The travel lens for crop shooters.
You sound like someone who just reads lens reviews and MTF charts.
People who think the portrait grip is unecessary might want to try shooting with a 1200mm lens first.
mpgxsvcd: They literally put junk in a bigger body thinking that everyone will see it as a full frame camera. They are probably right. Most people will think that this is a pro camera when it is not.
This is a dumb comment.
The camera has a legitimate use - the dual grip is necessary for longer focal lengths if you're shooting in a portrait composition anyway.
Oh unless you're saying that an average consumer doesn't need 1200mm because they didn't buy the right to take photos like that. Like you.
vladimir vanek: Oh yeah, Samsung, of course! For those who want to look like a pro and argue who has more megapixels... I would write the max. zoom with even bigger numbers on the lens and so that it is visible when holding the camera by any of the grips. Oh, and what about putting something like "DUAL GRIP" on the box? See? There are couple of marketing flaws to be updated...
Try shooting a portrait shot on a 1200mm lens with a normal grip in less than ideal shooting conditions.
utomo99: Come on Samsung. Try to make camera to beat Sony Rx 100.With big sensor, fast lens and small body. And people will be happy
Enthusiasts that make up a small proportion of sales will be happy*
