Finally some great innovations from Samsung!
What a great camera!!! Samsung well done. But why it is not built on Android OS? It would be a terrific and most demanding camera if it was built on Android.
Jan Kritzinger: Okay, so the EM-5 won... but the Nex 6 wasn't even an /option/ in the poll?
When NEX-6's bugs will be fixed it can participate to the contest.
Zavodenka: When I see Samsung logo first thing comes to my head is vacuum cleaner.
Because you know nothing in mirrorless photography. Samsung NX system has excellent and cheap lenses compare to Sony NEX.
Eric Hensel: The 5n has the same video button issue, and the bracketing improvement would be nice as well
If Sony wont fix useless exposure Bracketing mode, than most probably I will abandon the system and go to Samsung NX which has excellent lenses and serious photographic cameras.
Paul_B Midlands UK: I am mortified the NEX5N is just trampled over and doesnt get a freshen up. Almost a great camera with some duff firmware that could easily be fixed and should have been ages ago . ESPECIALLY the stupid avoid inadvertently starting movie recording button, better exposure control settings, some tidier menu logic between screens. But now the new NEXs' are out I suppose the 5N will be consigned to the no support bin - a disgrace and probably a reason for me NOT to buy another of their camera products.
For sure Samsung NX are far ahead in terms of Ergonomics, Menu and serious photographic tool like wide Exposure Bracketing control in RAW.
WHEN Bracketing - the ±3EV UPDATE FOR NEX-5N??? WE ALSO NEED IT SO MUCH!!! THE CAMERA IS JUST AN EXPENSIVE TOY WITHOUT THIS USEFUL FEATURE.
Kuturgan: And what about firmware support for customers which won't to buy a new product to get a basic features like +/-1EV Bracketing (on NEX-5n and NEX-7)?
But you can't install apps on NEX-5n.

Am I only one who see the white orbs on the image?
Kuturgan: I'd get Samsung EX2F than this one.
EX2F has a bigger BSI sensor, articulated AMOLED screen, WIFI, and I guess it will cost less than LX7. The last one is only better in tele aperture and video recording 1080p/60i vs 1080p/30i.

That's a true good news for a consumer.
Timmbits: I don't care! Korea has decided to start hunting whales, and I am participating in the international boycott of all Korean products!
And mean time Americans make troubles to other states on the planet...
marike6: It's not a beautiful camera, but has a solid looking grip, a terrific Schneider lens, and a tilt/swivel screen - all great things. But I don't know why vendors have to write f1.4 or f1.8 like the XZ-1 or Full HD on the front of cameras. They aren't places for specs. Take a cue from the X10, still one of the prettiest P&Ss ever. No logos, no writing, nothing on the front. The top panel can have any little "Full HD" or "AVCHD" spec cues designers want, but with the front, the cleaner the better.
Can't totally agree with you. Indeed X10 is a beautiful camera, but EX2f is a beauty too. And f1.4 is not just a spec it is the most important adavantage which distinguishes this camera from other P&S.
Rooru S: Not interested, but hope at least the Drive Dial is customizable to another function. Seems like a combination of S95, NEX-7 and RX100.
It is like you didn't ever seen EX1 before.
rttew: Nokia: keep making failing phones that no one will buy from you.
I'll buy it. You are not everbody.
ProfHankD: This is in several ways a step ahead of Sony NEX, but still misses on a lot of the basics. Samsung's been learning a lot from Sony; let's see if Sony can learn a little from Samsung and start to support the "connected camera" concepts... at least allowing USB tethered control (like they should have all along!).
No, you can check it on youtube, but you should know that it is only a Beta firmware.
peevee1: Given the current price for Panasonic DMC-G3 ($618 with 14-42 lens), this should not cost more than $700 (for WiFi, although an EyeFi card solves this problem for Pana). But I bet Samsung will try to price it significantly more.
First, NX20 DMC-G3 are not at the same league (APS-C vs MFT)Second, NX20's price is MSRP, and it is not on the market yet.Third, NX 20 has a WiFi direct system which is not the same thing as a simple WiFi feature provided by a EyeFi card. With Wifi direct you dont need a WiFi router.
