Does it work with NX200?

So new Canon S100 seems to underperform.
I compared S100, LX5, S95, with TL500(EX1), and "old" Samsung seems to provide better results in RAW and jpeg than others.

Don't lie, we are not blind.

Now with a new shot test, NX200's images looks even more sharper and crisp.

photo nuts: Looks good, similar to Sony NEX 5N and Panasonic G3. Samsung seems to implement mandatory in-camera RAW NR at ISO 6400, images are significantly softer than those at lower ISO levels.

They are not softer, just out of focus.

It's a joke?

What is the price of 50 F1.8?

I don't see any problem with that.
Did you see color rendition on the palette?

Where NX200 is worse then NEX5n?
You must joking.

Jarda_Houdek: Great, now Samsung is up to something. Pair this with good Pentax or Nikon jpeg engine and this is THE next generation sensor for DSLRs. Who needs Sony now?

Nikon and Pentax sucks in the market of EVIL cameras.
So if what we see is true then Samsung will be a leader in this market very soon.

kwojdyna: Great sensor what you can see in RAW mode. TERRIBLE processing in JPEG mode (look higher ISOs at coins or cotton balls...)

This great sensor had been put in a camera that is a major step back compared to NX100.

It's maybe phisically better made, but lacks "AE lock" and direct "Whie Balance" buttons present in NX100 (needless to say how USEFUL they WERE). Now we can see that also picture processing is MUCH WORSE than in it's predecessor.

NX100 was something - VERY ergonomic (except of the flash which was a bad mistake) with much better sensor than any m43, what gave great RAWs, and acceptable JPEGs.

NX200 has only some minor advantages compared to it when we talk about a chance of getting great everyday pictures (what it is designed for, I guess) -flash, 20MP RAWs and nice feel in hands - and GREAT DISADVANTAGES.

Just think - in everyday photography - you do not shot RAWs. You need good JPEGs and "WB" + "AE lock" funcs quickly accessible. This camera DOES NOT offer any of these!

chlamchowder: Agreed - image quality is very nice. It seems less noisy than the a77 (but the translucent mirror probably contributes to that).

Is it just me, or do the raws at really high ISOs (6400, 12800) look noise reduced?

I have no ISO obsession. For the most important is the colors. And what I see is really good.

Oh, please stop. If you shoot just jpeg than why you stick with EVIL cameras? Take a P&S.

As for me, I never use ISO6400. I rarely go up to 1600.

Kuturgan: It seems like there is a focus problem with NX200 shot. The Queen is out of focus.

The palette of colors on the right side is just WONDERFUL!!! Even better than EP-3.
Just look at RAW image, NX200 outperforms all other cameras including NEX, EP-3!!!

In reply to:

CyberGene: Something's very wrong with the sharpness of the playing card in the middle of the frame (for example the lower queen's head). It was either misfocused or the lens is soft. Strangely, there's no problem with the sharpness in any other part of the picture... Was that card vibrating or something? :)

This lens 60mm can't be soft. Because the test shot is 3D, I guess is is a focus issue! On the image with NX200 the Queen is surely out of focus.

RLPhotoAndImaging: This is a new camera? Horrible!

It can be explained by the test mistake.
I'm sure Dpreview will make a new fair test asap.

As I see there are a lot of issues and mistakes with NX200 test. We don't know if they were intentional or accidental though.
It's a shame and ridiculous that, considered as a serious digital camera review, Dpreview produces such a mistakes (only!) with Samsung cameras (NX10 and NX200).
Dpreview must make a new and fair test with NX200, and delete erroneous one, and make an official statement about that mistake.

I'm sure that Dpreview did some mistake when shot with NX200. On the other forums NX200 looks really better (actually more than one stop for ISO) and sharper than NX100. At low ISO (till 1600) NX200 looks even sharper than NEX-5n (based on raw files).
I hope Dpreview will make over NX200 test and will as well show images from RAW files.
For me RAW image is the best indicator of camera performance, cause I almost always shoot RAW.
