Samsung Galaxy Camera
I wonder who will be first in line to buy Samsung's Sensor Tech??
Place bets now!!
mediasorcerer: that nx1 is HUGE for a mirrorless, when samsung gets the quality of ther lenses up to fuji/ oly/sony zeiss standards then it may help there sales, but the nx1 was a poorly thought out mirrorless camera as its way too big/ its a dinosaur and way too expensive, the lenses are huge too, defeats the purpose of milc.
no firmware can change these facts/nor marketing spin, thats why its a flop of a camera.
for the money, your way better off with ff canikony or equiv.
If you think the only reason for making a camera mirrorless is the fact you can make it smaller you really should rest your fingers, stop commenting and actually do a bit of research
sandy b: Said the VP of a company that sells mirrorless.
'market reports are predicting that in 2018/19 mirrorless cameras will outsell DSLRs' He never says they will
Gazeomon: DPR has chosen a trashy headline for this interview, which is nothing but speculative garbage.
Agree completely, Its good getting the views from the inside of a company but no where is there a quote from him saying Mirrorless to out sell DSLR 'in three years'. Very misleading Headline
'but since 2008 when mirrorless systems were announced, mirrorless didn’t grow very rapidly. In the last year, however, market reports are predicting that in 2018/19 mirrorless cameras will outsell DSLRs'
The actual quote 'Market reports Predict' is the most important part. Mr Samsung isn't saying that Mirroless will outsell DSLR neither is he saying Samsung Mirrorless will outsell DSLRs in 3 years
Too many people reading the Headline, skipping the article and coming to comment
pew pew: the only thing is dislike about samsung is that they are copycats specially in phones but also in their cameras, the 1.2 firmware with changeable af speed for video is a feature they copied from sony cameras.
Pretty sure I was commenting on the first post by pew pew so keep your knickers on @Boerseuntjie. and I'm actually employed by a different electronics corporation but I own a Fuji X and a NX camera...
but to be fair now reading your comment its pretty dumb also
This may be the dumbest comment I have read on this article so far
Samsung seem to be doing what they did with Mobile and TV's and making a product for every possible consumer
That 300mm Sure is going to push other manufacturers to stup up on their lens designs. I couldnt live without my iFunction is anymore haha
I'm sorry but if the NX1 shoots and focuses like the specs says it should and that 300mm comes into production Wildlife photographers will definitely be keeping tabs on Samsung
onlooker: NX1 looks really nice, but is nearly the size of an FF DSLR and a price not that far off. With relatively little name recognition in the camera world, it might be a hard sell.
That's the thing I think Samsung know this. I have worked in many of the top Retailers here in the UK and you will never see an overflow of Samsung cameras in the stock rooms.
Samsung is slowly gaining ground and recognition in the camera market but I'm sure they know they still have a way to go. The benefit for them is they have the money and production speed to almost build on demand in stead of guessing and having millions of £ $ worth of unsold stock.
I bet Samsung will only build say 10,000 of these if that
Retzius: What are the benefits of a backside illuminated sensor?
In simple terms it the 'wires' moved from the front of the sensor to the back, allowing more light to hit the sensor in effect increasing low light capabilities.
The technology has revolutionized the compact camera market increasing the quality hugely so here's to hoping for the same
lensberg: Is it true that there's no expandable storage for either phone...???!! No memory card ---------> No sale...!!
You can always use iCloud, i hear its very secure...
AndreSJ: Urm.... I think Olympus have missed the point of a 180* articulating screen??
A screen the rotates up not only allows me to takes selfies but it would also allow me to place the camera on on a surface or a tripod. This saves me asking someone to take a picture of me when I'm on holiday or guessing family group .
A screen that rotates down... allows me to take selfies.... great
I know the screen flips 90* up but that means you still have to take the picture, if the screen could flip 180* up (selfie position) you could place the camera on the tripod and set th timer and see what you are taking whilst in front of the camera
Urm.... I think Olympus have missed the point of a 180* articulating screen??
can anyone tell me where you can get that light tube?? I'v always wanted a Cheap solution for a ring flash/ continuous light
AndreSJ: RX100 III
this 1" battle is getting interesting
But which is right for you??
Yes the GM1 is a fine camera, the only downside is you're restricted to 2 lenses atm to keep it compact and you will NEVER get a decent/fast zoom for it. and if you want a fixed lens you will be buying the GM1 at $600 and then you have to get the lens on top of that $$$.
I'v mentioned it before but i don't get who the GM1 is aimed at??
and I'm happy Pana has gone with the 1". If they went with 4/3 they would be fighting with the X100 with size and sorry but the X100 will keep its crown for a while
Woops I assumed they were as i keep reading about them, Guess my decision has been made easier.
Lets say the High end 'real' compact camera market
oh and i don't look at the Nikon 1 series as competitors to the RX100 and NX Mini as they are not as compact and are really aimed at CSC buyers
As much as i like the Samsung note its not a graphics Tablet and as much as i hate the IPad its...... not a graphics tablet.
nice tool for having a tinker though
