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
tabloid: I like a bigger camera.NX1 for me is the right size.
The size doesn't matter to me so show me an SLR that shoots 15fps, has hybrid AF, a 28mp sensor, fully weather sealed, has good WIFI implementation and 4K video and I will buy it.
Mirriless isn't the future because of size it is the future because of the shooting capabilities
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
NS1 4k promo video - enough said.
HAHAH this is getting better and better
brownie314: Ouch - $2800 for kit! Looks like a very good system - but for the $? It had better focus really well! But if it does - maybe it is worth that much.
Yeh i would have liked to have seen it at $1299-1399 body only but hey ho i never buy on release price anyway.
you cant judge the kit price though, when ever do you see a Canon release a kit with an L lens or Sony with a Ziess?? not to mention with a V grip.
tinternaut: The best APS-C sensors have been more or less the same 16 and 24mp Sony sensors, for some time now. Sensor tech has hit a (a perfectly pleasant) wall. Has Samsung just demolished that wall?
Here's a brick
Sisung: Picture samples!
People follow the link, yes it seems to all be under controlled conditions but there is some serious sharpness there
EthanP99: $2799 for a kit...
You can buy the Sony A77 II kit for $1000 less
Nice pricing, Samsung
Is the Kit with a 16-50mm f/2-2.8??
and was it a release price bundle??
Kit includingCamera- $1500Lens- $1300Battery grip- $200Battery- $50Charger $20
So it saves you some money, the real bundles will obviously come a couple months down the line
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??
