SHood: The Magic Lantern and GH2 hacks are much different as they had full access to the firmware to improve IQ. The samsung "source code" will allow you to add new features but not affect the IQ.
Samsung has bad IQ so I don't see how this will improve it
JEROME NOLAS: I am guessing full framer with fixed 35mm for $ 4 000.00......
There is one already -$1000 and it's made by Sony....LOL
HowaboutRAW: Ms Mayer:
Is just showing a common attitude of those who fell into extraordinary monies without really working for it, she thinks people work for free, and then are rewarded because of some other factor, like being one of the first 10 employees of Google.
It wasn't a "misstatement". It was a version of a made up reality where no one has to scratch out a living shooting pictures.
Can I have a link?
Why are you so bend out of shape, no pro photographer uses a Samsung Galaxy camera?
More pictures a day are taken with the iphone than any other camera, just look at Flickr stats and the apple commercials say so ;)So you can see why she made this statement...It's clear Flickr is not for the pro photographer
I have taken some pictures of Cape penguins in South Africa and they are just a joy to watch so much personality not to mention all the crazy fornication going on ...LOL
"Award - winning NX line", what a joke...LOLAmateur photographer magazine does not really count for any awards ;)
jj74e: lol people are such brand loyalists without even knowing it. all the hate on samsung for releasing the same 'garbage.' Have you seen the camera industry lately? Have you seen Canon's T3i, T3i, oh, and their recently announced T3i?
What about Panasonic's GF line? After the first generation model, it was all the same cheap plastic to sell.
And it's not like Sony doesn't have its share of "me-too" products. Their NEX cameras have plenty of trivial changes in its lower end models too.
IT'S A PROBLEM WITH THE CAMERA INDUSTRY. yet everyone yells at samsung like some cheap electronics company.
Well Samsung is a cheap electronics company with mediocre at best products.To say they knock off everything is not that far from the truth.But hey you can say that from a lot of their competitors too.The first NX camera looked a lot like a Panasonic G1 these new box ones look like a Sony NEX their TV look like TV's their washing machines fridges and other crap looks just like what every other company makes, the one thing lacking from them is innovation, once they actually make something unique then they will get my respect.
Peiasdf: Samsung treats its cameras like its cellphone. The same crap wrapped in new exterior with more gimmicks. How about slowing down the release schedule and actually provide useful improvements. Also, provide firmware updates.
Good to see HowaboutRAW is still singing that old song, Sony lenses suck and Samsung makes the worlds best lenses, this is just proof if you say things long enough you start believing your own BULL*&%T
JEROME NOLAS: I'd never buy a Sony anything. Who said Leica is an expensive camera? Leica should make phones or at least supply lenses for them...that'd be a hit for sure!
Do i have the phone for you, Motorola i885 Flip phone now that is retro
JaFO: One should note that the Xperia Z still works under water (*)Try doing that to its nearest competitor ... *bzzzt*
(*) provided it isn't sea water or anything else that isn't pure H2O
No, but can a dead phone make calls????
M Jesper: Is this prototype meant to be reality any time soon ? Because if it does i must remember to win the lottery asap.
You don't have to go to Korea to find a 4K TV Sony has a 84" 4K for sale in USA, Canada and EU $25,000 USDI had a look at it and it's amazing.BTW Sharp is the world's largest manufacturer of LCD Display’s and by no means bankrupt.
First Toshiba sensor for Nikon, will have to see how it performs
mediman30: I AM SONY. I AM INNOVATION
I AM SONY. I AM RX100
I AM SONY. I AM RX1
I still love my A77! Merry Christmas to all!
You must be Ashton Kutcher and you shoot bambi with Nikon...LOL
