No RAW capture for $500? Sony go home you are drunk.
Boerseuntjie: Wow that's a bold price for a crappy camera
Well you can get the Lunar one for the on earth price by getting the Sony version...LOL What far off "Galaxy" would buy this Samsung?
Arn: I'm an NX user myself (along with Canon and Sony gear) and if this is any indication of the future of Samsung's pricing for the NX system... well, I'm afraid that the whole system will lose it's appeal. The NX gear so far - camera bodies like the NX20 and NX300 and just about all of the NX lenses are reasonably priced and very high quality.
Now /this/ product is just the opposite - an overpriced niche product. Like previously mentioned - had it been priced around $800-900, it would have made more sense and wouldn't have been DOA.
$800-900 still expensive, how about $600-700, it's a toy
Wow that's a bold price for a crappy camera
Not 1080 only 720, small CCD? what's the point of this? someone please tell Ricoh that compact cameras are a dying breed and this one is already dead before it was born.
jimstar70: I don't uderstand one thing. Sony has all pieces of technology to combine into a superior camera. But I haven't seen any camera in their lineup I would like to buy since previous decade. Every new model misses something that was good and should not be abandoned. I hardly believe it's Japan quality. I keep my alpha 700 and alpha 900 but won't replace it with new models...
StevenE: When I studied the trumpet my teacher told me "the quickest way to become satisfied with your performance is to lower your standards." The same applies to photography.
I'll keep my 5DIII; the compacts and mirror-less (I've tried a couple) are just not ready yet. I'll carry an EOS-M with 22mm f/2 when photography is secondary and I want something reasonable with me.
Funny your gear list has 5DII and no mention of EOS-M, so are you just making up stuff?
Jesper Frickmann: YES! This is what I have been waiting for. I must say that Gustav's sample shots with the ZEISS look really good! And I like the size of that lens too. But I also like the longer focal length and the price of the G... The reviews will decide which one I get for my NEX 6!
beavertown: Nikon is dying. They don't even have their own sensor.
Canon 70D kills the Nikon equivalent by thousand miles.
@ Eyeglass10101 Beavertown is not completely wrong, Nikon uses Sony and recently Toshiba sensors in their cameras and in the past Aptina made sensors for Nikon, so you are wrong by saying they make their own sensors, but I see nothing wrong with a company using the best sensors out there so all the power to Nikon, all Canon does is recycle their old sensors, this is their first new sensor in a long time
steelhead3: I have to say nice snaps; can we challenge the camera a bit; this is a very expensive camera. It probably is best camera for IQ of all and I want to see pitfalls, but an acknowledgment of its quality.is important to buyers.
I WILL THANKS
How good does a Leica M9 Auto focus? this is the kind of camera market this camera was made for and it does a good job I think.Many of my friend that use Leica got this camera and they love it.
_vlad: Weird JPG colors, poor per-pixel sharpness, lots of LOCA W/O, frequently missed focus and unbelievable noise - maybe I am blind
Open your eyes
tecnoworld: Why not the same tests and articles for the samsung nx300, released about 5 months ago, with hybrid af? Af wise, it just placed ahed of nikon d7100 and pentax k5-ii on a german magazine, that cared to test it.
Samsung is not that good, get over it
All these would have looked much better with Instagram filters...LOLI think they are interesting but don't screw with what is already considered an ICON, just my opinion not saying the work that went into these were dump just not necessary,It's like repainting the Mona Lisa in crayon, just saying.I will say this, I think they were colorized excellent.
Are you planning to use this camera in a sporting event, well that's not what it's made for, use the best tool for the job it was designed for and there is not one camera out there that is perfect and can do everything if you think this camera should achieve that then keep on dreaming
white shadow: A reasonably good selection of shots in a variety of situation. Keep it up for other camera reviews like the coming 70D.
A good pocketable camera for travel but the price is rather expensive.
I am using a similar setup for travel; using a Zeiss ZE 35mm f/2.0 on the Canon 5D MkII. Seems to get better results.
Maybe DPR should do a comparison, if not with the 5D MkII then with the 5D MkIII with a Zeiss ZE 35mm f2.0 lens. If the result is on par or better then this IS the camera to go for if one want to travel light.
@ HowaboutRAW Interesting now you are saying Sony does not suck
You said it, you are blind
Depending on price this would be a game changer for the Chicago Tribune Iphone photographers ;)
Can't wait for the Samsung cardboard camera and Galaxy phone...LOLthis is just dumb, it's still a plastic printer inside does Samsung think people are stupid...Oooo wait yes they do people keep on buying their cheap crap so we all must be
