  • Yes, that's a good point, I meant to mention it. I actually ordered the bag + charger + battery combo from b&h even though I don't much care about the bag, but for somewhat complicated reasons I ...
  • That was my take on it. I reckon an NX1 will need to be substantially better than the NXxx line to allow differentiation, which means a substantially higher price. The rumoured NX400 with EVF is ...
  • Thanks to you and Usee!
  • Nice, I think I prefer the first and third in B&W, but the second I like both. What castle is that? I feel I should recognise it.
  • Another nice set, you're definitely building up a great collection of sunrises! Second is my favorite for the light and reflections, although my first impression was that the horizon was not ...
  • Created discussions New NX30 - first impressions
    So I decided to treat myself to the NX30, upgrading from the NX20. So far, delighted with the new camera - not a massive improvement, but a number of nice new features makes it great to use. (1) The ...
  • Hmmm, I think I get it now... I'm going to mark targut's post as "the answer" but thanks everyone for the info!
  • Thanks for the info guys, however I'm still confused. :D Looking at Vatazhka's links, the second link shows the supported lenses. This includes the 12-24 and 18-200, however neither of these have ...
  • After 3 years of using Adobe Lightroom, I've decided to work out what all the features actually do.... So, I've noticed that some Samsung lenses have available profiles that can be applied (the ...
  • True. I actually considered at one point selling everything I have and buying a Canon 6D and a 17-40 f4, and accepting the weight gain. I.e. compromising on flexibility but gaining performance for ...
  • This is an interesting point. As one of those people who constantly claim to try to cut weight, I'm wondering whether what you say is true. I think the issue is though that none of the mirrorless ...
  • Good for you. ;-) I suspect everyone posting on this thread, myself included, is *capable* of carrying, say, a full frame setup with f2.8 zooms. Whether or not we *want* to, is another question. ...
  • Yes, you're right. For someone who is only interested in long, fast zooms, the saving in weight is marginal. I read your initial post as asking why anyone would switch to mirrorless because of ...
  • OK, I'll bite. I use a Samsung NX kit, the actual lenses I use on this are: 3 primes: 16mm, 30mm, 60mm, and wide angle zoom. Let's look at replicating that setup with Canon. (Weights and list ...
  • I've posted before how much I like the 12-24mm as a general walkaround lens from when I'm on holiday. I take a lot of shots at 12mm, but also the 24mm end gets a lot of use too. Checking stats in ...
  • B&H also have money off NX lenses at the moment, in case anyone is interested. Prices seem similar to Amazon. I was tempted by the 60mm at USD 449, but by the time I factor in the difficulties of ...
  • The last one with the buildings and the pier is the strongest for me (and I prefer it to the later one you've posted that does not show the pier). The others are OK, but I don't think the colours ...
  • Ah, I see! That's why I never understand film-style filters - I find it hard to tell if the effect is deliberate or accidental :-) But my tastes in PP aside you've got some cool pictures here and ...
  • I think these are pretty cool, actually, but why are you shooting at such high ISOs? I thought at first you'd applied an "instragram" style filter, but I think it's just the high ISO that is ...
  • I've had the NX20 about 2 years, taken almost 30,000 photos with it. I've not mistreated it, but I've not taken special care of it either - I've probably dropped it a couple of times from waist ...
