  • Personally I'd try to buy lenses with a view to having something that will always be useful, so don't overlap the kit lenses. Even though I can sell lenses on ebay if I have to, I don't like ...
  • That's exactly what I was thinking! I had to google it and found out there is a different Wells " Wells-next-the-sea " Anyway - some great pictures Simon!
  • Did it look like this? I had a few problems last year with my NX20 where it started doing this. Also, the photos would occasionally come out black, except for the bottom or top strip.  After ...
  • Thanks! I've been here for several months - I've already had to buy a new suitcase to fit everything in when I leave! (There's a photography market in Shanghai that's pretty good too, I think it's ...
  • Replied in Build quality
    Sorry - missed this earlier. To be honest, I can't really tell the difference, if they didn't come off the same production line, they are probably produced to the same specifications. There are ...
  • 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 ...
