  • I look at the Leica forum from time to time, one thing I like about it is that the majority of the threads are posting pictures. I can't say that I find the pictures so much better than those ...
  • I have a 58mm hoya filter for my 12-24, one of these: http://www.hoyafilter.com/hoya/products/pro1digitalfilterseries/pro1dcircularpl/ I can't see any signs of vignetting at 12mm. I bought it for ...
  • As a fellow NX30 owner I agree... but it's the number and scope of firmware updates for the NX1 that is unusual, not the abandonment of previous cameras. Pretty much every manufacturer (except...

  • Nice pictures, especially the waterfalls! Did you climb the hills near pingxi? I was there last year, and I have some photos I will one day get around to processing ... amazing scenery in that area!
  • This sounds really great, I have a nx30 and although I'm travelling right now, I will test it as soon as I'm able! You should message RawJaw on this forum as he has strong views on the Nx mobile ...
  • I've recently tried to reorganise how I post photos and started putting a border with my name / website on photos I post. I think it achieves the positive brand aspects of a watermark without ...
  • I agree, but it's better than nothing. To me, I'd rather have the option, even if it costs a bit in sharpness. After all, plenty of people shoot with lenses that aren't exactly top quality now and ...
  • So what does that mean for a Samsung TC in your opinion? Could Samsung produce a 1.4 or 2.0 TC? I'm one of the people who would be very interested in using one with the 50-150, despite the IQ ...
  • Maybe try testing in low light, I have an NX30 and a GM5, in good light I don't really notice the difference ... (The white balance is quite different, actually, I'd be interested to know which ...
  • Exactly what I was thinking - I have the kingston mobilelite which i guess is the same thing with a different name. About 30 dollars plus the cost of an off the shelf external hard drive. Also, I...

  • Replied in Really?
    I agree 100% on the teleconverter. I will buy the 50-150 sooner or later (probably when I can actually handle it in a  shop), and I would buy either a 1.4 or a 2.0 tc. I would never buy a 300mm ...
  • I'll add my voice to those above - there is absolutely no way you can rely on fast enough internet to upload that many photos. I'm OK with accepting that you need /want to shoot that many (I ...
  • I agree, no chance of it appearing this year, based on the NX10, 20, 30 release cycles. I'm waiting myself, but resigned to at least another year's wait.
  • Agree, this would be my number 1 choice too. I think it's a logical choice for an "S" prime (doesn't directly replace any existing primes, common focal length), so fingers crossed!
  • I think for travel, and as this is your first camera, you're better off not getting a prime lens unless a) you're sure you like that focal length, and b) you don't mind changing lenses. My original ...
  • I agree too, as long as you don't mind changing lenses. I think the general consensus is that the 50-200 beats the 18-200 in terms of IQ, although it loses on convenience and not having silent ...
  • I didn't realise you could convert in playback... I shoot raw normally, but raw +JPG if I think I'm going to want to transfer photos. But I'm not sure it's quite what the OP is asking for - ...
  • I was waiting for you to mention Israel, but I didn't want to pre-empt it Yes, I've never been there, but Israel is the only example I've ever heard given (by anyone) of an efficient security ...
  • It's a valid generalization because they are *all* like that. Please name me an airport where you feel that security rules are consistently drawn up and fairly and logically implemented in a ...
  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    Also, you can downlod the firmware yourself and install it from he SD card"the old fashioned way", using this site https://samsungnx.herokuapp.com/ (or others)
