  • yeah, it's a big negative for me too. unfortunate, because this looks like a great replacement for my nikon v1. Oh well, the GM5 also looks interesting, and is probably more flexible in the long run.

  • Sorry, I'm probably missing this, but can someone tell me if the zoom is mechanical or "drive by wire" electronically controlled? I can't see this mentioned anywhere.

    -Ignore me, i see the zoom...

  • It doesn't become obsolete, it just that there is another camera better that this one. As other posters state above, the camera keeps on taking photos to exactly the same quality as before ...
  • Yeah, it's not a big thing, I just find it a little annoying because I've kept the NX20, so I swap between the two and find myself scrolling up and down the NX30 settings menu trying to remember ...
  • Wow, maybe I need to reconsider getting the NX1... :-) Tizen is what powers the NX30, right? So we can expect the menus etc to be roughly the same? (IMO the NX30 menus are a step backwards from the ...
  • Interesting that there is only one ring and an ifunction button - does this mean the focus is not mechanically coupled but "drive by wire" or whatever you call it? Excuse my ignorance, but is this ...
  • Replied in NX1 vs NX30
    I agree with you, I won't be upgrading my NX30 to an NX1 unless an amazing deal comes along (e.g. something heavy discounting with the 16-50). But I'm happy to see the NX1 as it means (1) more ...
  • Yeah, Korea would make sense (although even when I was in Seoul looking around tourist sites I saw significantly more MFT cameras than Samsungs...) but the rest of the world? I also don't trust...

  • "Samsung is certainly an ambitious company, and its efforts have paid off with a global mirrorless market share that only falls behind Sony. "

    I'd be very interested to see the source for this.......

  • Some nice pictures! By chance I was in Tainan last week - I really liked the place. (Will post some pics too when I get a chance to review them.)
  • I'm really happy about this lens - I mean, the NX1 sounds awesome and all that, but I shan't be getting one myself, I have no problems with the NX30, don't take video or need a weather sealed ...
  • Your're right, I didn't specify that very well. I meant a mirrorless digital medium format single piece camera. I'm not sure that's the correct term - I mean a single component containing the ...
  • I don't disagree with anything you said, but personally I'd like to see a mirrorless medium format camera. It seems to make as much, if not more, sense than mirrorless full frame - there's no need ...
  • Some people seem to care more about taking a photograph than about the feelings of the person being photographed. Some, vice versa. This is basically what it boils down to. There seem to be a small ...
  • Hmmm, that's a good point, I've never tried to rent lenses before, so didn't think of this...
  • Since buying the NX10, I always keep an eye out for Samsung cameras. Until the NX300 came out, I think I saw about 3, in total, across multiple countries and locations. I'm fairly sure I saw more ...
  • 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 ...
