I enjoyed using the first NX camera (NX-10). The IQ for its time was decent, the ergonomics was outstanding, and the user interface (menu system/buttons/controls) was the most user-friendly of all digital cameras I have ever used. Unfortunately, each subsequent models got worse... and now we have NX Galaxy. Samsung is going the wrong way.
This is the PERFECT first digital camera for a photographer who has been in coma for the last 25 years. He will have no problem whatsoever adapting to digital photography.
Wow, he is going to save Sony!
The boss doesn't understand the QX, and he tells his boss "You are not the target user" - I love this guy.
DDWD10: I'm a little concerned about the 1/500s mechanical shutter limit. Using the electronic shutter at higher speeds, would one expect CMOS rolling shutter artifacts or not?
According to the Japanese site http://dc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/20131017_619861.html , it says "because of the nature of electronic shutter, rolling distortion can happen depending on the situation".So, it sounds like the same issue as GX7.
So, next time when my picture come out blurry I can say "I was simulating AA filter".
Seriously, doesn't the effectiveness of this AA filter simulator depend on which axis you apply the vibration? Which axis does Pentax vibrate, or is it "random"?
I'd add hand wipes (individually packaged wet ones are nice) to the list - you don't want to touch your camera with BBQ sauce smothered hands.
Reduce the cost of printers? I don't think the cost of printers need to be reduced - the cost of toners should. I bought a color laser printer for less than $99 a while back. When I bought the replacement toner cartridges (4 colors) it cost more than $250. I seriously thought about buying another printer, instead of just toners. Granted, the toners that come with the printer is not "full", but hey, a new printer with "half full" toners for $99 vs. just the toners for $250. You do the math.
How I grew out of my GAS was by learning to "see the big picture." Don't look at individual components like resolution, sharpness, dynamic range, color, etc,; but look at the picture in whole. If the whole is good, then the resolution/etc is secondary.
If you live by drive-by shooting, you will die of drive-by shooting (of different kind).
I think it is too small. I love miniaturization, but only if it becomes pocketable. If it is pocketably small I am willing to trade off ergonomics. Otherwise, it is both unergonomic and unpocketable.
$600 sounds very reasonable.
So... where is iPhone-5?
increments: What I don't get with the v1 is if it's not supposed to be an enthusiast's camera, why the viewfinder, hot-shoe, focus mode button, etc.?
If it is supposed to be an enthusiast's camera, why no command dial for exposure settings?
They could even have put an ipod style centre control wheel if a regular dial is somehow intimidating to the uber-nervous.
PINK body with PINK lens - that's a serious enthusiast stuff.
digby dart: Anyone looking for a $900 pink camera to hang around the neck at weddings - this is it! :)
Buy the PINK one, it will be a collector's item one day.
Timing-wise, wait until the stores start dumping the PINK model because nobody wants them. Then Nikon will discontinue the PINK model, and 5 years later everybody will start collecting the PINK one.
