jennyrae: lens is big and heavy for m4/3. very expensive. also need very big expensive filter. panasonic need to make compact lens for compact m4/3 cameras. not this. cannot pocket camera with this lens. need light pancake. right @jorge?
Yes, combine this new lens with the GH3 and you get a real compact combination....
@jorge: do you now start a thread about the fact that m4/3 is way to large and to heavy and that the argument that you can get pancakes applied to m4/3 as well as to other mounts ?
I guess what Pana correctly shows here is that a real superior optics can hardly be small and light with fast aperture at same time so I believe that this one is still a reasonable extension to the m4/3 lens set.
Kuturgan: Olympus lies! First EVIL camera with max shutter speed of 8000th/sec is Samsung NX20.
the notes are true and no lie ("a mechanical shutter that can achieve a speed of 1/8000th of a second ") as the NX20 is using an electronical shutter...
They avoided stating a false claim
tecnoworld: Also samsung nx lenses have been tested by dxo. No news for them? :-)
news will have the usual delays ;-)
@Lars: did you ever use the FN mode on the UI as that normally gets you the complete setting that you have on any NX as today to change all params like AF, Drive mode, flash etc via the top plate menue push/rotate dial.
The same concept btw as on the NX2000 that as well shares the similar camera UI although Tizen based.
My understanding so far is different to your preview that the FN parameter (not the lens iFN) are on the EVF and allow to manipulate all DRIM setting.
The Android bits should not appear on the EVF but the LCD only while all CameraOS elements shall come up on the EVF.
utomo99: I hope Samsung start considering to opensource the android and using it to other cameras too. and hopefully many people will contribute and make it better
no, that is for their open source TIZEN OS cameras ;) but code yet for Android
Kuturgan: NO, Samsung, NO!!!!IT is not the right way for development! Do like Sony! Give us a range-finder with EVF!This ugly galaxy camera is a total disaster! Ergonomics is a total sh*t. And it is too big for mirrorless system.
the GN120 is a bit smaller then a small sensor GH3
dpLarry: Unless you can make phone calls with it... whats the point?
this is btw the first camera I can work while taking images by getting all my business related emails on my camera so that I do not need to be at the office but have the pleasure to answer. I guess you can use a BT Headset and while taking phone calls manage the camera via microphone and voice commands...
what about a full raw converter with the ability to send the re-touched JPEG images with Nik tools without ever requiring a PC ?
jj74e: lol people are such brand loyalists without even knowing it. all the hate on samsung for releasing the same 'garbage.' Have you seen the camera industry lately? Have you seen Canon's T3i, T3i, oh, and their recently announced T3i?
What about Panasonic's GF line? After the first generation model, it was all the same cheap plastic to sell.
And it's not like Sony doesn't have its share of "me-too" products. Their NEX cameras have plenty of trivial changes in its lower end models too.
IT'S A PROBLEM WITH THE CAMERA INDUSTRY. yet everyone yells at samsung like some cheap electronics company.
the difference is: the GF6 needed an upgrade......
Cychen: The design reminds me of a Sony NEX
the design of the NX2000 is exactly the same as the one for the NX1000 (which is not a Sony...) which got replaced by the NX1100 which gets replaced by the NX2000 so third generation with same design at Samsung ....
Greynerd: The 20-50 lens is looking rather long in the tooth. It was an early attempt to create a compact aps-c lens but the zoom range is truncated and there is no stabilisation. It does look bit to me a bit of the latest thing in cameras but with an ancient lens bolted on to it. The 20-50 is a very competent lens but I would have thought Samsung could have manged to produce a folding 18-55 or even wider by now or at least a 20-50 with stabilisation.
you will get two versions (at least in parts of europe) as NX2020 and NX2030 with NX2020 featuring the 20-50mm and the NX2030 featuring the OiS 18-55 for a surplus of 50€
there is a video review on german chip.de already
zamorac: Is it a typo in specifications or this camera accepts only MICRO SD cards? Micro SD is way to small and fiddly for regular use.
Yes, its micro SD only but you can get UHS-1 cards with 45mbit/s r/w today from various vendors for a similar price tag as any SD card so I see no issue here on prices.
Price tag for 32GB is around 20€ for Transcend and Samsung UHS-1
As my Tab as well runs MicroSD I am already having two 1& and 32 UHS from Sandisk and Transcend that perform well in the Nikon 1 and the normal NX via adapter.
tkbslc: 45mm seems like an odd choice for APS-C. Did they just try and copy m4/3?
Olympus f1,8/45mm announcement on 19th SeptSamsung f1,8/45mm announcement on 17th Sept
Samsung earlier, hence they did pre-copy
Thumbs up for that smart one
mikmach: Interesting choice of words 'first camera to *openly* use Android'. So, which cameras use green robot in hidden way?
when you log into the WiFI Access Point of a Samsung camera, it shows "traces of Android" in it
Boerseuntjie: I can not wait for all the Samsung fan boys to go.... see Fuji just ripped off Samsung now you know how it feel when your competitor takes your ideas looser...LOL
yeah, again well informed...
but you are aware that no Samsung camera can upload any file to any smartphone ?
The smartphone downloads from the Camera or the camera directly uploads to the internet without storing on the smartphone (BTW: why do you want to store an image first on the smartphone that if you want to share it on the internet ????)
Marcelobtp: WOOOW samsung again copying sony!
yes, they already started copying from Sony with the MV800 before and they even copy the WiFi from Sony prior to Sony even knowing they invented it...great comment and so right !
@Lars: please change that phrase here as it is incorrect "But it does mean that there's no longer any way to lock the exposure in auto modes." as the Firmware version you used already allowed you to use the custom button to place the ALE/AFE on
Sosua: Damn, pretty sweet pocket camera.
Now if this was a CSC things would be rocking - hopefully Sigma sell the SD1 sensor to Sony or something and they can slap it in an NEX7
the 46MP has the same size being CROP 1,5
what is next ? Suing the camera maker or Adobe for supporting the copyright breaches ?
next generation camera will all get a warning messages before the image is stored that will ask you if you are sure to store it and the next stage is a check against an online library to verify if a selected object is already subject for copyright protection so that you can't shoot the image at all (or alternatively the camera will offer you to buy it and pay online royalties)
