On Samsung NX1 Review preview (1224 comments in total)

PerL: A few thoughts on battery life and action/sports shooting. Battery life rated 500 images - that is 33 seconds of shooting bursts at 15 fps. How does the battery cope with 90 minutes EVF-on? (The length of a 2x45 min soccer game). How is it affected by cold temperatures?

I can only get you one sample that is somewhat close to your numbers. I did use the NX1 with the 85mm (no OiS) at indoor sports (2*25min) with Burst rate varying between normal and high and I did shoot 650+ images with Battery at 50% remaining capacity. I used Active AF hence the NX1 did always tried to aquire some focus and the amount of battery juice sucked here was higher than normal AF-C

Mario Giannini: I currently use a Nikon D7100, and as such am invested in Nikon lenses, flash units, and wireless triggers. I am glad to see the Samsung beat the D7100 in it's review, even if it only beat it slightly in RAW quality, which is my primary concern. It's not enough for me to go and dump my camera, but it does mean that others have some great options, and when my time comes to upgrade, so will I. I do hope that Sigma, Tokina, and other makes roll out some impressive lenses to support the Samsung, and that wireless TTL triggers become available.

Good work Samsung!

The NX30 and NX1 have a wireless build-in flash that can trigger three different thrid party flashes from Metz as well as the SEF580 from Samsung. The later can act as external Wireless TTL master as well on the NX500...not much missing

In reply to:

ThePhilips: "The only exception to the excellent ergonomics are the four buttons on top of the dial that control ISO, WB, AF, and metering, which feel a bit Nikon-esque."

The condescension is truly Canon-esque.

I personally agree with it as I would have preferred to leave the ISO/AF/Metering on the rear four way controller and put custom buttons on that top plate instead.

Using an NX30 I very often tried to change the ISO value on NX1 as I used to do and failed completely....

G1Houston: How does its auto-ISO work? Auto-ISO enabled in M-mode? Can you still control Exp Comp in M-mode with auto-ISO?

yes, you can use EV compensation on M AutoISO

the funny thing with Low Light AF on the NX1 is that using the NX30 with the same lens (e.g. the 1650S) the NX30 is clearly better in regards of focus accurracy and speed. When I did compare the two I was totally surprise about the outcome and I believe that Samsung should be able to adjust that by a firmware release.

when Nikon states that the 18Mpix Sensor on the J4 did not perform, do we then get a V4 soon ?

Else: a -long awaited- move to the right direction

On Photokina 2014 Video: The Samsung NX1 article (98 comments in total)
In reply to:

Just a Photographer: Samsung might have had the biggest stand at Photokina, it was also the most empty stand. Next to the fact that the NX1 didn't focus when I tried it. Might be due to the fact that the touch screen can't be turned off, I don't know. It didn't work for me at least.

Samsung seems to be a gadget company, not a camera company. Its just a thing they do too.

well, the biggest stand gets you the option to try out all possible combinations. I wanted to try out things at the Fuji stand (X100T amd the T1 with the new tele lenses) and it took me more time to even get one of the few samples on display not speaking about the desired cmbination.

I took more time waiting at Fuji and Pana then trying out various NX1 combinations

verybiglebowski: This looks like my next camera body. I am curious to see how their sensor will stand against Sony 24 mpx though, because otherwise I like Samsung ergonomics much better than Sony. I just hope they will keep uncompressed RAW option, unlike Sony.

the specs state 14bit depth on single shot and low rate burst and 12bit on high rate burst

In reply to:

tjobbe: Imaging resource mentions the drop of the sensor cleaning on the new one.

As well compared to the A6000 and Nex5 the screen flips up only as on the A5000 so with dropping the accessory port and the top dial this is really more a step-up of the A5000 than a Nex5 replacement despite the sensor upgarde

Does the tiny flash at least allows to trigger any other Sony flash wirelessly ?

well dropping the sensor cleaning on a CSC is indicating that they do not believe that lenses are swapped very often ,-)

marc petzold: If only the prime would be f1.8 instead of 3.5....for 300 bucks the nx-m would
be great together with the zoom & the prime lens..perhaps when the successor comes out in 2015...

the 17mm prime IS actually f1,8

123Mike: It costs more and it is not nearly as good as the Sony A6000, which currently is an unbeatable camera ! ! !

well I had LR4 so it was a nice upgrade and I was able to sell my LR4 licence for a few €....still 759,- is more expensive than 729,- (at least that is how it is seen here purely mathematically)

Of course you have to agee with 123Mike :-)

facts:

current price NX30 with Kit 729,-€
current price A6000 with kit 759,-€

Price for the LR5 licence 85,-€

Bottom line: 100,-€ difference

In reply to:

eozdural: I bought a Samsung NX100 a few years ago and it came with a kit zoom. I want to upgrade to a better body, but if I do buy a body that I want, I have to buy it with another kit zoom. I mean they are all bundled with a kit zoom. There is only one body sold without a kit zoom. This is unique in all exchangeable lens cameras, all brands offer options of buying body only, except Samsung.

Maybe someone can find an example where there is one or two bodies sold separately, or can find a body being sold on ebay, but that isn't interesting for me. If I can't choose the exact new body that I want, without a kit zoom, then I think there is a problem.

was meant to go here

in the UK the Article number is EV-NX30ZZBZBGB

you can buy a body only NX easily...

I did buy one (and the dealer bundled it himself with the new PZ Zoom, which is possible here with the new 16-50 S as well)

On Samsung NX30 Review preview (431 comments in total)

well, I am not sure if I shall take that review seriously

no in camera conversion being on the CONS list for all NX since a while but any NX I am using so far does do that....just a copy and paste error ?

YOU can convert RAW in camera by pressing the play button, view the image and adopt via color pallet all RAW params incl an auto conversion

oh... ny NX30 (as the NX20 before) has three dials, one on top, one at the back, one the one on the NX lens....so you can easily configure all you need

On Nikon launches S2 1-System mirrorless camera article (73 comments in total)

ok, so the S2 is the S1 with the J3 Sensor and showing a lens kombination with the new 10-30 that is not offered at all but the unstabalized 11-27.5 already shipped with with S1.

What I do not get is the fact that they dare to release a pure entry level consumer camera with an "optionál" Wifi adapter

Who will buy this ???????

In reply to:

fermatgom: MicroSD storage???

sure, and it comes with a cheap smartphone battery that is larger and priced at a fraction of a normal camera battery pack and guess what... you can buy that spare battery including a charger for less than a fraction of the cost of an original e.g Sony NEX battery

Well.. its cheap Smartphone technology, so what do you expect

Donald B: excellent image quality, shame it hasn't got a evf or even an add-on one.

yes it does ring, but does the LF1 feature any tiltable Screen ?

well, that is what you call trade off ... wanna have both, get a bigger camera as the mechanics for the screen hinge will not allow you to get compact
