  • I'm still using my V1's for my mag and gallery work. If I wanted super clean 1600/3200 asa I would probably look to augment it for that sort of work. but I have shot gigs with the V1's at 1600 ...
  • One thing I'm noticing about the Samsungs is the nice way they deal with skin tones.....
  • Hope so; because 35mm equivalent is my most used lens..... I use it for 95% of my work...  :-)
  • Was there any timeframe given on the 24mm? Cheers :-)
  • I've printed 12x18" from a 400asa file from the V1 for exhibition with no problems. Couldn't tell them apart from my D300 prints beside it. I could easily have gone up another size. Cheers :-)
  • I think we also need to look at what Fuji has done in a short period of time. Sure they have a long camera heritage but they were pretty much dead in the water before the introduction of the X100. ...
  • Yup; the main fact is that todays cameras are better than 99% of the photographers who use them (me included). We are really lucky to be so spoiled for choice!  :-)
  • I thought that I would hate an EVF; but after spending 12+ months with a V1 I know prefer its EVF than the D300's "tunnel" OVF any day! See; the old dogs, new tricks saying can be wrong!  :-)
  • I reckon Samsung already has a solid collection of lenses. The key point is that they are high quality and (in general) reasonably priced. I think that they will eventually lever off their phone ...
  • No worries! At least they are legit (they say it will be in stock in 2-weeks) ; not like so many of the online sellers here in NZ..... Most here say "in stock" and three weeks later (or more) it ...
  • That's a good price on the NX30!
  • Created discussions Samsung NX30 availability
    I (had) pretty much decided to get an NX30. So I ring Samsung New Zealand to inquire where I can go to see/hold one, as our local dealers (big box type stores) don't have them and don't know ...
  • But it is funny hearing people get on their high horses because someone likes/dislikes a particular brand of camera. I'd hate to hear them if someone criticised their choice of wife or husband!  ...
  • I've been using my V1's for all my magazine work now for close on 12-months. Double page spreads? No problems. Covers? No problem. Funny; all the magazine/newspaper guys used to laugh at me using ...
  • The problem on DPReview and in general is that most don't realise that practically every camera today is better than 99% of the photographers (me included). So by saying it is as good as the ...
  • Thanks everyone for your comments. Looks like a Samsung (maybe 2) is on my horizon.....  :-)
  • Thanks for that!!!  :-)
  • Created questions NX30 electronic shutter
    Is the NX30's electronic shutter silent? I've got to really like the silent electronic shutter on the V1. It's not a deal breaker if it hasn't, just keen to know.... As an aside; does the NX1000 ...
  • As an aside..... How does the low light (1600 & 3200asa) performance of the NX30 compare to a Nikon D300? Just wondering if someone may have one of each to compare....  Thanks  :-)
  • Funny; when I mention using Samsung I get funny looks from other photographers..... How can people be so rabid about camera brands? It's like you're criticizing their wives or something! ;-) As ...
