  • And what if there's no sky in your photo at all? Nowadays with post-processing it's so easy to darken and increase the saturation of the skies, I'd never use a polarizer for that effect. However, ...
  • Don't own either lens but this review in PC Mag (your first choice in photo equipment reviews! ;-) ) they say their Imatest test results are far superior for the Samsung NX lens in edge to edge ...
  • Great summary. I started shooting with a dedicated button for focussing way back when the Canon Elan 7E came out (i.e. in the last century ;-) ). Every Canon and Pentax camera I've had since then, ...
  • I agree with you as far as a lens lineup goes, but I'm not so sure I agree with you that Samsung knows rather well what they are doing overall. I have wanted to get my hands on a NX1 for many ...
  • I'm a RAW shooter, so yeah these are from RAW and developed in Lightroom CS. Very little post-processing done though. I set all White Balance to Daylight, tweaked exposure if needed (I ...
  • The firmware is the most up to date and the focus limiting works just fine. The problem is when the switch is set to FULL it still operates with the limited focussing that I set rather than the ...
  • Created photos Loving my new NX1
    I'm still learning, but loving my new NX1 + 16-50/2.8S & 50-150/2.8S system. I've never had a camera this responsive before and it's very fun to use. Thanks to those who've provided so much info ...
  • With the NX1 you can just run the files through Samsung's DNG converter and once they're converted to DNGs you should be able to run them through any RAW converter out there. Can you not to the ...
  • Just had a look at The Camera store and they've got more lenses up for clearance: (1) 16mm (2) 20mm (3) 30mm (4) 18-200mm The only Samsung lenses they don't list as clearance items ...
  • I just ordered my NX1 +16-50S + 50-150S + 10 Fisheye from The Camera Store, and am still awaiting the arrival of the fisheye. I too am hopeful that these lenses are being replaced/upgraded. The ...
  • I can change the limiter settings just fine, but they apply to both CUSTOM and FULL. I would expect them to only apply to CUSTOM but not FULL. I think where my play is is that the foot flexes, but ...
  • That is true for probably every lens on the planet on an APS-C body. The more you stop down the lens, the better the performance, until you stop down so much that diffraction starts to affect ...
  • I just received my Samsung 50-150mm f/2.8 S ED OIS lens yesterday and have noticed two issues with it (so far). I'm wondering whether it's just my copy, or whether these are common issues. I'm ...
  • The flash unit goes straight up, but the Fresnel lens on the front is angled a bit, so I imagine it throws a little light forward too. IMO this is a good thing, I usually use a card or other ...
  • Well just because the NX1 is a larger camera, that doesn't make the flash any less useful than it is for a smaller camera. If all you're looking for is a compact flash for bounce flash, ...
  • Thanks for your most excellent explanation creaDVty. My NX1+16-50S just arrived yesterday. I wouldn't have figured this out on my own and I'm only part way through the manual. I did however try ...
  • Your best bet is a neutral density filter to get longer exposure times. If you have a tripod, but no ND filter, then take multiple correctly exposed images, then stack them in Photoshop and you ...
  • Hmm, I have the exact same hardware you've got listed above other than the 120 GB SSD. No overclocking, but it is liquid cooled. My graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 7800 series card driving a ...
  • Viking79 who posts here often has posted his Imatest results for both of these lenses (mounted on NX20) on his website. I hope he doesn't mind me posting the links to his results here. The 30mm is here
  • Well he pretty much addressed that concern here: What Can You Do With Your Samsung NX1 The camera is just a tool to allow him to capture the light. If it's incapable of capturing the dynamic range, ...
