On Real-world test: Going pro with the Samsung NX1 article (349 comments in total)
In reply to:

Adrien S: So... I totally need a body with these specs BUT A FULL-FRAME SENSOR.

On the day they release a FF body with similar specifications (and a comparatively low price!), Samsung can just take my money.

Dark goob - you have obviously gotten off on some strange tangent. Take a look around the photography forums on any website. It is VERY clear what is meant by "Full Frame". So, while you may have lost your way - everyone else is very clear on this website what is meant by full frame.

Sdaniella: if i ever opt for APSC, for me:
Samsung NX1 + 16-50mm f2.0-2.8 combo is most appealing of NX lens (I like 24mm ff.eq.fov)
or
Canon EOS 7DMkII only if they make an EF 15-45mm f2.0L IS STM ...
(24-70 ff.eq.fov; f3.2 ff.dof.eq)

if so
a good EF-to-NX adapter would be much welcome for those with lots of EF or TSE lenses

or an EF-to-NX Metabones Speedbooster

I think BarnET is right. Wide angle (most likely landscape) lens on a 10fps crop camera doesn't make a lot of sense. I too have never seen anyone shoot sports with a wide angle lens. For wide angle, landscape type stuff - go with a FF option, like an A7R.

Adrien S. - Do you really NEED the few millimeters of DOF that a 200 f/1.8 gives you for portraits? I think Samsung has a very fine 85/1.4 lens. If you can't make a nice portrait with that lens you might be in the wrong business.

Adrien - my understanding is you should wait for the Sony A9. FF sensor, AND should have better than A6000 AF speed (and also probably burst rate). The A9 should be what you are looking for. But honestly - I don't know why you NEED a FF body. But anyway that is my 2c.

dark goob: I love how they never mentioned battery life, once, in this video.

If you buy a $2800 kit, I am sure a few spare batteries won't break the bank.

armandino: Got to love 1 year camera iterations if so. Perfect way to keep the business up and your money worth down

I assume you are talking about the money worth of Sony? Why are you worried? We are getting good products with lots of innovation refreshed often. What's to complain about?

In reply to:

Joseph Black: Nice camera, or promising at least (despite the fact that it suffers from having menus, controls, and ergonomics deigned by Sony, and I know that is entirely subjective so ignore if you disagree), but at what point does image stabilization become the next megapixel war or whatever other spec. war one can think of? I'm sure there are plenty of circumstances where amazing IS is useful, but if you can shoot handheld at 1 second you'd better have a statue in your sights if you want a blur free image. It's another full frame camera and that's great for competition, but I don't see anything to get all in a tizzy about.
Buy a tripod ladies and gents. Seriously, it's one of the most necessary tools one can own. And if you want some serious IS right now on your camera get a monopod, too.

Joseph - tripods are not always an option. Even if you can carry one - you won't always want to get it out if you are just experimenting with some motion blur (like water or people). So, those images will be missed. Me personally - I don't do much of that. I have tripods and they get used very infrequently (more often for video purposes).

BikeSalon: Great photo! Do you recommend this camera to beginners?

What a lucky beginner! You mean - first camera ever? A D750! Wow. I wish I had those problems when I was a beginner.

In reply to:

brownie314: to all the people complaining about the "adds for Canon". Lets assume - worst case scenario - Canon is paying DPR to get some space in the articles section. So what - you are getting all of this content for free. So you have to skip over a few articles that you are not interested in - what harm is done? On the up side - they are funding reviews of other equipment. So lets say Canon is behind this - get over it. Doing all of this equipment review isn't cheap.

I don't think Canon paid for it. She works for a news organization - I am pretty sure they paid for it.

You mean it is stupid to sell ad space on your website? Not sure how else they would make money.

I suspected as much. But there will always be people on here who think that is the case. I was just saying - if they are - who cares.

In reply to:

Boss of Sony: Apart from video, I can't understand the 4/3 sensor thing, especially in a camera this size. Sony is making the same size cameras or smaller, with APS-C or full-frame sensors.

BarnET - yes whichever resolution is needed for 4K in 16:9 mode - that is the one I meant. I think you are right - it is 12MP. That is the 1" sensor Sony should make. If it had clean ISO 3200 (or even 1600) I would be on board with that sensor.

BarnET - yes, I am on board with 1". I think the lenses can be made small enough and the IQ is good enough for most situations. I just wish Sony would do with the 1" sensor what they did with the A7s - make a 10MP version that has super low noise. 10MP is more than enough for most things - and noise is the problem right now with 1".

n4/3 makes perfect sense. It's about the lenses. Considering most people who are advanced amateur and up have most of their money tied up in lenses - not bodies. And the lenses for m4/3 are much smaller than aps-c or FF. So you can buy an army of lenses for m4/3 - then have a nice big body like the GH4 when you need all the external controls and ergonomics. Then also have a body like the GM1 when you need something small and discrete. All with the same lens mount. I don't know of another lens mount you can do this with.

In reply to:

brownie314: So p1ssed that Canon could not find an engineer on the EOS-M team that could figure a way to get this mode dial + exposure compensation dial on the EOS-M. Would have made a world of difference.

rrccad - agreed - I don't use exposure comp that much either. If I have a situation where my meter can be tricked, I just use manual exposure, or I point as something where the meter won't be tricked and use exposure lock.

Is this better than the camera in the phone? In my opinion 1" is the new normal - anything less is pointless in a stand alone camera.
