Sports Dad: Look! Another $1000 apsc mirrorless camera that can't match 1/2 the specs of the now defunct NX1 from back in 2014. :)

The Pen-F looks cooler and its features are more attractive to me.

Firmware v1.4 for the NX1 was released by Samsung on August 21, 2015.
Both reviews by DPReview and by ImageResource were made months before so, certainly with a different version, probably both with v.1.32.

Ok, have understood what you wanted to say, but you have not said. You can not define total blackout.
Total blackout is total black-out!
Mean black, white, or any color you like, showing nothing of the scene, or a frozen image.
Do not play with the definitions please.
Slide show is another thing, but the view during a burst of 15 fps (permitted only by the last firmware upgrade, v1.4), during recording, hardly can be defined slide show!
Is close to a live view of ... say, 50 Hz refresh?
You want more?
Do you need to chase the bullets in a battlefield? Be careful someone don't hit you and go to shot with this Sony A6300, may be it's better also for erratically moving UFOs.

The slide show is indeed possible, when you review the recorded shots that are inside a folder of a single sequence of burst.
Yes, this is a real slide show.
Not during recording/shooting with Samsung NX1 at high fps rate.

MFiftysomething: They played it safe with the design ...spot the difference; effective but not sexy!

The sensor sounds good but the 16:9 lcd and EVF, no touch screen or IBIS makes it look expensive

papa natas,

you seem to think simplistically, at a low level, with your "pen" and with blinders installed, at times.
You can see and observe a sexy body recognize it as sexy and does not necessarily have orgasmic reactions, erections or other uncontrolled physical movements, for girls, animals or objects.

NO!
brendon1000, what are you saying?!

"The NX1 was a very good camera no doubt but it was like every other mirrorless camera out there with total blackout at high fps shooting"?
Wrong, false!

First, the NX1 is. Still is for me and for everyone that have it!
So please don't say: was.
Second, there is NO black-out in fast shoting/burst mode.
You can see live all the shots of 14 or 15 fps!
No black at all! I have two NX1 bodies ... for now.
And also the little NX500 have no black-out!
Clear? Fifteen frames per second for the NX1 with Amoled live view showing you all the frames.
LIVE!
IS!

From aluminum to copper?
To me this still seem a poor, low-end tecnology, that cannot offer the maximum of the efficency.

I understand you well futurewah,

and I had responded to myself in the same way regarding the not-gold wires technology, but dangerous for whom?
For industries that could suffer a further drop in sales after someone has read this natural consideration, made perhaps too ahead of its time?
Better to remain silent or say: it's okay is the right choice, you can not do better now, and above all we have to slowly sip the technological improvements, particulary because this practice has a greater economic return for you?

Are you sure, dpreview staff, that rather is not 40k?!

Claudio NC: "TI: Samsung’s processing engines are so powerful, as in the NX1. But a camera is more than just a processor. It’s a lens, sensor, processor, ergonomics and operability and also [customer] service and everything."

Yes! And Samsung have (... have had?) almost all of this, except, may be, the customer service and wide range of lenses.
But in few years it have produced very good and excellent lenses, with few exceptions. What a pity that has stopped or is about to stop his adventure, with no other future, after have reached a so high level.
I hope to be wrong about this last point.

Ok, Samsung missed 'heart' for photography, if this is the real meaning of the TT comment, I am agree with you and I agree also with the rest you said, but to my eyes the sentence wrote here, do not mean this.

To avoid the risk of being too quickly stopped in the event of a malfunction, after an used NX1, like new, I bought a second unit and also the NX500. I hope to don't break some lens, but I would still be able to use a large park of lenses of many brands with adapters.
For my photography, I don't need AF.

"Great interview, great questions"?
Please!
I agree with ideefix. Very boring interview.
Too few interesting questions, many are trivial and useless.
Ask if they plan to do an upgrade of the X-T1 with the new sensor 24 megapixel?
No? Was too much?!
----------------------------------
Barney, "They bayer-pattern is very simple, but we chose X-Trans"
They?
----------------------------------
TT: I am not surprised. I think that their cameras are mechanically good, but something is missing. Heart, or emotion. That’s just my personal opinion.

Baaah!
Saying what Toru?
Samsung processing engine is powerful, operativity is very fast, clear, smart and, just that, give that plus and comfort that can easly reach the heart, give emotions and forget the anger gifted from years by others. You must try, then you can speak about.
Others still do not have at all this usefull features, for the user, are you reading me, Sony? Could you please at least copy from Samsung for your A7 segment?!

In reply to:

Low Budget Dave: The NX1 is an amazing camera. It is not even all that dated; the technology is still competitive with the best that Sony, Canon, and Nikon have to offer.

But very few people will buy a camera from a company that desperately wants out of the camera business.

shademaster,
please don't be silly!
In case you will not notice, I say today that your prediction is nonsense, the delirium of an incompetent!

Period!

Claudio NC: 2 of 2

So if I am obliged to bring an equipment much more heavy to attempt to mitigate the camera vibrations produced during shooting, I am to do something that would like not to do anymore, after so many years of mishaps and ruined pictures under some conditions.
The technology allows it, finally!

Cameras as Sony A7, A7S, A7II, A7RII, Fujifilm X-T1 (with the e-shutter activated), Sigma dpM, dpQ, etc. even on a light, thin tripod, if remote controlled without touching them, and/or with shutter delay, are immune from vibrations/shock problems (if there is no wind of course).

And want say also that that Fuji hardly creates blur with his light mechanical shutter, but have other problems ...

2 of 2

But using his fast BKT 5 shots mode or the burst mode, shoting become a disaster under 1/200 sec. at 200mm focal lenghts, almost all are from blurred to extremly blurred.
On the tripod.
However in multy quick shot mode even Sony A7 fails, don't do much better.

Zero blur with Sony A7S activating his full electronic shutter that do not give any shutter shock, (single and burst mode) all in the total silence!

No HaR, you are wrong and you do not understand!
Hold? I don't hold it in hand...

Could you see that here from the begining in this post I am referring, above all, to the shooting mode with the E-shutter option enabled, both with Samsung NX1 and with others, as Sony A7?
Can you understand what I mean ... even if you have that extraordinary Canon without this option?
You know the technology of the so-called electronic first curtain of Sony A7 (as also of other few cameras)?

Is not a full electronic shutter, use both, the electronic as first step and the mechanical one after.
Hybrid.
When activated, Sony A7 give blur free shots, also with 1000 mm lenses!
Samsung NX1 instead can have problems, and these problems for what I have seen these last days are erratic.
Not always and not always with the same couple time & aperture at the same focal lenght.
So it happens with Samsung 50-150/2.8 in single shot mode.

Please!
50 mm?!
Why not 16mm?

You must try with longer focal lengths and under 1/160 (1 sec ... 1/160), come on HowaboutSHOCK!

What about? Have you read?
Do you prefer I write all in Latin?

Yesterday I redid some shots on my target test chart.
I can only confirm what I have already said, except that camera shake appear with greater evidence on horizontal lines (not on vertical ones, as I wrote before, was going from memory).
If I have time I'll post picts somewhere.

Meanwhile HowaR, why not try to make some shots (not hundreds) with 50-150 in landscape orientation (150mm with 1/30 s) ...?!
