  • I've been happy with my 3D. I've mostly been shooting people and probably haven't tested the sharpness fully though. Bundled with NX300 it was effectively cheaper than 2D at the time. My ...
  • I would vote for 30mm - It is a great balance where you can get good bokeh, but also get pictures where everything is in focus without too much trouble, which makes it a very versatile lens. I like ...
  • 30mm f2 durability: I have carried NX300 with this lens in my front jeans pocket for 10 months now, w/ a slim Cokin UV filter and no lens cap. Sometimes i bump the camera into things when I walk ...
  • I use nikon lenses with my NX300 but these days mostly older MF ones. I have used: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-G-Lens-to-Samsung-NX-Mount-Camera-Adapter-Ring-For-NX5-NX-1000-NX210-NX200-/36061522 ...
  • I guess they are probably phasing it out in favor of the selfie-enabling NX300M, which seems to be substantially more expensive at the moment.
  • (NX300 user, haven't used NX30 just read about it.) Depends on your style of shooting. I personally have never had an issue with NX300 buffer because I tend to compose a long time between shots. ...
  • If you're fine with manual focus, I have the Samyang 85mm 1.4 and love it, I find it to be quite sufficiently sharp even at f1.4. So, that could be a better alternative to the nikon you mentioned. ...
  • Sorry probably misunderstood. If it's the smaller delay that's not full screen, I don't think you can get rid of that one...
  • You should be able to turn that off, fortunately. Menu ->Settings (Gear)->Help Guide Display->Mode Help Guide - set to off. - Ian
  • Just understood that apparently the situation may be the opposite for NX3000 in terms of the playback quality. That is truly quite strange (and unfortunate).
  • I'm pretty sure NX300 also shows a lower quality image in the instant playback. The problem on that camera is if you turn off the instant playback, and use the button, you have to wait for the ...
  • I believe NX30 has a specific baby monitor mode but I don't know how well it works. (Please be patient and delete your duplicate posts if possible. )
  • Oops, I think I often mentally filter out anything that doesn't seem like the highest available capture quality. But I guess in this case it's mostly just a different aspect ratio. (I'm still a ...
  • Some quick thoughts: - As mentioned, MF is the way to go. NX300 AF will probably hunt randomly and ruin shots. You can AF on your subject at the beginning to get started if desired. I think if you ...
  • My guess is you'd be happier if you managed to find something that has a manual aperture ring (probably hard for this type of lens). I do have a nikon adapter which allows aperture adjustments on ...
  • People seem to like the smart auto mode. I haven't used it much personally :). Looking at your gear list, pictures should be fairly comparable to your D5200 with a similar kit lens (e.g. 18-55), ...
  • Bit confused, says compatible models are "NX30, Galaxy NX, NX2000, NX300, NX20, NX210, NX1000, NX1100, NX200, NX100, NX10 " So, I think no problem there.
  • Perhaps if there was a bad lot and they were very quickly returned / another copy obtained from the same store, you could easily end up with multiple lenses with the same defect? Probably depends ...
  • 30mm is definitely always a solid option and a versatile lens. It would enable more high quality indoor photos if that's something you're interested in, and might also reduce the size of your ...
  • Nice pictures. NX30 should do at least as well as that sensor wise, but lens would likely be a bigger factor. I am assuming the 16mm pancake prime is being used here which wide open tends to have ...
