  • 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 ...
  • I am debating the same 2 lenses. Let me ask a specific question: For the Samsung 12-24mm owners, what focal lengths do you end up actually using the lens at? Is it mostly close to 12mm anyway, or ...
  • Money wise the 45mm kit is probably a better deal - but it likely won't work well if you're planning for that to be your only lens.
  • Yeah, that is sort of a tough one actually. I think some of my biggest fears were actually if I wanted fancier lenses later, they just aren't available for NX. (Including less third party lens ...
  • I think people are starting to pay a little more attention, but it can still take a while to get more mainstream adoption. I think in many cases, consumers might just feel more comfortable buying ...
  • I feel like most people who are going to drop $1300 on a lens would want to know its aperture, not just the pros...
  • I carry my nx300 + 30mm in a pants pocket every day. (very slim UV filter + no lens cap). Sometimes I run into things but nothing has broken yet (maybe 8+ months?). Some pants it fits much better ...
  • I have also considered getting the 12-24, but was a little worried after reading some odd reports of it breaking: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3549178#forum-post-52195834 Has anyone else ...
  • I like the idea of trying to just use MF even with the Samsung lenses. I find MF often does let me find a better balance between the focus of different subjects in the image. When buying the ...
  • Haven't tried too many but one of my favorites so far is my Micro-Nikkor 55mm 2.8. Fun to try out macro (well 1:2) without spending $500, and works pretty well for portraits too. I think it helps ...
