Re: Vast is Castile (hesitating)

Hi, sorry if I didn't reply before, I was quite busy on the weekend. Thanks everyone for the feedback, it's really really appreciated!!

Here are my answers and this evening I will try to post the third part of the series, devoted to the city of Avila.

Very nice shots! Why upgrade if you are happy with the results?

The advantage to the NX1000 is you get more flexibility. You can get cleaner images in lower light, use different lenses, etc. If you don't want/need that flexibility, the convenience of something like the EX1 is really nice

Hi, thank you. The strenght of one camera is the weakness of the othe other and viceversa. The NX1000 can use different lenses, has a swallow DOF, has a lot more pixels if you have to crop... on the other hand, the EX1 has everything you need in a small package, you don't have to worry about lenses (carrying them or changing them). I do, however, carry a small waistbag with some filters for the EX-1.

Some amazing shots. What a place to visit!!

You didn't post the shots from your NX.

If perhaps the way that you visualize a scene is the way that the EX1 'sees', then maybe you should ....

Replace your NX with that 18mm wide angle attachment they sell for the EX 1or 2.

Your first shot looked like it was begging for a wider view.

Hi ac, thanks. I don't have the NX yet, I'm just considering buying it :-). One of the reasons I'm seriously considering the NX1000 is the new 12-24, and also the 16mm, which makes the NX1000 a really small camera with a lot of power. I also considered buying some converter for the camera (I already own the kiwi adapter), but the APSC sensor has some added (and important!) benefits.
